Actelis Launches Unique, Ultra Low Power In-Building Gigabit Connectivity
Solution For Instant Service Provisioning of Multi-Tenant Units
Tens of Millions of MTUs Can Now Be Quickly Serviced By Network Providers
FREMONT, CA, October 24, 2023 — Actelis Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASNS) (“Actelis” or the “Company”), a market leader in cyber-hardened, rapid deployment networking solutions for IoT applications, today announced the official launch of the GigaLine 900, a first of its kind product designed to solve the challenge of delivering broadband services from the curb throughout apartments, office buildings, hotels, and other multi-tenant units (MTUs). Network providers around the world can utilize this new broadband solution to deliver Gigabit services to tenants instantly without the high construction and labor costs of rewiring buildings with fiber.
According to a Parks Associates study, over 30% of US residents live in apartments and multi-family units and 50% report experiencing network issues. While there are many government-led initiatives to bring fiber connectivity to every tenant, the implementation cost is very high which is a major burden on network providers’ ROI. Additionally, rewiring buildings is a time-consuming endeavor that is inconvenient for tenants and is often met with objection from landlords.
Actelis’ new GigaLine 900 makes it very fast, simple, and cost effective for providers to connect tenants to high-speed internet without installing fiber throughout the building. A flexible hybrid fiber-copper-coax solution, the GigaLine 900 is a very low power, Ethernet GE/PON splitter-extender delivering Gigabit connectivity to tenants utilizing the existing wiring already in the walls of the building. A key benefit of this new solution is that it can be installed in as fast as 1 hour, allowing providers to connect entire apartment and office buildings to Gigabit broadband services immediately.
The GigaLine 900 is the intelligent connection point between the fiber running to the building and the existing coax or twisted pair that already exists inside the building. GigaLine 900 utilizes a 2.5 GBPS or 1 GBPS uplink and provides symmetrical Gigabit service for up to 16 tenant units. The device consumes only a few watts providing landlords and tenants year over year saving on their energy bills.
“There is over $40 billion of new government funding available for fiber installation in the United States alone, but the costs of the last section - getting fiber all the way to tenants - is tremendously high and the funding will not be enough to reach everyone,” said Tuvia Barlev, chairman and CEO of Actelis. “With GL900 we are in a unique position to help providers maximize their funding to quickly deliver broadband services while making it very cost effective to reach each tenant.”
As previously reported, Actelis showcased its new GigaLine 900 solution at the Broadband Communities Summit in May 2023, helping to generate interest from local and state agencies as well as network providers and system integrators. This week, Actelis will again showcase the GigaLine 900, at Network X 2023 in Paris, one of the largest telecommunications industry events globally.
“We have seen great interest from the market in the GigaLine 900,” said Barlev. “Our customers see that they can utilize this new solution to generate faster revenues, maximize their labor force, and increase customer satisfaction immediately.”
