M-net selects Actelis EFM solutions to extend product portfolio

Telecom Lead Europe: Actelis, a broadband acceleration
company, announced that German service provider M-net Telekommunikations
is extending its product portfolio for business customers using EFM solutions
from Actelis.


M-net is extending its portfolio in the area of Carrier
Ethernet broadband services.


With solutions from Actelis, M-net will be able to offer
high bit rate Ethernet services at bandwidths of 20Mbps on existing copper
pairs and over higher distances in the areas of Internet access, point-to-point
connectivity and VPN networks.


“M-net will offer more Ethernet services with OAM
features (Operation, Administration and Maintenance), according to the
requirements of the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF),” said Michael
Freudenblum, director of central IP-systems at M-net.


M-net intends to establish a long-term partnership for
delivery and support with 3M Services, which is a preferred service partner of
Actelis in Germany.


“Our customers have already experienced many years
of quality products developed by Actelis. Providers have an alternative to
fiber when business customers ask for bandwidths of 10Mbps and more. Actelis’
EFM products offer a very cost-effective and reliable solution over copper
pairs in which over 100Mbps via SHDSL can be achieved,” said Manfred
Brandt, general manager of 3M Services.


Actelis’ EFMplus technology uses the most
advanced signal processing methods and DSM (Dynamic Spectrum Management) in
order to ensure reliable and highly performing Ethernet services.


The Carrier Ethernet technology from Actelis is
certified, according to specifications MEF9, MEF10, MEF14 and MEF18.


As regional network operator, M-net provides future-proof
communication technology to large parts of Bavaria and the big area of Ulm. The
communications services of M-net are available in approximately 120 local
exchange networks.
