The ML684D Industrial Ethernet Access Device (EAD) from Actelis® is a small form factor Add-Drop EAD that enables delivery of symmetrical high-speed Ethernet services over existing copper and fibre infrastructure. Up to 60 Mbps of symmetrical Ethernet traffic over copper and 1Gbps over fibre.

Designed for Industrial, utility and traffic applications, The ML684D takes in two fibre ports or four copper pairs and allows them to be split into two directions, east and west, thereby allowing multiple nodes to be connected over copper or fibre in a linear chain or ring configuration. Each node has full switching capabilities and can drop and add Ethernet traffic at each location while transferring the rest of the traffic through. The ML684D offers extremely small factor and DIN rail mounting for flexible deployment within utilities, traffic and industrial cabinets. With its superior performance, extensive functionality, high robustness and reliability, the ML684D EAD offers rapid service delivery and allows for complete utilisation of the existing network infrastructure.

Interoperable with any standard Ethernet switch, router or hub and compliant with Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) specifications, ML684D EAD systems seamlessly integrate into carrier Ethernet networks. Equipped with six 10/100Base-T Ethernet interfaces and two 100/1000Base-FX Small Form Factor (SFP) port, the ML684D EAD allows assignment of a service or a customer per port.

The ML684D is a hardened EAD designed for flexible deployment in harsh environments. It complies with NEMA 4 extended temperature requirements and K.21/K.45 for extended protection against over-voltages and over-currents.

Powered by Actelis Networks' award-winning, patented EFMplus™ technology, the rate, reach and reliability are increased significantly using advanced Dynamic Spectrum Management (DSM) techniques. This technology provides the best rate/reach performance, most resilient fibre-quality transmission while ensuring high reliability.

The ML684D EAD provides 802.1q VLAN-aware wire-speed bridging, double tagging (VLAN stacking) for end-user VLAN transparency, L2 (Ethernet priority), L3 (ToS/Diff- Serv) classification with four traffic classes, RSTP/STP, Link Aggregation, band-width monitoring, Multicast/Broadcast limiting, as well as IGMP bandwidth snooping for video distribution applications.

The ML684D EAD provides proactive and dynamic tools for enhanced trouble shooting and monitoring capabilities. Advanced Carrier-class EFM OAM, including 802.3ah, CFM (802.1ag) and Y.1731 (ITU), are incorporated, offering both physical link as well as service level end-to-end advanced troubleshooting mechanisms.

The MetaASSIST™ View graphical craft application and the MetaASSIST EMS multi-platform Element Management System offer in- and out-of-band management of the ML684D. Management protocols include standard TL1 command line interface and SNMP using standard MIBs for seamless integration with third-party Network Management Systems (NMS).
