To Backhaul 3G Cellular Base Stations

Actelis’ MetaLIGHT Solution Enables Cellular Data to Move Along Common
Copper

23 May 2005 - Telekom Slovenije, in partnership with Masterline, has deployed
the Actelis Networks® Inc. MetaLIGHT® platforms to backhaul 3G cellular
base stations. Actelis is a worldwide leader in delivering broadband over
copper solutions that enable profitable, carrier-grade, broadband services
using the existing copper infrastructure.

Telekom Slovenije is using Actelis’ MetaLIGHT platforms to provide
high quality bandwidth to connect 3G cellular base stations (Node-B) that
are reachable only by copper, delivering high quality bandwidth to the
radio network controller (RNC). Telekom Slovenije delivers those services
for Mobitel, its cellular subsidiary.

“Actelis’ MetaLIGHT is an excellent solution for us,” said Mr
Miran Seuing of Telekom Slovenije. “It provides a highly reliable
link over copper pairs with an excellent bit error rate (BER). We embrace
the robust MetaLOOP® technology with its high-quality transmission,
small transmission delay, modularity in terms of capacity and interfaces,
and the ability to monitor the performance of the system. It enables us
to quickly respond to market demands and provide services to our customers,
including our subsidiary, Mobitel.”

Masterline and Telekom Slovenije tested and evaluated several solutions,
with Actelis’ MetaLIGHT the only solution able to provide the necessary
reach to remote areas, reliable high-bandwidth, flexibility, as well as
fast and easy deployment. As a result, the MetaLIGHT solution has been
successfully implemented into Telekom Slovenije’s network and will
continue to answer rising customer demands with the MetaLIGHT portfolio
of products.

“Actelis is extremely pleased to have Telekom Slovenije deploying
the MetaLIGHT to extend the reach of its telecommunications network,” said
Ronen Peleg, Actelis Networks vice president of sales for EMEA. “MetaLIGHT
solutions enable service providers like Telekom Slovenije to respond to
the demands of their customers by providing the best-of-breed solution
for carrier-class quality, high performance and synchronisation capabilities
that fit cellular networks. Actelis looks forward to a continued and increasing
relationship with Telekom Slovenije and Masterline.”

Actelis’ award-winning product portfolio enables system integrators,
service providers, and private network operators to use the existing copper
infrastructure to provide premium long-reach voice, video and data services
quickly and universally. Available in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint
configurations, Actelis' standards-based MetaLIGHT platforms deliver up
to 70 Mbps of high-quality traffic to customers or locations over the existing
copper plant.

Powered by Actelis' patented MetaLOOP® technology, Actelis platforms
provide far better rate, reach and reliability than other Ethernet-over-Copper
solutions. With the ability to provide high-quality bandwidth to distances
beyond 6km, Actelis' platforms are ideal to support a wide range of broadband
applications including backhauling of 3G/UTMS base stations, WiFi and DSLAMs.
They are also well suited to transparent LAN services, LAN interconnection,
and voice and video over IP.
