ML684D Ethernet Access Device
The ML684D Industrial Ethernet Access Device
(EAD) from Actelis® is a small form factor Add-Drop
EAD that enables delivery of symmetrical highspeed Ethernet services over existing copper and
fiber infrastructure. Up to 60 Mbps of symmetrical
Ethernet traffic over copper and 1Gbps over fiber.
Designed for Industrial, utility and traffic applications, The
ML684D takes in two fiber 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 fiber 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 utilization of the existing network
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
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 overvoltages 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 fiber-quality
transmission while ensuring high reliability.
The ML684D EAD provides 802.1q VLAN-aware wirespeed bridging, double tagging (VLAN stacking) for end-user
VLAN transparency, L2 (Ethernet priority), L3 (ToS/DiffServ) 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
The MetaASSIST™ View
graphical craft application
and the MetaASSIST EMS
multi-platform Element
