Actelis Receives Order For City of Napa Intelligent Traffic Management System
FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Actelis Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASNS) (“Actelis” or the “Company”), a market leader in cyber-hardened, rapid deployment networking solutions for IoT applications, today announced that its hybrid-fiber connectivity solution has been recently deployed at traffic intersections throughout the City of Napa, California. Actelis’ local partner, Econolite, ordered and installed the solution, completing an Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) upgrade project at some of the busiest intersections in the city.
The City of Napa is the cultural center of California wine country, and its vibrant downtown is home to many local restaurants, wine tasting rooms, boutiques, and public art installments. Like many popular destinations where there is a strong combination of drivers, bikers, and pedestrians, Napa is very concerned with traffic safety. In September 2022, City Council adopted Napa’s Local Roadway Safety Plan (LRSP) which created a framework to systematically identify and analyze traffic safety related issues and recommend projects and countermeasures. Two key elements of the LRSP are:
Sitting inside the city’s traffic cabinets, the newly installed Actelis hybrid-fiber switches provide fiber-grade connectivity to the intersection, transporting critical traffic related information back to the city’s traffic operations center. In order to reduce the number of collisions, traffic signal patterns can be modified, and Actelis’ system enables the city to make remote signal timing changes as needed.
The City of Napa and Econolite chose Actelis for this important project fo two main reasons – networking flexibility and security. From a networking perspective, the City has fiber at some of its intersections and copper at others. Actelis’ hybrid-fiber switches and MetaASSIST Element Management System are uniquely designed to drive fiber-grade services over fiber OR existing copper while managing a mixed fiber/copper network. This flexible solution saves many months of permitting and civil works that is typically required for new fiber construction in locations where fiber is not currently installed. Faster project deployment, along with savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars on labor and construction equipment, makes Actelis the perfect choice for Napa.
The city has high standards for network security and works closely with its vendors to ensure that proper security settings are in place. Actelis has engineered its devices with secure data delivery algorithms, helping to keep city networks safe, especially at the edge of the network where IoT devices are vulnerable.
“We pride ourselves on getting the most out of the network infrastructure that is already available and shielding the network from attacks,” said Tuvia Barlev, Chairman and CEO of Actelis. “Our ability to boost the performance of existing copper to fiber quality as well as the capability to extend fiber connectivity within the same network, while utilizing cyber-hardened protocols, makes us unique and helps our customers lower their network infrastructure costs and accelerate project timelines.”
