Actelis Networks to Modernize US Air Force Base Networking Capacities

The U.S. Air Force has selected the California-based hardened network solutions provider Actelis Networks to modernize on-base networking.

Under the deal, Actelis will provide its hybrid fiber-copper networking solutions to extend connectivity to 41 sites within an unnamed Air Force base and enable data services and mission-critical systems monitoring and control. The company was chosen because of its ability to deliver hardened fiber-grade performance using existing network infrastructure.

Work under the deal is expected to save users hundreds of thousands of dollars per site and minimize installation times. Work will be done in partnership with the Colorado-based company ESS Networks and the California-based company IP Integration Inc., Actelis said.

The contract comes after other military facilities started modernization efforts in recent months.

In June, the U.S. Central Command completed a six-month modernization effort that improved communications systems at the 1st Theater Sustainment Command Operational Command Post. The six-month effort enabled Starlink connectivity, which delivered significant improvements over the 20 megabits per second offered by the base’s previous network.

In May, Eglin Air Force Base received the Real-Time Inventory Management, which uses radio frequency identification tags to monitor the entry and exit of weapons and other pieces of equipment. The RFID-based solution allows airmen to finish inventory within a day.
