Actelis Selected by the City of Eugene for Traffic Modernization Project
Oregon’s second largest city deploys Actelis’ hybrid fiber-copper networking solutions to enable IoT connectivity for better traffic management
FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Actelis Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASNS) (“Actelis” or the “Company”) a market leader in cyber-hardened, rapid deployment networking solutions for wide area IoT applications, today announced that the City of Eugene, Oregon has selected Actelis’ hybrid fiber-copper networking solutions as part of its most recent traffic modernization project. Eugene is the second largest city in the State of Oregon and home to the University of Oregon.
The city’s Transportation Management Plan aims to triple the current rate of transit by foot, bicycles, and public transport by the year 2035. As an important milestone towards 2035, Eugene needs to modernize and digitize its intersections to ensure smooth vehicle traffic flow while simultaneously prioritizing signals for pedestrians and bikers – a challenge all major cities face.
As part of this modernization, Eugene is adding Actelis’ hybrid fiber-copper ethernet access devices integrated with new traffic controllers to manage traffic flow through several different IoT devices, including cameras and radar detection sensors. Actelis’ multifunctional solutions enable and extend connectivity to all of these devices while securely supplying the city’s operations center with live data. Additionally, the Company’s MetaAssist back-office software management system is used to remotely monitor the performance and status of each network element, ensuring high uptime of the system. MetaAssist also provides an added level of security allowing users to control various security-related parameters including system and resource access control.
The Actelis hybrid fiber-copper solution was chosen because it allows the city to utilize its existing twisted pair copper infrastructure to instantly deploy new traffic cameras and sensors, while also enabling connectivity over fiber if the city eventually transitions away from copper.
“We are very pleased to be part of Eugene’s modernization of its traffic management system. The selection by the city proves yet again the competitive edge of our solutions,” said Tuvia Barlev, chairman and CEO of Actelis. “Our hybrid fiber-copper solutions give cities the network building blocks they need for their infrastructure of today, while simultaneously making them ready for fiber installation in the future. By that, we help cities like Eugene to save not only a tremendous amount of time for deployment, but also to make room in their budgets.”
For traffic management system projects in the City of Eugene, Actelis partners with Western Systems, one of its trusted ITS resellers. Western Systems works with city, state, and county agencies across the western United States to implement state-of-the-art traffic solutions, providing the devices necessary to efficiently control the intersection. They utilize Actelis’ solutions to deliver the necessary connectivity for the IoT devices they provide to their clients.
Actelis provides its solutions in over 300 cities around the globe including Washington, DC; Seattle, WA; San Jose, CA; and Vancouver, British Columbia.

Minico head coach Clay Robinson admitted to feeling a “little disappointment” in Saturday’s final round of the 2023 Idaho High School Wrestling State Championships. Joseph Terry, one of the team’s leaders, acknowledged the Spartans “didn’t wrestle to our best.”That’s just how good this wrestling team is: Minico won its second straight 4A state championship, anyway. It was the third in a row for the Magic Valley, too — Jerome won in 2021. We’ve got each other’s backs, no matter what,” said Vail, who won the 220-pound title by pinning Mountain Home’s Demetri Smith in the second period. There were jitters, too, for Vail — even as a defending state champion who had lost just once all season.1 month ago Twin Falls Times-News

Wilhelm: More on Jacksons, Willow Hill and efforts to share insight into African American history Willow Hill concentrates on African American HistoryDr. Alvin Jackson, who served at the Community Health Services in Fremont in the late 20th century, says the Willow Hill Heritage and Renaissance Center in Bulloch County, Georgia, aims to provide Americans with insight into the values of African American history and culture as related to American history and culture. Today, he said the center focuses on local, state and national African American history, but quickly pointed out “a lot of work is done in genealogy because a lot of African American people have lost contact with their history.” To help people reach into their own history, the center has a collection of more than 18,000 obituaries and is adding to the collection regularly. He continues to practice medicine part time and serves as president of the Georgian African American Historic Preservation Network. The 1988 National History Day Exhibit tells the history of the Willow Hill School won first place in the Junior Division at the National History Day Competition in Washington, D.C.

Lake Geneva flourished during the decades following the Civil War. The key to this flourishing was the restoration of the railroad connection between Chicago and Lake Geneva in 1871. They were the vanguard of many wealthy Chicagoans who would buy land and build summer mansions on the shores of Geneva Lake, a development that would result in Lake Geneva becoming one of the premium summer resorts in the United States. Many of the leading citizens in Lake Geneva during the second half of the 19th Century were Civil War veterans. The station’s capacious waiting room became one of Lake Geneva’s “social centers.”On Jan. 1, 1900, residents of Lake Geneva celebrated the first turn of a century in the city’s history.1 month ago Lake Geneva News
