Kansas-based KGP Logistics, a single-source provider of equipment and integrated services, inked an exclusive distribution agreement with Silicon Valley’s Actelis Networks to stock and distribute Actelis’ new Broadband Accelerator (BBA) product line.

The Actelis BBA reportedly boosts broadband rates by as much as 100 percent on typical loops and more than 400 percent on long loops. With simple plug-and-play installation, an environmentally hardened, standards-based BBA can be installed with a cable splicer. The product typically is placed in the middle of the ADSL loop between the central office and the customer’s location, and is powered by the existing wireline connection.

Recently, the Federal Communications Commission unveiled plans for a program designed to deliver voice service to rural America – the Connect America Fund aimed at delivering broadband service to unserved and underserved Americans. In the overhauled system, the FCC targets 2018 for delivering universal broadband service to millions of people who are currently without broadband service or have limited access. The partners say that by using Actelis Networks’ BBA, “U.S. carriers have an economical solution to deploy universal broadband service now.”

"Universal broadband solutions for every American are here and are currently being developed and manufactured by Actelis Networks and will be distributed nationwide by KGP Logistics, which has a distribution network consisting of seven stocking locations throughout the United States," says Trevor Putrah, president/COO at KGP Logistics. "Applying KGP’s core competency of complete supply-chain management will ensure Actelis product is in stock, available and delivered to service providers across the country."
