In 2009 AB Medica Group, following its long-term strategy regarding business diversification, established A TLC srl targeting the acquisition of some strategic assets of Aethra SpA, a leading player in the international telecommunication arena with more than 30-years of history. The acquisition was completed in 2010 and led to the creation of one of the most prominent Italian vendors of access networks equipment. Recognising the value of Aethra’s historic name as synonym of Quality and Innovation in the market, A TLC is promoting “AETHRA TELECOMMUNICATIONS” as sole commercial brand for its solutions.
The strength of AETHRA TELECOMMUNICATIONS’s commercial offer is represented by access routers with integrated VoIP functionality.
Thanks to a huge expertise in PSTN voice (with more than 6 million ISDN terminals worldwide installed ), AETHRA TELECOMMUNICATIONS has specialised its offers in VoIP applications by developing one of the most competitive and attractive product line for the SOHO/SMB/SME market addressing any need in terms of requested voice interfaces (ISDN BRIs NT/TE, FXS/FXO, ISDN PRI).
These exceptional products have distinguished AETHRA TELECOMMUNICATIONS as a leader in the telecommunications industry worldwide, reflecting its expertise in bringing cutting-edge communications technologies to the market.
With an installed base exceeding 300k units, addressing SoHo and SMB needs, AETHRA TELECOMMUNICATIONS is an established player and market leader for integrated access devices and routers, offering:
AETHRA TELECOMMUNICATIONS’s product portfolio is also completed by a line of ShDSL CPEs dedicated to support Network Operators in seamless migration of their cash-cow legacy data connections (Frame Relay, Leased Lines) on broadband (DSLAM/ATM based) infrastructure.
The portfolio, worth of 300k ports shipped over the years, includes single and dual pair SHDSL NTs providing Circuit Emulation Services over ATM and/or Frame Relay to ATM interworking with a variety of user interfaces (G.703/G.704 120Ω/75Ω, V.35/V.36/X.21).
Being part of AB Medica Group represents a major opportunity to consolidate and expand the well-known Aethra’s access network business in terms of technology innovation, product portfolio enlargement and market push thanks to the investments that AETHRA TELECOMMUNICATIONS will be able to guarantee in the close future.
Synergies found in the medium-long term with AB Medica, may also result in the start-up of a new division developing solutions and systems for emerging and high-potential applications such as telemedicine.

Aethra® Telecommunications FTTC Remote Power Feeding
“Fiber-to-the-Cabinet” (FTTC) technology enables carriers to offer superfast broadband access to their customers. FTTC brings fiber up to the street cabinet and then uses VDSL2 over the existing copper, reaching up to 100Mbps in download and 50 Mbps in upload. Street cabinets are equipped with xDSL mini-DSLAMs and the key issues come down to powering them and managing the physical installation in usually restricted spaces.
Aethra® Telecommunications RPF2000 System is a Remote Power Feeding is a compact and modular solution that solves both problems, and it’s designed to power the mini-DSLAMs remotely from the exchange using the cabinet ‘s copper pairs.
Each copper pair can provide up to 21 W at +/-175 V, and the system can inject xDSL in the same copper pairs used for remote powering. Together with the powering services, Aethra® Telecommunications RPF2000 System gives the possibility to manage the system remotely.
Aethra® Telecommunications FTTdP carrier solutions
Aethra® Telecommunications HGV1+ is a solution based on Fiber-to-the-Distribution-Point, a revolutionary fiber/copper hybrid approach that allows up to 100Mbps symmetrical access speeds to the customer.
FTTdP solves the problems related to the deployment of superfast fiber broadband, taking care of the key issues of FTTB and FTTH technologies:
A TLC inherited from Aethra 30 years of experience in internal testing and calibration laboratories concerning
The very basic idea is to transmit voice samples in data packets taking advantage of multiplexing feature of AAL2 adaptation layer over ATM (on ADSL or ShDSL links) in order to simultaneously transport multiple phone calls on multiple AAL2 channel.
Along with the capability to convey phone calls, SV1042 had also the router functionality in order to allow multiple user PCs to be connected to Internet at the same time.
Field installations of SV1042 started at the beginning of 2003 and 80.000 units have been deployed during four years. In the meantime (2005) Aethra released also the Voice over Ip (VoIP) solution, adopted by BT Italia in 2007, but tens of thousands VoATM users are still (2011) active due to reliability and robustness of the solution.
Main challenges of the whole operation relied on complexity of the service due to a variety of chain elements (IAD, DSLAM, Voice Gateway, ATM switches, BRAS, customer equipments (telephones, faxes, ISDN PBX…) and the innovative nature of most of them.
Key point of the operation success has been the continuous support provided by Aethra to overcome frequent obstacles faced during field test and mass deployment.
As an illuminating example the transition to ULL (Unbundling Local Loop) to Wholesale service can be mentioned.
In fact in the last case the service was provided using the infrastructure of the incumbent carrier and an incompatibility of carrier ATM switch setting with AAL2 has been faced which prevented the whole service to work.
A non standard patch on AAL2 layer was promptly released by Aethra as a workaround.
