The ViaLite L-Band (700-2450 MHz) and IF (70-140MHz) links cover distances of 1m to 50 km and are the most commonly used RF over fiber links in Satellite Communications. A Long Distance Link DWDM system up to 600 km is also available.
⦁ Designed for Satcom – RF and fiber connections on the rear
⦁ Ideal for 500MHz and 800MHz bandwidths used in High Throughput Satellites (HTS)
⦁ 13/18 V and 22 KHz tone LNB control
⦁ True Plug and Play
⦁ 50 and 75 ohm
⦁ Superior linearity and low noise
⦁ SNMP or web GUI interface for easy set-up, remote monitoring or control
The Satellite IF fiber links are designed to cover the traditional cross-site bands, with the same features as the L-Band HTS links.
The links can be either plug-in or blind mate enabling simple installation. Due to the simple plug in nature of the cards they can be positioned in any slot in the 19” rack and can be mixed with L-Band HTS, 10 MHz and in Tx and Rx configurations.
As with all the links, it is possible to have a 20 kb/s serial digital channel multiplexed in with the RF signal. This allows for control of other equipment such as antenna controllers, BUCs or converters.
To ensure five nines reliability, the links are available in a full 1:1 redundancy configuration in both rack mount and outdoor enclosures using the ViaLite splitters and switches.
Rackchassis are available with either 3, or 13 slots. When using the Dual Transmit or the Dual Receive this allows for up to 26 links per chassis.
