RF over fiber manufacturer ViaLite Communications will be launching a selection of new products when the company returns to the SATELLITE Show, in Washington D.C., this March.
ViaLite’s new products offer improvements in dynamic range capabilities and for those working with low power RF signals or high losses in the fiber connection.
The company’s new L-Band HTS Hyper Wide Dynamic Range (HWDR) Series 2 link offers even greater dynamic range than the ground-breaking Series 1 and now covers 400-2500 MHz with up to 115 dB/Hz2/3 spurious-free dynamic range.
Product Manager John Golding said it is ideal for improving intermodulation performance and reducing the minimum signal that can be detected in high optical loss environments. This is extremely important in HTS and Signals Intelligence applications.”
The new High Sensitivity Receiver (HSR), in turn, has been designed for high loss environments where there are lots of splices/interconnects or low quality infrastructure. It mitigates the need for EDFAs, even working with CWDM and long distance systems. The HSR also covers a lower optical input range, accepting > 20 dB less than standard ViaLite receivers. The HSR is available in rack chassis card format.
Golding noted that the HSR offers a get out of jail free card in situations where the infrastructure is particularly challenging. It can be used in long distance deployments to reduce or even do away with the need for an EDFA, saving OPEX & CAPEX cost and improve availability.
Also for the first time, ViaLite will be showcasing the ODE-MINI, the company’s smallest outdoor enclosure to-date, to the North America market. The enclosure is perfect for compact locations, houses 1-2 links and includes optional SNMP, Ethernet and LNA/B power.
Other new products being displayed on booth #1537 include an 8-way, 10 MHz Splitter and selection of long distance DWDM products.
Marketing Manager, Natasha Miller, added that the firm is delighted to be launching so many new products at this show and anticipate a great deal of interest. The firm is also pleased to bring back our hands-on, ‘have a go’ System Designer tool and Horizons SNMP experience where visitors can try the two products themselves while at the show, designing systems or monitoring and controlling live products.
