Quintech Electronics & Communications, Inc., designer and manufacturer of RF matrix switches, announced that its XTREME 80 port matrix switch has been selected by a US Government Intelligence Agency to expand network capabilities. This matrix provides high port density with superior features and RF performance.
Quintech’s XTREME 80 matrix switch exhibits an asymmetric design (patent pending) to offer a 16x64 port configuration in a 2 RU chassis. The XTREME 80 is the only L-band matrix configured as either a 16x64 or 32x32 in the same 2 RU chassis. Included in the high-density matrix are hot swappable and redundant power supplies and control cards.
Standard independent input and output variable gains allow the user to balance input signals and provide optimum signal performance to the receivers. The XTREME 80 can save up to 90 percent of rack space and inter-module cabling as compared to existing 16x16 technology. The XTREME 80 is available as either fan-out (splitting) or fan-in (combining) for downlink and uplink applications.
Keith Blystone, Quintech Electronics’ Government Account Manager said the XTREME 80 was chosen by the Government Intelligence Agency due to its compact size and superior RF performance. At a fraction of the cost, the XTREME 80 easily expands to 128, 256 or 512 output ports in a more compact size than can be realized using multiple 128x128 matrices.
