RF-Design has launched the firm's new QLink RF-over-Fiber system,  which represents a high-density and turnkey outdoor/indoor optical transmission solution.

The QLink system is a combination of an IP64 rated weatherproof outdoor enclosure and a 1RU/19-inch rack-mount indoor chassis allowing transmission of maximum of four RF signals via optical fiber. The outdoor enclosure and the indoor-chassis can each be populated with as many as four optical transmitter and/or receiver modules (mixed TX/RX population possible), making it a perfect fit for satellite down- and uplink as well as for various VSAT operations.

The QLink system supports extended L-band frequency range (850 – 2450 MHz) ready for Ka-band and HTS applications.
Additionally, this turnkey RF-over-Fiber solution is complete with beneficial features that include variable gain-control, RF power
monitoring, switchable LNB-supply (via TX modules) and 10 MHz reference signal transmission. The product also supports laser,
link, power-supply and access status monitoring and comes with 1:1 redundant dual power-supplies.
