SATCOM Frequency Converter Orders Captured by Advantech Wireless Technologies

Advantech Wireless Technologies recently received two orders for SATCOM RF Frequency Converters that total more than $1 million — these converters are being deployed to a major US carrier to support an increase in demand – and to NATO for a Naval Satcom Modernization program.

Though Advantech Wireless Technologies has been producing Frequency Converters for decades, these new designs possess M&C features and use the latest in conversion technology and that meets or exceeds the requirements of network operators, government and military platforms for spectral purity, phase noise and frequency stability.

Lightweight, rugged and compact, RF Converters from Advantech Wireless Technologies are the ideal solution for fixed and mobile ground station applications. A welded frame replaces the typical ‘bent metal’ chassis to provide greater strength and resilience against shake and vibration when required.

Cristi Damian, VP Business Development, said whether the application is GEO, MEO or LEO, high-quality RF Converters are a key element in a system designed for wideband services, such as 5G. With more than 20 years of experience in the supply of converters for SATCOM, Advantech Wireless Technologies is one of the few state-of-the-art converter manufacturers that can tout the experience and capability that’s needed to support such a broad portfolio. These new orders will help to fulfill the urgent demand resulting from an exponential increase in traffic due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will support NATO’s Naval Modernization Program with products designed to provide military-grade performance when operated in less than ideal conditions.

Despite the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and related economic conditions, Advantech Wireless Technologies Inc. continues to be fully operational around the globe. Advantech supplies products to leading Canadian and American global communications companies, as well as governments and the militaries of many NATO countries. Advantech’s sales, support, and engineering teams remain available to support customers as needed.
