Launching at the show, on stand 1.A23 (hall 1), will be ViaLite’s smallest outdoor enclosure yet; the ODE-MINI. The IP65-rated enclosure houses two ViaLiteHD Blue OEM modules (including ViaLite’s C-Band and Ethernet links) and optional SNMP for monitoring and control.
ViaLite also recently launched its System Designer tool; a first to the market. It allows customers to design RF over fiber systems online; dragging and dropping components, and then reviewing the link budget and performance figures. The tool is ideal for complex system designs requiring DWDM products (a number of which will also be on display by ViaLite).
IBC visitors are invited to the stand (1.A23) to "have a go" using the tool. Further new RF over fiber developments at this show will include ViaLite’s Local Integrated GPS Splitter and C-Band RF over fiber link products (purple OEM module and rack chassis card). The C-Band products boast a full operational range of 500 MHz-7.5 GHz – far exceeding that of the C-Band range alone (3.4-7.1 GHz) – opening them up for a range of applications.
John Golding, ViaLite Product Manager, said that this is ViaLite’s smallest, most economical and versatile enclosure. The company wanted to expand the existing enclosure range to include a simple, basic option. It can also be upgraded with optional extras to suit differing needs. ViaLite saw market opportunities where much smaller enclosures could be easily applied and it allows for additional links to be easily added to an existing system.”
