Quintech's Extreme Solution Fans the Plans of Major Company's Test Labs with XTREME 80

The company is unnamed but is listed as a major global security and aerospace company that is using Quintech Electronics & Communications XTREME 80 fan-out and fan-in matrix switches in their telecommunications test labs. 

XTREME 80: 80 Port Fan-out Distributing RF Matrix

Quintech Electronics & Communications, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of RF matrix switches, announced that its XTREME 80 fan-out and fan-in matrix switches have been selected by a "Leading Global Security & Aerospace company and U.S. government supplier" for use in its telecommunications test labs.  The Quintech L-Band matrix delivers high port density with superior features and RF performance for applications such as satellite networks. 

Quintech’s XTREME 80 fan-out and fan-in matrix switch is among the highest density matrix on the market, in which they squeeze 80 total ports in a 2 RU chassis.  The XTREME 80 features an industry-exclusive flexible matrix architecture that supports both symmetric and asymmetric configurations of 80 combined input and output ports in a single chassis. Asymmetric configurations such as 16x64, 8x56 and more can be implemented, as well as the standard 32x32 configuration. 

The high-density matrix includes hot-swappable RF cards, redundant power supplies and control cards.  Standard independent input and output variable gains allow the user to balance RF levels and provide optimum signal performance to receivers or modems.  The XTREME 80 can save up to 67 percent  of rack space and inter-module cabling as compared to existing 32x32 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 that their customer, a leading global security and aerospace company, chose the XTREME 80 because it offers both fan-out and fan-in versions and its compact size, which uses just one-third of the rack space of comparable matrices, and with front panel control, web browser GUI, API and SNMP over TCP/IP, multiple lab users can easily operate the matrix.
