ViaLiteHD HRC-1

The ViaLiteHD HRC-1 Site controller and SNMP chassis card Last Time Buy Period ended 30th September 2020. The HRC-1 is directly replaced by the ViaLiteHD HRC-3 site controller equivalent.

ViaLiteHD Blind Mate Option “D”

The ViaLiteHD Blind Mate (Option “D”) system which enables ViaLiteHD chassis cards to be hot-swapped without disconnecting coax or optical connections has been updated. The Blind Mate (Option “D”) Last Time Buy Period ended 30th September 2020. This change was due to some components becoming obsolescent in that year.

Option “E” equivalent part number:                 HRT-L1-9E-33-S1310


Classic Product Range

The ViaLite Classic RF over fiber product line was in production for over 18 years and gave exceptional service to many customers with little fault. The Last Time Buy Period for the range ended 31st December 2018. A list of the main discontinued products follows.

ViaLiteHD was launched in 2010 (eight years prior to Classic EOL), which improved on the Classic products’ performance – providing additional capacity and functionality – whilst retaining similar reliability. Equivalent ViaLiteHD product options are also detailed below.
