C-Band 3.4-7.1 GHz

ViaLite has launched a new C-Band RF over fiber link, covering 3.4 – 7.1 GHz. This includes the ITU-R radio regulations frequency for fixed satellite – earth to space (7.075 GHz). The link is suitable for Satcom, Broadcast, Weather Radar, Wireless CCTV (5 GHz products), Telemetry and Defense applications. It is available as a rack chassis card or as a new purple OEM module.

Using C-Band negates the need for IF down conversion. Through reducing the number of components needed, the C-Band link gives reduced system costs and improved reliability. The OEM module has also been designed to use minimal power, resulting in lower running costs and total cost of ownership.

  • C-Band 3.4 – 7.1 GHz
  • Full frequency range covered by link is 500 MHz – 7.5 GHz
  • No IF down conversion needed
  • Up to 50 km range
  • Rack chassis card or OEM module
  • SNMP monitoring & control available with the rack chassis card
  • 5-year warranty as standard

The new C-Band products will be fully launched and on display at CABSAT 2019.

  • Ground-station control rooms
  • Broadcasters in the field
  • Broadcast headends
  • Outdoor broadcast trucks
  • Weather radar
  • Military
  • Telemetry and tracking.

The C-Band Link is available in two formats, each housing either the Tx or Rx module.

– Single rack chassis card

A fully populated 19” 3U ViaLiteHD rack chassis supports up to 26 links and accepts 13 RF cards, plus an SNMP card and dual power supply modules.  A 1U chassis accepts three RF cards or two RF cards with an SNMP card.


– Purple OEM Module

A new purple OEM module has been designed and manufactured for C-Band Links to be built into equipment or for stand-alone use. This module is similar in outward design to ViaLite‘s Blue2 module.

See our hardware formats guide for more information.
