Product Inquiry
Mil-Aero 6 GHz Link Pair

The link pair electrical performance is optimized for excellent balance between a low noise figure (NF), high P1dB CP and an industry leading Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR). When harsh environmental conditions are a design consideration, an IP5x module can be used, or the Blue OEM modules can be installed within a variety of ViaLite outdoor enclosures, such as the 2 port ODE-MINI or the 4 port ODE-A4.

ViaLite’s Mil-Aero link pair comes in various hardware formats, such as stand-alone OEM modules (Blue and Black) and chassis rack cards. Chassis rack cards are managed and configured via a site controller which utilizes SNMP and web interface, whereas stand-alone modules are field configurable via USB serial cable.
