P-Band Link

ViaLite has a P-Band Link for the Military and Aeronautical Telemetry market. The ultrawide dynamic range of the link allows for very small and large signals to be transported between military test ranges and control rooms, over optical fiber. The links allow simple operation near and far field.

  • 10-1350 MHz
  • Ultra-wide dynamic range for large bandwidth signals for video telemetry
  • Increased ‘link margin’ for very small and large signals
  • Available in rack chassis card or Blue/Yellow/Blue2 module format
  • 5-year warranty as standard


Product Inquiry
P-Band Link

The chassis cards are available with the ViaLiteHD blind mate option, which allows all cables to be connected at the rear of the chassis when installed. It also allows any configuration changes to be completed without disturbing the connections and very fast changeover of cards; enabling five nines reliability.

Options include:

  • 50Ω electrical connectors: SMA and MCX
  • Optical connectors: SC/APC, LC/APC, FC/APC and E2000/APC
  • Test ports on Tx and Rx modules
  • Built-in BiasT for LNB powering through RF connection
  • LNB/LNA control circuit with 13/18VDC & 22kHz tone
  • Blind mate connectivity (SC/APC and SMA)
  • Serial digital channel to 20 kb/s on same optical path.
