ViaLiteHD Hardware Formats

ViaLite offers a number of hardware formats to suit different needs:

All ViaLite links of the same product type (L-Band HTS, DVB-T, GPS etc.) can be mixed irrespective of the format (chassis card or OEM module) or product range (ViaLiteHD or Classic).


Rack Chassis Card

Chassis cards are used in ViaLiteHD rack chassis units (3U / 1U).

  • Card size: 179mm x 25.4mm x 133mm

A 3U ViaLiteHD rack chassis is equipped with two 100 W dual redundant power supplies and either a summary alarm card or an SNMP network control module.  The chassis accepts up to 13 cards and, if dual cards are used, can support up to 26 links.

  • 13 chassis cards per 3U rack chassis
  • Single Rx or Tx cards
  • Dual cards (Rx/Rx, Rx/Tx and Tx/Tx) allows 26 links per chassis
  • Blind mate
  • 1310, 1550, CWDM & DWDM options
  • Hot swappable
  • On-card WDM multiplexing allows two signals on a single fiber
  • On-card LNA/LNB power feed options.
