ViaLite Debuts New Hyper Wide Dynamic Range Link & High Sensitivity Receiver
The launch of ViaLite’s newest RF over fiber products caught the attention of the SATELLITE Show’s attendees this year, with technology improvements bringing increased functionality for teleport operators.
ViaLite’s RF over fiber experts launched an L-Band HTS – Hyper Wide Dynamic Range (HWDR) Series 2 (S2) RF over fiber link; covering 400-2500 MHz and providing up to 115 dB/Hz2/3 spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR). The preceding S1 offered ground-breaking SFDR upon its launch, with that range now being greatly improved upon by the S2. The HWDR links are ideal for full satcom transponder applications and defense Signals Intelligence (SIGINT).
A High Sensitivity Receiver (HSR) was also launched, having been intricately designed for high loss environments (e.g. with many splices/interconnects or low quality fiber infrastructure). The HSR reduces the need for EDFAs.
Richard Jacklin, ViaLite Director of Sales, commented: “Although the SATELLITE Show was curtailed somewhat [due to the coronavirus], we drew a great deal of interest with the launch of the new products. The show was very well attended by the local Mil-Aero community and the HWDR and HSR product combination, in particular, gives them greater access to better quality SIGINT and High Throughput Satellite communications.”
Richard added that the ViaLite team looks forward to showcasing the new products at CommunicAsia later in the year, where the HSR is expected to “truly come into its own” as a solution for south east Asia teleports that are facing challenges due to typically higher fiber losses and a greater number of interconnects.
