The ViaLite L-Band HTS link (700-2450 MHz) covers distances of 1m to 50 km and is the most commonly used RF over fiber link in Satellite Communications. A Long Distance Link DWDM system up to 600 km is also available.
The links can be either plug-in or blind mate and are completely plug and play, enabling simple installation.
The rack chassis cards can be positioned in any slot of a ViaLite 19” rack and can be mixed with 70-140 MHz, 10 MHz and in Tx and Rx configurations.
One of the link’s key features is the ultra-wide dynamic range. This allows wider bandwidths to be transmitted. For example, 500 to 800 MHz signals typically used in High Throughput Satellites (HTS). Demand for increased capacity in satellite communication continues to drive the industry to use HTS at these higher frequencies.
As with all the links, it is possible to have a 20 kb/s serial digital channel multiplexed in with the RF signal. This allows for control of other equipment such as antenna controllers, BUCs or converters.
