The ViaLite Timing and Reference fiber optic link is designed to be used when a central timing or modem-produced reference signal of 1 to 50MHz (typically 10MHz) is to be distributed to remote locations in satcom antenna installations. The use of single mode optical fiber overcomes problems with signal losses in coaxial cable and provides lightning protection.
As is required, ViaLite‘s Timing link transports the higher power timing signal and lower power traffic signal separately – over two fibers or over two wavelengths within a single fiber.
Optical signals can be split with very little loss due to the transmitter and receiver having the ability to amplify the signal. This allows for the signal to be distributed easily around a satellite ground station.
