ViaLite’s Satellite Intermediary Frequency (IF) RF over fiber links cover the 20-200 MHz bandwidth range; providing cross-site connectivity for standard 70 and 140 MHz IF signals. These links typically sit between the up-/down-converter near the antenna and operations room switch matrix or modems.
The Satellite IF fiber links are designed to cover the traditional cross-site bands, with the same features as the L-Band HTS links.
The links can be either plug-in or blind mate enabling simple installation. Due to the simple plug in nature of the cards they can be positioned in any slot in the 19” rack and can be mixed with L-Band HTS, 10 MHz and in Tx and Rx configurations.
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.
