On the IBC2017 Show Floor — VSAT RF Over Fiber from ETL Systems

ETL Systems will be launching a VSAT RF over Fiber solution at IBC2017.

Model SRY-RX-L1-104, 100 series StingRay RF over Fiber module is designed to provide compact fiber links up to 10 km.

VSAT Fiber provides fiber connectivity between a VSAT antenna and a remote control room. Capable of delivering connections for links up to 10 kilometers apart without the need for additional amplification, it drastically reduces signal loss, ensuring a much higher quality feed, whatever the VSAT application.

With ruggedized Neutrik cables and an IP65 rated weatherproof housing for the outdoor unit, the system can be used in the harshest physical environments. Dual redundant power supplies also ensure resilience and continual performance.  

ETL’s VSAT Fiber system features one downlink transmission path and one uplink path, both with 10 MHz reference signals, carried on a separate fiber for best performance. It also enables Low Noise Block (LNB) and Block Upconverter (BUC) powering. An optional Ethernet over fiber port enables remote monitoring and control of the Outdoor Unit and external antenna mounted equipment.

ETL Systems will be showcasing the VSAT Fiber system at booth 1.A33 at IBC2017 from September 15 to 19.
