ETL Systems will showcase its latest RF technology at CommunicAsia2017, taking place May 23-25 at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore. ETL’s presence at the show highlights the company’s commitment to the Asia-Pacific region and follows recent, major orders placed by operators in the region.
These include Malaysia-based regional communications satellite operator MEASAT Satellite Systems Sdn. Bhd., which ordered Scorpion passive splitters/combiners as well as Victor Switch Matrix/Routers for carrier monitoring from the company. MEASAT uses both products to provide highly reliable value added services and to enhance operational efficiency in monitoring services across multiple antenna platforms.
The event will also mark the debut of ETL’s newest RF switch matrix – the configurable 64 x 64 Hurricane Matrix – to the Asian market. The customizable Hurricane RF matrix is designed to change and adapt with the ever-changing requirements of the latest satellite teleports. Input and output modules can be configured with features to suit specific RF needs for each satellite feed, including fixed gain, variable gain, LNB powering and fiber inputs. Not only is the Hurricane flexible and future-proof, but it also features no loss of service, power consumption reductions, improved RF performance, and a simple and intuitive user interaction.
“We have numerous partners in Asia and so CommunicAsia is a very important show for us as it enables us to network with current and future customers,” said Andrew Bond, Sales Director at ETL Systems. “With the demand for greater connectivity constantly increasing and more and more players entering the market with new technologies, the show provides us with a fantastic opportunity to explore the future of satellite communications and discuss what sort of unique RF requirements teleport and satellite operators need, and how ETL can help them.”
Visitors to the ETL stand (1V3-03) will also be able to see the company’s proven RF over Fiber solutions, with over 1,500 fiber links installed at satcoms sites around the world. ETL’s StingRay RF over Fiber enables high quality conversion of RF signals over fiber for short and long distance transmissions. The range now includes modules to convert a range of frequencies including L-Band, broadband, IF, 10 MHz and GPS. ETL’s 128 x 128 Vulcan Matrix, the 16 x 16 Victor Matrix, the Alto Amplifier and the highly resilient Dextra Splitter will also be on display.
