Designer and manufacturer of custom build RF equipment for satellite communications, ETL Systems, will showcase its latest RF technology at CommunicAsia2017, taking place 23rd to 25th May at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore. ETL’s presence at the show highlights ETL’s commitment to the Asia-Pacific region and follows recent, major orders placed by operators in the region.
Among these operators is Malaysia-based regional communications satellite operator MEASAT Satellite Systems (MEASAT), which ordered Scorpion passive splitters/combiners as well as Victor Switch Matrix/Routers for carrier monitoring from ETL Systems. MEASAT uses both products to provide reliable value added services and to enhance operational efficiency in monitoring services across multiple antenna platforms.
The event will also mark the debut of its newest RF switch matrix – the configurable 64x64 Hurricane Matrix – to the Asian market. The customisable 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 fibre 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 will also be able to see ETL’s proven RF over fibre solutions, with over 1,500 fibre links installed at satcoms sites around the world. ETL’s StingRay RF Over Fibre enables high quality conversion of RF signals over fibre for short and long distance transmissions. The range now includes modules to convert a range of frequencies including L-band, broadband, IF, 10MHz and GPS.
ETL’s 128x128 Vulcan Matrix, the 16x16 Victor Matrix, the Alto Amplifier and the highly resilient Dextra Splitter will also be on display. CommunicAsia visitors can find ETL at stand 1V3-03.
