In Satcom applications, RF-over-Fiber enables communication between satellites and control centres. The communication link is created by connecting the antenna to the control centre. RF-over-Fiber supports both fixed earth installations as well as mobile applications.
Broad frequency ranges, excellent performance and security are critical aspects that are perfectly addressed by HUBER+SUHNER’s RF-over-Fiber products. With single modules that cover the all intermediate frequency (IF) signals as well as the L, S and C bands, HUBER+SUHNER not only meets the frequency range requirements in SATCOM, but also has Low Noise modules in its portfolio that can be used in applications that are especially sensitive to noise. The Low Noise modules halve the noise figure from 15 dB to 7 dB (IF signals).
Excellent performance and the security of the SATCOM links are further supported by immunity to EMI, RFI and EMP. The use of LAN-over-Fiber is growing within the SATCOM applications landscape. Ethernet connectivity for VOIP, VPN connectivity and other data network services are easily integrated into both fixed and mobile infrastructures. Gigabit LAN modules ensure the future-proofing of all SATCOM applications.
The product series Spuma, S and SX provide lowest attenuation, high flexibility and optimal shielding. Products from the Spuma series are similar to the LMR® products from Times Microwave. The series with LSFH jacket material and the radiation crosslinked SX series with the RADOX® jacket offer extremely high flame protection.
