      Colombian telecommunications, water and electricity services provider, EMCALI, has selected ETL Systems to provide Radio Frequency (RF) equipment for its Cali teleport expansion project.

      EMCALI required a 32 input by 128 output L-band matrix system that could be used to manage L-band signal necessary to improve operation and performance of video and data traffic. This in turn would improve the quality of service to end-customers and offer a more robust operation, allowing power to be provided to several Low-Noise Block (LNB) downconverters and compensate for loss individually on each channel. ETL’s Vortex L-band Matrix VTX-10 system and the Piranha PRN-10 LNB powering system were selected by EMCALI to fulfill these requirements.

      ETL designed a system that easily expands into a 32×192 L-band matrix system to adhere to EMCALI’s future requirements whilst minimizing downtime, allowing the company to provide enhanced communications without affecting the traffic running through the system at the time.
