Quintech Secures Order for L-Band Matrix Switch and Distribution Equipment
Quintech Electronics and Communications announced that a U.S. government media agency has procured Quintech’s Xtreme 256 matrix switch and distribution equipment for expansion of its satellite network capacity.
According to Quintech, the Xtreme 256 is an L-band matrix that provides a dedicated redundancy path that does not require re-routing of any existing connections. Redundant power supplies, controllers and fans are standard. All active cards are hot swappable and accessible through the front panel, which reduces maintenance time and disturbance of cables as compared with rear panel accessible cards. The Xtreme 256 matrix uses less than 600 Watts, whereas comparably configured matrices use more than 1500 Watts, thereby reducing the total cost of ownership, according to the company.
