ViaLite has released new technology that enables users to see what is happening at the antenna end of smaller Satcom and GPS receiver applications, the company announced Aug. 3.

The company’s Embedded Site Controller is now available for ViaLite ODE-A4 outdoor enclosures, as well as the ODE-MINI; ViaLite’s smallest outdoor enclosures. The hardware and software combination allows Monitoring & Control (M&C) of the RF over fiber links within the enclosures.

ViaLite says the provides a large amount of carrier-grade features in a very small space. It highlights features such as the ability to integrate the enclosures into Network Management Systems (NMS) and Gain Control allowing for optimization of RF signals in the field. The Controller also allows the user to set minor, major and trigger-point alarms. The alarms can be masked in Maintenance Mode.

“The Embedded Site Controller brings the tried and tested Horizons HRC-3 SNMP features and Web GUI control interface to the outdoor enclosure range. This gives customers the flexibility to tune and monitor their systems for best performance, both at the control room and deployed equipment ends,” said Mike Bend, software design engineer at ViaLite.
