ViaLite has launched its L-Band HTS–HWDR RF over fiber link to address the need for more dynamic range within the ground segment generated by High Throughput Satellites (HTS), which are capable of transmitting data more than a hundred times faster than conventional Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) satellites.

With a Hyper-Wide Dynamic Range (HWDR) of 114 dB/Hz (2/3), ViaLite designed the link to satisfy the demanding applications associated with HTS and defense. The link is based on the company‘s Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology and is suitable for 500, 800 and full 1500 MHz bandwidths. It covers transmission distances of 0km to 50 km and can also be used with a regular L-Band HTS receiver.

“We have had requests from governmental organizations and industry-leading satellite operators for more dynamic range, so they can detect a wider range of signals and the operators can improve their services,” said Gary Wade, ViaLite product manager. “The new link meets this extended dynamic range.”
