ViaLite Supplies RF over Fiber Solutions for New Australian Teleport

ViaLite is providing their innovative RF over fiber links to assist Capricorn Space’s new Australian teleport for targeting the growing low/medium Earth orbit satellite market. A teleport is a center providing interconnections between satellites and ground-based communications. ViaLite’s lossless, high-bandwidth links will be used to connect the teleport’s main equipment room with the outdoor shelters located next to the S/X-band antenna dishes.

Working with their UK-based antenna systems supplier, the ViaLite solution uses leading-edge technology to carry three bands (L-band, S-band, and IF-band) across the same ViaLite Wideband RF over fiber link. 

The antenna systems supplier also integrated the ViaLite Blue2 dual modules for the antenna end of the links. The Blue2 provides a highly efficient way of integrating two modules in a single compact enclosure and is available in three basic options: dual transmit, dual receive and transceiver. This saves space and cost, and also has very low power consumption. 

The main equipment room uses ViaLite 3U rack cards and chassis, again utilizing the dual-module approach, making the system highly integrated and expandable as the teleport grows its operations. The Capricorn Space AGN-W site in Western Australia went live in October and is now in the process of on-boarding customers needing access to the recently commissioned S/X Band antennas and also provisioning leased services for customers to install their own antennas on the site.
