StingRay RF over Fibre

Connect » Provide Connectivity » Connectivity & Bandwidth » Satellite connectivity »

ETL's StingRay RF over Fibre (RoF) inter facility links (IFL) convert high quality RF to optical signals over single mode fibre from, for example, a satellite antenna to reception equipment room, up to 10 km away, with options for distances up to 100's of kilometres. ETL'S Stingray RF over Fibre solution offers fibre links from 10km up to 500km in distance whilst drastically reducing signal loss.

CWDM modules (coarse wavelength division multiplexing) provide up to 50km transmission compact fibre links, with eight wavelengths on a single fibre cable. DWDM modules (dense wavelength division multiplexing) provide up to 500km transmission fibre links and beyond using optical amplification (EDFA), with up to forty wavelengths on a single fibre cable. ETL can also offer a solution for ultra-compact requirements or for smaller applications such as a single antenna. Our range is split in to 100 series and 200 series RF to optical alternatives.

  • The 100 series range offers up to 16 RF over Fibre links in a 1U chassis.

  • The 200 series range offer twin module options; where 2 separate links are provided on one module (therefore providing up to 32 feeds in a single 2U chassis) or with a -20 dB monitoring port for SIGNAL MONITORING.

ETL's standard 100 series and 200 series RF over Fibre modules provide AGC (Automatic Gain Control) with automatic link optimisation for FAST SET-UP or wide dynamic range links with FIXED GAIN FOR INPUT POWERS UP TO +6 dBm.

If you require  ENHANCED RESILIENCE  our StingRay RF over Fibre range offers 1+1 redundancy and 4+1 or 4+2 redundancy systems.
