RF modules allow RF Over Fibre (RFoF) in a single system
Two technologies have been combined in a series of modules from Huber+Suhner to allow the use of Radio Frequency over Fibre (RFoF) optics in a single system. The RFoF modules are said to offer best in class conversion technology and feature frequency ranges that will satisfy a range of applications.
Combining RF and fibre in a single solution enables connectivity options, such as the fact that distances covered can be greater than 100km with less loss and frequency ranges that extend from 1MHz to 20GHz. A 40GHz is soon to be released. No changes are required to existing RF infrastructures and the system is secure, lightweight and, by its nature, it is future proof, claims the compay.
The standard RFoF modules are available in six and 12 ports. The 12-port module comes in a 1HE 19in chassis. All standard modules are designed for single mode connectivity and feature QMA and Q-ODC12 connectors.
