RF-over-fibre modules span 1 MHz to 20 GHz and distances >100 km

January 17, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
Electrical and optical connectivity specialist Huber+Suhner has combined two of its core technologies in a series of modules that allow the use of Radio Frequency over Fibre Optics in a single system. These RFoF modules claim best in class conversion technology.

According to the manufaccturer there are many benefits to be gained by combining RF and fibre in a single solution. Apart from flexible connectivity options, these include the fact that distances covered can be greater than 100 km with less loss and frequency ranges that extend from 1 MHz to 20 GHz with a 40 GHz version 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.

 

The standard RFoF modules are available in 6 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.
