RF over Fiber Transmission with Optribution
With Optribution DEV offers a product line providing electrical and optical functions within one system. All products are engineered, developed and manufactured in Germany.
Optribution allows complex switching, redundant configurations, and long-distance signal transport up to 200 km. The very compact, cost-effective Alpha line serves up to 32 optical fiber connections in just 1 RU.
All our RF-over-Fiber products feature modular flexibility and open paths scalable for future needs. Our consistent solution architecture offers perfect interoperability with other DEV devices, including matrix switches, redundancy or antenna control systems, and lightning protection gear. When using standardized frequencies, protocols and connectors, DEV systems can also be integrated with third-party systems.
New cost-effective RF over Fiber Product Line – DEV Alpha
We are expanding our RF-over-Fiber (RFoF) product portfolio with a new, extremely cost-efficient system. With its world-leading high packing density, the new product line Alpha ideally serves operators of cable networks and satellite ground stations.
DEV Alpha serves clients seeking very cost-effective fiber optic connections within tight rack spacing. Alpha consolidates an unprecedented 32 connections into one rack unit (RU). Owing to its splitters and switching modules, Alpha is also suitable for redundancy applications.
RF over Fiber (RFoF) Technology
RF over Fiber refers to technology that modulates light with a radio frequency signal for transmission over an optical fiber. All satellite ground stations and teleports must have an effective transmission method for RF signals linking antennas, signal management equipment and wide-ranging equipment centers. Beyond traditional copper or coax, current “state-of-the-art” installations are best served by fiber-optic links. RFoF incorporates several advantages over coax: limited losses, preserved signal quality, and muted crosstalk. High-capacity fiber connectivity secures an enduring platform in the face of today’s ever-changing technology environment.
