The Olson OLAT/OLAR Advanced L-Band System offers a feature-rich, versatile system in a very compact package. The Advanced L-Band system has been engineered to meet today’s high performance standards for L-Band transport with an extreme bandwidth range that will also allow the system to handle the next generation of satellite signals. The system is ideal for a wide variety of communications applications, including L-Band satellite antenna remoting, trunking radio, telemetry tracking, and time and frequency reference distribution. The extended frequency range to 4GHz allows this system to accommodate additional transponders coinciding with common European satellite communication applications. The enhanced bandwidth to 4GHz is also unique in that it facilitates stacked LNB applications to accommodate additional transponders with enhanced DBS programming services (e.g., HDTV, local channels, etc.) over single-mode fiber for DBS television distribution in campus, fiber-to-the-premise (FTTx), and multiple dwelling unit (MDU) environments. All units are offered with 75 Ohm impedance using “F” connectors or 50 Ohms with SMA connectors. Optical connector options include FC/APC and SC/APC. Operating at 1310nm, 1550nm, CWDM, or DWDM wavelengths, the Advanced L-Band System will meet any satellite transport requirements.
