Emcore introduces 1x2, 1x4 and 1x8 3GHz RF redundancy switching for Optiva

Emcore Corp of Albuquerque, NM, USA, which makes compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber-optic and solar power markets, has introdued the OTS-RSU 3GHz RF redundancy switch units (RSU) for the Optiva platform.

The Optiva platform includes a wide range of fibe- optic transport products for satellite and microwave communications from 1MHz to 40GHz. The OTS-RSU series supports satellite signal transport link redundancy applications for 1x2, 1x4 and 1x8 redundant switch configurations when integrated with Optiva RF fiber-optic transmitters and receivers.

Emcore says that Optiva OTS 3GHz RSU’s are suited to minimizing the amount of spare equipment required by broadcast and cable operators while still maintaining link redundancy and back-up for multiple channels. They feature 50 and 75 Ohm BNC or 50 Ohm SMA connector options, dedicated Comm-Link for rapid switching response, and automatic and manual redundancy modes. Additional features include manual position/enable select button, channel status and switch position LED, and LNB power pass-through.

“The launch of the Optiva OTS-RSU 3GHz Redundancy Switch Units expands the Optiva platform’s fiber-optic switching capabilities and supplements the existing 2.3GHz and 18GHz 1x1 OTS-RSU-1 switch models,” says Frank Weiss, VP of Advanced Systems. “This makes the OTS-RSU series a complete optical switching platform,” he adds.

All Optiva redundancy switch units provide SNMP monitoring and control. They can be housed in the same chassis and monitored by the same Network Management System (NMS) as Optiva HD video, audio, serial data, and USB extension and distribution cards to support the transport of multiple signal formats and frequency bands in a single flexible platform. The OTS-RSU series is CE & CSA certified and RoHS compliant.
