IMT HIGHLIGHTS RF CENTRAL GL DIGITAL FIXED LINK SYSTEM AT THE 2012 NAB SHOW
Flexible, Long-Haul Hybrid IP Solution Ideal for ENG/OB Truck Applications
LAS VEGAS, APRIL 16, 2012 – Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), a Business Unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division, and a leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the Broadcast, Sports & Entertainment and MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government) markets, highlights its RF Central GL Digital Fixed Link System at the 2012 NAB Show (Booth C6432 and OE1569).
An extremely flexible, modular digital fixed-link system, the GL Fixed Link offers a remote RF head (to 23-GHz) and internal RF modules (to 14-GHz) for fixed-link (STL, TSL, ICR) applications. Using a wide and growing variety of modules, the mainframe can be configured to meet any application now and in the future.
“The GL Digital Fixed Link System is a flexible, long or short haul hybrid IP solution that is ideal for any point-to-point microwave application,” says Integrated Microwave Technologies Divisional Chief Executive Stephen Shpock. “It is an ideal backhaul solution for connecting central receiver sites as part of the transition to HD newsgathering or adding IP and ASI connectivity to a microwave backbone system.”
The heart of the GL Fixed Link, the UNM/3 third generation full duplex modem card, is configurable for single-carrier QAM or COFDM modulation, at data rates of up to 155 Mbps. It features two sets of independent ASI inputs and outputs as well as a gigabit Ethernet port. If a specific application demands more inputs and outputs, multiplexer cards are available. Using the UNM/3, a full duplex bidirectional microwave system can be built in a single 1RU mainframe. Each mainframe offers full remote control and monitoring of all parameters using the provided SNMP client or through a standard web browser.
GL Fixed Link systems are available in mainframe only or split configurations with an outdoor transmitter and receiver head. Because it uses low cost coax cable instead of waveguide, this feature reduces the overall system cost and maximizes the link budget.
