RF Optic’s 18GHz RF over Fiber compact modules convert RF signals to optical signals and back.

The Tx unit using an optical transmitter converts RF to Optical signal, and the Rx unit converts Optical to RF signal. The two units are connected by the customer’s fiber.

RF Optic’s RF over Fiber modules are suitable for telecommunications and radar applications.

Satellite, point-to-point remote antennas, can be connected from several meters to many kilometers away from the control room. Base stations can be connected through fiber to remote sector antennas. Broadcasters can easily distribute their full RF streams over fiber to remote locations. This eliminates the need for complex equipment to be installed in far and hard to reach locations. With our wide-band units, cable operators can locate their broadcasting equipment centrally. The RF is then connected through fiber to the remote location. This reduces the CAPEX and OPEX of their networks significantly.
