The analog RF over Fiber modules convert RF signals to optical signals and back. One unit has an optical transmitter which converts the signal from RF to Optical, and a second receiver unit converts the signal from Optical to RF. Both units are connected by the optical fiber of the customer.
RFOptic’s RFoF modules are suitable for telecommunications and radar applications. Satellite, Point-to-Point 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, which eliminates the need for complex equipment to be installed in remote and hard to reach locations. With our wide-band units, cable operators can centrally locate their broadcasting equipment, and connect the RF through fiber to the remote location, which reduces the CAPEX and OPEX of their networks significantly. Radar system houses can easily connect remote antenna elements using cost-effective fiber. Phased array antennas can also use fiber to connect to their RF systems.
