F-SBAND 5 GHz RF S Band over Fiber Transmitter and Reciever

The F-SBAND is used to transmit and receive uplink and downlink signals up to 5 GHz. This is useful for links in between control rooms or NOCs. The F-SBAND system offers a high performance alternative to conventional coaxial link systems, both reducing attenuation and eliminating the need for a waveguide. The unit functions as a transperent link, transporting all satellite modulation formats over a single fiber. Typically an S-Band fiber link consists of an optical transmitter that recieves the RF signal and transmits it over singlmode fiber to an optical reciever which converts the optical signal back to RF. The F-SBAND link is a cost effective and high performance solution for S Band over fiber Satellite links.
