The ViaLite RF over Fibre Timing & Reference Link has been designed to transmit accurate timing and frequency reference signals over single-mode optical fiber.
Transmission types that can be transported over the ViaLite RF over Fibre Timing & Reference Link include:
- Radio timing signals:
- DCF, MSF signals
- JJY, BPC, HBG, TDF, WWVB, WWV, CHU, RJH, RWM, BPM
- Loran-C & eLoran
- 10 kHz – 50 MHz signals
- 1 PPS (via serial digital link)
- GPS (via GPS link)
- MiFID II standard
- 5-year warranty as standard
Radio timing signals are produced by individual nations from an atomic clock and distributed via radio frequency. When these timing signals are needed inside a secure building or underground, RF over fiber is used to bring the signals from a radio antenna into the equipment or equipment room. It is now often used as a back-up for GPS. Loran signals are typically used for cellular base station timing or older maritime timing applications, and RF over fiber is used where the signal is not available over the air. IRIG is used for timing in test environments as a back-up timing signal for GPS. All time servers need timing – whilst again the main input is GPS – backup is quite often a RF reference signal <50 MHz.
ViaLite RF over Fibre solutions are highly customisable and as a result systems are designed specifically for a customer’s applications. Contact our Australian based team to discuss your application so we can configure a solution for your requirements.
MiFID II standard
The MiFID is the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Directive 2004/39/EC). MiFID has been in force since November 2007 and MiFID II is set to take effect from 3rd January 2018. The directive governs the provision of investment services in financial instruments by banks and investment firms and the operation of traditional stock exchanges and alternative trading venues. The ViaLite GPS link allows financial institutions etc. to comply with this standard.
ViaLite manufactures a wide range of RF over Fiber electronic systems, which allow RF signals to be transmitted over fiber optic cables. ViaLite is a market leader in RF over Fibre Systems for the Satcom, Broadcast, Telemetry, Cellular, and Timing markets. ViaLite’s solutions include L-Band HTS, C-Band, Broadcast links, ViaLite’s SIGINT links, and GPS links.
