ETL’s presence at the show follows major contract wins in the region, including RF equipment for a major broadcaster’s IPTV project
Madley, UK. 14 March 2017: ETL Systems, a global designer and manufacturer of custom build RF equipment for satellite communications, will be showcasing its latest RF technologies to the Middle East market at CABSAT 2017, taking place March 21-23 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Visitors to the ETL stand will be able to see ETL’s proven RF over Fibre solutions, with over 1,500 fibre links installed at satcoms sites around the world. StingRay RF Over Fibre enables high quality conversion of RF signals over fibre for short and long distance transmissions. The range now includes modules to convert a range of frequencies including L-band, broadband, IF, 10MHz and GPS.
ETL’s 128 x 128 Vulcan Matrix, the 16 x 16 Victor Matrix, the Alto Amplifier and the Dextra Splitter will also be on display.
ETL’s presence at the show follows major contract wins in the region, including RF equipment for a major broadcaster’s IPTV project.
CEO Ian Hilditch and Sales Manager for the Middle East region, Mohamad Barada, will be among ETL representatives at the event to demonstrate the full range of ETL’s products and explain the benefits they can bring to teleports.
“We always look forward to CABSAT as we have numerous partners in the Middle East and hope to expand our footprint in the region even more,” said Ian Hilditch, CEO at ETL Systems. “Our products are produced to the highest specification and we look forward to showing delegates what can be achieved through the use of ETL products. We also look forward to meeting with both existing and future customers to discuss their individual RF needs and help find a solution that is designed to fit their exact specifications.”
CABSAT visitors can find ETL at Stand C2-31.

Demonstrations at CABSAT 2017
StingRay RF Over Fibre Range
Building on ETL’s existing RF expertise, the new range provides a unique design for high isolation applications. The range incorporates single mode fibre links to transmit and receive RF signals with remote control and monitoring of temperature, fan status and power supply status via a web browser interface and SNMP. All chassis in the range are hot-swap with a range of fibre module options such as single or dual modules, 10MHz reference modules, and 13/18V LNB powering. New models include redundancy systems for reliability as well as standalone component modules.
16 x 16 Victor Matrix
Easy future expansion - All models now available with software enabled expansion, allowing customers to start with a matrix as small as 4 x 4, allowing them to expand in the future up to 16 x 16 in single steps, via a software key. No need to send the matrix back to ETL for expansion.
Dextra L-band splitters and combiners
ETL’s Dextra Splitter offers high resilience RF signal distribution in a compact 1U high chassis. The range offers consistently excellent RF performance, including high linearity and low noise figure, and outperforms some of the more expensive models available. Full remote control and monitoring via SNMP & web browser interface, with settable alarm thresholds. Flexible and configurable LNB power at the input ports of the splitters is also featured. New options include DC and 10MHz pass.
128x128 Vulcan Matrix/Router
The Vulcan offers excellent RF Performance and benefits from compact design, minimising valuable rack space, and hot in-service expansion. The compact configuration offers a cost-effective solution for larger RF routing systems.
ETL’s Alto series range of L-band Amplifiers provides signal management flexibility within an RF chain. Used to offset signal loss from long runs of cables and passive splitters and combiners by providing gain, the Alto series of amplifiers provide excellent RF performance in a modular design, with a variety of chassis and modules which can be configured to suit a range of applications. The Amplifiers can be fixed gain, variable gain, with dual redundant amplifiers also available.
