HUBER+SUHNER showcases RF-over-Fiber solutions for SATCOM applications at SATELLITE 2018


The company’s RF portfolio provides improved security, better performance, mobility and efficiency for critical satellite communication

Washington D.C, 13 March 2018 – Global connectivity supplier, HUBER+SUHNER, will unveil its “System Solutions” capabilities along with its comprehensive RF-over-Fiber (RFoF) portfolio at SATELLITE 2018 in Washington D.C this week.

Ideal for applications in the SATCOM industry, the RFoF Series provides a host of benefits to the user, including immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI), radio frequency interference (RFI) and electromagnetic pulse (EMP); enhancing the security of the link by making it difficult to intercept or tap.

In support of rapid deployment, the RFoF solutions are focused on significantly increasing link distances, whilst providing meaningful light-weighting and cable footprint reduction advantages – all of which are key attributes in mobile applications.

“It is essential that connectivity remains stable and uncompromised, especially in SATCOM applications,” said Roman Buff, Market Manager of Aerospace at HUBER+SUHNER. “Our RFoF solutions are ideal as they provide enhanced security and performance benefits compared to other offerings in the market today. The main difference between RFoF and other traditional RF systems is the use of active components, compared with the passive component focus of the past. HUBER+SUHNER is committed to continuing to play a leading role in this major technological transformation in the connectivity market.”

The standard RFoF modules are available in 1, 6 and 12 ports and cover frequencies from 100KHz to 40GHz. The RFoF Series includes simplex, duplex, low noise, integrated WDM as well as the company’s game-changing Power-over-Fiber capabilities.

Also on display at the show is the company’s phase invariant cabling assembly, the Minibend CTR and Mini141 CT. Developed for phase critical applications requiring highly precise and stable electrical length connectivity, the Minibend CTR/Mini141 CT family combine the company’s industry-renowned flexibility and solderless bend-to-the-end technology with its leading phase vs. temperature performance.

“The Minibend CTR and Mini141CT are stable, reliable interconnect solutions with the ability to satisfy a number of customer needs in critical SATCOM applications,” said Buff. “We are constantly evolving and moving with the industry and are striving to future-proof our solutions and the Minibend CTR product family is no exception. We look forward to discussing how our solutions can bolster our customers networks and ensure continued connectivity.”

HUBER+SUHNER will also be unveiling its “Systems Solutions” capabilities at the show, highlighting its integrated components, services and applied engineering services offering, providing an even greater value to its customers.

SATELLITE 2018 visitors can view the Minibend space flight cable assemblies and other HUBER+SUHNER solutions at booth #2325.
