[Via Satellite 09-10-2015] Onlime has upgraded its 15-meter C-band antenna connected to Measat’s Africasat 1a with a high power C-band modular High Power Amplifier (HPA) from General Dynamics Satcom Technologies. The new HPA allows for a switchless redundancy, configurable Radio Frequency (RF) output power, and extremely low Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) using interchangeable RF plug-in modules. According to Onlime, high linearity makes it ideal for IP trunking and fiber restoration services using the full range of higher spectral efficiency supported by Extended Second Generation Digital Video Broadcasting-Satellite (DVB-S2X).
“Our enterprise clients rely on us to deliver their business critical connectivity and our new investment adds extensive uplink capacity to our growing data services business across Africa. C-band has always been used where reliability is paramount and we are pleased to deploy cutting edge technology and introduce new higher levels of reliability and quality of service for our customers,” said Paul Ziegler, CEO of Onlime.
