Globecomm Chooses ETL's Vulcan And Victor Matrices

ETL Systems, a global designer and manufacturer of RF distribution equipment for satellite communications, has been chosen by Globecomm to provide RF signal distribution systems including ETL’s Vulcan and Victor matrices.

Globecomm is a leading global provider of managed network communication solutions. Employing its expertise in emerging communication technologies, Globecomm offers a comprehensive suite of system integration, system products and network services, enabling a complete end-to-end solution for its customers worldwide.

“This new project with Globecomm is another example of our growing international trade,” said Susan Saadat, Vice President for ETL’s North American Sales and Operations. “More than 40 percent of our turnover is coming from US sales, and we are happy to see those numbers grow. We strive to continue to produce the most resilient RF distribution products and maintain ourselves as a key player in the satellite market.”

The ETL Vulcan matrix is extremely compact, offering 128x128 routing capacity in only 16U rack space. It can be part populated in blocks of 8 inputs or 8 outputs. The Vulcan is a fully distributive matrix used widely in Satellite RX applications and incorporates ETL’s v-series 16x16 matrix cards ensuring excellent RF performance.

Vulcan achieves its compact form factor by using a ‘three stage’ architecture. There are; input, output, and mid matrix RF modules – all of these are hot-swap. This provides extra resilience and the ability to expend the matrix (hot) in service, by adding input and output cards as the entire mid matrix cards are supplied in part populated matrices.
