Genus Redundant Amplifiers: Improved Benefits

In a rapidly evolving world of satellite communication technology, staying ahead of the curve is not just an advantage; it's a necessity. ETL Systems demonstrates its commitment to innovation with the new and improved Genus Redundant Amplifiers. This product boasts an array of benefits, including future-proofing and secure protocols, compact design, improved RF specifications, wider frequency range options, scalability, common spares, and field serviceability. 


Genus Redundant Amplifiers: Improved Benefits


Genus Benefits over Legacy

Future-Proof and Secure Protocols - SNMPv3, HTTPS

These amplifiers are engineered with the future in mind, ensuring that your investment remains relevant as technology continues to advance. Supporting secure protocols such as SNMPv3 (Simple Network Management Protocol version 3) and HTTPS, they offer top-tier security features. SNMPv3 enhances network security through authentication and encryption, safeguarding against unauthorised access and data breaches. HTTPS secures the communication between users and the amplifier's web interface, protecting sensitive configuration and monitoring data.


Compact 1U Housing for 1+1, 2+1 & 4+2 Redundancy Configurations

Space efficiency is a prized asset in satellite communication facilities where every inch counts. The Genus Redundant Amplifiers provide an elegant solution with their compact 1U housing, suitable for 1+1, 2+1 and 4+2 redundancy configurations. This space-saving design empowers you to maximise equipment density while ensuring redundancy and reliability. In an industry where real estate is at a premium. This feature alone can significantly impact operational efficiency.


Improved RF Specifications - NF & Linearity

Signal quality is the lifeblood of satellite communications, and the Genus Redundant Amplifiers excel in this department. They offer improved RF specifications, including market-leading lower noise figures (NF) and enhanced linearity. These enhancements translate to cleaner, more reliable signals, minimising signal degradation, and optimising the efficiency of your satellite communication system. Whether you're handling critical data or demanding video feeds, these amplifiers ensure uncompromised signal integrity.


Wider Frequency Range Options

Satellite communication requirements can vary dramatically depending on the application and frequency bands in use. The Genus Redundant Amplifiers understand this need for flexibility and offer a range of options to cater to different frequency bands. Whether you operate in L-band, C-band, or Ku-band frequencies, ETL Systems has you covered. This adaptability allows you to tailor your amplifier choice to match your specific needs accurately.


Scalable Design - No Additional Chassis Required

Scaling up your satellite communication system has never been easier. The Genus Redundant Amplifiers are designed with scalability in mind, allowing you to increase from a single 1+1 or 2+1 configuration to dual 1+1 or 2+1 without the need for another chassis. This scalability ensures your system can effortlessly adapt to changes in your satellite communication network without the complexities or costs of major overhauls.


Common Spares and Hot-Swappable Switches

Minimising downtime and streamlining maintenance is essential in satellite communication operations. ETL Systems simplifies this process by offering common spares across the Genus range. This means you can stock a single set of spare parts to support multiple amplifier units, reducing maintenance costs and complexity. Additionally, the hot-swappable switches enable quick and hassle-free component replacement, ensuring minimal disruptions to your satellite communication operations.


Field-replaceable HMI and CPU

In an industry where every moment of downtime can have far-reaching consequences, ETL Systems' Genus Redundant Amplifiers go the extra mile to minimise disruptions. With a field-replaceable Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and Central Processing Unit (CPU), critical components can be swapped out swiftly and effortlessly in the field, without the need for specialised tools or extensive downtime. This feature ensures that your satellite communication system remains operational and reliable, even in the face of unexpected challenges.


These amplifiers not only enhance reliability and performance but also future-proof your satellite communication infrastructure, ensuring you stay ahead in this dynamic and competitive field.
