ETL Systems’ Dextra splitters and combiners selected by MTN

Virginia, USA, March 2015. ETL Systems, a global designer and manufacturer of RF distribution equipment for satellite communications, today announced its latest Dextra series of active splitters and combiners will be used at MTN’s teleport in Holmdel, New Jersey.

 The equipment will serve MTN’s routing needs, offering redundant power supplies and amplifiers needed for the required reliability and resiliency that is demanded of MTN’s large earth station.

 MTN is a global leader in teleport and satellite operations, providing content and communications for remote locations around the world. The Holmdel teleport currently operates with 26 antennas and serves markets such as cruises, yachts, ferries, oil and gas, commercial shipping and Government segments.

 “We have a strong focus on keeping our ground earth stations as up-to-date with the most functional technology as possible,” said MTN. “Any communication that is established through MTN’s antennas is critical and any failure or break in the transmission is not an option. ETL’s redundant solution guarantees that our operations will run seamlessly, without interruption.”

 ETL’s Dextra range covers 4-way and 8-way splitters and combiners in both single and dual configurations, with 16-way splitters and combiners available as single units. The equipment features web-enabled control and monitoring, as well as simple set-up and diagnosis through an LED front panel display.

 “Our Dextra range of splitters and combiners will benefit MTN’s operations enormously, offering resilient features such as redundant amplifiers at measurable cost,” said Susan Saadat, Vice President of ETL’s North American Sales and Operations. “This project strengthens our commitment to providing the latest in RF Distribution technology.”
