Indonesian operator taps ViaLite for RF over fibre system

One of the largest telecommunications providers in Indonesia now benefits from the ViaLiteHD long-distance DWDM link system. ViaLite says the system was designed to meet the customer’s specific that matched the predicted results generated by ViaLite’s software design tool.

Some of the key features of this deployment include switchable fibre routes to allow for optical fibre redundancy and SNMP monitoring of both sides of the link from a single control room, enabling remote changes to be made without the need to travel between sites.

Having teleports tens or hundreds of kilometres apart, in regions where rain fade and diversity operations were key considerations, allowing the operator to maintain satellite connectivity from either of its sites. With High Throughput Satellite (HTS) connectivity becoming a prerequisite where 500 MHz and 800 MHz bandwidths are necessary, ViaLite was able to exceed HTS bandwidth requirements using their long-distance links.

“Despite the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our team was able to support the installation using remote logins and by providing guidance with local engineers on site. The fully operational diverse system was installed across a long distance with redundant switchable paths, and was tuned to meet performance specifications remotely,” said Amair Khan, ViaLite’s business development manager. “We managed to not only assist installation of the system remotely but also train staff in the operation of the system at the same time.”
