Quintech Electronics & Communications, Inc., a world leader in the design and manufacture of RF matrix switches, announced that its XTREME 256 matrix switch and distribution equipment was procured by a U.S. Government media agency for expansion of its satellite network capacity.
Quintech’s XTREME 256 matrix switch provides best-in-class reliability and uptime for critical 24x7 transmissions. The XTREME 256 is the only L-band matrix that provides a dedicated redundancy path that does not require re-routing of any existing connections. Redundant power supplies, controllers and fans are standard. All active cards are hot swappable and accessible through the front panel, which reduces maintenance time and disturbance of cables as compared with rear panel accessible cards. The XTREME 256 matrix uses less than 600 Watts, thereby reducing the total cost of ownership, whereas comparably configured matrices use more than 1500 Watts.
“The XTREME 256 (patent pending) matrix switch is the only switch that can be configured as a symmetric 128x128 or asymmetric 96x160, 64x192, 32x224 configuration,” says Frank Elling, President of Quintech Electronics. “Quintech designs our products with the highest reliability for mission critical applications. The matrix switch, paired with Quintech’s splitters and LNB power sources, meets or exceeds 99.99% availability as required by the government media agency.”
