Madley, UK. 21 February 2017: ETL Systems, a global designer and manufacturer of RF signal distribution equipment for satellite communications, has been chosen by Colombian telecommunications, water and electricity services provider, EMCALI, to provide RF equipment for its Cali teleport expansion project.

EMCALI required a 32 input x 128 output L-band matrix system that could be used to manage L-band signal necessary to improve operation and performance of video and data traffic. This in turn would improve the quality of service to end-customers and offer a more robust operation, allowing power to be provided to several low-noise block (LNB) downconverters and compensate for loss individually on each channel. ETL’s Vortex L-band Matrix VTX-10 system, commonly used for many high resilience high performance applications, and the Piranha PRN-10 LNB powering system – which is highly energy efficient and is populated with variable voltage – was selected by EMCALI to fulfil these requirements.

ETL designed a system that easily expands into a 32x192 L-band matrix system to adhere to EMCALI’s future requirements whilst minimising downtime, allowing the company to provide enhanced communications without affecting the traffic running through the system at the time.

“We are delighted to be chosen by EMCALI for this exciting project, as this demonstrates the flexibility of our LNB and RF equipment,” said Rafael Zamora, International Sales Manager, Latin America at ETL Systems. “This project increases ETL Systems position in the Colombian and Latin America market, demonstrating the cutting-edge technology that ETL Systems offer.”
