RF over Fiber (RFoF) solutions convert analog RF signals into optical signals which are then transmitted over optical fibers and converted back to RF signals at various bands. RFoF Solutions are designed to replace coax cables that degrade RF signals over long distances, typically longer than 150 ft.
RFOptic’s easy-to-use RFoF solutions are mainly used to connect remote antennas to central in-door locations over optical fiber in Communications, Satcom, Cellular, Defense, DAS, A/V and GPS applications. Since fiber is lighter than coax RFoF solutions are also used in weight sensitive application such as space, marine, airborne and balloon-based communication applications.
