ETL Systems Marks CABSAT with Opening of Middle East Headquarters in Dubai

R&D experts also reveal new designs to address industry's fibre requirements

Leading British-based designer and manufacturer of RF distribution equipment, ETL Systems, revealed its plans today to expand its presence in the Middle East, by opening a new office in Dubai. This will allow ETL to provide faster technical and sales consultancy support, as many customers in the region already have ETL products in their satellite teleports.

Mather Al-Ali has been appointed to manage the Technical & Sales Support office, which will cover the Middle East and North Africa. He brings with him over 18 years of sales management and satcomms RF experience within the broadcast and surveillance markets.

The announcement comes at the same time as ETL plans to launch an exciting new range of products which deliver RF over Fibre and this will be demoed at CABSAT 2014 for the first time. A growing number of satellite teleports require reliable short distance fibre links, and ETL is developing the new fibre range to offer the highest level of redundancy whilst maintaining the best quality of signals.

Also at CABSAT 2014, ETL's 128x128 high density Vulcan matrix, an extremely compact matrix with impressive RF performance, will be on display. This RF matrix is designed for larger satellite teleports and is ideal for distribution of a high volume of L-band signals in broadcast or government locations. It is housed in a 16U 19" rack enclosure and has extensive on-board monitoring and reporting of RF card amplifier status, CPU and PSU status and HMI communications - all providing peace of mind for 24/7 operation.

ETL has a quarter of a century of experience in designing award-winning RF equipment and is recognised internationally for its innovation and professional service. It benefits from dedicated in-house RF and test engineers, specialising in originating resilient RF design concepts and enhancing existing products.

Demonstrations at CABSAT 2014
New: ETL Systems' Fibre Solution - Building on existing RF expertise, the new range will have superior RF specs and provide a unique design for high isolation applications. Full details of the new range are to be released at CABSAT.

ETL Systems' 128 x 128 Vulcan matrix
ETL's 128x128 Vulcan Matrix (Model VCN-10) is a high density L-band matrix used in busy satellite teleports where a high density of downlink feeds need to be reliably switched.

The Vulcan's compact configuration offers a cost effective solution for larger RF routing systems. It is housed in a 16U 19" rack enclosure and has extensive on-board monitoring and reporting of RF card amplifier status, CPU and PSU status and HMI communications.

ETL Systems' Components Mounting System
The new components mounting system offers an easy-to-use, cost-effective, and compact system for ETL's "Scorpion" range of passive L-band splitter / combiner components. This 1U 19" chassis is designed to accommodate ETL's 2, 4, and 8-way passive splitter/combiner modules. It is designed to utilise standard 19" mounting systems to allow compact, neat mounting of RF components.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications.
