The ViaLite GPS fibre optic link allows for timing distribution and accurate synchronisation using GPS-derived timing signals. The links are a reliable method for transporting GPS signals from antennas to receivers/repeaters, and provide a simple solution for signal distribution over long distances and to inaccessible locations. Contact us for more information.
Using optical fibre, the GPS antenna may be positioned 10km or more away from the GPS receiver, whilst overcoming problems due to path loss and electro-magnetic interference etc.
It is ideal for providing a GPS derived timing signal reference to equipment positioned where no GPS signal is available (in a tunnel or underground mine for example).
The wide dynamic range of the link results in negligible degradation of the satellite signals due to noise or interfering signals.

Ultra-wide Dynamic Range
TheViaLite GPS link has been designed with very low noise and a lower minimum signal level – allowing for very low level signals to be transported from the antenna.
For situations where redundancy is required – for maximum signal uptime and integrity – the GPS is available in single or dual redundant configuration.
Alarm / Antenna Spoofing
All ViaLiteHD GPS products come with alarm and antenna spoofing as standard. This allows the GPS antenna to be sensed by the RF over fibre transmitter and – if the antenna fails – the transmitter switches off its laser, forcing a fault condition at the receiver end. This allows the user to know there is a fault in the system. In addition, the receiver supplies the resistive load needed by time servers to spoof a copper connection to the antenna. If there is a fault seen at the receiver, it will switch off this load causing a fault condition in the time server – again, allowing the user to know there is a fault in the system.
Point to Multipoint
With increased congestion on metropolitan roof space and increased costs for locating antennas on roof spaces, further to advances in distance and splitting techniques, it is now possible to have single antennas split multiple ways to different buildings or to multiple floors in a single building.
MiFID II Standard
The MiFID is the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (Directive 2004/39/EC). In force since November 2007, this directive governs the provision of investment services in financial instruments by banks and investment firms and the operation of traditional stock exchanges and alternative trading venues. The ViaLite GPS link meets this standard.
