Satellite TV fibre distribution

High gain satellite TV dish Ideal for receiving Sky(tm) and Freesat(tm) in mountainous Scottish regions, our satellite TVRO DBS system employs a rugged, commercial quality, high gain satellite TV antenna, high gain/low noise LNB and optical fibre technologies to enable a satellite TV dish to be sited hundreds of metres away from a dwelling where the TV signal can be viewed with no loss of quality. The power and fibre cables can be buried in a prepared trench or run overground protected in plastic water pipe. The system can also be deployed in multi-apartment complexes and offshore installations.

Wireless distribution and WiFi

Outdoor mesh antennaEnterprise class self-organizing, self-healing wireless meshing WiFi distribution system rated to -40oC making it ideal for deployment in the harsh environments regularly experienced in the Scottish Highlands. Ideal for hotels, resorts, multi-dwelling units, schools, warehouses and other enterprises needing to deliver broadband access from the outside in or to extend managed wireless LANs (WLANs) outdoors where Ethernet cabling is not possible.

The access points uniquely combine adaptive antenna technology and adaptive meshing to enable a new level of outdoor performance at a low cost. Built to withstand the harshest of outdoor conditions, they’re designed with the flexibility to function as standalone APs or as managed devices, using the same wireless controller as their indoor Smart Wi-Fi counterparts. If no Ethernet cabling is available, the outdoor AP meshes seamlessly with the indoor access points. Unprecedented 802.11n performance enables connections of 150Mbps or more between mesh nodes at distances of up to 300 meters or more.

Options include flexible mounting arrangements and a PoE output for a surveillance camera. Unlike some other outdoor Wi-Fi device today, it provides advanced interference mitigation to ensure the highest resilience for both client and inter-node mesh connections.

Point to point links
