Quintech's Next-Gen RF Matrix Switch Sets New Industry Standard With 6X Reduction in Energy, Space, and Cabling

INDIANA, Pa., Feb. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SATELLITE 2015 -- Quintech Electronics and Communications (http://www.quintechelectronics.com), a leading manufacturer of RF signal management and transmission equipment, will unveil to the satellite industry at SATELLITE 2015 booth 6053 in Washington, D.C., its XTREME 256 Matrix, a next generation LBand Matrix switch that radically reduces satellite earth station energy, space, and cabling requirements.

Quintech's nextgen XTREME 256 is a 128x128 scalable LBand Matrix switch that delivers a more than sixfold (6.5X) reduction in electrical power consumption, while saving over 3.5 miles (5.6km) of RF cable runs per comparable system.

"The XTREME 256 greatly increases satellite and teleport facilities' operational capabilities while vastly reducing power requirements, cabling and rack unit footprint," says Dan Prushnok, CEO of Quintech Electronics & Communications, Inc. "The business case for replacing the industry's installed base of older, large configuration legacy RF matrix switching systems with the XTREME 256 offers a high return on investment (ROI)."

The XTREME 256's expanded RF capacity and flexibility allows any input to be routed to any or all outputs. The XTREME 256's unique design reduces the number and length of cables and connections up to 97% compared with legacy systems, which can require miles of coaxial cable and 1,000s of watts of power to operate. Advanced RF design and power management methods allow the XTREME 256 to achieve industry leading RF performance while cutting power consumption by up to 80% for greener operation.

Compared with legacy systems, which are very labor intensive to install and maintain, the compact matrix reduces labor and maintenance requirements while enhancing productivity and uptime through features such as hot swappable component cards and redundant power supplies that can be rapidly and easily replaced without disconnecting cables.

For industry operators requiring smaller RF Matrix Switching Systems, the ARCHIMEDES RF Matrix Switch supports configurations from 16x32 up to 64x64 still in a single 4RU chassis.
