DEV Introduces a Fan-In Switch Matrix for Satellite Uplink Applications

first_imgDEV Systemtechnik, a subsidiary of the AXING Group, has introduced a new combining matrix switch for satellite uplink equipment. Unlike distributing fan-out matrix devices, combining matrix switches allow several or all input signals to be routed into one output channel. The DEV 1975 is an L-Band fan-in RF matrix that operates from 850 to 2450 MHz. It can automatically switch signals according to signal levels. This allows a flexible arrangement of redundant capacity switching to guarantee constant availability in the event of signal failure. The matrix can be controlled and individually configured via SNMP or the DEV Web Interface and is available from 4×4 to 16×16 arrays.The return channel of satellite data networks is emerging in importance. While most transmission has been almost exclusively in one direction, DEV has seen rising demand for bidirectional data traffic. This means that uplink stations, both stationary and mobile, are becoming more important. To serve this need, the company expanded its product portfolio with a combining, fan-in matrix.The DEV 1975 will be featured for the first time at the IBC 2018 event in Amsterdam from September 14 to 18.Click here to learn more about this product.last_img read more

Governor, Andrew Lee, had a unique take on same sex marriage benefits… Lee: “We have to recognize that currently we’re giving benefits to people based on marital status and that’s kind of the backing behind the fight.

Hawthorne pleased with Pan Am performances

first_imgLIMA, Peru: Head coach Donald Hawthorne says he is overjoyed at Jamaica’s record medal haul here at the Pan American Games. The black, green, and gold finished with 19 medals overall, 17 in track and field. That puts the nation 13th on the overall medal table and third on the track and field-specific standings. Hawthorne said his athletes did the nation proud. “I think we have done quite well, apart from a few little glitches and the weather conditions, which were not quite so favourable. We think we are still holding our own as Jamaicans, and we’re still holding Brand Jamaica high,” Hawthorne told The Sunday Gleaner. Most of the athletes that participated at the Videna Sports Village complained about the coldness of Lima’s winter this week, but Hawthorne commended them for how much they gave in what he describes as trying temperatures. “It was somewhat difficult,” he said, “But guess what happened? When the going gets tough, the tough get going, and that’s how Jamaicans are. We really stuck to the task, and amid, all the conditions that we faced, we still were able to do great things.” MORALE HIGH Hawthorne said that despite the rumours of discontent among members of the camp, team morale was high throughout the Games. “The mood is one of happiness,” he said. “Although we thought we could’ve done just a little bit better, we have to give thanks for what we have got so far.” Jamaica added one more medal to its tally yesterday when the unfamiliar quartet of Stephenie-Ann McPherson, Tiffany James, Natoya Goule, and Roniesha McGregor, running in that order, earned a bronze in the women’s 4x400m relay final. They finished in 3:27.61, behind winners USA, 3:26.46, and runners-up Canada, 3:27.01. McPherson, the most experienced member of the team, praised its efforts. “They are young, and when I was young, it was the same thing. You have to learn each time you make a team. We came out here just to put our best foot forward, and we did that, and we are thankful for the bronze. It’s a young team, and in the next four years, it’s these girls that are going to run when I retire, so they have to learn.” McPherson said. The men’s equivalent of national 400m record holder Rusheen McDonald, Romel Lewis, Terry Thomas, and Javon Francis, running in that order, could only muster a sixth-place finish in a time of 3:06.83. Colombia took the gold in 3:01.41, ahead of the USA, in 3:01.72, and Trinidad and Tobago, who took bronze in 3:02.25. Earlier in the day, the Jamaican duo of Clive Pullen, 16.35m, and Jordan Scott, 16.13m, finished fifth and ninth, respectively, in the men’s triple jump final. USA’s Omar Craddock took gold with a distance of 17.42m as the Cuban pair of Jordan Díaz Fortun, in a season’s best 17.38m, and Andy Díaz Hernández, 16.83m, took silver and bronze, respectively. Jamaica’s final medal count stands at 19, consisting of six gold, six silver, and seven bronze. Jamaica’s medal breakdown: Gold: Fedrick Dacres – Men’s discus throw Elaine Thompson – Women’s 100m Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce – Women’s 200m Shericka Jackson – Women’s 400m Natoya Goule – Women’s 800m Danniel Thomas-Dodd – Women’s shot put Silver: Demish Gaye – Men’s 400m Traves Smikle – Men’s discus throw Tajae Gayle – Men’s long jump Aisha Praught-Leer – Women’s 1500m Shanieka Thomas-Ricketts – Women’s triple jump Yona Knight-Wisdom – Men’s 1m springboard dive Bronze: Kemar Mowatt – Men’s 400m hurdles Megan Tapper – Women’s 100m hurdles Rushell Clayton – Women’s 400m hurdles Jamaica – Women’s 4x400m relay Kimberly Williamson – Women’s high jump Tissanna Hickling – Women’s long jump Ricardo Brown – Men’s +91kg super heavyweight boxinglast_img read more
