HSSI & LVDS Converters

Close

Metrodata’s HSSI & LVDS product range enables a wide variety of HSSI and LVDS equipment to be inter-connected together either directly or via high speed leased lines. The BC1x00 and BC2x00 Baseband Converters enable EIA530, HSSI and LVDS equipment to be interconnected (e.g. routers, cryptos and satellite modems). The LV2000 enables Ethernet equipment to be connected via LVDS equipment (e.g. cryptos, satellite modems and radio relay systems. The HE1000 HSSI extender offers the ability to extend HSSI up to 150 metres over coaxial cable. The LHM1000 offers the ability to pass Ethernet traffic over a HSSI interface.

Metrodata's Baseband Converters mean that a mixture of new and legacy equipment can be used together. The BC1x00 product family is typically used to interface Cisco HSSI Routers to LVDS Cryptos, or LVDS Cryptos to HSSI Satcom Modems or HSSI Radio Relay Systems. The BC2x00 product family is typically used to connect HSSI routers with EIA530 satellite modems and vice versa. Both BC1x00 and BC2x00 product families offer DCE to DTE conversion as well as DTE to DCE conversion, enabling many different equipment connectivity solutions. Metrodata's Baseband Converters present a major step forwards in solving interoperability and interfacing issues within Defence networking.

Metrodata's LVDS Converters mean that Ethernet equipment can be extended over the latest generation of LVDS encrypters, radio systems and satellite modems. The LV2000 is typically used in pairs to interface Cisco Routers to LVDS Cryptos, LVDS Satcom Modems or LVDS Radio Relay Systems. Metrodata's Baseband Converters present a major step forwards in solving interoperability and interfacing issues within Defence networking.
