VB273 Intelligent Satellite Switch from Bridge Technologies is now available in both L-band and IF versions. The VB273 monitors two signals from dual production chains and provides intelligent backup switching based on Bridgetech’s ETR290 analysis functionality and an automatic decision engine that compares error condition results against user-defined rules.
The VB273 system’s intelligence is based on the technology developed in the company’s digital media monitoring systems. Its analysis and standalone decision capabilities make it a comprehensive and versatile redundancy switching solution now available for satellite applications.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer the VB273 in two versions now, making it accessible to the entire satellite market,” said Bridge Technologies’ chairman Simen Frostad. “The quality of the ETR analysis engine and the ability to construct sophisticated rules to inform the system’s autonomous switching decisions make the VB273 a big advance for any provider relying on signals from satellite.”
