RF OVER FIBER (RFoF)

INdustry LEADING EXPERTISE in RF-Over-FIBER SOLUTIONS

RF over Fiber is being deployed in many defense and commercial applications due to a number of advantages that lightwave links
deliver over RF and µwave links. Some of the key advantages are: greater distances between the RF Source and the RF Receiver,
immunity to noise from EMI and RFI, immunity to EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse interference), no radiated signature that can be
Intercepted and lighter weight. TeraComm is pleased to represent some of the leading companies in the industry providing critical
components, test equipment and custom assemblies in this application space.
