Foxcom releases its next generation G5000 Series Fiber Optic Outdoor Unit (ODU)

The G5000 series is the ideal solution for Earth Stations, Broadcast Facilities, VSAT Hubs and Maritime Platforms. The G5000 series will allow for short or long distance transmission of RF signals over single mode fiber from DC to 15GHz.


The new G5000 Series ODU follows in the footsteps of Foxcom’s hugely successful first generation 4000 series ODU. Unlike it’s IP-64 rated predecessor, the new G5000 modular platform is IP65 rated and can accommodate up to 6 hot-swappable optical cards, allowing users to upgrade or change their configuration in the field. Foxcom CEO, Mr. Jack Hotz said “The new ODU design reflects the needs of operators worldwide to reduce costs and risk of downtime, while providing seamless transmission of multiple high quality signals”


The RF optical modules in the ODU will interface with the entire range of Foxcom products including the new Gold and Platinum platforms. Other features include 1:1 redundancy, auto/manual gain control, selectable 13/18V LNB powering and SNMP based monitor and control.


The ODU will be available with single or dual power supplies. An IP67 rated ODU for more extreme outdoor conditions with Milspec optical connectors, will be available later this year.
