Fiber-optic communication systems have revolutionized the telecommunications industry and are playing a major role in the advent of the Information Age. To better compete in today's markets, cable operators need solutions that effectively provide HDTV, digital voice and high-speed data while leveraging existing network equipment and cable modems. Broadband Optical Access and Fiber to the Home (FTTH) provides the ultimate broadband service capability. The usage of optical fiber throughout their systems as the backbone architecture and as the long-distance connection between city phone systems is prevalent throughout this industry.
Spectrant supports a large portfolio of Active and Passive components for Optical, CATV, and FTTH/RFoG, and products for the Headend, Infrastructure and CPE markets. Key performance parameters for these components include increased efficiency, more realizable thermal performance, lower costs and overall design simplification while supporting the latest DOCSIS system requirements.
Telematics embodies all devices that integrate telecommunications and infomatics, and is utilized primarily in vehicles to provide navigation, internet, television, roadside assistance and remote unlocking. Companies rely on Telematics for fleet management and asset tracking. GPS, a major component of Telematics, is also used by major defense contractors for accurate information and precision guidance and is the standard tool for obtaining precise position, navigation and timing information for military forces.
Spectrant offers components used along the GPS chain. Both commercial and various high precision military components are offered as well as high volume low cost industrial and consumer oriented products.
Wireless devices have permeated the medical arena with a wide range of capabilities. Not only improving the quality of life of patients and doctor-patient efficiency, wireless technology enables clinicians to monitor patients remotely and gives them timely health information, reminders and support. Portable devices such as heart rate monitors, pulse oximeters and blood pressure monitors are essential instruments in intensive care, fitness and wellness. With 4G and WiFi, caregivers have access into vital information anywhere and at any time within the healthcare networks. RFID, Bluetooth and ZigBee are all providing data transmission for medical applications. Implantable devices such as cochlear implants, pacemakers and cardiac defibrillators require wireless to solve performance, power and size challenges. On the horizon, implantable wireless brain devices are being tested as a means of relieving depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, as well as restoring movement in those with severe physical limitations.
Spectrant supports technologies that address implantable design requirements either directly with OEM's or through contract manufacturers. Our diverse customer base encompasses a wide range of wireless medical portable and stationary OEM and consumer products.
Consumer electronics continues its trend of convergence, combining various functionalities - communication, entertainment, location and office productivity. Technology integration and sophistication are constantly pushing performance limits, power consumption and size, while keeping pace with demanding cost targets. Products such as laptops, tablets, smart phones, music players, TVs and game consoles fall into this category. Recent trends continue to rely heavily on smaller, lighter and more integrated functionality, along with larger and higher definition screens. A mix of traditional brick and mortar and internet based suppliers dominate this industry. Competition is fierce and market share varies from product to product.
Spectrant supports consumer electronics components necessary for today’s high performance, low cost platforms - from OEMs locally to CM’s around the globe. Spectrant supports technologies that drive innovation in this ever changing market environment.
Dramatic advances in RF, Microwave and Millimeter wave technologies have been critical in supporting demanding Space and Defense system requirements which call for reduced size and weight, in addition to improved performance and reduced cost. As a result, Spectrant has helped direct our suppliers to achieve leading edge performance for military, satellite and radar customers in Southern California. Space and military platforms are driven by ever increasing communications bandwidth requirements, a result of higher demand in data and video links for both commercial and military payloads.
Spectrant has been serving both the Space and Defense markets for over 15 years with high performance and high reliability components and subsystems. Our field sales engineers take great pride in bringing the highest quality RF, Microwave and Millimeter wave products to our commercial contractors and government users.
LTE network deployment has been robust, as mobile operators pour more resources into infrastructure to keep pace with mobile data traffic. LTE base stations are the last link in a chain connecting users to the mobile network. VSAT provides customers with a reliable communication mode for data, voice, video and images. The VSAT network has the capacity to handle voice, internet access, data transmission as well as public network communications. Wireless backhaul provides cost-effective high data bandwidth for voice and data traffic from the mobile base to the operators’ core network. Applications such as mobile video conferencing, music downloading and mobile internet games form the main market drivers for the wireless and mobile backhaul equipment market. Wireless backhaul technology is the foundation for cellular backhaul, building-to-building connectivity and video surveillance backhaul.
Spectrant offers critical components supporting the Infrastructure market. For our customers, our cost-effective products offer unparalleled performance across all LTE, VSAT and wireless backhaul industries. Our manufacturers benefit from our hardware design experience and broad customer knowledge.
