Wisycom - MFL Wideband Optical Link

Wisycom - MFL Wideband Optical Link

MFL system is a modular 1RU chassis containing up to 4 channels of optical RF over fiber links, each containing multiple carrier capacity. An optional optical multiplexer (Mux) enables bi-directional communication of all laser channels over one single-mode fiber.


An MFL system is perfect for turnkey RF applications that require remote zoning of diversity wireless microphone receive antennas, and simultaneous transmit of IFB or IEM signals. Intended to overcome the limitations of coax, and create optimum RF signal integrity over extreme long distances. Highly configurable (see MFL System Configurations).


Tunable RF Filters: The start of the signal chain offers multiple RF filtering options – both tunable and fixed – for complete control of the wireless microphone receive signal to obtain the desired RF receive signal window.


Variable gain RF amplifier and attenuators enable complete dynamic control of RF signal levels across all signal paths. Provides the optimum real-time agility necessary for any changing conditions.


RF Meter: Simple one touch RF Power meter to isolate and monitor RF power levels and real-time power levels of the individual optical links.



Dynamic range: Optimum dynamic range flexibility is the heart of precision RF over fiber implementation. To achieve this, the MFL offers two preset modes: Antenna mode for optimum receive levels, and IFB mode for optimum transmit levels of IFB (or IEM) to remote zones.


Optical AGC: Robust OPTICAL Automatic Gain Control (AGC) automatically compensates for changing conditions such as multiple fiber patch points on site that can attribute to possible undesirable signal losses.


High Dynamic Range Optical Lasers: Each laser transmitter is designed for optimal signal with the highest dynamic range for this application; combined with dual optical isolators create the cleanest possible optical links.


Customize system options: Many options from Tx and Rx laser module configurations, DC power input, optical multiplexer (Combine Tx, Rx and ethernet control over a single strand of fiber). Simple integration with Wisycom’s complete offering of RF Distribution products both transmit and receive.


Seamless integration with Wisycom MTK952 Master/ Slave for transmit distribution applications allowing plug and play of multiple zones of IFB or IEM coverage.


Remote Ethernet Control: Remotely monitor and control each zone from a single position. Optical levels, temperature, signal levels, filters, amplifiers all from the Wisycom manager software.


Redundant Backup: For added security, the MFL was designed to accommodate complete equipment duplication for redundant failsafe backup system.
