Andrew Corporation, a global leader in communications systems and
products, has introduced its new ValuStar(TM) line of low cost, premium
quality all-steel antennas for the direct-to-home (DTH) and receive-only
very small aperture terminal (VSAT) markets.
The new ValuStar antennas range in size from 60 centimeters to 1.5
meters and are typically used in broadcast (one way) satellite
communication systems for distributing video, audio, and/or data
content. They offer customers the best possible value by incorporating
low cost design-for-manufacturing features along with the highest level
of performance and quality, a unique combination in the general purpose
DTH and VSAT markets.
"Andrew's new mid-range ValuStar antennas combine low-cost design
features with the high quality manufacturing and warranty of our premium
antennas," said George Jusaites, product line management, Satellite
Communications Group, Andrew Corporation. "The result is a product that
arrives at the site in good condition, is easy to install, and performs
well for years to come."
ValuStar antennas--available today--are ideal for DTH satellite
equipment dealers and installers seeking a low-cost antenna solution
that is easy to install and offers excellent performance value. They
also are an excellent choice for VSAT networks that require low cost
receive-only user terminals for price sensitive projects.
Andrew's Satellite Communications Group provides a complete line of
antennas from 43 centimeters to 11.5 meters for all enterprise,
government, and consumer satellite communication applications.
Andrew-designed and -built products--which cover C, Ku, K, X, and the
emerging Ka band--include type approved earth station antenna hubs and
gateways for broadband and broadcast, VSAT broadband antennas for
consumer and enterprise customers, DBS antennas for home satellite
broadcast systems, and complete installation and testing services.
