ince we started Swedish Microwave in 1986 our business has seen many companies come and go. Today we are Europe’s oldest manufacturer of Low noise block converters (LNB), serving a global market.
There are several keys to our success. One is that we specialize in LNBs only and thus manage to focus on developing products in line with customer needs. Another is our in-house manufacturing capacity, which generates short lead times, great flexibility and prompt delivery of products as well as of service and support. As a result the general customer opinion is that we are uncomplicated and pleasant to work with.
Whatever changes may arise, now or in the future, one thing is certain. We will continue to tailor-make our customers’ communication. As we have done since 1986.
Enabling satellite and connectivity at air, sea, and land.
CABLE-TV HEADENDS Swedish Microwave LNBs meets all kind of applications with low phase noise and high LO stability options.
VSAT is an abbreviation for a Very Small Aperture Terminal. It is basically a two-way satellite ground station. The transmission rates of VSATs are usually very low and professional LNBs are to be recommended.
With our LNBs you can meet tough conditions at sea and have full frequency coverage. Quality and long-term reliability is always essential.
SATELLITE NEWS GATHERING (SNG) is the use of mobile communications equipment for the purpose of worldwide newscasting. For this you need professional LNBs.
