JMA Wireless, a global leader of wireless communications solutions, has partnered with HUBER+SUHNER, a leading supplier in FO and RF connectivity for the global communication market, to provide a hybrid power plus fiber Cell Site Cabling Solution (FttA+PttA).
By complementing a small size, modern design, hybrid cable system with a compact and highly innovative DC up-converter, this new offering helps to alleviate mobile operators’ CAPEX and OPEX leasing issues.
Today, carriers are deploying dual band, 4X4 MIMO (multiple input, multiple output), high powered remote radio heads (RRHs) at their macro sites. These radios require greater DC power consumption as compared to traditional low-power radios. The current hybrid power/fiber cable infrastructure simply will not support these high power (HP) radios at distances over 200’ due to greater voltage drops.
The voltage drop challenge is alleviated with PowerBoost, an inline voltage up-converter solution from JMA Wireless. Combined with the HUBER+SUHNER newly released high density 12x24 hybrid power/fiber cable, carriers can now power up to 12 dual/single band remote radio heads with a single hybrid cable while maintaining distances of up to 600’.
JMA Wireless’ PowerBoost significantly reduces expansion time, cabling costs and incremental tower loading by offering the lowest capital and operational investments needed, smallest footprint (one third smaller than competition), operational efficiency, a scalable system architecture, and lastly, power assurance.
The HD 12×24 Low Inductance Hybrid cable, the newest addition to the HUBER+SUHNER MASTERLINE Classic Hybrid cable portfolio, offers optimization for dual-band high powered radios and 12-OVP installations. The outstanding benefits include; extremely attractive CAPEX and OPEX savings, plus extra potential of re-negotiating tower leases, simple architecture offering high flexibility ideal for new build as well as side modifications, light weight, low wind load, and a superior grounding solution.
As experienced long-term quality partner in the global FttA customer project market, HUBER+SUHNER, is complementing these features and its standard product warranty by offering turnkey services, covering technical and sales support at market level as well as free training programs for contractors.
