CommScope Offers Upgraded HELIAX 3.0 Cabling for Cell Sites

CommScope announced the latest generation of its HELIAX interconnect solution designed for all types of cellular network site architectures.

HELIAX 3.0, built on Andrew Solutions connectivity technology, offers hybrid fiber and coaxial options for traditional as well as remote radio head configurations. The interconnect solution also provides faster, easier installations, network consistency and reduced passive intermodulation (PIM).

For sites with remote radio heads, HELIAX Remote Fiber Feeder (RFF) Cable combines power conductors and fiber into a single, high-performance cable. The RFF Cable features a gel-free design, a UV-rated outer jacket, rugged lightning-tested shield, and dry moisture-blocking elements within each fiber component. RFF Cable is available in single-mode or multi-mode with fiber and power conductor configurations and counts to supply a wide range of remote radio unit designs.

“HELIAX 3.0 is poised to become the interconnect solution for LTE. As network complexity increases, it’s critical to have one trusted solution that helps you deploy new technology quickly and easily,�? said Stan Catey, senior vice president, Cable Products, CommScope. “Operators must manage both national and regional networks with varying preferences, installations and technology overlays—doing so cost-efficiently is a growing challenge for them. Many networks now use both traditional coax and hybrid fiber components, which can make it difficult to ensure all equipment works together efficiently and properly. We believe HELIAX 3.0 brings it all together for operators in a way that hasn’t been done before.�?http://
