It’s no secret that the technology world wants solutions that can be used while on-the-go, without wires attached. And as the wireless connectivity industry becomes more complex, the demand for conventional cell sites with cables for RF signal transmission are transitioning into remote radio systems with 48V power supply and fiber optic signal feed, coined the Smart DC Kit.
Now as the installed cables can be leveraged as supply lines for the RRHs, it is important that fiber is placed within the inner conductor tube of the coaxial cable and the DC power supply can be utilized within both the inner and outer conductor.
This extremely innovative installation method, which is powered by HUBER+SUHNER dramatically cuts the costs need to control the cable path. In addition, this wireless connectivity solution enables work that was once needed to get crucial elements including wall and roof ducts to be opened and cables being laid to be completely eliminated.
Some of the features of this DC Kit include the fact that it is now simple to connect DC power cables with corrugated cables, three different types of kits are available in 7/8”, 1 1/4” and 1 5/8” dimensions, it can be seamlessly integrated with multiple types of corrugated cables and each kit encompasses a DC cable pigtail.
In addition, companies that begin to leverage this wireless connectivity solution will see a DC current rating of up to 60 A, increased lightning current handling capability similar to that of a real strike at 50 kA, reduced installation time, much less labor, material and equipment required, and a high level of technical support.
HUBER+SUHNER is constantly trying to enhance users wireless connectivity and recently TMCnet reported that it had unveiled a new line of products under the name MASTERLINE which are extreme hybrid products that are “tailored for mobile operators who do not have [their] own tower infrastructure but rent the majority of their tower cell sites…The hybrid solution minimizes the annually recurring rental fee at the one-time cost of a more expensive and complex cable infrastructure,” according to the company.
