JMA Wireless, has partnered with Huber+Suhner to provide an economical hybrid power plus fiber Cell Site Cabling Solution (FttA+PttA) on the market.
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 high-density 12×24 hybrid power/fiber cable, carriers can power up to 12 dual/single band remote radio heads with a single hybrid cable while maintaining distances of up to 600 feet.
“The industry’s smallest voltage up-converter, PowerBoost from JMA Wireless, pairs naturally with the HUBER+SUHNER high-density hybrid cable offering,” said Shawn Chawgo, VP of product line management – Transmission Systems at JMA Wireless. “This combination offers our customers the smallest and least expensive solution for their 4G and 5G high-power radio deployments.”
“For Huber+Suhner, the JMA Wireless DC power up-converter family with its modularity and high-density features is a perfect complement to our modular Masterline hybrid trunk cable portfolio,” said Patrik Schönenberger, head of Business Unit Fiber Connectivity Outdoor at Huber+Suhner. “This smart combination enables us to offer our customers in mobile network operations site-specific fiber and power connectivity solutions exactly addressing particular power challenges of typical macro cell site enhancements related to the upcoming 5G network evolution.”
