HUBER+SUHNER, leading manufacturer of components and systems for optical and electrical connectivity, is tackling the increasing power and expansion challenges faced as 5G approaches, with the launch of its one-of-a-kind hybrid cabling system solution for remote radio installations.
The pre-connectorised factory-sealed solution, the MLUH HV, has the features of the HUBER+SUHNER MASTERLINE Ultimate Hybrid (MLUH), yet offers a slimmer, lighter and more flexible solution. The cable is fast and easy-to-install, supports up to 12 remote radio heads (RRHs) and connects them with easy-to-install Q-ODC fiber optic jumpers and power jumpers.
The latest addition to the HUBER+SUHNER MASTERLINE portfolio is able to deliver power at 230V AC directly to the radio heads, reducing loss and allowing higher power consumption for future 5G network equipment. Installers can achieve the same distance between the power source and radio head while utilising smaller diameter of the MLUH HV cable.
“Ultimately, operators can save on capital expenditure with our new cable offering as less copper is used,” said Miroslaw Mrozik, Head of Product Management at HUBER+SUHNER. “The MLUH HV boasts higher power capabilities in a single cable, is flexible, future-proof, and easy-to-install. Fast and reliable rollouts for timely projects come together with reduced total cost of ownership, as no other product offers such a high-quality solution in an AC voltage compliant setting.”
