Fiber to the Antenna (FTTA) Turnkey Solution

Finally, RRU deployment that makes (dollars and) sense

To increase performance and lower costs, many operators are looking to remote radio unit (RRU) deployments. They’re an important part of network modernization but Fiber to the Antenna (FTTA) configurations can be time consuming and complex.

CommScope can help. Our FTTA turnkey solution is an integrated system for implementation of RRUs at the top of the tower.

Using fiber-based connectivity solutions such as HELIAX® FiberFeed® and multi-band antennas, FTTA deploys quickly and easily. FiberFeed is available for a wide variety of budgets and purposes:

FiberFeed Direct is ideal for plug-n-play installs where OpEx rates are high and tower space is a priority.  Save on installation and tower leasing costs.

FiberFeed Standard Hybrid is ideal where total ownership costs are important or the flexibility of trunked cables and distribution boxes are preferred.

FiberFeed Discrete is ideal for providing basic connectivity at the lowest costs and matching existing FTTA architecture on towers and rooftops.

Choose the smart, simple, flexible way to personalize and roll out your FTTA strategy.
