PowerShift® is the intelligent, plug-and-play DC power supply
Are you ready for a PowerShift?

"PowerShift is a truly unique and novel implementation of power-supply technology."

Judge, Fierce Innovation Award 2016

Not only are today’s high-performance, higher-wattage remote radio units (RRUs) consuming more power, operators are installing more of them to better support skyrocketing data traffic. These RRUs demand thicker, more expensive copper cables.

Avoid the LTE power squeeze
The wireless experts at CommScope and power experts at GE have partnered to create PowerShift™, the industry’s first intelligent, plug-and-play DC power supply. PowerShift is designed to optimize electrical draw by adjusting voltage dynamically to match your exact RRU power requirements, eliminating the need for a tower top converter. PowerShift also increases the amount of time your battery backup runs, allowing your RRUs to stay active up to 30% longer in case of a power outage.

Whether you’re adding or replacing RRUs, building new macro sites or deploying small cells, PowerShift tilts the power in your favor by helping you:

  • Optimize energy usage costs
  • Simplify installations and save CapEx or OpEx
  • Increase RRU uptime on battery backup
  • Expand cable lengths and standardize cable sizes

Shift the balance of power
Since PowerShift was designed in partnership with GE and is a vital part of our Andrew® portfolio, you take confidence that you benefit from some of the world’s finest wireless infrastructure and power expertise. Shift the balance of power: choose PowerShift.
