Wireless operators often need to balance delivering reliable services to
customers with reducing operating costs. China
Unicom, one of the largest carriers in China, is deploying
CommScope’s smoothwall RF feeder coaxial cable in projects in Guangxi
Province, taking advantage of the cable’s superior performance and cost
savings versus traditional corrugated copper cabling. Projects in which
HELIAX FXL coaxial cable are being deployed include the 550,000 square
No. 1 Northern Bay residential complex.
“Most wireless operators demand high quality products to build their
networks, unwilling to sacrifice performance for cost savings,” said
Chinnee Tong, vice president, China Sales, CommScope. “We are excited
that China Unicom has joined many other wireless operators in trusting
advantages of our HELIAX® FXL coaxial cable.”
FXL smoothwall cable from CommScope, a global leader in
infrastructure solutions for communication networks, uses aluminum as
the electrical conduit of the cable’s outer conductor. The cable’s
patented microcell dielectric and foam-filled inner conductor offer the
- Superior Performance and Efficiency - Lower attenuation,
helping data move faster and more efficiently across networks
- Faster and Easier Deployments - Lighter, stronger and flexible
- Reliability and Consistency - Field proven, excellent weather
- Cost Savings - Less tower loading, lower freight costs and
With more than 100 million feet already deployed worldwide, HELIAX FXL
cable is paving the way for an eco-friendly communications
infrastructure around the world. The smoothwall cable has won the Golden
Award for Green Communication Energy-Efficiency Technology in China.
Compared with traditional all-copper cables, HELIAX FXL is more
energy-efficient, durable and has greater flexibility. In addition, it
requires less electric power and fuel to manufacture and transport. And,
with its aluminum outer conductor, it is less prone to the theft issues
that have been affecting network components made entirely from copper.
“CommScope’s wireless solutions, under the Andrew brand, have been
renowned for its quality and versatility for years,” a China Unicom
official said. “We are pleased to see that CommScope is extending and
strengthening these benefits to its HELIAX FXL cable.”
HELIAX FXL conforms to the European Union’s RoHS (Restriction of
Hazardous Substances) and China’s RoHS SJ/T 11364-2006 directives.
“HELIAX FXL represents another evolution in wireless network
infrastructure technology, offering significant benefits to operators
worldwide,” said Tong. “And competition is intense in a rapidly growing
market for mobile subscriptions such as China, adding to the importance
of operators balancing the need for the highest performance in their
networks while keeping costs low. HELIAX FXL helps operators accomplish
