2.0 smoothwall cables, the feeder and jumper coaxial cable line
solution offered by Andrew
Solutions, the CommScope, Inc. division that is a global leader in
wireless communications systems and products.
“Japan is known as one of the most demanding markets in the wireless
industry with high expectations for advanced technology and superior
quality,” said Akira Kawada, country manager and president, Andrew
Solutions Japan. “Andrew has established a long, successful track record
with almost all the Japanese operators, delivering superior products

Andrew is providing its FXL
smoothwall feeder cables and SFX
smoothwall superflexible cable assemblies to the two Japanese
operators in support of their 3G/4G networks. The company’s HELIAX 2.0
smoothwall cables deliver lower attenuation, higher crush strength, and
reduced weight when compared to competitors’ copper cables. The lower
and more stable raw material cost of aluminum translates into savings
for any network, supporting all frequency bands with superb performance.
Andrew is also supplying cable
station antennas and RF
splitters to one of the operators. Andrew bundled all the equipment
into more easily and quickly deployable site kits based on the Japanese
lunch box concept called “bento” boxes. “Of course the main dish of
Andrew’s bento box is our broadband next generation HELIAX FXL and SFX
smoothwall cable solutions,” said Kawada.
Andrew has been established in Japan for almost 30 years with the Andrew
brand being recognized for superior quality, reliable delivery and
outstanding service. Andrew delivers products in volume to almost all
the Japanese operators and believes it is the only supplier in Japan
capable of delivering such a wide variety of RF path solutions.
Andrew will display its next generation HELIAX 2.0 cable family along
with CommScope’s comprehensive portfolio of connectivity solutions for
the Asia-Pacific marketplace at CommunicAsia
2010, which runs June 15 – 18 in Singapore.
