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.

systems,” saidAG Rao, executive president, Technology and
Enterprise Business, Tata Teleservices Limited. “This will allow us to
offer our customers the best wireless solutions cost effectively.”
In response to the discontinuation of HELIAX VXL, CommScope has made
significant investments to localize FXL cable production at its
manufacturing center in Goa, India. Additional production facilities
