Simplifying cell site connectivity
As 5G ramps up, antenna-radio connections are growing more complex. With 75 years of experience, HELIAX® keeps evolving to address new outdoor wireless connectivity challenges—new designs ease deployment, boost quality even in the harshest environments, and optimize total cost of ownership. This trusted name has expanded from coaxial and now includes fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) and cluster connector solutions. Fueled by input from customers and CommScope’s commitment, HELIAX will continue to adapt and lead.
Mating each radio port to its associated antenna port—while suspended atop a tower—is becoming more costly and risky with increasing port counts and complex configurations. Next-gen cluster connectivity will help operators with 5G deployments.
As sites require upgrading to add new bands and 5G, connector designs become more important to allow antennas to do more without adding more weight and wind load to the towers.
Antenna port counts of up to 30 and complex MIMO configurations with multiple radio connections require smarter connectivity solutions to ensure accurate and secure mating.
Fiber-to-the-antenna deployments need a variety of solutions to meet the priorities for each site. Simplifying these deployments can save significant time and costs.
The uniquely designed M-LOC cluster connector system allows quick and easy installation, while assuring mating accuracy in antenna-radio connections—especially critical in 4T4R and 8T8R MIMO configurations. This cluster technology delivers excellent electrical performance for both TDD and FDD.
3/8” diameter jumpers with 1/2” performance—excellent for use in small cells and tight places.
Drop fiber cables with hardened connectors for reliable small cell fiber connectivity to the RRU.
