Coaxial Hardline Cables
High-performance hardline cables that are easy to install
CommScope has supplied coaxial cables for over 40 years, since the dawn of CATV (cable television). They are the industry standard. Why? Because of design and construction techniques that produce a quality cable with excellent performance characteristics, at the right price.
Developed to provide low RF attenuation and to integrate easily with existing plant cable, these hardline cables meet the increasing demands of modern broadband networks. With billions of feet of coaxial cables deployed, CommScope is a trusted name.
For trunk and distribution applications, the 75-ohm P3® and QR® coaxial cables are the standard.
Polyethylene (PE) dielectric features closed-cell gas expanded foaming technology, with an impressive signal propagation at 87 percent of the speed of light.
QR®—optimal design and construction
The flexible alternative with superior performance characteristics, in a smaller cable.
Common features for P3® and QR® cables
ACT™, or Advanced Coring Technology™, holds United States Patent 7,497,010— Method for manufacturing a coaxial cable with a strippable center conductor pre-coat. Designed to shear away under the torsional forces applied when coring the cable, ACT™ often provides a clean center conductor as part of this process. If not, the center conductor will come clean with a single pull of a center conductor cleaning tool. This remarkable feature eliminates the many bad practices that are used to clean center conductors that often damage the copper skin.
All CommScope P3® and QR® cables are engineered and tested to 1.2 and 1.8 GHz frequencies required to deliver reliable Extended Spectrum DOCSIS (ESD) and help operators transition strategically to the next generation.
