CommScope Field Terminated Category 6A and Category 6 Modular Plugs

Region: Global
CommScope’s new field terminated Category 6A and Category 6 modular plugs are now available globally. These modular plugs comply with the Modular Plug Terminated Link (MPTL) method under the ANSI-TIA 586.2-D standard. MPTL offers installation flexibility of IoT sensors and devices by enabling cables to be directly connected to devices without the requirement of additional outlets and patch cords. The optimized design with minimal components provides a simple and fast termination process and is ideal for hard to access ceiling installations. Various colored anti-snag clips for customized plug identification are also available.

PowerShift® 2000FA provides intelligent DC power to the top of the tower

Region: Central and Latin AmericaEurope, Middle East, and AfricaU.S. and Canada
Trends are showing operators are installing more power to support higher demands from RRUs and increased data traffic. Rather than installing thicker, more expensive copper cables, CommScope developed the new PowerShift 2000FA to optimize the transmission of electrical power by regulating voltage at the RRU. This keeps -54 volts constant at RRUs and increases the amount of time your battery backup runs, plus simplifies installation and saves CapEx. PowerShift 2000FA provides 2,000 watts per RRU and supports up to four RRUs in a single rack unit chassis. Front inputs make connections easy in tight spaces, and modules are hot swappable.

New Microwave Antenna reduces Wind Load

Region: U.S. and Canada
Wind can be a devastating power that can create catastrophic situations, and humans have spent a tremendous amount of time and money to harness or mitigate this natural force. It is no different in the world of communications - especially with tower loading. CommScope is releasing a new antenna that will more efficiently redirect wind around the antenna, reducing wind load, compared to an antenna with a planar radome. The Low Wind Load Antenna uses a hard polymer molded radome to more aerodynamically direct the axial force of wind around the antenna.
