TelecomFuture mobile networks will deliver much more. Because networks are constantly evolving and upgrading, we provide network infrastructure to support these developments at 5G:
We focus on solutions that maximize the use of existing infrastructure while providing the lowest possible latency with the highest possible bandwidth connection.
We provide a physical layer network, which is agnostic for current and future new radio suppliers to ensure maximum interoperability.
We aim to design solutions with our client who manages a highly densified network with 1000’s of new endpoints at the far end, while ensuring that the central part can grow correspondingly by handling the fiber efficiently.
Our overall goal is to simplify, and thus reduce costs, for cell site distribution and maintenance and C-RAN.
Our solutions support the building of central locations such as C-RAN sites, external radio installations, indoor and outdoor small cells as well as indoor and outdoor distributed antenna systems. But we also provide solutions that increase capacity or make the physical optical layer configurable.
The growing number of smart mobile devices is challenging the capacity of wireless networks. The most effective technique for increasing capacity is to reuse the frequency by installing significantly more cell sites.
Small cells, low-powered outdoor access nodes with a typical range of 10 to several hundred meters, provide a cost-effective way to increase the number of cell spaces. This in turn improves coverage in the city streets and in buildings such as airports, train stations, shopping malls and sports stadiums that are otherwise difficult to reach with traditional macro cells. Due to their smaller power and size and the fact that they can be used discreetly in buildings and metropolitan street infrastructure (eg bus stops, advertising boxes, etc.), small cells and the cabling infrastructure also differ significantly from typical macro-cell RRH installations.
Our supplier HUBER + SUHNER, the global leader in remote controlled radio head connectivity solutions for macrocells, has developed a product portfolio that specifically addresses the needs of Small Cell distributions. It consists of a whole family of robust and easy-to-install fiber optic cable systems designed to launch, extend, and complete daisy chain installations to connect external radio heads to base stations. The portfolio is complemented by radio frequency jumpers, MIMO antennas and flat panel antennas for mm wave fluctuations.
Robust outdoor as well as indoor solutions complete the offering.
Wireless infrastructure includes various radio frequency and fiber optic technologies. We are capable of both technologies and have the appropriate solution for each macrocell application. One-stop-shop reduces the complexity of the buyer and opens up for additional financial benefits.
In the field of external remote installation solutions, our supplier HUBER + SUHNER is a world leader. We offer a comprehensive portfolio of FTTA (fiber to the antenna), PTTA (Power to the Antenna) and HTTA (Hybrid to the Antenna) products, tailored to the customer’s needs.
Our supplier HUBER + SUHNER offers 3 different FTTA cabling systems, MASTERLINE Classic (MLC), MASTERLINE Extreme (MLE) and MASTERLINE Ultimate (MLU). HUBER + SUHNER’s MASTERLINE cabling systems are the most efficient and easy to install fiber optic products available on the market. All HUBER + SUHNER MASTERLINE fiber optic cabling systems use glass armored multi-fiber loose tube cables (6 to 48 fibers). With a short fiber optic jumper, wiring systems connect quickly and easily to vendor-specific RRH interfaces.
Certainly one of the most pressing issues that network operators are currently facing is the dramatic and sustained acceleration of the growth of mobile data traffic. Traditional, but more significant, smartphones, mobile personal computing, mobile commerce and new 4G, Wi-Max and LTE services require bandwidth and help to overwhelm the capacity of existing wireless backhaul connections everywhere. Thus, the ground-based infrastructure vulnerability, which was primarily evident in links from distribution / aggregation nodes to cell locations in urban and urban zones, continues to spread to industrial and rural areas.
The problem boils down to the classic mobile bottleneck problem with backhaul: not enough fiber available to handle bandwidth. Moreover, the difficulty is compounded by the fact that many wireless carriers either want or require dedicated connections through the network operator’s connectivity options and traditionally dictate the provision of individual threads in the first mile backhaul.
Cube Optics (CUBO) has tackled this fundamental bandwidth problem used on telecom, HFC, data center and wireless backhaul and access infrastructure. CUBO has helped many network operators deploy CWDM solutions for Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM) quickly and efficiently as a proven low cost, fast to install, future compatible and minimal latency full protocol interoperable approach to address fiber backing in the mobile backhaul the significant space and power requirements for maintenance that surround active systems.
With a transition to C-RAN architecture, the central hub becomes an important area that requires “Excellence in Connectivity” throughout.
Potentially, hundreds or thousands of connections need to be retrieved, managed within the infrastructure, and routed where needed. Equipment racks that contain important network elements need to seamlessly connect to each other as an optimized system where each element is the key to the overall success.
The way this central hub is designed can have a major positive (or negative) impact on the C-RAN structure.
