Hybrid installation systems
Hybrid-riser cable with compact connector head
Our supplier HUBER+SUHNER’s most innovative hybrid cabling system for remote radio installation: MASTERLINE Ultimate Hybrid. The pre-connectorized factory-sealed hybrid systems supports up to 6 RRHs and connects the remote radios with easy-to-install Q-ODC fiberoptic and power jumpers. The robust connector head with an integrated pulling eye allow for easy cable lifting without the need for hoisting grips. The encapsulated connector head can be directly attached to the mast with a single “click” at a pre-mounted adaptor plate. These unique features make MASTERLINE Ultimate Hybrid the best-in-class product in terms of ease of mast-top installation, installation robustness and efficiency.
Hybrid-riser cable with compact connector head, high voltage CE marked
The most innovative hybrid cabling system for remote radio installation from HUBER+SUHNER became even more innovative by offering capability to deliver 230 VAC up the mast, allowing much longer cabling with significant cost savings on cables and more efficient power transfer. The pre-connectorised factory-sealed hybrid systems supports up to 12 RRHs and connects the remote radios with easy-to-install Q-ODC fiber optic and power jumpers. The encapsulated connector head can be directly attached to the mast with a single “click” at a pre-mounted adaptor plate. These unique features make MASTERLINE Ultimate Hybrid High Voltage the only in-class product offering all the advantages of the MASTERLINE Ultimate family together with high voltage conformity confirmed by the worldwide recognized CE marking. For extra safety the whole head is protected by removable cover.
ur supplier HUBER+SUHNER’s hybrid cabling system is the most efficient and easiest to install product available on the market. Mobile operators on four continents verified that MASTERLINE Extreme Hybrid can be installed in half of the time of competitive hybrid solutions based on corrugated coax cable designs. The factory-terminated “plug & play” system in combination with a highly flexible and easy-to-route cable makes the HUBER+SUHNER solution the hybrid cable of choice for operators, system vendors and installers alike.
The pre-terminated hybrid cable assembly minimises the quantity of cables running up the mast. The compact divider splits the optical fiber and DC power cable into individual ruggedised outdoor cables which are linked to the RRHs – either directly or via extension jumpers without the need for bulky mast mount distribution boxes. The RRH jumpers allow an adaptation to different RRH interfaces and therefore make the solution independent from the system vendor’s hardware.
Hybrid-riser cable with distribution box
This solution, a factory-terminated hybrid-riser cable assembly, minimises the amount of cables running up the mast. At the hybrid distribution box the multi-fiber/wire cable is split into individual cables which are linked to the RRHs with short jumper cables. The jumpers allow an adaptation to different RRH interfaces and therefore make the solution independent from the system vendor’s hardware. A box solution enables the use of circuit breaker and/or surge protection devices.
However, this installation method requires large and bulky boxes on the top of the mast. With increasing number of remote ratios per site, space limitations and wind load become critical issues. Many operators also want to avoid the risk of opening and maintaining mast-top boxes by non-trained or non-authorised persons.
