Find the Ideal Match for your Deployment with RFS’ Comprehensive RADIAFLEX® Selection Guide

RFS’ RADIAFLEX® radiating cables act as distributed antennas, allowing operators to scale and tailor RF coverage in even the most challenging confined spaces such as metro, rail and road tunnels and indoor environments. RFS has developed a handy selection guide to find the cable that best fits your needs.

It’s On: Live Broadcasting Commences at One World Trade Center

It’s On: Live Broadcasting Commences at One World Trade Center

The official start of relocation of live broadcasting to One World Trade Center (One WTC) in New York City began on 23 June 2017. WNJU CH36 is the first television channel to transition broadcast operations to the new future-proof antenna deployment at One WTC, which is comprised of RFS’ UHF PEP40E antenna, combiner and RF switch frame. Other stations will relocate over the next several months, including WCBS, WPXN and WNET. RFS has spent several years working closely with The Durst Organization, Myat and individual broadcasters on UHF and VHF antenna installations for One WTC – the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere – which will deliver terrestrial television services to the entire NYC coverage area.

RFS’ new generation of radiating cable connectors are specifically designed to meet operators’ needs for lower passive intermodulation (PIM) and faster, easier installations. The new series, ideally suited for smoothwall radiating cable, feature a clamping outer conductor contact rather than the spring finger outer conductor contact that was used in the previous generation of connectors. This design enhancement enables the new series of connectors, referred to as P02, to have a PIM rating that is typically less than -155 dBc, and guaranteed to be less than -150 dBc.

High-Performance MIMO Applications Enabling the Highest Data Rates Attainable with Industry-Leading Radiating Cables

High-Performance MIMO Applications Enabling the Highest Data Rates Attainable with Industry-Leading Radiating Cables

The new RAYA cables, the latest addition to RFS’ market-leading RADIAFLEX® radiating cable series, feature vertically polarized radiation, complementing RFS’ horizontally polarized RLKU family of products. RLKU and RAYA products are the perfect counterparts to realize balanced performance for MIMO applications with highest data rates in all bands. The new RAYA cables enable ultra-broadband frequency bandwidth, supporting all global 2G/3G/4G/4G+/5G commercial wireless bands and all mission critical bands simultaneously. Because they have no stop bands the cables can accommodate additional wireless services in the future.

Building a Better Network with Custom Filters That Prevent Interference

Building a Better Network with Custom Filters That Prevent Interference

The increasing demand for 4G and 5G networks forces Mobile Network Operators to expand networks closer to existing spectrum. Building these new networks requires special consideration in order to prevent interference, which can degrade system performance and increase the number of dropped calls in the network. RFS is ideally positioned to address today’s highly sophisticated, tailor-made co-location filtering requirements with a wide range of RF conditioning products covering all bands. Learn how RFS was able to deliver on the promise of better repeatability and quicker turnaround times on custom filter designs.
