Meriden, CT, USA December 18, 2019 – Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) has collaborated with ConcealFab to enable ConcealFab’s 5G Radio Concealment Shroud to efficiently package a sizable amount of 5G mmW radio equipment, 4G radios, and interconnection cables while ensuring optimal radio frequency (RF) performance. “Using RFS’s patented diplexers, which are the size of an apple, we have been able to accommodate the carrier’s equipment configurations within the stringent form-factor and size constraints of the DoITT shroud” stated ConcealFab Executive VP, Technical Fellow William “Doc” Pounds.

Mo, Bhuyan, Director of Key Accounts at RFS added, “To tackle network density – one of the biggest 5G hurdles – operators need to deliver 5G by installing large amounts of equipment, without visual impact. We’re delighted to have worked with ConcealFab on a solution that addresses this to let 5G reach its full potential.” 

As 5G can utilize high-frequency energy to transmit and receive voice and data, ConcealFab’s proprietary shroud materials had to optimize signal strength while protecting the equipment from weather and environmental exposure in a compact and easy to service configuration. Empirical testing has proven maximum RF performance from ConcealFab’s proprietary clearWaveTM radome material. Operators can now mount on a variety of new or existing pole types, in both the communication and power spaces, in 360-degrees of azimuth orientation. The familiar shape of the DoITT Shroud is widely used for 4G deployments, and the 5G Concealment Shroud’s attachment to one pole quadrant meets Utility pole climbing requirements.
