HYBRIFLEX® Hybrid Cable, 1/2”, 1 pair 10AWG, 2 pair Single-Mode Fiber

Rev : A | Rev date : 02 Jun 2021


RFS’ HYBRIFLEX Remote Radio Head (RRH) hybrid feeder cabling solution combines optical fiber and DC power for RRHs in a single lightweight aluminum corrugated cable, making it the world’s most innovative solution for RRH deployments. It was developed to reduce installation complexity and costs at Cellular sites. HYBRIFLEX allows mobile operators deploying an RRH architecture to standardize the RRH installation process. HYBRIFLEX combines optical fiber (multi-mode or single-mode) and power in a single corrugated cable. It may eliminate the need for junction boxes and can connect multiple RRHs with a single feeder. Standard RFS CELLFLEX® accessories can be used with HYBRIFLEX cable.


  • Aluminum corrugated armor with outstanding bending characteristics - Minimizes installation time and enables mechanical protection and shielding
  • Outer conductor grounding - Saves on installation costs
  • Lightweight solution and compact design - Decreases tower loading
  • Robust cabling - Eliminates need for expensive cable trays and ducts
  • Installation of tight bundled fiber optic cable pairs directly to the RRH - Reduces CAPEX and wind load by eliminating need for interconnection
  • Optical fiber and power cables housed in single corrugated cable - Saves CAPEX by standardizing RRH cable installation and reducing installation requirements
  • UL-Listed, flame-retardant jacket, UV protected - Allows both indoor and outdoor applications
