HYBRIFLEX® RRH Hybrid Feeder Cabling Solution6x12, 4 AWG, 1-5/8”, Single-Mode Fiber, 70m

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 and eliminate the need for and cost of cable grounding. HYBRIFLEX combines optical fiber (multi-mode or single-mode) and power in a single corrugated cable. It eliminates the need for junction boxes and can connect multiple RRHs with a single feeder. Standard RFS CELLFLEX® accessories can be used with HYBRIFLEX cable. Both pre-connectorized and on-site options are available.

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • Aluminum corrugated armor with outstanding bending characteristics – Minimizes installation time and enables mechanical protection and shielding
  • Armored fiber optic breakout  Preserves the integrity of the fiber and provides mechanical/environmental protection
  • Same accessories as 1-5/8"" coaxial cable
  • Outer conductor grounding – Eliminates typical grounding requirements and 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
  • Outdoor, black PE jacket – Ensures long-lasting cable protection
  • Shielded DC wire  Jacketed and braided cable provides grounding and EMI protection
  • Maximum robustness  Fully armored cable includes riser and breakout
