Custom optical cable solutions help reduce space needed for wireless cell tower applications

LISLE, IL – September 25, 2018 – Molex, a leading global manufacturer of electronic solutions, has launched Hybrid FTTA (Fiber to the Antenna)-PTTA (Power to the Antenna) Optical Cable Solutions for cell phone towers. The Hybrid FTTA-PTTA Optical Cable allows for maximized tower real estate while keeping installation processes low.

Molex hybrid cable assemblies are available with rugged features—including sealed breakout ends, UV-treated cables, and an armored hybrid cable—to withstand demanding weather conditions and ward off potential interference. Custom configurations are available to support base band unit and multiple remote radio head connections using industry standard connectors, alleviating extensive cable management requirements.

“Because these hybrid cable assemblies combine fiber and power in a single sheathing, it creates a more efficient install within the cell tower,” said Rob Wheeler, global product manager, Molex. “The ability to reduce the number of cable runs in the tower will creating cost benefits such as install/maintenance costs.”   

Compared to current plug-and-play cable solutions in the market that use multiple cables, Molex users can connect several remote radio units and power-to-signal distribution boxes with one assembly, maximizing tower real estate and freeing up space for additional equipment.
