HUBER+SUHNER have been awarded "best supplier" in the innovation category for its MASTERLINE Extreme Hybrid cabling system by a leading mobile communication equipment company. Urs Ryffel, COO of Fiber Optics Division, was presented with the award at the company's supplier event.
180 people from 130 companies attended the supplier days to listen to presentations on business opportunities and challenges that then joined the award ceremony.
Factors in winning the award
HUBER+SUHNER received the award for the innovation category because of its revolutionary MASTERLINE Extreme Hybrid cable system. It combines multiple optical fibers for data transfer and copper cables to supply power, in one system. With this cable HUBER+SUHNER has set milestones in the field of fiber to the antenna - the plug-and-play system is the most efficient and easiest-to-install product available on the market for connecting base stations with remote radio heads. It can be installed in half of the time of competitive hybrid solutions based on corrugated co-axial cable designs. However, not only is the installation cost reduced but also roll-out times are shortened with a given installation capacity and operating costs significantly cut. All these factors were decisive in winning the innovation award and are the main reasons for the popularity of HUBER+SUHNER’s MASTERLINE Extreme Hybrid cable system with mobile network providers and operators.
In excess of 65,000 kilometres of cables installed worldwide
For HUBER+SUHNER the award is in recognition of its innovation activities and a confirmation of the successful co-operation with this mobile communication equipment company. The award also underlines the position of HUBER+SUHNER as technology leader in the field of fiber-to-the-antenna installations. Mobile communication equipment suppliers in America, Australia and France, rely on cable systems from HUBER+SUHNER for remote radio installations. In excess of 65,000 kilometres of HUBER+SUHNER fiber- and hybrid-to-the-antenna cables have already been installed worldwide, providing reliable and future proofed cabling systems for macro cell sites as well as superior total cost of ownership for the operator.
To meet all market requirements in these different countries and to defend its leading position, HUBER+SUHNER is continually enhancing its solutions and broadening the application range. The MASTERLINE Extreme Hybrid cable system for example, is available in multiple different configurations. As well as further development of existing products, the company also completes its product offering with complementary products and variations, as for example the recently launched MASTERLINE Ultimate cable system. HUBER+SUHNER is committed to develop its products further to provide its customers with innovative solutions and leading edge technologies.
