MASTERLINE Classic

MASTERLINE Classic

Multi-riser cable with distribution box


MASTERLINE Classic uses separate multi-fiber and multi-conductor copper riser cables that are connected to mast mounted FTTA/PTTA distribution boxes which are then linked to the RRHs with short jumper cables. Traditionally multi-riser cables with distribution boxes have been the preferred solution for multi-RRH installations, however with the increasing number of remote radios per site mast space limitations and wind loading have become critical issues to operators.
Moreover some operators can incur extra leasing costs for every box placed on the mast, thus distribution box based systems are gradually being superseded by box-less solutions like MASTERLINE Extreme (see  page 42). In general, the installation method with boxes is cost effective and offers installation flexibility but it does require handling and connecting of indoor LC connectors at the mast-top distribution box. Many operators want to avoid the risk of opening and maintaining mast-top boxes by non-trained or non-authorised persons.

MASTERLINE Extreme

Driven by a philosophy of providing high density RF connectivity, while significantly reducing cable footprints. HUBER+SUHNER’s single mode, simplex and duplex systems are both flexible and perfect for harsh environments. Flexibility is achieved by providing customers with a wide range of options when it comes to interconnectivity, while the scalability of the systems enables an unlimited RF connectivity density.

The use of HUBER+SUHNER’s renowned components, such as RADOX and Q-ODC-12, ensures that the system can be deployed in any environment and with a significantly smaller cable footprint.

The standard RFoF modules are available in 1, 6 and 12 ports and cover a wide frequency range of 1 MHz to 40 GHz. The systems are capable of covering distances of up to 100 km and are perfect for applications requiring secure, low loss, lightweight and high-density connectivity.

GPS-over-Fiber

GPS-over-Fiber

HUBER+SUHNER GPSoF modules are focused on distributing a single GPS signal into multiple receiver systems. This approach ensures that signal data, such as time synchronization into separate, yet connected, systems is always the same. Standard GPSoF systems include both single and multiport solutions; and accommodate both L1 and L2 bands.

In addition to the GPSoF modules, HUBER+SUHNER also provides a Time and Frequency Standard (TFS) module. This module uses 1PPS to ensure that time synchronization is still possible in the event of a loss of GPS signal. The pulse is synchronized to the average of the GPS signal. The module also provides a 10 MHz electrical output, which is used for reference signaling. The small form factor of the GPSoF modules ensures that the systems are ideal for both fixed and mobile applications, where space may be limited.

LAN-over-Fiber

LAN-over-Fiber

With the use of multimedia continuing to increase within the operations landscape  (from planning to de-briefing), our modules are focused on providing Gigabit connectivity within challenging environments.
 
The use of HUBER+SUHNER’s RADOX and Q-ODC-12 components ensure that the exposed portions of the system remain functional within harsh environments, while the interconnect within a mobile structure (shelter or vehicle) remains robust and functional within environments exposed to, for example, intense vibration.

The standard LANoF modules are available in 1, 6 and 12 ports and can be easily integrated into existing network infrastructures. The LANoF system is particularly well suited to applications that require "field LAN" capabilities for data synchronization, diagnostics, remote identification and software distribution.

Wires and cables

Providing cables that reliably transmit ever increasing volumes of data while meeting demaning market requirements is the greatest challenge for cable manufacturers. For this purpose, HUBER+SUHNER has included databus cables in its product range for different markets.

HUBER+SUHNER combines extensive expertise in data communication with electron-beam-cross-linked material technology. The databus cables developed in-house (pre-terminated on request) provide reliable solutions for use in high-temperature applications and harsh environmental conditions. The databuses fulfil the requirements of different markets due to their excellent mechanical and electrical characteristics.
