MASTERLINE Classic (MLC)

MASTERLINE Classic (MLC)

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can incur extra leasing costs for every box placed on the mast, thus distribution box based systems are gradually being superseded by box-less solutions like MASTERLINE Extreme (see  page 42).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

MASTERLINE Extreme

Multi-riser cable with compact divider

MASTERLINE Extreme with Q-ODC-2 connectors is an efficient solution in terms of ease of installation, cost and required space on the mast. The compact divider minimises the wind-load and can be fed through small holes (80 mm diameter). The ruggedised push-pull connector Q-ODC allows the installer to connect the RRH jumper cables with a single "click", making it a genuine "plug & play" cabling system. MLE with Q-ODC is available to support up to 12 remote radios.
MASTERLINE Extreme with one Q-ODC-12 connector allows the installer to connect 6 RRH jumper cables with a single "click" and can even be installed through holes with a diameter of 20 mm. The Q-ODC-12 connector has the highest fiber density, based on the proven QN push-pull mating system and can connect 12 fibers in one mating step.
MASTERLINE Extreme is the preferred choice of network installers who require trouble free, reliable and efficient field deployments. HUBER+SUHNER`s MASTERLINE Extreme product family is unique in the market and provides the best value for money.

MASTERLINE Extreme Hybrid (MLEH)

MASTERLINE Extreme Hybrid (MLEH)

Hybrid-riser cable with compact divider


HUBER+SUHNER’s hybrid cabling system is the most efficient and easiest to install product available on the market. Mobile operators on four continents verified that MASTERLINE Extreme Hybrid can be installed in half of the time of competitive hybrid solutions based on corrugated coax cable designs. The factory-terminated "plug & play" system in combination with a highly flexible and easy-to-route cable makes the HUBER+SUHNER solution the hybrid cable of choice for operators, system vendors and installers alike.
The pre-terminated hybrid cable assembly minimises the quantity of cables running up the mast. The compact divider splits the optical fiber and DC power cable into individual ruggedised outdoor cables which are linked to the RRHs – either directly or via extension jumpers without the need for bulky mast mount distribution boxes. The RRH jumpers allow an adaptation to different RRH interfaces and therefore make the solution independent from the system vendor’s hardware.

MASTERLINE Ultimate (MLU)

MASTERLINE Ultimate (MLU)

Multi-riser cable with compact connector head

MASTERLINE Ultimate is HUBER+SUHNER’s most innovative fiber optic cabling system for remote radio installations. The pre-connectorised factory-sealed fiber optic systems support up to 12 RRHs and connect the remote radios with easy-to-install Q-ODC fiber optic jumpers.

The robust connector head with an integrated pulling eye allows easy cable lifting without the need for hoisting grips. The encapsulated connector head can be directly attached to the mast with a single "click" at a pre-mounted adaptor plate. These unique features make MASTERLINE Ultimate the best-in-class product in terms of ease of mast-top installation, installation robustness and efficiency.
