Harsh environment cable systems

HUBER+SUHNER is the global leader for remote radio installation solutions. We have a comprehensive offering of FTTA (fiber-to the-antenna), PTTA (power-to-the-antenna) and HTTA (hybrid-to-the-antenna) products, which are tailored to the customer’s needs. We advise operators about which installation methods are available and what their advantages are. We are experts on how to make savings on installation costs and how expensive follow-up costs can be saved. HUBER+SUHNER implements future-proof passive cable network infrastructures, which are compatible with all system vendor products and endure the future generations of active equipment.

MASTERLINE Ultimate Small Cell

MASTERLINE Ultimate Small Cell

MASTERLINE Ultimate Small Cell (MLU SC) is the most innovative cabling system developed by HUBER+SUHNER to date. MLU SC is a factory-sealed, compact, modular, pre-connectorised, rugged, "plug & play" fiber optic installation solution system for installing Small Cells in various scenarios.

It is designed to support stand-alone installations of 1 to 4 radios per node or as a daisy chain solution of 1 to 3 radios per node or demarcation point.

MLU SC also offers the ability to integrate passive WDM modules into its compact footprint allowing to install multiple radios where fiber exhaustion or limited fiber backhaul opportunities exist. Input and daisy chain ports can be connectorised with Q-ODCs (2 to 24 fibers). Thus, the system can be moved easily if network equipment needs to be relocated. Radio output ports are all Q-ODC-2 for easy-to-install OEM specific fiber optic jumpers. Without any doubt – MLU SC is a true vendor agnostic, multi-carrier Small Cell installation solution.

Discrete fiber optic feeders

Discrete fiber optic feeders

The solution with discrete fiber and power cables supports every type of cell site installation, whether the remote radios are co-located (mast-top installation) or distributed on rooftops of buildings. HUBER+SUHNER has a leading role in the design and manufacturing of harsh environment connectors (e.g. ODC, FullAXS, Q-ODC or Q-XCO) and cable assemblies for remote radio systems. The installation method with discrete cables is the default solution of mobile system vendors. HUBER+SUHNER is an approved and qualified cable assembly supplier for the majority of the tier 1 and tier 2 system vendors.

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 (MLE)

MASTERLINE Extreme (MLE)

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 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.
