Alpha launches products for wireless carriers to simplify 3G and LTE transition

Telecom Lead America:
Alpha Technologies has launched two new products that enable wireless carriers
to simplify the transition to 3G and LTE networks.

Alpha Technologies said the products enable the continued
deployment of both 24V and 48V radios at cell sites without overhauling power

“For service providers with 24 volt networks, the need to
support both 24V and 48V networks simultaneously is inevitable. A major
objective is to avoid parallel power plants at the cell site, with each plant
supported by its own battery backup system,” said Mike Burkhalter, vice president
of US Telecom Sales at Alpha.

Leveraging Alpha’s switchmode DC-DC converter modules,
carriers can use the existing 24V plant and batteries to power old and new
generation radios. The new product supplies the 48V power for the new radios. It
also includes its own distribution system that connects directly to the new

The CXPS 24-48-i Converter System is designed to enable
wireless service providers to add new 48V powered LTE equipment, while still
using the existing 24V battery plant. The system is a complete integrated 24Vdc
to 48Vdc converter system that includes the Cordex CXCI controller along with
up to four 2kW converter modules. The system provides front access for DC
distribution and site controller connections, and provides 18 distribution

The CXPS-M 1200 offers dual 48V/24V capabilities. It
provides enough current to power both new and legacy wireless base stations at
the same time. The compact, front access design makes it easy to use and easy
to transition once the site converts fully to 48V operation.

Alpha Technologies builds on over 30 years of outdoor power
manufacturing experience to develop solutions that solve customers’ unique
powering challenges.
