Idea Cellular selects CommScope to shift to Smoothwall RF feeder
cable

 

 

Idea Cellular, India’s
third largest wireless operator, announced that it selected CommScope’s
smoothwall RF feeder coaxial cable for replacing most use of traditional
corrugated copper cabling in its network. 

 

Idea will utilize the HELIAX
FXL smoothwall cable in their base station sites in India.  The FXL
smoothwall cable, already installed in more than 100,000 sites throughout India
and in use in nations around the world, is delivering a new level of benefits
in wireless network performance and reliability compared to its corrugated
copper predecessor HELIAX VXL.

 

HELIAX 2.0 FXL smoothwall
cable from CommScope is a great choice for operators and OEMs in India because
of its superior performance and cost efficiency as compared to standard
corrugated copper cable,” said Stan Catey, senior vice president and general
manager, Cable Products, CommScope .


The smoothwall cable is built to ensure the
operator receives a consistent quality connection, plus it offers a significant
immediate cost savings over corrugated copper cable,” Catey added.


HELIAX FXL is lighter,
stronger and flexible that suitable for Faster
and Easier Deployments, it helps to reduce cost by low
tower
loading, lower freight costs and minimal maintenance.

This
coaxial cable’s lower attenuation, helping
data move faster and more efficiently across networks and it also has excellent
weather resistance.

Competition for subscribers
is intense in the rapidly expanding Indian wireless marketplace, raising the
stakes for operators as they balance the need for the highest performance in
their networks while keeping costs low.

Compared with traditional
all-copper cables, HELIAX FXL is more energy-efficient, durable and has greater
flexibility. In addition, it requires less electric power and fuel to
manufacture and transport. And, with its aluminum outer conductor, it is less
prone to the theft issues that have been affecting network components made
entirely from copper.

 

 

With more than 100 million
feet already deployed worldwide, HELIAX FXL cable is paving the way for an
eco-friendly communications infrastructure in India and around the world.


Throughout our
relationship, CommScope has always produced quality, durable cables that help
us reach out to our customers with the latest and most innovative technology,”
said Anil Tandan, chief technology officer, Idea Cellular .


Deploying
HELIAX FXL smoothwall cable enables us to evolve our wireless networks while
remaining conscious of its energy footprint,”
Tandan added.
