Tata Teleservices adds network efficiency by switching to Smoothwall RF feeder cable


CommScope announced that Tata
Teleservices has selected CommScope’s smoothwall RF feeder coaxial cable for
its new site roll-outs.

The smoothwall RF feeder coaxial
cable features closed microcell foam dielectric and foam-filled inner conductor.

The HELIAX FXL smoothwall cable
offers the following:

  • Faster and Easier Deployments: Lighter,
    stronger and flexible cable

  • Cost Savings: Less tower loading, lower freight costs
    and minimal maintenance

  • Superior Performance and Efficiency: Lower attenuation

  • Reliability and Consistency: Field proven, excellent weather
    resistance

Tata Teleservices will utilize the coaxial cable at the new rollouts of its base station sites in
India.


The
FXL smoothwall cable from CommScope,
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.


“Superior
performance and cost-efficiency, as compared to standard corrugated copper
cable, makes HELIAX 2.0 FXL smoothwall cable from CommScope a great choice for
operators and OEMs in India,” said Stan Catey, senior vice president and
general manager, Cable Products, CommScope.


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.


The
smoothwall cable recently won the Golden Award for Green Communication
Energy-Efficiency Technology in China.


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.


“CommScope’s
smoothwall cable will modernize our wireless communication systems,” said AG Rao, executive president,
Technology and Enterprise Business, Tata Teleservices.


In
response to the discontinuation of HELIAX VXL, CommScope has made significant
investments to localize FXL cable production at its manufacturing center in
Goa, India. Additional production facilities supporting FXL are strategically
located in North America and China.
