HUBER+SUHNER Introduces Network Densification Solutions for 5G

HUBER+SUHNER has unveiled its latest solutions for Centralized RAN (C-RAN) at the Mobile World Congress Americas being held in San Francisco from September 12-14. At the event, the company is focusing on the forthcoming network topology changes necessary to prepare for the continuously raising capacity increase and complexity in the future 5G networks.

Using centralized baseband units (BBUs) in C-RAN architecture, multiple remote radio heads can be connected from one place, reducing the need for decentralized infrastructure and therefore operational cost. As network landscapes change and mobile operators prepare for 5G, HUBER+SUHNER are unique in the fact that they cover all aspects of the network. This includes all aspects of an efficient and scalable fiber management in the central office, addressing fiber exhaust issues in the access network and reliable connectivity at the cell site. On top of that, the solution adds the ability for future remote reconfiguration to the optical layer of the network, so HUBER+SUHNER can support its customers at each stage of the network evolution.

At the show they are also showcasing the NEX10, marking its debut in the American market. The NEX10 is the new low PIM RF coaxial connector system for small cells that has been jointly developed by HUBER+SUHNER and two other European suppliers and is optimum for outdoor use under extreme weather conditions with excellent return loss and PIM stability.

Besides its well known macro and small cell cabling portfolio, HUBER+SUHNER is also showcasing its optical switching solutions for remote patching, protection switching and remote measurement of the optical network, as well as its CUBO converter which solves fiber exhaust challenges in the front or back haul network in a simple, robust and compact way.
