RFS Introduces Patented 5G Radiating Cables for In-Tunnel Deployments

Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) has released new radiating cables for delivering 5G connectivity in tunnels. The latest patented Radiaflex cable supports all mission critical and commercial wireless services, working in all 3GPP bands up to 3.8 GHz.

Using RFS’s unique mode suppression technology the ultra-broadband cable works with no stop-bands to support current and future frequency needs, protecting customer investment from spectrum re-banding and pre-empting new generation requirements for years to come. The cable is technology agnostic, giving complete flexibility to customers, supporting mixed configurations and multi-operator or shared infrastructure deployments.

This versatile 5G ready cable is specifically designed to meet the challenges of MIMO deployments. Using a combination of horizontally polarized radiating cable and vertically polarized radiating cable, RFS enables maximum capacity and throughput of fifth generation wireless networks, meeting the commercial requirements of customer deployments.

RFS has a long history of providing high-tech in-tunnel solutions; working on projects which include, EuroTunnel, St Petersburg metro and the Follo Line in Norway, which set the world record for in-tunnel download speeds in 2018. The extension of the Radiaflex family of products further demonstrates RFS’ commitment to provide worldwide customers leading edge 5G solutions in challenging environments. 

Not only does the new RFS equipment provide best in class RF performance, the cables are manufactured to meet the latest fire safety standards, as increased regulation becomes a considerable concern for those deploying communications infrastructure.
