Times Fiber Expands Cable Portfolio With PowerOptX Hybrid Cables For Fast, Simple Connectivity Of Remote Radio Heads

WALLINGFORD, Conn., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Times Fiber Communications, a business unit of Amphenol, today announced PowerOptX hybrid cables that combine optical and power connectivity in a single cable. Available in standard and custom configurations with high performance to support 4G wireless protocols, PowerOptX cables are significantly lighter than designs using corrugated metal shielding, allowing easier installation and less tower loading.

PowerOptX cables enable cell tower operators to lower costs while ensuring the performance needed for next-generation wireless. While standard configurations offer three or five power pairs and six or twelve single-mode fibers in a flame-retardant, sunlight-resistant PVC jacket, Times Fiber also collaborates with customers to create custom cables and assemblies with different conductor counts, cable types and materials, or shielding--delivering them with some of the fastest turn cycles in the industry.

Beyond cell towers, hybrid cables are also suited to industrial, transportation, and other telecom application requiring a single-cable solution for power and data.

"As the wireless industry looks to control costs and ensure the highest levels of reliable performance, end-to-end solutions from a single supplier simplify procurement and installation," says Josh Hirschey, senior vice president at Times Fiber. "PowerOptX cables are an important addition to a growing product line from Amphenol that includes RF, fiber, and power cable and connectors, antennas, protection products, and accessories to allow flexible connectivity from base station to RRHs and antennas."
