JMA Wireless and HUBER+SUHNER Introduce Industry’s Most Compact and Economical Macro Cell Site Cabling Solution
Combined offering resolves voltage up conversion issue cost effectively
Liverpool, NY – January 8, 2019 - JMA Wireless, a global leader of wireless communications solutions, partnered with HUBER+SUHNER, a leading supplier in FO and RF connectivity for the global communication market, to provide the most economical hybrid power plus fiber Cell Site Cabling Solution (FttA+PttA) in the market.
By complementing a small size, modern design, hybrid cable system with a compact and highly innovative DC up-converter, this new offering helps to alleviate mobile operators’ capex and opex leasing issues.
Today carriers are deploying dual band, 4X4 MIMO (multiple input, multiple output), high powered remote radio heads (RRHs) at their macro sites. These radios require greater DC power consumption as compared to traditional low power radios. The current hybrid power/fiber cable infrastructure simply will not support these high power (HP) radios at distances over 200’ due to greater voltage drops.
The voltage drop challenge is alleviated with PowerBoost, an inline voltage up-converter solution from JMA Wireless. Combined with the HUBER+SUHNER newly released high density 12x24 hybrid power/fiber cable, carriers can now power up to 12 dual/single band remote radio heads with a single hybrid cable while maintaining distances of up to 600’.
“The industry’s smallest voltage up-converter, PowerBoost from JMA Wireless, pairs naturally with HUBER+SUHNER’s high-density hybrid cable offering,” said Shawn Chawgo, Vice President of Product Line Management – Transmission Systems at JMA Wireless. “This combination offers our customers the smallest and least expensive solution for their 4G and 5G high-power radio deployments.”
“For HUBER+SUHNER, the JMA Wireless DC power up-converter family with its modularity and high-density features, is a perfect complement to our modular MASTERLINE hybrid trunk cable portfolio,” said Patrik Schönenberger, Head of Business Unit Fiber Connectivity Outdoor at HUBER+SUHNER AG in Switzerland. “This smart combination finally enables us to offer our customers in mobile network operations site-specific fiber and power connectivity solutions exactly addressing particular power challenges of typical macro cell site enhancements related to the upcoming 5G network evolution.”
JMA Wireless’ PowerBoost significantly reduces expansion time, cabling costs and incremental tower loading by offering the lowest capital and operational investments needed, smallest footprint (one third smaller than competition), operational efficiency, a scalable system architecture, and lastly, power assurance.

“We are excited to partner with JMA Wireless on this new total powering solution,” stated Bill Burress, Sales Director, Fiber Optic Division, North America at HUBER+SUHNER. “Together we are making it easier for our customers to procure all of their macro powering infrastructure from a single supplier.”
The HD 12×24 Low Inductance Hybrid cable, the newest addition to HUBER+SUHNER’s MASTERLINE Classic Hybrid cable portfolio, offers optimization for dual-band high powered radios and 12-OVP installations. The outstanding benefits include extremely attractive CAPEX and OPEX savings, plus extra potential of re-negotiating tower leases, simple architecture offering high flexibility ideal for new build as well as side modifications, light weight, low wind load, and a superior grounding solution.
As experienced long-term quality partner in the global FttA customer project market, HUBER+SUHNER, is complementing these features by offering its turnkey services covering technical and sales support at market level, free training programs for all contractors, and a 10-year warranty.
