Enabling Wireless Systems

Line density, lateral connector strain, cable radius & equipment airflow management enable the success of wireless systems. In the wireless support system many of the network edge, switching and core access elements are copper-based wireline technology. Examples include wiring bays in telephony central offices (CO), CATV headends and broadcast studios are substantially, all of which are substantially coaxial cable. This technology still carries significant advantages in cost, ease of use, high data rate/frequency signal clarity and bandwidth. Despite tremendous capacity available in fiber technology and ongoing attempts (such as xDSL) to utilize the vast installed-based of twisted pair copper, coax is still a favored and proven technology with low risk and extremely low line failure rates.
