RFS CELLFLEX Lite proves excellent PIM-performance

Colombes (France) January 16, 2012 – Excellent PIM-performance is crucial when it comes to mobile communication: Passive intermodulation (PIM) plays a significant role for all frequency planners – and also for Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, and its products. While conducting two tests in Germany and Italy recently, the PIM-performance of RFS’ CELLFLEX Lite aluminum cable has proven to be excellent.

The news arrived from two sources at the same time: A CELLFLEX Lite installation set up 2007 in Germany has successfully passed the PIM test. This installation was set up using RFS CELLFLEX Lite cables for different frequencies: The type LCF78-50JL for GSM900 and LCF158-50JL for UMTS2100. A customer in Italy tested an even older RFS-installation, dating back to 2006. The result was the same as in Germany: The PIM-performance was even after a few operational years still excellent. Gerhard Wunder, Director of International Business Development Transmission Lines at RFS, concludes: “Thousands of sites currently operate with our Lite cables. Both tests, conducted on different locations by two different operators, show that our PIM performance still satisfies the requirements of our customers perfectly.”

Plus, RFS is constantly working on further optimizing the performance, offering a reduced total cost of ownership due to PIM aware connector and jumper technology. The range of OMNI-FIT premium connectors guarantees unparalleled PIM performance. One example out of many that shows: RFS focuses on the overall RF chain excellence – and offers premium performance exactly there where it matters.
