RFS Simplifies Cellular Network Installations with Factory-Assembled Tower Top Component Solutions


Hanover (Germany), October 2014. Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, today announced the availability of factory-made assemblies. The complete SiteExpress™ system is assembled by RFS technicians in a controlled environment, tested to ensure it meets all operating requirements, and shipped to the site ready to be hoisted and installed at the top of a tower. Tailored to meet specific customer deployment needs, SiteExpress™ supports multiple technologies – including LTE. It offers the most effective and efficient way of reducing on-site base station installation efforts and costs in order to reduce deployment time and improve quality.

SiteExpress™ solutions use market-leading, field-tested components, and are built to customer requirements at RFS’ state-of-the-art factories, including a new facility in Shanghai specifically established to accommodate the demand for RFS’ factory-assembled offerings. It can support simple or complex projects with multiple components from RFS product lines, RAN vendors, or even third party infrastructure providers. SiteExpress™ units can be individually equipped with multi-band antennas and all required cabling and site optimization products as needed– such as remote radio units (RRUs), RF jumpers, fiber and DC jumpers, distribution boxes, filters/combiners, weather proofing and surge protection – to meet customer specifications. SiteExpress™ solutions are ideally-suited for use with HYBRIFLEX™ hybrid cabling solution, which combines optical fiber and DC power RRHs in a single, highly flexible, lightweight aluminum corrugated cable.

“Tower technicians face many challenges in the field with ever increasing complexity and crowding of the sites, which can lead to costly mistakes and delays,” said Teppo Lukkarila, product line manager, RFS. SiteExpress™ is engineered for fast and reliable deployments, allowing our customers to save time and money by moving installation steps away from the tower and in to a controlled factory environment.

Seven hundred SiteExpress™ units have already been delivered to customer sites globally. A leading international communication company is successfully using the product in a nationwide 3G network in South East Asia. Typical benefits include:

  • Reduced site installation time
  • Improved quality in workmanship and site performance due to factory made connections and test in final configuration (RF and Fiber)
  • Improved performance due to reduced jumper losses
  • Consistency of installation time and planning with less variables
  • Improved safety for installers
  • Simplified configuration management in inventory and field
  • Easy planning for future upgrades
