RFS to showcase RF innovations designed for operators’ business needs at AfricaCom 2012

Colombes, (France), October 12, 2012 – At AfricaCom 2012, to be held November 13-15 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in South Africa, Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, will present RF innovations that help African operators address key challenges: saving time and money, reducing cable theft, evolving to 4G LTE and taking coverage indoors.

“RFS is known globally as a company that designs and develops premium RF products and solutions,” says Rémi Deniel, RFS Sales Director for Africa. “Now, as we expand our relationships with African operators and our African partners, we want them to see first-hand how our technology advances directly target the business and technical challenges they face. We also look forward to explaining to them how we tailor our global experience and expertise to their local needs.”

Visitors to the RFS booth at AfricaCom will have the opportunity to learn more about:

•    HYBRIFLEX™, the all-in-one fiber and power cable that cuts remote radio head (RRH) installation time in half. Featuring a rugged, weather-resistant and compact design, HYBRIFLEX also reduces tower loading and space requirements. This revolutionary cable has been successfully trialed by operators in South Africa and around the world.    

•    Multi-band base station antennas that enable flexible evolution to 4G LTE with no compromises in electrical performance. Offering premium RF performance, ultra-broadband support, low wind load and low weight, these robust antennas bring versatile coverage and capacity to existing or new sites.

•    CELLFLEX® Lite, the lightweight and robust corrugated aluminum cable that discourages cable theft. Featuring a “Metallic Lite” cable jacket, CELLFLEX Lite cables reduce the service disruptions caused by theft to lower total cost of ownership. They offer advanced electrical performance and are ideal for GSM, UMTS, CDMA, PDC, WiMAX and LTE networks.

•    RADIAFLEX®, the world-leading “leaky feeder” cable solution that delivers the performance needed for smooth transition to 4G LTE indoors. A key component in distributed antenna systems in buildings, tunnels and mines, RADIAFLEX supports the broadest indoor bandwidth in its class. RADIAFLEX has been successfully deployed in some of the most challenging confined spaces in the world.   

•    CompactLine® EASY, the compact, ultra-high performance microwave antennas that lower total cost of ownership. Featuring high mechanical stability and wind resistance, CompactLine EASY antennas support integrated radios to reduce costs, installation complexity and time.

All of the RFS products featured at AfricaCom 2012 are components in end-to-end RF solutions and are supported with a full suite of services.
