Being responsive to your customer’s needs is an important
part of any business model. Listening to their concerns, and acting upon them,
is a sign of a good partnership. Our customers told us that the NEX10 connector
was their preferred choice for outdoor
small cell sites, so we have added that to our portfolio of LSF
The LSF jumper is designed to be used in outdoor small cell
sites. In that phrase, “outdoor small cell sites”, the key word is “small”.
These sites are not intended to be macro sites, with six-foot tall antennas
that you have to bend your neck backwards to see high up at the top of towers.
These are “small” sites, which are lower to the ground, higher in
concentration, and usually designed to be as inconspicuous as possible. These
are the ones that will be necessary to be installed in high numbers to take
advantage of the upcoming 5G
CLICK TO TWEET: CommScope's Jeff Epstein explains how LSF2 is the only 3/8” jumper with the NEX10 connector, providing both compact size and high performance, enabling even smaller connections for small cell sites.
How do networks design these small cell sites? Simply put,
they use smaller parts, including smaller antennas, smaller combiners, and
smaller, thinner cables. The challenge with the latter is combining small size
with high performance. The LSF jumper, a three-eighths inch diameter cable with
the characteristics of a larger, one-half inch cable, was specifically designed
for small cell sites. The LSF2 is now the only 3/8” jumper with the NEX10
connector, providing both compact size and high performance, enabling even
smaller connections for small cell sites.
The NEX10 connector has a smaller diameter than the previous
most commonly used connector, the 4.3-10, and is fast becoming the connector of
choice for small cell installations.
