By enabling fiber connectivity to be tested between optical baseband units (BBUs) and remote radio heads (RRHs), CPRI panels — considered essential for network densification to evolve from 4G to 5G and enable IoT and SON — allow cell operations and system performance engineers to ensure the best performance without having to disconnect the fiber-optic system or disrupt service. RFS’ CPRI panel enables easy RF-over-CPRI testing at the bottom of the tower, reducing the need for tower climbs, thus minimizing the maintenance cost and the overall operating expense for customers. The CPRI panel can be bundled with RFS’ fiber-optic jumpers (available in several length options), providing an end-to-end solution that includes Hybriflex fiber-to-the-antenna DC and F/O solutions. www.rfsworld.com Small Cell Solutions The Titan product line from Distributed Wireless Group offers a small cell solution delivery with maximum flexibility on both antenna and radio manufacturer integration.
