Future-oriented. Compatible. Reliable.
The coming 5G mobile networks will transmit an unprecedented amount of data. High-definition video, virtual reality, Internet of Things and autonomous driving will generate data volumes that cannot be handled by conventional technologies. At the same time, the demands on future mobile networks and the products used are becoming ever higher in terms of performance, reliability and size.
To ensure that these can be met – today and in the future – Telegärtner offers a broad product portfolio of compact, high-performance and robust 5G-capable products that work reliably under extreme conditions. These include SIMFix® connectors, adapters, jumper cables, surge suppressors, passive DAS components, indoor antennas and FTTA cables.
Telegärtner's Mobile Communications Solutions
Mobility has become an integral part of our life, and mobile communication is a must in today's world. The networks, on which all of this is based, have to be robust, reliable and economical. The reliability of mobile communication depends heavily on the antenna system that has to guarantee a dependable transmission of speech and data, even under adverse conditions. The large data requirements needed for 5G applications require the best products from trustworthy partners. For over 75 years Telegärtner has been developing, manufacturing and extensively testing product solutions for mobile communications in its cutting-edge RF laboratory.
Network Coverage in Buildings
Coverage is critical when it comes to mobile networks. This goes for all types of architecture, from macrocells to microcells and from small cells to picocells. As the majority of wireless communication takes place inside buildings, guaranteeing transmission even in large buildings such as shopping centres and office complexes is a particular challenge, especially with the added demands of 5G. For this purpose, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of high-performance and reliable transmission components as well as intelligent cabling solutions for e.g. Distributed Antenna Systems, Small Cells or WLAN.
Telegärtner jumper cables have been tested under the toughest conditions and the excellent transmission behavior has been confirmed by the independent institute TILAB. The broad portfolio in IP67 and IP68 includes all common mobile communication mating faces such as the Cell-IQ family (4.3-10, 2.2-5 and 1.5-3.5) as well as 7-16, NEX10 and N. This makes our jumper cables ideally suited for all mobile communications generations, including 5G applications.
The RF connectors in the SIMFix® series are robust, field-mount connectors for use in high performance transmitter applications. These connectors are waterproof and designed for external use. Furthermore, their design ensures excellent technical performance, especially when it comes to return loss and intermodulation. The SIMFix® portfolio includes all common mobile communication mating faces. They are typically designed for frequencies from DC to 6 GHz as well as for all common corrugated cables and are therefore suitable for 5G networks, among others. The new SIMFix LP offers an additional level of low, stable PIM performance for ½” cables even under stress. This extra assuredness of stability means this connector is perfect for the demands of a 5G network.
In order to be able to react flexibly to the introduction of new connector series, Telegärtner offers a wide range of intra- and inter-series adapters of all common mobile radio mating faces. This means that new and old components can be easily combined in a transmission line with different mating faces. For example, new 5G-capable RRUs or antennas with 2.2-5 connectors can replace the old components without necessarily having to replace the old 7-16 jumper cables, for example.
We offer a wide range of surge suppressors to protect electronic devices. Built into coaxial transmission lines, they suppress large electrical surges much like the ones that can be generated by lightning strikes in the immediate vicinity. Telegärtner has developed a new G38 series with gas discharge tube (GDT) especially for 5G applications. They are characterized by very good values in return loss up to 3.8 GHz.
Telegärtner offers passive DAS components such as Power Splitters, Couplers or Tappers to support its customers with suitable solutions. A broad range of coaxial RF components is available to cover the need for such products and to meet the heterogeneous requirements of each site. Due to the tendency of higher requirements regarding PIM levels, Telegärtner only offers low-PIM components (≤ -161 dBc) in the standard portfolio. Furthermore, future-proof components for frequencies up to 3.8 GHz are available for 5G applications.
In addition to the wide range of passive DAS components, Telegärtner also offers a diverse collection of indoor DAS antennas to round off the DAS portfolio. In addition to standard antennas for 4G/LTE, it also includes solutions for 5G applications up to 4 GHz in various designs: MIMO and SISO, wall and ceiling antennas as well as different polarizations and frequency ranges.
For long transmission distances, corrugated cables with a coaxial design are often used due to their low attenuation. The Telegärtner range extends from 1/2" Superflex through 1/2" to 7/8" and matches the selection of the many SIMFix® connector variants that are commonly connected to such cables. Just like the SIMFix® connectors, the cables are also suitable for 5G sites
Permanent availability any time, anywhere requires increasingly large data transfer rates. So it’s only logical to connect wireless antenna with fiber optic cables for improved data transmission and lower energy consumption. Multi-fiber solutions make it possible to connect multiple remote radio heads (RRH) to the base station via a single fiber optic cable, making them suitable for future 5G applications.
With more antennas per base station, the number of cables also increases. Hybrid cables transmit both power and data in one, thus minimizing the amount of cable and helping to optimize costs. Depending on the project and customer requirements, Telegärtner offers the right solution in terms of energy transmission, number of fibers and type. The efficient nature of hybrid cables are the basis for future growth, as well as 5G.
Mobile Communication OEM Solutions
Ever-increasing amounts of data have made further developments of global mobile networks essential. Above all, the development of 5G – the next generation of mobile communications – is creating new and more diverse tasks for the mobile communications industry. Telegärtner has developed the Cell IQ family to easily meet these challenge – today and in the future. This family is comprised of three products: the field-proven 4.3-10 series standard, the compact and robust 2.2-5 series solution and the 1.5-3.5 series which already helps you take the next step into the future of connection technology. These products cover the complete spectrum of MCO requirements and deliver maximum power in any size.
The portfolio is rounded off by the Nex10 connector series, which is particularly suitable for small cell applications due to its compact size.
Portfolio Overview Cell IQ and NEX10®
The Industry Standard
Due to their compact design these connectors do justice to the miniaturisation of mobile radio network components and fulfill the specifications for 5G applications.
Despite their size, compared to the traditional 7-16 series, the connectors guarantee excellent return loss and passive intermodulation performance (PIM) levels. In addition, the new connector series is very variable, since one universal cable jack is suitable for mating with three different cable plug designs.
Highest RF-Power in Class
The 2.2-5 series has adopted the successful concept of 4.3-10 and reduced the size accordingly. While the 4.3-10 typically require the same installation space as the classic N-connector, the 2.2-5 are satisfied with the standard installation dimensions of the TNC series.
Despite the significant reduction in dimensions and weight, optimal for 5G applications, the Series 2.2-5 has comparable electrical and thermoclimatic characteristics to the Series 4.3-10, and can be used both indoors and outdoors with corrugated sheathed cables up to the common 1/2” types.
Best Size-Power-Ratio in the Market
The 1.5-3.5 series enables a robust and PIM stable design in the smallest space. The space requirements for a typical 4 hole flange jack are only either 15 × 9.7 mm or 12.7 × 12.7 mm. Therefore the 1.5-3.5, based on the SMA form factor, requires around 47% less space than the 2.2-5 series and 75 % less space than the 4.3-10 series.
Hand in hand with the size and material reduction, there is also a cost and weight reduction, meaning this series is ideal for 5G small cell applications. Despite the small size, low loss cables up to 1/4” can be used.
The Mobile Radio Connector
The NEX10®* series completes Telegärtner's portfolio of mobile radio connectors. The cost-effective connector is particularly suitable for 5G mobile radio applications with permanent connections and applications with unproblematic climatic conditions.
In addition to connectors for cables and devices, Telegärtner offers a broad range of jumper cables that are manufactured in Europe.
