With more and more people using cell phones, exponentially increasing traffic in mobile networks, operators and network infrastructure vendors face two critical challenges. First, they must attempt to improve network efficiency to transport as much data as possible in limited spectrum. Second, and related to the first challenge, they must improve network efficiency while justifying capital expenditure (CapEx) and operating expenditure (OpEx) investments. So, how do you meet these challenges?
The solution: 4.3-10 RF connectors. The mobile industry has standardized 4.3-10 RF connectors, a new type of RF connector that will supersede the existing 7-16 DIN and N connectors. 4.30-10 connectors were developed to address and prevent most of the performance issues inherent to 7-16 DIN connectors. Plus, they are designed to remove as much complexity as possible in the installation of RF equipment. Not only do they help you create a more efficient network, but they also save you installation time.
Plus, 4.3-10 connectors can save you space. 7-16 DIN connectors occupy a lot of space in RF units; their bulk, particularly in small cells, makes equipment evolution and future miniaturization difficult. Since 4.3-10 connectors are far more compact, they can improve port density in both macro and small cell RF radio products.
