Fri, 06/04/2010 - 8:00am


Two of Japan’s wireless operators have made the switch to HELIAX® 2.0 smoothwall cables, the feeder and jumper coaxial cable line solution offered by Andrew Solutions, the CommScope, Inc. division that is a global leader in wireless communications systems and products.

“Japan is known as one of the most demanding markets in the wireless industry with high expectations for advanced technology and superior quality,” said Akira Kawada, country manager and president, Andrew Solutions Japan. “Andrew has established a long, successful track record with almost all the Japanese operators, delivering superior products quickly. We are proud to bring the next generation of wireless cables to Japan.”

Andrew is providing its FXL smoothwall feeder cables and SFX smoothwall superflexible cable assemblies to the two Japanese operators in support of their 3G/4G networks. The company’s HELIAX 2.0 smoothwall cables deliver lower attenuation, higher crush strength, and reduced weight when compared to competitors’ copper cables. The lower and more stable raw material cost of aluminum translates into savings for any network, supporting all frequency bands with superb performance.

Andrew is also supplying cable accessories, base station antennas and RF splitters to one of the operators. Andrew bundled all the equipment into more easily and quickly deployable site kits based on the Japanese lunch box concept called “bento” boxes. “Of course the main dish of Andrew’s bento box is our broadband next generation HELIAX FXL and SFX smoothwall cable solutions,” said Kawada.

Andrew has been established in Japan for almost 30 years with the Andrew brand being recognized for superior quality, reliable delivery and outstanding service. Andrew delivers products in volume to almost all the Japanese operators and believes it is the only supplier in Japan capable of delivering such a wide variety of RF path solutions.

Andrew will display its next generation HELIAX 2.0 cable family along with CommScope’s comprehensive portfolio of connectivity solutions for the Asia-Pacific marketplace at CommunicAsia 2010, which runs June 15th to June 18th in Singapore.
