Loeffingen, April 4, 2022 – RFS, Radio Frequency Systems GmbH, a leading worldwide provider of innovative wireless and broadcast infrastructure products and solutions, has partnered with IMS Connector Systems GmbH, Loeffingen, working closely to provide complete jumper cable solutions to RFS Mobile Network Operators and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers across Europe.
RFS will supply its industry leading CELLFLEX cable with IMS CS providing the jumper cable assemblies between the Antenna and the Remote Radio Unit (RRU) with production scheduled to begin April 2022. The IMS CS Team has demonstrated the ability to quickly tailor the production line to meet the needs of RFS end customers and is the reason IMS CS has been selected as supplier for this project. IMS CS offers the small sized jumpers for both 3/8” and 1/4” corrugated super flexible cables with competitive lead times, minimizing the lead time for RFS end users. The jumpers are tailor-made according to customer needs such as straight or right-angled versions, such as 4.3-10 or NEX10 and in various lengths.
“The collaboration between IMS CS and RFS enables us to further strengthen our market position in that domain. With this addition we will offer our customers a complete portfolio of European manufactured jumpers, to work with RFS cables made in Germany. RFS will be able to offer these small size jumpers with the same short lead time that our customers expect from our Hannover made portfolio.” Says Andreas Bergmeister, Global Product Line Manager Transmission Line Products at RFS.
“Due to the transition from 4.3-10 series to NEX10, we are seeing growing demand especially on the NEX10 connector series. These connectors offer space saving, miniaturized interconnection along with excellent passive intermodulation (PIM) and a superior RF performance up to 20 GHz, and watertightness up to IP68 classification. We are pleased to be offering our state-of-the-art solution with RFS and playing a key role in delivering the infrastructure to underpin 5G networks.” Says Felix Stoerr, Market Segment Leader Communication at IMS Connector Systems.
