RF Industries recently announced that its subsidiary, Cables Unlimited (NASDAQ:CU), has received $1.4 million dollars in orders for its newly designed OptiFlex™ Hybrid Custom Fiber Optic & DC Power Cabling solution. The cabling units will be shipped to a contract installer and major RRU manufacturer for a tier-one United States wireless carrier. CU expects to deliver the majority of the contract in the current fiscal year.
RF Industries' CEO, Howard Hill, remarked, "Working closely with the RRU manufacturer and the tier one carrier, CU's product development team designed OptiFlex Hybrid Cables to be an advanced, lower cost, lighter 'plug and connect' product for building and upgrading thousands of wireless carrier sites to handle the high-speed, wide bandwidth requirements of 4G networks. We are excited about the prospects for OptiFlex, which has been on the market for only a few months, and believe this product is an excellent example of RFI's customer-centric perspective, the synergies inherent in our acquisition of CU and our potential for growth."
OptiFlex™ Hybrid Cable solutions are highly flexible, pre-terminated cables comprised of multiple fiber optic and power cables in a single jacket. The custom designed light cable reduces tower loads and is the perfect solution for 4G, WiMAX, and 4G LTE tower upgrades and installations up to and exceeding 550 feet, twice the length of competing products. CU touts the solution's low minimum order and fast turnaround as a cost-competitive transition for OEM's, contract installers, and carriers looking to quickly and easily upgrade their products.
The OptiFlexTM Hybrid Custom Fiber Optic & DC Power Cabling solution is immediately available through TESSCO Technologies. For more information on OptiFlex™ Cabling solutions, contact Cables Unlimited or TESSCO.
