PowerShift? is the intelligent, plug-and-play dc power supply.
Are you ready for a PowerShift?
Not only are today’s high-performance, higher-wattage remote radio units (RRUs) consuming more power, operators are installing more of them to better support skyrocketing data traffic. These RRUs demand thicker, more expensive copper cables.
Avoid the LTE power squeeze
The wireless network experts at CommScope—and power experts at ABB—have partnered to create PowerShift?, the industry’s first intelligent, plug-and-play dc power supply. PowerShift is designed to optimize the transmission of electrical power by regulating voltage at the RRU or remote, eliminating the need for a tower-top converter. PowerShift also increases the amount of time your battery backup runs, allowing your RRUs to stay active up to 35 percent longer in case of a power outage.
Whether you’re adding or replacing RRUs, building new macro sites or deploying DAS, PowerShift tilts the power in your favor by helping you:
- Simplify installations and save CapEx
- Increase RRU uptime on battery backup
- Expand cable lengths and standardize cable sizes
The PowerShift family includes both High Density (one rack unit, able to handle 12 RRUs, best for DAS) and High Power (2KW output per RRU, optimized for 12 RRU sites) versions.
