As a result of Multiple Input/Multiple Output an- tenna requirements for LTE, and the trend toward multiband multiservice antennas, RF connector density on the antenna is becoming problematic for older, bulkier weatherproofing solutions. Tapes and mastics, for in- stance, can be less reliable and diffi- cult to use in these congested areas. The 3M Slim Lock Closure is reusable, re-enterable and tool- less, making it a time-saving, cost- effective, easy-to-use solution for the wireless industry. It can be used at the RF connection points on both the antenna and remote radio unit in an FTTA installation. RF connections need to be protected so that mois- ture cannot intrude, which can lead to signal integrity issues. Air is displaced around protected interconnections using a highly compliant sealing gel technology, providing a robust sealing surface. This closure can be opened and re-used without disconnection of the network, thereby avoiding signal interruptions and additional replace- ment costs. Visit www.tessco.com/go/3M.
