3M Tower Dome Terminals offer solutions for fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA)
cabling configurations commonly used in advanced 3G and LTE/4G networks,
including trunked fiber cables, power cables and hybrid cables. The terminals
are used at the cell site where fiber and power feeder cables connect to the
jumper cables leading to remote radio units (RRUs).

The 3M difference is in the design:

  * The plug-and-play External Cable Assembly Module (ECAM) system, exclusive
    to 3M, enables fast, craft-friendly installation and sealing. The system
    allows cables to be prepared for installation on the ground at the cell
    site and/or factory. On the tower, the ECAM plugs containing the cables
    simply snap into the terminal ports, so the tower hand spends less time in
    the air performing cumbersome tasks, such as sealing and strain-relieving
    cable ports.
  * The IP68-rated terminals (with integrated fixed O-ring) provide a highly
    reliable, weather-tight seal and reduce the chance of installation error,
    helping to protect network reliability.
  * A tool-less dome latching mechanism allows quick sealing and re-entry for
    easy changes and maintenance.
  * Designed to enhance performance and signal integrity, the terminals
    separately manage fiber and power cables and accommodate standard fiber
    bend radius specifications.
  * The terminal’s modular design allows the addition of optional surge
    protectors or power terminal blocks, enhancing system flexibility. The
    product family can accommodate up to 12 RRUs.
  * The terminal’s small, sturdy mounting bracket and low-profile design help
    reduce tower loading and further simplify installation.
