OptoMast™ Smart City takes over cabling for smart poles, 5G and IoT


In the smart city of the future, information is provided by the numerous services, and these services also adapt based on the information. It is becoming more and more critical that data connections are reliable. The new technology is based on the sensors and network connected devices that need both communication and power supply cabling. The new Smart City generation of the Orbis OptoMast™ product family is an easy-to-install and reliable cabling solution for smart poles, IoT applications and mobile network base stations.

Since 2007, Orbis OptoMast™ products have served as a cabling solution for tens of thousands of mobile network stations for data transmission and power supply needs. Detailed design of the OptoMast™ solution enables smooth, and cost-effective installation and reliable, robust cabling - even under extreme conditions. The supply chain can be flexibly adapted to the construction schedule.

Small size is a requirement in smart poles and 5G base stations

Orbis OptoMast Smart CityOne component of a future city is a smart pole, which integrates multiple functionalities, such as controllable LED lighting, display boards, wireless network access points, surveillance cameras or weather stations. OptoMast™ Smart City cabling can serve a variety of devices.

The smart pole application and the mast of a 5G base station both have limited space for cabling. In the new OptoMast™ product line, space saving has been achieved in two ways.

The space required for the connections is determined by the cable ports, bending radius, and connector sizes. First, the connection box was re-designed to be as small as possible. If fuses are required for the power supply, they are now located in a separate fuse box mounted on the bottom of the mast.

The second solution for space saving is a hybrid cable or a hybrid enclosure. In the hybrid cable, both the fiber optic and power supply are transmitted through the same cable jacket and they are separated only in the enclosure for connections. The hybrid cable can also be used without a box, for example in an IoT application. Alternatively, a hybrid solution can be constructed from separate communication and power cables that are connected in a common hybrid enclosure.

For more information on the new versions of the OptoMast™ Smart City generation, please turn to Orbis sales. We will continue our product development, for the development of new services and technologies will naturally affect the cabling solutions as well.

Orbis Oy participated at the SähköTeleValoAV trade fair in Jyväskylä 7-9. Feb 2018 with new 5G-compatible product line Orbis OptoMastTM. The product is 5G compatible and was attached to wooden telecom mast made by Ecotelligent.
