RF Jumper Cables - Superior performance up to 6GHz
Rosenberger SiteLink coaxial jumpers are designed using the many years of experience gained by Rosenberger engineers in this field and also utilize Rosenberger’s unique knowledge of designing and manufacturing world-leading rack and desktop PIM testing equipment.
Not only do Rosenberger SiteLink jumpers have the industry-best PIM levels -117 dBm / 160 dBc @ 2 x 20 W (typ. -120 dBm / -163 dBc @ 2 x 20 W) but these excellent levels are guaranteed for every assembly that leaves the Rosenberger production facility.

- More throughput
- Less dropped calls
- Supporting any technology
The benefits of reducing the unwanted levels of Passive Intermodulation (PIM) within base station transmission line systems have long been understood. With the development of new technologies and modulation techniques such as LTE and the increasing use of multi-band systems the negative effects of PIM within mobile wireless networks is now even more prevalent.
A leading cause of PIM is that of poorly designed or manufactured transmission line components such as antennas, combiners, TMA’s, surge arrestors and perhaps most importantly RF coaxial jumper cables. Whilst many, but not all, manufacturers of jumper cables are aware of the need to reduce PIM generation there is no common level of what is or is not an acceptable PIM level within this industry.
A comparison of six leading jumper brands shows that there can be as much as 10 to 15db difference in advertised minimum PIM levels. Furthermore there is prevalence for some manufacturers to use terms such as ‘typical PIM levels’ which might lead to the conclusion that not ‘every’ assembly is actually individually PIM tested at the point of manufacture.
Rosenberger SiteLink coaxial jumpers are designed using the many years of experience gained by Rosenberger engineers in this field and also utilizes Rosenberger’s unique knowledge of designing and manufacturing world-leading rack and desk top PIM testing equipment.
Not only do Rosenberger SiteLink jumpers have the industry-best PIM levels, -117 dBm / 160 dBc @ 2 x 20 W (typ. -120 dBm / -163 dBc @ 2 x 20 W), but these excellent levels are guaranteed for every assembly that leaves the Rosenberger production facility.
Factory-made and individually PIM and RL tested jumpers with test data available in a network is the best assurance for smoothless operation, long time reliability and return on investment.
