4.3-10 RF connectors are designed to meet the extreme demands of 4G and 5G antenna equipment.
With the introduction of very high order modulation schemes like 256QAM, wide aggregated bandwidths (up to 500 MHz of aggregated carriers in EN-DC), and extended operating bands up to 39 GHz, traditional N connectors simply don't meet the grade.
4.3-10 Male connectors allow the connection of external 5G antennas by use of coaxial cables - although suitable for FR1 only.
This model of 4.3-10 connector is weatherproof when installed to a IP65 female connector.
While the conventional style of external antennas previously used for 3G and 4G aren't completely suitable for 5G, a significant increase in performance is still possible. 4.3-10 "Mini-DIN" connectors meet the required operating parameters for FR1-NR.
It should of course be noted that using braided cables like L-400 as a feeder is no longer permitted on most mobile networks.
L-400, sometimes referred to as LMR-400, is a low loss coaxial cable with a large 10.16 mm outer diameter. Supporting frequencies beyond 6 GHz it's a popular choice for entry- to intermediate-level wireless communications systems.
This cable type is preferred over its smaller diameter compatriots when connection over the upper 4G LTE bands is sought, such as over B3 (1800 MHz), and B7 (2600 MHz).
