5G Small Cell Cables, Interconnects and Accessories
5G network performance will be more dependent on all aspects of interconnect quality and durability than current technologies. Future communications, IoT, “Big Data” transmission, autonomous vehicles and automated industrial processes will be much more demanding than current connected networks, making 5G interconnect choices more critical than ever.
CDM Electronics is a leading distributor of premium interconnect and cable solutions for industrial and commercial small cell 5G applications, from prototype-level development programs to mass implementation. CDM can also provide custom power, communications, and data transmission cable assembly solutions for 5G infrastructure, along with box builds to support operations and signal requirements.

SilverLine® Test Cables are cost effective, durable and high performance, designed for use in a broad range of test and interconnect applications. Clarity™ Series Cables offer a broad frequency response and ergonomic design for 5G development and high volume production testing applications.
Lightning and Surge Protection
The Times-Protect® series of protectors provide highly effective protection to 5G equipment and operational facilities against lightning strikes and subsequent power surges. These unique surge protection devices address communications applications throughout the entire useful RF frequency range from DC with capability up to and including 6 GHz. Times-Protect products are in stock for your immediate protection.
Weather Sealing Accessories
For jumpers that will be exposed to the elements or placed in non-weather tight enclosures, it’s important that the entire connector surface be protected. Times Microwave Cold Shrink Boots are made of UV resistant silicone and offer a consistent, reliable weather sealing option that is waterproof rated to IP68 standard. For onsite jumper assembly, Times Microwave reusable, UV resistant silicone WPB Boots provide an IP-68 seal and one-step installation.
