Used a fax machine in a while?

Posted by Craig Culwell on June 13, 2017
We’re willing to bet you haven’t used a fax machine in a while. All innovations have their moment in the sun. But with 5G on the horizon, there will be other great things to take its place. First, the worlds of wireless and wireline need to converge. CommScope’s Craig Culwell shines a light on how you can hear more on future network connectivity.

Ready for Action: CommScope Wireless Cables Meet CPR Standards

Posted by Mike Schaefer on May 24, 2017
Mike Schaefer is happy to report in this blog post that CommScope’s HELIAX and CNT fire retardant cables are already compliant to the EU’s CPR standards for fire safety. This comes ahead of the July 1 deadline for properly marking cabling. See the cable list for more details.

How the U.S. Wireless Industry Could Save $5 Million

Posted by Chris Stockman on May 4, 2017
A small piece of metal could save the U.S. wireless industry up to $5 million. The metal is CommScope’s new SnapStak Plus cable hanger. The serious cost-savings come from the total amount of time saved during installation. To see how easy they are to use, check out this video blog by Chris Stockman.

Small Footprint, Big Advantages: 4.3-10 Connectors

Posted by Pedro Torres on August 11, 2016
The mobile industry has standardized a new RF connector commonly known as 4.3-10, which is set to supersede the existing connector types. 4.3-10 connectors have been developed to prevent performance issues and remove complexity in the installation of feeders, antennas, filters and tower mounted amplifiers. Pedro Torres explains more about these connectors in today’s blog post and a new white paper.

A PowerShift in the Wireless Industry

Posted by John Chamberlain on October 22, 2015
CommScope just announced a new power solution for wireless cell sites called PowerShift. One of the more unique advantages of PowerShift relates to how it can extend the uptime of RF battery back-up systems. CommScope estimates that PowerShift can lengthen RF battery uptime by up to 35 percent. John Chamberlain explains more about this feature in today’s blog post.

Modernizing Mobile Networks in Australia

Posted by Reece Baines on July 30, 2015
Data intensive applications such as video conferencing, streaming and rich media via mobile devices are putting pressure on wireless operators’ networks in Australia. There are many improvements in the RF path that can provide them with the better performance, higher reliability and lower total cost of ownership that they need to meet rising expectations on network performance. Reece Baines highlights a few of these network infrastructure solutions in today’s blog post.

Installing an LTE Cell Site

Posted by Mike Fabbri on July 13, 2015
The most common source of the performance-degrading interference called passive intermodulation (PIM) is poor installation. That’s what CommScope’s Site Solutions and Services team has discovered over the years while performing audits of existing LTE sites. Installation errors are often related to improper connections that create PIM-generating problems. See today’s blog post by Mike Fabbri for more information and a link to the LTE Best Practices ebook.

How Can You Power Cell Sites More Efficiently?

Posted by John Chamberlain on July 1, 2015
As in all technology evolutions, improvements can be made to make new architecture more cost-effective and efficient. The power cable presents a specific challenge to successful remote radio unit (RRU) deployment in today’s wireless networks. And the race is on to find more creative and efficient solutions for powering them. John Chamberlain explains more in today’s blog post.

Get a Jump on PIM

Posted by Mike Schaefer on June 10, 2015
Traditional static passive intermodulation (PIM) testing alone cannot predict how RF path components will react to environmental factors. Dynamic PIM is a more comprehensive measure of PIM that takes real-world conditions into account. The latest additions to CommScope’s PIM-limiting portfolio are SureFlex D-CLASS cable assemblies with certified dynamic PIM performance. Learn more about them in today’s blog post by Mike Schaefer.

What Do Biking and FTTA Cabling Have In Common?

Posted by Chris Stockman on June 3, 2015
Fiber to the Antenna (FTTA) is one of the most efficient ways to implement LTE. There are many choices, however, in equipment and installation practices that will influence capital expenditures and system performance. For an overview of the considerations, check out today’s blog post by Chris Stockman and download the LTE Best Practices ebook.
