CommScope, Inc. (NYSE: CTV), a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, announced today a $5,000 contribution to Southern Polytechnic University. The gift will fund a scholarship program in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) department in honor of alumni Ken Williams, Director of Engineering Technology for Cox Communications.

Williams, the recipient of the 2007 Polaris Award sponsored by CommScope, was recognized as an individual who displayed exceptional achievement and commitment to the development and/or deployment of Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial (HFC) networks for commercial services applications. Williams received the award during The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers' Conference on Emerging Technologies held January 23-25, 2007 in Houston, TX.. Subsequently, he has been recognized by many of his peers and in numerous cable industry trade publications.

Williams is a key contributor to Cox's corporate engineering standards, including a broadband architecture initiative called "EON" (Extensible Optical Network), which was put in place to help Cox expand the raw RF bandwidth of its HFC network and increase service and reliability.

“CommScope is particularly pleased to make this contribution to Southern Polytechnic in honor of Ken’s career achievements. This gift is an investment in the future of engineering technology, a discipline for which Ken has earned a reputation for being a strategic thinker and visionary leader. We need highly-trained people to keep broadband networks on the cutting-edge and we also need the next generation of engineers and technicians to design, build, and maintain high bandwidth platforms for video, voice and data services tomorrow,” said Jim Hughes, CommScope’s Executive Vice President, Broadband Sales and Marketing.
