Authorities from China’s high speed Shijiazhuang-to-Taiyuan railway issued a certificate of partnership excellence to Andrew Solutions™, the CommScope, Inc. division that is a global leader in wireless communication systems and products, for the company’s superior support of wireless communications in the Shi-Tai line.

In the certificate, the Shi-Tai authorities praised Andrew as “an outstanding supplier with integrity that observes high standards in quality and contractual spirit.” The certificate also stated that “the surrounding physical environments and conditions [along the Shi-Tai line] are complex and tough. Andrew has provided excellent service and met the technical requirements of our integrated project for communication, signal, electricity, and traction power supply.”

Andrew provided its RADIAX® radiating cables to support wireless communications in the Shi-Tai line, which has been operational since April 2009. Thanks to Andrew, passengers taking the Shi-Tai line are able to access quality wireless communication services, enjoying uninterrupted phone, text messaging and other applications even when traveling through the tunnels in the railway.

"It is our great honor to receive this award,” said Chinnee Tong, vice president of sales, China, Andrew Solutions. “Andrew has over 20 years of experience in designing, testing, installing, and managing complicated wireless signal distribution systems for metropolitan railways, tramways, and other large-sized construction projects worldwide. It has applied wireless solutions successfully in more than 30 subway projects including the ones in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Nanjing and Tianjin. We are most pleased to bring our expertise to the Shi-Tai line and make a contribution.”

The Shi-Tai line has a total length of almost 190 kilometers and reduces the travel time between Shijiazhuang and Taiyuan to about one hour. The line also connects with the Beijing-Shijiazhuang high speed line, allowing passengers to reach Beijing from Taiyuan in little more than two hours.

Andrew's RADIAX cables are manufactured entirely in its Suzhou, China plant, which the company announced expansion plans for in May 2009, and where Andrew has outdoor and indoor cable test lines that simulate tunnel conditions. The company’s local manufacturing and research and development facilities in China provide extensive in-country capabilities for product design and production, a key factor in development of world-class solutions and on-time deliveries to Chinese customers.
