CommScope Enterprise Solutions, a division of CommScope, Inc. (NYSE:CTV), today announced its partnership with iconnect Technologies, a leader in the field of connected real estate structured cabling solutions, to help make ”Langtree at the Lake” in Mooresville, N.C., one of the first truly connected communities of its kind.

iconnect partnered with CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, to create a common network infrastructure that will handle virtually every aspect of the community’s technical operations, both commercially and residentially. Nestled on the shores of Lake Norman, the 125-acre mixed-use development will boast luxury condominiums, health clubs and restaurant; while the communications network will enable residents to shop for groceries online, rent boats via the Internet, listen to satellite music and access IP telephones and television.

“Langtree at the Lake will be a premier rural community with enhanced technology features that most development residents can only dream about,” said Brad Howard, chief operating officer, The Langtree Group. “We brought in CommScope and iconnect to help make those dreams become reality.

“Our main goal when planning the development was to help create a live-work-play experience for the residents that allowed them to broaden their idea of what a community should be. The joint contribution from iconnect and CommScope will create a single network infrastructure that I believe will complement the fine-living experience – exceeding all of our expectations.”

CommScope – headquartered in Hickory, N.C. – was selected for its familiarity with the area, knowledge of the industry and available resources. Although the companies are early in the project’s design phase, CommScope intends to utilize its Uniprise® mixed-use offerings to best address the unique and diverse objectives of each business, neighborhood residence or leisure club. In addition, CommScope’s integrated copper and fiber solutions will be employed in order to meet all network requirements, while balancing cost and performance.

“If you look at the entire CommScope portfolio, you’ll see that the services and products we provide create a reliable network infrastructure for a mixed-use community,” said Mark Peterson, senior vice president, global marketing, Enterprise, CommScope. “The major benefit that CommScope brings to the table with Uniprise is a wide range of physical layer solutions with a single point of contact. From cabling conduit to any one of our cabling solutions to connectors, we provide a complete solution so that the developers won’t need multiple vendors to create a successful network.”

With the completion of Langtree at the Lake set for 2014, developers are accounting for the reliable network to pave the way for lavish amenities not considered in the typical rural community.

“We are excited to be involved in the revolution of connected real estate technology with Langtree at the Lake,” said iconnect President Shohn Petty. “By using our vast experience to implement common physical layer infrastructure solutions, we are helping the developer save money through elimination of disparate physical layer network infrastructures,” he said. “At Langtree at the Lake, residents and commercial tenants will experience the power of integrated technologies as well as the efficiencies and economies of scale that result from an engineered Intelligent Building Infrastructure Solutions (IBIS) master technology plan.”
