CommScope, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, today launched its global BusinessPartner Program for 2011 and introduced its new Solution BusinessPartner accreditation.

As a worldwide industry pioneer through its SYSTIMAX® and Uniprise® brands and new Wired for Wireless™ Solution, CommScope offers valuable resources including first-to-market solutions, a global footprint, breakthrough innovations as well as technical, marketing and sales support programs for its BusinessPartners. By initiating global consistency in the requirements and rewards for BusinessPartners across the world, the new program establishes a process for evolving existing BusinessPartner capabilities to support cutting edge wired and wireless infrastructure solutions, as well as connecting with new organizations that have the expertise, coverage and capabilities to support CommScope’s rapidly evolving solution portfolio.

With the addition of the Solution BusinessPartner accreditation, CommScope recognizes the endeavors of existing and future BusinessPartners to advance complete solution capabilities by becoming qualified designers and installers of CommScope’s integrated connectivity offerings, such as the iPatch® Intelligent Infrastructure Solution or In-Building Wireless (IBW) solutions. Solutions BusinessPartners will be integrated into CommScope’s existing, renowned BusinessPartner program.

CommScope BusinessPartner types

  • Authorized/Prestige/Elite BusinessPartners are resellers engaged with the full design and installation of passive physical layer infrastructure solutions, such as SYSTIMAX or Uniprise.
  • Solution BusinessPartners are resellers engaged with the full design and installation of one of CommScope’s complete integrated solutions such as the iPatch or In-Building Wireless solutions.
  • Integration BusinessPartners are resellers integrating CommScope solutions into a wider portfolio for customers and use one of the other BusinessPartner types for passive solution installations.
  • Implementation BusinessPartners are resellers specifically aimed at installation of a particular solution or application.

Note: BusinessPartners may hold one or more of the above accreditations depending upon their experience and expertise.

“With the new CommScope BusinessPartner Program, we’re enabling customers to connect to the right partners at the right levels while evolving into solutions with the performance, reliability and intelligence capabilities to support network and bandwidth requirements of the future,” said Stephen Kowal, vice president global channel sales, CommScope. “By implementing globally consistent measurements and rewards for our BusinessPartners, we are establishing a superior quality global support program in the network infrastructure industry.”

Choosing a product or solution that assures proven performance, reliability and quality is as crucial to the success of a company’s network infrastructure as selecting a qualified company with the expertise, training and experience to implement the solution for both wired and wireless networks. As a result, the new program incorporates the addition of a global customer satisfaction survey that enables customers to review CommScope BusinessPartners on all tiers and select the company with the right expertise and support for their network infrastructure and IT requirements based on past performance.

From basic installation to more advanced implementation services like design and integration, CommScope’s BusinessPartner Program creates a world-wide support network of infrastructure solutions companies committed to understanding and delivering what customers need to be prepared for—the communications demands of tomorrow, today.
