The market-leading radio spectrum management capabilities of Comsearch, an Andrew Corporation company, will be on full display March 27-29 in Orlando as it again serves as official spectrum manager for the CTIA WIRELESS 2007 trade show and systems integrator for the shows Wireless Building showcase.

In its tenth consecutive year as official spectrum manager at CTIA WIRELESS, Comsearch will ensure that the radio frequencies used in demonstrations by exhibitors do not interfere with each other and other licensed wireless operations in the area. This year's show presents challenges with demonstrations using UMTS, WiMAX, and DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcasting-Handhelds) technologies, in addition to the GSM and CDMA technologies common to the show.

Comsearchs spectrum management process efficiently and successfully addresses the often complex interference and frequency coordination issues for CTIAs many temporary wireless demonstrations.
