The market-leading radio spectrum management capabilities of Comsearch,
an Andrew Corporation company, will be on full display April 5-7 in Las
Vegas as it serves as official spectrum manager for the CTIA WIRELESS
2006 trade show and systems integrator for the show's Wireless Home
In its ninth 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 new
challenges with demonstrations using WiMax and digital video
broadcasting-handhelds (DVB-H) technologies. Comsearch's spectrum
management process efficiently and successfully addresses the often
complex interference and frequency coordination issues for CTIA's many
temporary wireless demonstrations. Comsearch will coordinate with area
licensees and federal government agencies, perform interference analysis
and frequency coordination with microwave incumbents, coordinate
frequency use between exhibitors, and monitor on-site interference.
"Comsearch's proficiency in providing comprehensive spectrum management
and integration services has made the company an important partner in
the overall success of our annual show for almost a decade," said Robert
Mesirow, vice president and show director for CTIA. "We are committed to
providing exhibitors and attendees of CTIA WIRELESS 2006 a highly
positive show experience at one of the largest and most highly attended
wireless shows in the industry. Comsearch's expanded procedures for
tracking, registering, and monitoring all wireless demonstrations is
critical to preventing unnecessary radio frequency interference between
exhibitors or to operators in the Las Vegas market."
Also at CTIA WIRELESS 2006, Andrew will showcase to wireless operators
and original equipment manufacturers at its exhibit (booth #2022) new
capabilities and solutions for 3G networks that can lower cost and
improve performance. Andrew experts will demonstrate how the company
supports the entire radio frequency footprint with solutions that
include power amplifiers, filters and combiners, distributed coverage
and capacity, transmission line systems, antennas, spectrum management,
wireless location, and network management and optimization. Andrew also
will offer recurring theater-style presentations on topics of high
interest to attendees.
In addition, for the second consecutive year, Comsearch will integrate
and manage the wireless device demonstrations within the CTIA's Wireless
Home, a showcase of advanced communications and interactive technology
within a home erected in the main lobby between the north and central
hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The home will bring wireless
technologies to life in a tangible way, enabling visitors to interact
with and experience wireless home networking at its fullest potential.
Comsearch will extend its spectrum management experience and expertise
into the wireless home project to thoroughly evaluate wireless devices
displayed in the home and their frequency requirements, analyze
interoperability, coordinate frequencies and device placements within
the home, and perform pre-show testing and additional interference
"Comsearch is pleased to extend its ongoing support to CTIA's annual
show as the official spectrum manager and Wireless Home integrator,"
said Chris Hardy, vice president and general manager, Comsearch.
"Additional spectrum bands will be utilized to support new technology
demonstrations at this year's show and Comsearch looks forward to
managing this challenging environment to ensure a quality show
experience for everyone."
