CommScope Inc., a global leader in connectivity solutions for communication networks, has opened a new facility in Shanghai to showcase the latest technology used by enterprises and network operators in China for high performance communication infrastructure.

The new facility, located in the Caohejin Microelectronics Industrial Zone, brings together the people, resources and expertise of CommScope Enterprise Solutions, a world leader in enterprise network solutions, and CommScope’s Andrew Solutions, a global leader in radio frequency subsystem solutions for wireless networks, to better leverage the company’s broad portfolio of network infrastructure solutions for the benefit of its Chinese customers.

Enterprises and network operators in China will now be able to benefit from CommScope’s complete portfolio of solutions for wireless, enterprise and broadband applications, reflecting the evolution of the communication network marketplace towards integrated infrastructure solutions.

“CommScope has been a long term leader in the design, manufacture and delivery of high performance infrastructure solutions that meet and exceed global standards. This has been to the long term benefit of our customers,” said Dr. Ispran Kandasamy, vice president of Sales, Asia-Pacific, CommScope Enterprise Solutions. “CommScope’s significant presence in China reflects the growing local needs for high performance infrastructure regardless of whether the application runs over wired or wireless infrastructure.

“The opening of the new CommScope office and Executive Briefing Centre (EBC) in Shanghai marks another milestone in CommScope’s long-term commitment to China. Chinese businesses now have an opportunity to practically experience the full range of CommScope’s high performance solutions in one location so that they themselves can determine how best to gain competitive advantage via their network communication infrastructure.”

CommScope offers customers in China the benefit of its long-standing global experience, leveraging on its Connect and Evolve™ theme, which reflects the communication evolution across Asia Pacific where operators and enterprises seek to install cost effective networks on day one and at the same time have a network that is scalable enough to meet future demands.

"In China, the extraordinary quality and technological leadership of Andrew's solutions have earned the trust of telecommunications carriers as well as OEMs. Customers like to work with us to help them embrace future technologies," said Chinnee Tong, vice president of Andrew (China). "With the establishment of the EBC, we can show our customers how our versatile infrastructure solutions portfolio can empower them with state-of-the-art wired and wireless voice, video and data services in unique ways. We believe CommScope is unique in its ability to deliver a holistic solution that meets the diversifying needs of customers of various sizes around the world."

Andrew has long played a significant role in the Chinese market, currently employing thousands of employees in multiple cities including Suzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, and Shenzhen. The company recently provided solutions for numerous significant projects such as the 3G networks of China Telecom and China Unicom, National Center for the Performing Arts, Beijing-to-Tianjin and Shijiazhuang-to-Taiyuan high speed railways, Beijing Subway and Shanghai Metro. Andrew’s long history of providing advanced wireless infrastructure solutions in China began in the early 1970s and has led to its establishment of solid, long term cooperative relationships with the major Chinese operators and OEMs. The company’s local manufacturing and research and development facilities provide extensive in-country capabilities for product design and production, a key factor in development of world-class products and on-time deliveries to Chinese customers.

In China, two additional customers who have recently implemented CommScope’s communication infrastructure solutions include Laiwu Iron and Steel Group and the Suzhou Industrial Park Science and Technology Development Co., Ltd.

Laiwu is one of the top 10 steel companies in China and, to commemorate its 40th anniversary, it initiated two major projects. One of them is a centre of management excellence for the group while the new Laigang Research and Development centre will be used to undertake all product development. The two centres will be interconnected using SYSTIMAX® GigaSPEED® XL low smoke non-halogen (LSZH) CAT6 cable supporting more than 7,000 data points.

Meanwhile, the Suzhou Industrial Park Science and Technology Development Co., Ltd. has built a new four-storey, 42,000 square meter data centre complex to meet its computing and communication needs. A combination of single and multi mode pre-terminated optical cable solution is used in the Suzhou Industrial Park. Additionally, more than 100 kilometers of LSZH GigaSPEED XL® cabling and OFNP plenum optical cable connect blade servers, storage area networks and VIP area via 1,800 copper ports and 5,800 optical ports within the data center.
