Two innovative wireless solutions offered by CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communication networks, have won awards from industry groups in China recently.

The China Center for Information Industry Development—along with Chinese wireless operators China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom—named CommScope’s DualPol® base station antenna as a top 10 commercially promising technology during the 2011 Fifth Annual China Communications Technology Meeting held in Beijing.

Chinese rail transportation industry experts and media also recognized CommScope’s RADIAX® radiating cable as a top 10 innovative product at the 7th World Metro Rail Summit—China 2011, also held in Beijing.

“CommScope is flattered by this joint recognition from key players in China’s wireless and rail transport communications industries,” said Chinnee Tong, vice president of sales, China, CommScope. “We are committed to offering innovative, locally manufactured solutions to China’s wireless operators for meeting subscriber needs wherever they are and with almost any wireless technology.”

DualPol base station antennas from CommScope were successfully demonstrated at the 16th Asian Games held in Guangzhou in November 2010 where they helped enable reliable wireless coverage for the multitude of visiting fans and athletes. DualPol antennas are dual polarized to support two frequency bands in one antenna, decreasing the number of antennas needed to support multiple technologies. DualPol antennas are also remote electrical tilt compatible, meaning they can be tilted vertically to optimize cell configurations.

RADIAX cables from CommScope have been installed in numerous high speed railways, subways, stadiums, airports and office buildings throughout China. RADIAX cables help bring wireless coverage inside such structures by allowing RF signal to radiate out of the cable, enabling service in areas that macro network signals cannot reach. As mobile subscribers increasingly expect service wherever they are located, RADIAX cable and other Andrew® branded coverage and capacity solutions can help wireless operators meet customer demand.

“Advanced wireless networks require state-of-the-art infrastructure solutions, which CommScope remains committed to sharing with our valued customers and partners across China,” said Tong.

CommScope has facilities in Suzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, and Shenzhen, China to support the domestic wireless marketplace with product design and large-scale production capacities. The Suzhou facility was opened in 1997 by Andrew Corporation, which began operations in China in the 1970s and was acquired by CommScope in 2007. CommScope manufactures many of its Andrew Solutions products in Suzhou including HELIAX® and RADIAX cables, connectors, and cable assemblies; base station antennas; ValuLine® microwave antennas and RF filters. CommScope has also supplied robust coverage and capacity solutions for several large-scale projects in China including the National Center for the Performing Arts; Ministry of Environmental Protection Building; Taiyuan-Zhongwei-Yinchuan, Beijing-Tianjin and Shijiazhuang-Taiyuan high speed railways; the Beijing Subway and Shanghai Metro, among others.
