    Think Fiber. Think CommScope. eBook

    The road to the future is paved in fiber. No other infrastructure solution offers its efficiency, performance and sheer speed. If it’s not the cornerstone of your network or data center now, it will be soon. To gain the greatest of fiber benefits, however, you need to work with a solutions provider who’s been at the center of the science since the industry’s very first fiber-optic deployments—CommScope. Think Fiber. Think CommScope. This ebook shows how CommScope and fiber have grown up together. You’ll see:

    • How CommScope solutions date to the first commercial fiber products
    • How many solutions meet or exceed standards—often before they are even published
    • How fiber plays a critical role in data centers, intelligent buildings, wired and wireless networks
    • How emerging applications and technologies make fiber a must-have in the modern enterprise
    • How CommScope is making fiber easier to deploy and more cost-efficient than ever
    • How single-source provisioning of complete fiber solutions is possible on a global scale


    When you think fiber, think CommScope.
