Hey SCTE, Welcome to the New CommScope!

The story remains the same for broadband and multi-system operators: how do they keep up with customer demand while maintaining network quality? Operators need solutions from a partner who can provide more innovation, global solutions and scale to solve all their network challenges. Joseph Depa explains how the recent acquisition of Broadband Network Solutions business from TE Connectivity better positions CommScope to offer such solutions, which will be on display during the upcoming SCTE Cable-Tec Expo.

CIO-Expo-15The network infrastructure that powers broadband providers and multi-system operators (MSO) is evolving rapidly. That is why the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in New Orleans (Oct. 13-16, 2015) is so important for operators and for CommScope. With our acquisition of TE Connectivity’s Broadband Network Solutions (BNS) business, CommScope is adding more innovation, global solutions and scale to help operators solve more network challenges.

With the combination of CommScope and the BNS business, we look to accelerate industry innovation, solve more wired and wireless network challenges and better serve customers in more markets around the world. Broadband and MSOs and are facing four major challenges:

  • Increasing bandwidth requirements
  • Network quality issues
  • Rapid deployment that is scalable
  • Optimized infrastructure that can support every application

And CommScope now has even more solutions:

  • We are better positioned to support the steadily growing demand for broadband services in developed and emerging markets with an expanded fiber offering, enabling faster bandwidth and lower latency
  • We have a strong track record of operational excellence through optimizing our manufacturing processes and successfully integrating solutions
  • Our manufacturing footprint provides significant scale advantages within addressable markets. Manufacturing and distribution facilities are strategically located to optimize service levels and product delivery times.
  • We are media-agnostic and application-driven

Come visit us in two locations at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo. The legacy CommScope Broadband Business Unit will showcase its solutions in booth #633, including:

PON Solution

  • Flexible chassis accommodates both EPON and GPON technologies
  • Designed to be deployed in residential FTTx, access networks for commercial accounts, multi-dwelling units, commercial in-building, security and building automation and wireless access points

E2O (Electrical to Optical)

  • Bridge HFC network to FTTx, combines fiber, microducts and coax under one jacket
  • Mitigate future cost of fiber installation

HomeConnect Solutions

  • Maximizing addressability, signal integrity and product life span while reducing corrosion, CPD and noise ingress/egress
  • Complete family of products helps reduce OpEx and meets subscriber expectations

BrightPath Optical Solution

  • Deployments allow operators to cost effectively deliver competitive high bandwidth services and fully leverage all of their existing infrastructures
  • Enables operators to choose a product that meets the needs of today while providing a migration path to the technology of tomorrow

The BNS group will be in booth #1635; stop by to learn more about our new fiber solutions including:

Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH) 4000

  • Discrete, small-size enclosures overcomes space challenges in crowded hand holes
  • Addresses the market’s needs for below-grade and underground FTTH deployments

Fiber Indexing

  • Uses common, pre-connectorized building block components to create a plug-and-play network that is faster to deploy
  • Eliminates the need for custom cable assemblies and splicing

Powered Fiber Cable System

  • Allows placing network devices exactly where they are needed to maximize coverage
  • Greatly speeds up planning by eliminating DC electrical calculations for voltage/power drop over varying distances

Fiber Optic Splice Closure

  • FOSC splice closures leverage innovations in polymers and materials science to create world-class sealing to allow fiber optics to perform in the harshest environments
  • Rugged, versatile platform that can be used in any environment (aerial, pedestal, buried, and underground)

NG4access ODF platform

  • Optical fiber distribution frame (ODF), universal chassis, adapter pack, and cabled module solution set
  • Delivers equal front and rear technician access

Rapid Fiber Panels

  • Ultimate plug-and-play FTTx solutions
  • Assist service provides with a worry-free installation when deploying optical fiber distribution networks for various architectures

Mini Rapid Fiber Distribution Terminal (RDT)

  • Leverages RapidReel cable spool technology to deploy the exact amount of in-building distribution cable needed
  • The far end of the microcable terminates to a 12-fiber multi-fiber push-on (MPO) or hardened multi-fiber optical connector (HMFOC) ensuring faster cable routing and equipment terminations by the technician

By uniting our complementary solutions, technologies and geographic and market coverage, CommScope is creating a stronger platform from which to serve our customers. Please stop by either of our booths during the show to learn more about the new CommScope.

Welcome to the new CommScope, and we hope to see you in New Orleans.
