Need a quick update about CommScope’s latest in-building wireless offerings? I interviewed Mike Shumate, vice president of CommScope’s DAS business, at the HetNet Expo in Chicago last week to get you just that. Mike summarized what’s going on now with CommScope’s two latest in-building wireless solutions: the ION-U and the ION-E.

The ION-U is the combined high and low power platform that, among many benefits, includes software-based intelligence to make set-up and optimization easier. If you want to see an ION-U demo (and weren’t at the show to do so), check out these RCR Wireless videos of the ION-U software and cabling wizard.

The ION-E is unified wireless infrastructure specifically designed for business enterprises. It is based off the common IT backbone found in most buildings, making it more familiar to installers and IT managers when deploying. Most recently, CommScope announced it is available for US operator trials.
