Andrew, the CommScope, Inc., division that is a global leader in communications systems and products, has won a major contract to upgrade the existing communications infrastructure on one of Singapores Mass Rapid Transit rail lines to support a third generation wireless networkthe first 3G service for an underground radio network in Singapore.

As part of this project, Andrew will work with IntraWave, the infrastructure service provider for commercial wireless services on the North East Line of Singapores MRT rail network. The existing communications infrastructure, which Andrew designed and was activated in 2002, supports only second generation, or 2G, mobile devices. This upgrade is designed to provide North East Line commuters with better overall wireless coverage and reception, as well as greater bandwidth and download speeds when using 3G mobile devices. This is intended to enable commuters to make full use of mobile applications such as video calls, video and music downloads and Internet services.

This project elevates wireless coverage on Singapores underground mass transit system to the next level, said Matt Melester, vice president and general manager, Wireless Innovations, Andrew. It is designed to enable commuters to reap the full benefits of 3G technology while on the movesomething that will be welcomed by the many Singapore residents here who are tech-savvy consumers and early adopters of technology.

The infrastructure upgrade will support the various 3G applications and services offered by the three local Singapore operatorsSingTel Mobile, StarHub Mobile and MobileOne Network.

Andrew was a perfect choice for this project because of its legacy in wireless technologies, strong track record and competency to provide excellent solutions that will spearhead our efforts on this project, said Veni P.K., general manager, IntraWave.
