Telecom, centralizing the purchase of remote electrical tilt (RET)
antennas for its CDMA wireless network involved the naming of approved
suppliers, of which the only foreign supplier named was Andrew
Solutions, the CommScope,
Inc. division that is a global leader in wireless communication
systems and products.
CommScope’s wireless unit won the antenna bid largely due to its Teletilt®
base station antennas’ outstanding design, technical advantage, and
stable performance, combined with the company’s extensive experience in
supporting massive commercial applications and network deployments
globally. The value of the bid is undisclosed.
“We are well-known as a reliable and experienced supplier in China,
having supported China Unicom’s CDMA network since 2002, and now
offering antenna solutions to China Telecom after their merger,” said
Chinnee Tong, vice president of sales, Andrew Solutions. “Our continual
antenna research and development that incorporates customer input, and
our commitment to developing integrated total solutions, has contributed
toward our reputation and ability to meet China Telecom’s rigorous
China Telecom’s bidding process attracted a dozen vendors from home and
abroad, of which CommScope’s wireless division was the only foreign
supplier to win. With the maturity of RET antenna technology, China
Telecom raised new requirements for RET antennas, for which Andrew
Solutions made corresponding improvements. The new antenna for China
Telecom supports the antenna data interface protocol (ADIP) and can
conduct remote monitoring and control of ADIP-supported RET antennas and
tower amplifiers. The new antennas will also help China Telecom take
early precautions against performance degradation, optimize the network
regularly, save on the cost of emergency dispatch and maintenance crews,
and preserve customer satisfaction.
Since the early 1970s, CommScope’s Andrew has provided leading wireless
infrastructure solutions to Chinese telecom operators and OEMs, and
established longstanding and stable partnerships with them. The unit’s
various facilities in China, including an R&D center in Shanghai and
manufacturing in Suzhou, provide extensive design and mass production
capacity to the domestic market, ensuring timely delivery of first-class
products to Chinese customers.
