BEIJING--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Employees of the Sinopec Zhenhai Refining & Chemical Company (ZRCC) in Ningbo, China will soon have more reliable, ubiquitous wireless coverage thanks to a new equipment contract with Andrew, the CommScope, Inc. division that is a global leader in wireless communication systems and products.

The Chinese refinery and petrochemicals company will use Andrew’s advanced wireless solutions to improve and strengthen wireless signals, reduce signal jamming and expand coverage in indoor and outdoor areas of ZRCC’s crude oil wharf, chemical park and other company facilities in Ningbo, China. Andrew will upgrade ZRCC’s analog trunk radio system to a digital 800 MHz TETRA (terrestrial trunked radio) system, the mobile radio standard often employed by public safety and emergency organizations, to help alleviate communications bottlenecking.

“ZRCC will make its new TETRA network available to multiple production units and locations within its organization,” said Ben Cardwell, vice president of sales and marketing, Asia Pacific, Andrew. “The result should be more effective and uniform central management and dispatching among production and office areas as well as improved resource sharing.”

Andrew will supply repeater equipment, indoor and outdoor antennas, coaxial cable and cable assemblies, and other wireless network components for ZRCC. Andrew is a leading provider of wireless solutions for locations vulnerable to weak wireless signal levels such as subway tunnels, high speed train lines, airports, sports arenas and other large buildings.

Andrew has long played a significant role in the Chinese market and recently provided solutions for numerous significant projects such as National Center for the Performing Arts, Ministry of Environmental Protection Building, Beijing-to-Tianjin and Shijiazhuang-to-Taiyuan high speed railways, Beijing Subway and Shanghai Metro. Andrew’s long history of providing advanced wireless infrastructure solutions in China began in the early 1970s and has led to its establishment of solid, long term cooperative relationships with the major Chinese operators and OEMs. The company’s local manufacturing and research and development facilities provide extensive in-country capabilities for product design and production, a key factor in development of world-class products and on-time deliveries to Chinese customers.
