CommScope, Inc. will showcase during the upcoming SCTE Cable-Tec Expo® how three key components of a network—technology, intelligence and energy conservation—can reap big rewards for cable and multi-system operators (MSOs) in cost savings and improved performance.

“We believe CommScope is unique in offering a complete solution portfolio allowing operators to provide consumers with today’s advanced services while also preparing them for demands of the future,” said Ric Johnsen, senior vice president, Broadband, CommScope. “We work with our customers to understand the specific business challenges they face and then develop solutions to help them achieve their critical goals. Cost effectively managing the increasing demand for bandwidth tops the list of customer concerns, and CommScope offers a variety of solutions to help operators overcome this challenge.”

During the November 15-17 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Atlanta, CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, will showcase how it can help operators maximize their network’s performance and efficiency by implementing:

  • Bandwidth-enhancing technology
  • Intelligent networking solutions
  • Energy conservation solutions

For example, as operators’ networks evolve to accommodate more IP based services, they can deploy CommScope’s innovative and award-winningwideband edge QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) solution. It can maximize a network’s flexibility by allowing operators to roll out their existing voice, video and data services plus support higher bandwidth and next-generation services over HFC (hybrid fiber coax) networks without the need for additional hardware or service disruptions. In addition to improving a headend’s density, it is designed to reduce power consumption in headend/hub environments through consolidation of equipment (requires less power for equipment and for HVAC).

“This is just one example of how CommScope is working to help operators maximize the effectiveness of their network,” Johnsen added.

CommScope will also advise MSOs on how to add intelligence into their networks, allowing them to make adjustments to parameters improving network performance and increasing overall operational efficiency.

Another noteworthy solution that will be discussed at the show is the advancements of CommScope’s hydrogen fuel cell technology and cooling solutions to help operators reduce energy consumption and provide clean backup power at hub site locations.

“CommScope has a long, trusted history in the cable and telecommunication industries,” Johnsen added. “As our customers and industry continued to evolve, so has CommScope.”

SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2011, hosted by the Society of Cable Telecommunication Engineers (SCTE), will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center. CommScope’s booth (No. 1854) will have interactive touchscreens showcasing many of the technology, intelligence and energy conservation and management solutions the company has to offer the cable television industry. CommScope will also participate in the Green Pavilion, Booth 20, where the 5-kilowatt fuel cell will be on display.
