CommScope, Inc. (NYSE: CTV), a world leader in cable and connectivity solutions, today announced that its new AirBridge(TM) Wireless Plant Extension product has won a Communications Technology Magazine Readers' Choice Award for 2005. Based on a vote by the participants attending the 2005 Cable-Tec Expo(R) held in June 2005, AirBridge was selected over three other finalists in its category, "Best New Distribution/Line and Transmission Product." The AirBridge system is designed to enable the deployment of carrier-grade business services to areas where multiple system operator (MSO) service is not currently available.

"The rapid deployment of voice, advanced video and data services over HFC, wireless and fiber is building the need for more and better products like never before," said Jerry Gunderson, publisher of Communications Technology Magazine. "This year's winners, finalists and participants reflect an excellence and commitment to the industry that will fulfill the promise that cable represents to both residential and commercial customers."

AirBridge consists of a radio system that can transmit a data channel to a receiver to deliver cable modem or other services to subscribers within transmitter range. CommScope introduced it to help MSOs deal with challenges associated with commercial zoning restrictions, right of way problems or other delays often occurring with traditional installations of new coaxial or fiber optic cables. The AirBridge system is extremely craft-friendly and easy to install, offering system transparency as well as the ability to facilitate many services including DOCSIS(R) cable modem links and VoIP to business customers.
