CommScope, Inc. (NYSE: CTV), a market leader in the design and
manufacture of advanced enclosures, today announced its specialized
cabinets for E911 applications. CommScope was among the first in the
industry to develop these compact outdoor enclosures, which are designed
to house high-density electronic equipment. This cabinet technology
enables service providers to meet public safety and emergency service
regulations in next-generation wireless networks.
"CommScope plays a unique role supporting E911 public safety wireless
services," stated Ted Hally, Executive Vice President and General
Manager of Wireless/Carrier Solutions. "We design these cabinets to
house E911 equipment where space is limited. These compact cabinets
provide superior reliability and heat dissipation as well as flexibility
of installation for wireless E911 applications for Public Safety,
Emergency and Homeland Security Networks. Service providers understand
that CommScope enclosure solutions have proven reliability and the
flexibility to work with virtually any network platform."
Carrier Solution's E911 cabinets are designed with an enhanced heating
and cooling system to protect and support the deployment of
next-generation equipment that provides subscriber location services
over cellular networks. When a wireless user dials 911, a local
emergency official with access to E911 technology should be able to
determine the identity of the caller and location. This is vital
information in an emergency, and service reliability is key.
Hally explained, "Public safety and emergency service regulations are
requiring service providers to build E911 capability regardless of their
current network platform. CommScope's E911 enclosure technology is
designed to work with virtually any network including Time Division
Multiple Access (TDMA), Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), Global
Standard for Mobile (GSM), and Next-Generation 2.5G/3G Wireless
CommScope's innovative enclosures are compact, versatile indoor or
outdoor cabinets that, in addition to meeting the requirements of E911
services, can be used for applications ranging from Asymmetrical Digital
Subscriber Line (ADSL), High rate Digital Subscriber Line (HDSL), Plain
Old Telephone Service (POTS) and Integrated Service Data Network (ISDN).
The enhanced cooling system also provides customers with environmental
controls to provide superior heat dissipation using heat exchanger
technology. Using a patented sheet metal design, the advanced enclosure
system and series of sealed bays protect sensitive electronics and
provide resistance from Electro-magnetic Interference (EMI), humidity,
dust, rain, fire and vandalism. The cabinets' range of sizes offer
installation choices for pad, pole, or wall mount. In addition,
CommScope's advanced enclosure technology meets the ISO & TL 9000 and
Telcordia GR-487 requirements.
