CommScope Enterprise Solutions, a division of CommScope, Inc.
(NYSE:CTV), today announced its partnership with iconnect Technologies,
a leader in the field of connected real estate structured cabling
solutions, to help make ”Langtree at the Lake” in Mooresville, N.C., one
of the first truly connected communities of its kind.
iconnect partnered with CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure
solutions for communications networks, to create a common network
infrastructure that will handle virtually every aspect of the
community’s technical operations, both commercially and residentially.
Nestled on the shores of Lake Norman, the 125-acre mixed-use development
will boast luxury condominiums, health clubs and restaurant; while the
communications network will enable residents to shop for groceries
online, rent boats via the Internet, listen to satellite music and
access IP telephones and television.

technology features that most development residents can only dream
about,” said Brad Howard, chief operating officer, The Langtree Group.

familiarity with the area, knowledge of the industry and available
resources. Although the companies are early in the project’s design
phase, CommScope intends to utilize its Uniprise® mixed-use offerings to
best address the unique and diverse objectives of each business,
neighborhood residence or leisure club. In addition, CommScope’s
integrated copper and fiber solutions will be employed in order to meet
all network requirements, while balancing cost and performance.
“If you look at the entire CommScope portfolio, you’ll see that the
services and products we provide create a reliable network
infrastructure for a mixed-use community,” said Mark Peterson, senior
vice president, global marketing, Enterprise, CommScope. “The major
benefit that CommScope brings to the table with Uniprise is a wide range
of physical layer solutions with a single point of contact. From cabling
conduit to any one of our cabling solutions to connectors, we provide a
complete solution so that the developers won’t need multiple vendors to
create a successful network.”
With the completion of Langtree at the Lake set for 2014, developers are
accounting for the reliable network to pave the way for lavish amenities
not considered in the typical rural community.
“We are excited to be involved in the revolution of connected real
estate technology with Langtree at the Lake,” said iconnect President
Shohn Petty. “By using our vast experience to implement common physical
layer infrastructure solutions, we are helping the developer save money
through elimination of disparate physical layer network
infrastructures,” he said. “At Langtree at the Lake, residents and
commercial tenants will experience the power of integrated technologies
as well as the efficiencies and economies of scale that result from an
