CommScope Enterprise Solutions, a division of CommScope, Inc. (NYSE:CTV), in keeping with its dedication to provide its Chinese customers with intelligent network infrastructure solutions and services, today announced its inclusion in phase II of the CCTV New Site Construction and Development Program at a press conference held in Beijing. In addition, the company discussed plans to showcase its live 10GBASE-T technology demonstration at the Datacenter Dynamics Show in Shanghai on May 30 – marking the demo’s debut in China.

CommScope won the cabling contract for the TVCC (Television Cultural Center), phase I of CCTV’s new site program in 2007. The TVCC will serve as the TV broadcasting and news center for the upcoming 2008 Olympic Games. When determining which partner to choose for phase II of the new site, CCTV turned to CommScope’s intelligent network infrastructure solutions once again, based on the success of the first implementation.

“As one of the first network infrastructure solutions providers in the Chinese market, CommScope has a strong track record largely based on its ability to provide high-performance cabling and intelligent infrastructure solutions,” said Charles Wong, Regional Director of Greater China for CommScope Enterprise Solutions. “Our inclusion in both phases of the CCTV program further strengthens our company’s leadership as a supplier of superior products.”

“China is an extremely important market for us,” added Peter Karlsson, senior vice president, global sales for CommScope Enterprise Solutions. “We will continue to focus on understanding our Chinese customers’ diverse network requirements and to deliver the solution that best meets their needs. With our participation in high-profile implementations like the CCTV program, we are confident in our place in China’s cabling market now and in the future.”

The 159m high TVCC building has a 60,000 square meter total floor area and incorporates CommScope’s advanced SYSTIMAX® iPatch® intelligent infrastructure solution, providing IT personnel with an efficient means of managing the network physical layer. In addition, this provision offers enhanced security measures. Other CommScope solutions used in this installation are the low smoke zero halogen (LSZH), GigaSPEED XL® Solution, LazrSPEED® and TeraSPEED® Solutions.

At the press conference, CommScope also announced plans to unveil the first live demonstration of 10GBASE-T technology in China. The demonstration runs Intel’s 10GbE Server Adapter and Cisco’s 10GbE Catalyst Switch over the SYSTIMAX GigaSPEED X10D® Cat6A UTP infrastructure solution to showcase the full capability of 10Gb/s in the network.
