CommScope, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, will participate in the AfricaCom 2011 World Series by hosting several workshops designed to help mobile operators discover new network solutions and revenue opportunities.

CommScope will share its insights and expertise through its involvement as Andrew Solutions in virtually all the world’s best mobile communication networks, including those deployed in all 10 venues during the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

The sessions will focus on four approaches to better manage network coverage, capacity and costs:

  • Overcoming the coverage and capacity challenges associated with technology overlays, site sharing and concealment
  • Reducing energy costs through more efficient power consumption and renewable energy sources
  • Lowering operating expenses through intelligent monitoring and control of cell sites
  • Finding new ways to manage coverage challenges in high-density and in-building locations

“Africa is at a turning point and mobile technology will play a key role in its social and economic development over the next decade,” said Vick Mamlouk, vice president, Middle East and Africa Sales, CommScope. “Two of the most significant objectives for African mobile operators are to optimise network infrastructure and ensure smooth 4G deployments. We have huge experience in both of these areas and we’re looking forward to supporting more operators and OEMs at AfricaCom 2011. We want to help them discover how best to reduce running costs and deploy networks better positioned to take advantage of the substantial mobile data opportunity across Africa.”

AfricaCom will take place on the 9 - 10 November 2011 in Cape Town, South Africa and is the largest communications conference and exhibition in Africa, gathering together over 5,000 telecoms decision-makers.

The series of CommScope AfricaCom workshops will take place at stand MR19. To register, please visit:
