Unicom has added Andrew
Solutions, the CommScope,
Inc. division that is a global leader in wireless communication
systems and products, to its list of approved vendors for remote
electrical tilt (RET) base station antennas, centralizing antenna
procurement for the operator’s ongoing 3G network build-out.
“Being added to the approved vendor list is another step forward in our
commitment to China Unicom and its effort to build a world-class WCDMA
platform for 3G subscribers,” said Chinnee Tong, vice president of
sales, Andrew Solutions. “Our leading RET antennas, production
capabilities in Suzhou, China, and extensive experience in supporting 3G
networks will help us meet China Unicom’s needs.”
By adding the CommScope wireless unit to its approved vendor list, China
Unicom has enabled regional offices to select Teletilt®
sectored single- or dual-polarized base station antennas for centralized
purchase. China Unicom chose Teletilt antennas after rigorous testing
and screening. CommScope’s wireless division also supplies other RF Path
products to China Unicom for its WCDMA communication network, including transmission
RET antennas enable wireless operators to adjust remotely the downtilt
of antenna coverage patterns in order to manage capacity for
subscribers. This antenna solution also helps reduce costs associated
with tower visits for manually adjusting antennas. Teletilt antennas
have been deployed in many advanced wireless networks around the world.
Since the early 1970s, CommScope’s Andrew has provided leading wireless
infrastructure solutions to Chinese telecom operators and OEMs, and
established longstanding and stable partnerships with them. The wireless
unit’s various facilities in China, including an R&D center in Shanghai
