CommScope, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, will be showcasing and demonstrating its various innovative solutions—plus its new brand identity—to the cable and broadband industry during the ANGA Cable Show, May 3 to 5, 2011 in Cologne, Germany.

CommScope will exhibit on Level 10.1/Booth U18, featuring the company’s new logo and colors in a modernistic exhibition stand that uses interactive touchscreens to showcase all the company has to offer across the broadband, wireless and enterprise markets.

At ANGA, CommScope will introduce a new line of cost effective fiber-optic micro cables for OSP (Outside Plant) applications in the European broadband market. These micro cables are designed for installations into microducts—technology commonly used in congested areas, such as metro applications due to space considerations. Micro cables provide European broadband operators a cost effective way to upgrade a network on demand by deploying fiber as needed. The new micro cable product portfolio includes both a stranded loose tube and central tube design. The stranded loose tube design is available in counts up to 144 with outer diameters varying from 5.6 to 8.2 mm. Stranded loose tube cable provides easy, mid-span access. The central tube design is available in counts up to 24 with outer diameters ranging from 3.5 to 4.2 mm. This compact, lightweight cable design is installer-preferred in access applications because of its easier handling.

BrightPath® Optical Solutions (BOS™) will also be showcased, demonstrating complete, scalable “end-to-end” FTTx solutions for the broadband industry. BOS is set across multiple fiber architectures for a revolutionary approach that works for customers’ unique needs. Comprising a full suite of head-end, outside plant and end-user solutions, BOS enables a multi-system operator to choose a product that meets the needs of today while providing a migration path to the technology of tomorrow. BOS enables operators to meet the unique requirements of residential, multi-dwelling unit, commercial and cellular backhaul applications by employing some of the industry’s leading technologies such as DPoE™, DOCSIS® [Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification], Provisioning of EPON [Ethernet Passive Optical Network]), Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) and hybrid fiber coax (HFC) node segmentation. BOS offers operators the ability to choose the right technology and architecture—all from a single, trusted partner. CommScope’s end-to-end systems approach brings the future to customers now with a comprehensive portfolio of technology solutions. CommScope will also highlight its latest DPoE products including the Edge 10 OLT [Optical Line Terminal] and C5000 ONU [Optical Network Unit], as well as High Power RFoG MicroNodes.

“By delivering a complete set of RFoG, HFC, and DPoE/EPON solutions, our BOS customers can cost effectively continue to deliver competitive high bandwidth services and fully leverage all of their existing infrastructure,” said Ric Johnsen, senior vice president, Broadband, CommScope. “With our micro cable offering, CommScope can ensure our broadband clients are meeting the needs of their customers as they demand faster and improved service.”

CommScope’s SYSTIMAX® iPatch® Intelligent Infrastructure Solution will be featured at the FNT-GmbH Booth (Level 10.1/Booth M38) with a live demonstration of the integration between iPatch and FNT’s Command software suite. The SYSTIMAX iPatch solution provides IT managers with vision, knowledge and control over their infrastructure, including electronic work orders and automated documentation of changes to the physical layer infrastructure. FNT’s Command software suite supports cable management, centralized management of telecommunications networks, Data Center Management and Configuration Management. The integration of iPatch and Command enhances the capabilities of the software by allowing its users to create work orders that are forwarded to iPatch and delivered as electronic work orders, with automatic updates of their completion. Command software users can also monitor connectivity in real-time, receiving instantaneous updates of unscheduled changes from iPatch.

“Faced with ever growing numbers and types of networked devices, IT managers are increasingly turning to the iPatch solution for real-time monitoring and auto-documentation of the physical layer, and are also deploying comprehensive management software like Command,” said Morgan Kurk, senior vice president, Enterprise Intelligent Buildings, CommScope. “Command users can now have the best of both worlds, accessing the iPatch real-time capabilities from within their preferred software suite.”
