For the 14th year in a row, Comsearch,
a CommScope company, will serve as official spectrum manager for the International
CTIA WIRELESS 2011® trade show and conference,
taking place March 22-24 at the Orange County Convention Center,
Orlando, Florida. Comsearch will manage spectrum for exhibitor
demonstrations and local wireless operators.
The greater channel bandwidths that exhibitors are requesting to support
new broadband technologies along with the usual anticipated increase in
spectrum demands from attendees are the primary challenges that
Comsearch is helping remedy.
“This year’s show has required some interesting engineering solutions,
but we expect a smooth running show with unimpeded demos and
uninterrupted services for local operators,” said Chris Hardy, vice
Comsearch® has served as CTIA WIRELESS spectrum manager for almost 15
years, ensuring that the radio frequencies used in demonstrations by
show exhibitors do not interfere with each other or other licensed
wireless operations in the area. The company coordinates with area
licensees, manages frequency use among exhibitors, conducts pre-show
testing, and monitors on-site signals for interference.
“Comsearch’s services are a staple in our trade show preparation plan,”
said Robert Mesirow, vice president and show director for CTIA. “We rely
on Comsearch to successfully manage spectrum to ensure an
interference-free show for the thousands of attendees who come to North
America’s largest wireless event.”
Among the unique challenges of this year’s show is the likelihood of
more LTE demonstrations than in past years, with many exhibitors
requesting larger portions of channel bandwidth. Meeting those demands
is complicated by local operators using more bandwidth for their
everyday service offerings. However, Comsearch has made extensive plans
to ensure that exhibitors have access to wireless spectrum and local
service operators will not suffer any interference issues.
