The task of managing wireless spectrum needs for exhibitors’
demonstrations at the International
CTIA WIRELESS 2009® trade show and conference will
be handled by Comsearch,
a CommScope company, which will serve as official spectrum manager for
the twelfth consecutive year.
Comsearch will help ensure that the radio frequencies used in
demonstrations by exhibitors do not interfere with each other or other
licensed wireless operations in the area. To do so, the company
coordinates with area licensees, manages frequency use among exhibitors,
conducts pre-show testing, and monitors on-site signals for
interference. As visitors and exhibitors desire more and more bandwidth
for wireless services and demonstrations, including those expected to
conduct live demonstrations of next generation network technologies like
LTE and WiMAX at this year’s show, Comsearch’s role becomes increasingly
critical to the event’s success.
“Comsearch is an important partner of ours,” said Robert Mesirow, vice
president and show director for CTIA. “Coordinating the massive amount
of spectrum needed to produce the world’s largest wireless marketplace
is no easy task. Comsearch has consistently provided strong signal
coverage for attendees and exhibitors who showcase hundreds of new
network products and services.”
Comsearch has more than a quarter century of experience providing
spectrum management, software, and data solutions to the wireless world.
Solutions focus on key areas of spectrum management including strategic
consultation, wireless engineering, frequency planning and
administration, and monitoring and interference measurements. Its
experienced engineers, software products, and information databases have
addressed the specific challenges of network design and spectrum
management for the evolving wireless industry. Comsearch recently
introduced a next generation microwave planning software solution, iQ.link®XG
Version 9.0, for wireless operators evaluating upgrades to their
microwave backhaul networks.
“Whether it is helping design microwave backhaul or in-building systems,
moving incumbent frequency owners to new spectrum, testing and
optimizing wireless networks, or managing spectrum at world-class
industry events like International CTIA WIRELESS, Comsearch has the
experience and ability to manage spectrum efficiently,” said Chris
Hardy, vice president and general manager, Comsearch.
