The market-leading radio spectrum management capabilities of Comsearch, a CommScope, Inc. company, will be on full display April 1-3 in Las Vegas as it again serves as official spectrum manager for the CTIA WIRELESS® 2008 trade show and conference.

In its 11th consecutive year as official spectrum manager at CTIA WIRELESS, Comsearch will ensure that the radio frequencies used in demonstrations by exhibitors do not interfere with each other or other licensed wireless operations in the area. This year's show presents challenges with demonstrations using UMTS, LTE, WiMAX, and DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcasting-Handhelds) technologies, in addition to the GSM and CDMA technologies common to the show.

Comsearchs spectrum management process efficiently and successfully addresses the often complex interference and frequency coordination issues for CTIAs many temporary wireless demonstrations. Comsearch will coordinate with area licensees and federal government agencies, perform interference analysis and frequency coordination with microwave incumbents, coordinate shared frequency use between exhibitors, and monitor on-site interference.

As an important long-time partner of ours, Comsearchs proficiency in providing comprehensive spectrum management and integration services is an essential component in the smooth operations of our events, said Robert Mesirow, vice president and show director for CTIA. We are committed to providing exhibitors and attendees of CTIA WIRELESS 2008 a first-rate experience at the largest and most highly attended wireless show in the industry. Comsearchs expanded procedures for tracking, registering, and monitoring all wireless demonstrations are critical for preventing unnecessary radio frequency interference between exhibitors or with operators in the Las Vegas market.

Comsearch is pleased to extend its ongoing support to CTIAs annual show as the official spectrum manager, said Chris Hardy, vice president and general manager, Comsearch. Comsearch looks forward to managing this challenging environment of multiple technologies and radio spectrum bands to ensure a quality show experience for everyone.
