Comsearch, an Andrew Corporation company, has been selected as official
spectrum manager for SUPERCOMM 2005 in Chicago next week, with the huge
role of managing wireless signals generated by the hundreds of
communications exhibitors and tens of thousands of visitors using mobile
phones and data devices.

frequencies at large telecommunications events is required to minimize
interference between wireless devices and provide a quality experience
for our exhibitors and attendees," said A.J. Janosko of the

Comsearch will oversee all wireless communications planning and usage
prior to and during this huge telecommunications industry trade show,
including coordination with wireless carriers serving the Chicago
market, coordination between exhibitors, and on-site interference
monitoring. With more than 600 exhibitors at SUPERCOMM 2005, it's
critical that the frequencies used for the wireless demonstrations do
not interfere with each other and with other licensed wireless
operations in the area.
"As wireless usage among exhibitors and attendees continues to multiply,
Comsearch's spectrum management experience enables the various
communications devices and mobile networks to peacefully coexist during
the week of the show," said Chris Hardy, vice president and general
manager of Comsearch. "The increasingly complex wireless environment
involving wireless demonstrations at the show, driven by growing numbers
of new 3G technologies and unlicensed device demonstrations, requires a
comprehensive spectrum management process in which Comsearch excels."

interference and frequency coordination issues for SUPERCOMM's temporary
wireless demonstrations. Using its iQ-clear(R) interference analysis
software and engineering expertise, Comsearch will offer a full range of
spectrum management services to ensure that wireless communications
