Two innovative wireless solutions offered by CommScope,
a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communication networks,
have won awards from industry groups in China recently.
The China Center for Information Industry Development—along with Chinese
wireless operators China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom—named
base station antenna as a top 10 commercially promising technology
during the 2011 Fifth Annual China Communications Technology Meeting
held in Beijing.
Chinese rail transportation industry experts and media also recognized
radiating cable as a top 10 innovative product at the 7th
World Metro Rail Summit—China 2011, also held in Beijing.
“CommScope is flattered by this joint recognition from key players in
China’s wireless and rail transport communications industries,” said
Chinnee Tong, vice president of sales, China, CommScope. “We are
committed to offering innovative, locally manufactured solutions to
China’s wireless operators for meeting subscriber needs wherever they
are and with almost any wireless technology.”
DualPol base station antennas from CommScope were successfully
demonstrated at the 16th
Asian Games held in Guangzhou in November 2010 where they helped
enable reliable wireless coverage for the multitude of visiting fans and
athletes. DualPol antennas are dual polarized to support two frequency
bands in one antenna, decreasing the number of antennas needed to
support multiple technologies. DualPol antennas are also remote
electrical tilt compatible, meaning they can be tilted vertically to
optimize cell configurations.
RADIAX cables from CommScope have been installed in numerous high speed
railways, subways, stadiums, airports and office buildings throughout
China. RADIAX cables help bring wireless coverage inside such structures
by allowing RF signal to radiate out of the cable, enabling service in
areas that macro network signals cannot reach. As mobile subscribers
increasingly expect service wherever they are located, RADIAX cable and
other Andrew® branded coverage and capacity solutions can help wireless
operators meet customer demand.
“Advanced wireless networks require state-of-the-art infrastructure
solutions, which CommScope remains committed to sharing with our valued
customers and partners across China,” said Tong.
CommScope has facilities in Suzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, and Shenzhen,
China to support the domestic wireless marketplace with product design
and large-scale production capacities. The Suzhou facility was opened in
1997 by Andrew Corporation, which began operations in China in the 1970s
and was acquired by CommScope in 2007. CommScope manufactures many of
its Andrew Solutions products in Suzhou including HELIAX®
and RADIAX cables, connectors, and cable assemblies; base station
microwave antennas and RF filters. CommScope has also supplied
and capacity solutions for several large-scale projects in China
including the National Center for the Performing Arts; Ministry
of Environmental Protection Building; Taiyuan-Zhongwei-Yinchuan,
high speed railways; the Beijing
Subway and Shanghai Metro, among others.
