Engineers are just as good as their calculations. They can use various tools for their calculations, but as time moves on, their tools change. One new tool they can use is CommScope’s new Fiber Performance Calculator. Ricardo Diaz explains what engineers can expect when they use the latest calculator.
Not long ago, Ruckus Wireless was acquired by Brocade. This started our new adventure to build a stronger presence at the Network Edge with tight integration of the ICX family of switches and an even
Many operators are in the midst of evolving to the next level of sophistication in antenna configuration, planning the move from 2-way receive to 4-way receive. 4X2 MIMO will further improve the traffic carrying capability of the RF path and increase the capacity of the link from the base station to the mobile. The 4-way receive configurations will also ease the transition to 4X2 downlink MIMO. Ray Butler explains more in today’s blog post.
Today, we opened a new, multi-million dollar R&D and Operations center in Bangalore, India, dedicated to innovation for our customers worldwide. The Ulsoor, Bangalore site – which houses a...
Eager to learn more about how microwave antenna systems work? In today’s blog post, Jim Syme previews two key concepts in antenna theory: directivity and gain. His “back to basics” lesson comes from the new CommScope Infrastructure Academy online course called Microwave Radio Antenna Link Fundamentals.
Today’s blog post is the next edition in the “CommScope Definitions” series in which we explain common terms in communications network and data center infrastructure. In this blog, Dave Tanis explains how structured cabling and the related standards organizations have help improve the design, installation and maintenance of IT networks around the world.
Cell sites today include more RF components than ever, which complicates the measurement of return loss/VSWR. CommScope offers a System VSWR Calculator on its website that can help. Lou Meyer explains.
A good approach to small cells is to start with the root cause of the problem and then assess the most appropriate tools for each application. If you step back to see the bigger problem, then there are a host of tools that can be considered. Selecting the right tool then becomes a matter of evaluating each application and assessing future state requirements. Philip Sorrells can help you do so with information offered in today’s blog post and the LTE Best Practices ebook.
Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) is a required feature of 802.11ac Wave 2 APs that serves clients in parallel, freeing airtime and increasing the effective thoroughput of the Wi-Fi network. Ruckus BeamFlex+ customizes AP antenna configurations to focus signals, reduce noise, and produce the highest possible data rates.
