CommScope @ MWC 2016

CommScope to Showcase Dynamic Portfolio of Wireless Solutions
CommScope will demonstrate its latest infrastructure solutions for telecoms at Mobile World Congress 2016 (MWC 2016) in Barcelona.

“As wireless networks evolve toward Cloud RAN, one rule still applies—operators need to squeeze as much capacity out of their existing networks as possible,” said Ben Cardwell, senior vice president, Mobility Solutions, CommScope.

“CommScope is developing solutions that build upon our long-standing expertise in radio frequency (RF) and cellular solutions and include our newly-enhanced strength in intelligent small cell solutions and fiber connectivity,” said Ben Cardwell.

CommScope said its OneCell C-RAN Small Cell Solution forms a single super cell indoors that eliminates handovers and border interference across large areas. OneCell enables sector virtualization with Smart Reuse technology that gives operators the ability to scale capacity within a given spectrum.

The Powered Fiber Cable System speeds the installation of, powering and communication with small cells, Wi-Fi access points, security cameras and other dc-powered devices. The hybrid fiber / copper cabling and remote powering unit correct for electrical line loss and reduce the need for local utility negotiations.

PowerShift is the direct current (DC) power supply solution for efficiently managing power to remote radio units. PowerShift delivers efficient voltage to remote radio units, utilizing technology CommScope developed with the power supply experts at General Electric. PowerShift can extend the uptime for RF batteries by up to 35 percent.

Optical PIM Tester allows technicians to connect directly to the base band unit at the bottom of a cell tower and perform an active, cross-band passive intermodulation (PIM) test over the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI).

CommScope will display some of its newly-acquired fiber connectivity and management solutions. The company’s fiber portfolio includes panels and frames and plug-and-play modules that offer added flexibility and functionality.

CommScope will also exhibit its HELIAX FiberFeed hybrid cable and other fiber cabling solutions for cell sites.
