Distributed antenna systems (DAS) are proliferating fast as operators struggle to meet capacity demands, but DAS deployments can be complex and costly. ION-U is ideal for indoor, outdoor and mixed applications. It deploys quickly, easily and reliably for faster time-to-market.
During our recent Global Enterprise Survey, nearly one in three of surveyed participants mentioned the need for intelligent infrastructure as an IT infrastructure game-changer. The key driver, cited in 61 percent of the surveys, is the increasing demand for greater productivity.
The statement that rapid—even radical—changes on both the commercial services and consumer sides of the business are impacting operators to the very fiber of their beings should be taken literally as well as figuratively. The changes are impacting their use of coax just as drastically. In an Broadband Technology Report article, CommScope's E2O solution was featured. John Chamberlain, the director of broadband technology for the office of the CTO at CommScope, said E2O puts coaxial and either microfiber or fiber microduct–capable of having fiber blown into it–within the same sheath.
In our recently Global Enterprise Survey, nearly a third of enterprise IT managers indicated that 40GbE and 100GbE would have a significant impact on their future operations, with a majority citing the emergence of laser-optimized multimode. There was also consensus among the respondents as to their installation strategies for future data centers. Sixty-one percent of operators favored a pre-terminated data center solution as opposed to a field-terminated solution.
Network Products Guide, the information technology industry’s leading technology research and advisory guide, granted our Argus UltraBand base station antenna with internal smart bias tee the Gold Award in the category of Innovations in Mobile and Wireless. The UltraBand antenna system allows operators to migrate to newer wireless services while preparing their networks for future spectrum requirements.
Abandoned and neglected cable systems proved to be an opportunity for Cass Cable TV, Inc., a forward-leaning operator in west-central Illinois with deep roots in the region. Using the BrightPath® Optical Solutions (BOS™) portfolio from CommScope, Cass constructed two new systems and rebuilt another. In so doing, it not only delivered advanced services to underserved markets, but deployed them over a highly reliable infrastructure requiring low maintenance and reduced operational expenditures.
In our competitive world, cost reduction has risen to take its rightful place alongside the titans of quality, innovation and productivity. Today, few can claim that a large portion of their responsibility does not involve the identification or implementation of cost reducing measures. Another challenge is that many measures we institute must not come at a cost to the environment. Those measures must be sustainable. Fortunately, in the energy arena, cost reduction methodology and sustainability can walk side-by-side.
In our recently Global Enterprise Survey, 44 percent of enterprise IT managers pointed to cloud services as a top game-changer and expect that importance to grow. While 21 percent currently rely on cloud technology to run more than half of their applications, 52 percent also believe that by 2017 more than half of their applications will reside off-site in the cloud.
Traditional DAS deployments demand expensive, hard-to-find expertise to design, install, commission, optimize and document. In order to simplify DAS deployment, CommScope now offers the ION-U. It in includes the following features:
At CommScope, we believe that a more knowledgeable wireless network industry enables better decisions that fuel greater success. That’s why we invested nearly two years crafting our new ebook, “Understanding the RF Path”. This eBook is the first in a series of steps CommScope is taking to help educate our industry professionals, from tower hands to corporate executives and everyone in between.
