Andrew Solutions, the CommScope, Inc. division that is a global leader in wireless communications systems and products, has been named In-Building Wireless Vendor of the Year in this year’s Telecom Asia Readers’ Choice Awards. The award was given based on nominations from a panel of more than 60 wireless industry analysts, consultants and service providers as part of an annual event recognizing the innovations and contributions to the industry of the top telecom vendors operating in Asia Pacific. “Building off of its years of after-market indoor wireless solutions expertise, Andrew Solutions upped its game this year by helping CommScope launch its Wired for Wireless Solution, which targets the indoor coverage issue during the construction phase of the building,” said Telecom Asia global technology editor John Tanner. “By helping customers plot out indoor coverage as part of the building’s design, Wired for Wireless not only promises more cost-efficient wireless coverage, but also a wireless infrastructure designed to ensure optimal coverage regardless of the outside network’s technology evolution.” The Wired for Wireless™ Solution provides owners and developers of new buildings and campuses with the infrastructure necessary—in advance—to eliminate weak or blocked signal areas from the outset and prepare them for better wireless coverage over the structure’s lifetime. By implementing the Wired for Wireless Solution during the construction phase, customers reduce the installation and design costs of a wireless system, eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming radio frequency (RF) site surveys, and protect wireless performance inside the building from future changes to the outdoor network. Also in 2010, CommScope’s Andrew expanded its customer support for notable coverage and capacity projects in the Asia-Pacific region, including continued work on China’s high speed railways, wiring up part of the forthcoming Taiyuan-Zhongwei-Yinchuan line, a digital train radio system for a metro network in Australia and a TETRA network for mission critical security operations to a major casino in Macau’s Cotai Strip.
“We are extremely proud to receive this Vendor of the Year Award from Telecom Asia, a leading observer of the telecommunications industry, whose readers are some of the most experienced and knowledgeable in the industry,” said Navin Vohra, vice president of sales, Asia Pacific, for Andrew Solutions. “With mobile devices becoming as indispensable for business operations as electricity and plumbing are for building operations, we believe the broad range of coverage and capacity solutions from CommScope’s Andrew is the most sensible way to prepare a building or campus for the advanced wireless requirements that people expect, today and tomorrow.”The Andrew Solutions coverage and capacity portfolio includes ION™ distributed antennas systems, Node series repeaters, HELIAX® coaxial cable, RADIAX® leaky cables, CellMax® indoor antennas and other passive components.
