CommScope Opens New Enterprise Wireless Solution for U.S. Operator Trials
HICKORY, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
The unique in-building wireless solution that CommScope designed
specifically for business enterprise applications is ready for U.S.
network operator trials now.
unified wireless infrastructure features multi-operator,
multi-technology and multi-band capabilities and utilizes the structured
cabling infrastructure common to most commercial buildings. The structured
cabling architecture makes it easy for IT installers to deploy a
comprehensive, future-ready RF solution. The ION-E can bring almost any
wireless signal to any of its universal access points deployed inside an
enterprise building, enabling Cloud-RAN.
"What once was a niche market-using distributed antenna systems to bring
wireless coverage into hard-to-reach areas-has become a primary focus
for most network operators and increasingly many enterprise IT
organizations," said Matt Melester, senior vice president and general
manager, Distributed Coverage and Capacity Solutions, CommScope. "When
you consider that upwards of 80 percent of mobile data traffic is
indoors, and that businesses continue to adopt Bring
Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, it is little wonder why."
It is predicted that one billion employee-owned smartphones and tablets
will be in use in the enterprise by 2018. Yet only about two percent of
the 30 billion square meters of worldwide commercial real estate is
covered by an in-building mobile wireless system. The ION-E unifies
licensed wireless, power and Gigabit
Ethernet for WiFi (News - Alert) onto one simplified, flexible and scalable
platform. It is future-ready, supporting multiple operators with the
air-interface technologies and frequency bands in use today and tomorrow.
CommScope unveiled the ION-E in February when it first became available
for trials with certain European operators. Trials are successfully
proceeding there according to schedule. To learn more about the ION-E
a meeting with CommScope at CTIA's (News - Alert) Super Mobility Week, September
9-11 in Las Vegas.
