of the benefits of shaping the future is that we have a clear view of the
incredible progress we’re making in all areas of communications networking. Connected
devices have changed how we all live. Connecting to information—no matter what
its form—via the internet is now crucial. And, while the final connection
to the consumer is almost always wireless, behind every great wireless network
is a great wired network. The intersection of technologies is where
CommScope lives - and where we’ve always excelled.
CLICK TO TWEET: CommScope's new COO Bruce McClelland explains how innovation will help on the path toward 5G.
the wireless network is macro cell or small cell… Whether the spectrum is
licensed or unlicensed… Whether the wired network is fiber, copper or
coax... We’re connecting millions of devices to the content and services that
people crave most. And, we’ve created an end-to-end powerhouse with the
technical savvy and expertise to enable it all.
those of us who’ve been in the business for decades, this is incredibly
now, with ARRIS part of CommScope, the new work begins.
- Early 5G trials are turning into deployments. 5G is ultimately a set
of building blocks, representing a variety of different technologies. It will
create more bandwidth, higher speeds, more capacity, better coverage, and improved
spectral efficiency. At CommScope, we have an incredible number of
combinations in this new toolbox.
- Innovative hybrid networks are creating new
price/performance points for cost-conscious customers. One of the most creative
network architectures we’re working with today is one that uses unlicensed
spectrum with private LTE protocols. We have more than 20
successful trials underway, with more pending. The combination is proving
to be especially effective for in-building wireless networks -- which are
a particularly thorny use case — as well as for extensions of
cellular carriers’ macro networks.
continues to move at a breakneck speed. We're enabling new capabilities
that weren’t possible even a few years ago. We’re creating breakthroughs
in our homes, at our workplaces, and everywhere in between. And
experientially, residences are behaving more like enterprises while more and
more enterprises offer the comforts of home.
continuing to be out in front on innovations — and adapting our business models
to accelerate that work — is vital to our long-term success.
now, CommScope can bring deep expertise to every wireless, fixed broadband, and
hybrid technology the world is exploring — and we’re leading the creation
of many of them.
all of this will take incredible prowess from our technologists and great
collaboration with our partners and customers. The good news: We have a long
track record of success doing just that. The combined talent of our new
company with the scale to invest and the global channels to market, give us an
extraordinary advantage. We’ve already solved some of the biggest
challenges that people thought were impossible.
So, let’s go shape the future. Again.
