    Join Mobile Europe and CommScope for this webinar as we look at modernising networks and best practices for simplifying the top of the tower

    In this webinar, you will learn about:

    In order to meet exploding data demands and increasingly challenging customer expectations, every network operator must continually work to update and modernise their network. There are many complex technical challenges when modernising a network. To effectively address these challenges, network operators need to know the best strategy for optimising their current infrastructure and adapting to these new technologies.

    For example, how do you make changes to existing tower components to meet new critical needs of remote radio unit (RRU) technology without overloading the tower? As importantly, how do you ensure adequate fiber capacity that will make your network future-ready, while still reining in CapEx and OpEx costs? 

    This webinar will cover CommScope’s FTTA Turnkey Solution and the key enabling technologies including:

    • HELIAX® FiberFeed™ connectivity
    • Ultraband™ antenna and filter systems
    • HELIAX® Sureflex™ cable assemblies and accessories
    • Custom mounts 
    • Andrew® SiteRise™ pre-assembled tower tops
    • Andrew® SiteRise™ Standard Interface
