LONDON -- Expanding on its award winning Andrew SiteRise solution, CommScope is introducing new innovation aimed at reducing installation and maintenance cost, risk and time at the top of cellular network towers. The Andrew SiteRise Standard Interface is intended to simplify the interface between the base station antenna and virtually any remote radio unit (RRU) technology.

Andrew SiteRise, unveiled in 2013, is the world’s first pre-assembled tower top solution, designed to bring factory assembled quality and consistency to the field assembly environment of a wireless network cell site. Andrew SiteRise facilitates the rapid implementation of RRU technology in close physical proximity to the antenna connectors, reducing losses and improving network performance. The SiteRise solution already is proving cost-effective for operators by moving the complex connection, configuration and testing work from the top of the tower to ground level where it can be done in a controlled environment.

The Andrew SiteRise Standard Interface is a new way of connecting an RRU to the base station antenna, using a unique approach not previously utilized for tower top applications. The Standard Interface gives an operator the flexibility of using multiple RRU technologies and frequency bands in a simplified plug-and-play arrangement. Key to this solution is a patented connector technology that provides an essentially passive intermodulation (PIM)-free, blind mate connection.

Re: Needs Video

You have posted two requests for videos on a news site that is linking a Press Release.  

My suggestions are:

1 - Go to the vendor's site

2 - See if the pictures or videos you want are there

3 - If they are not, then call the vendor

Needs Video
I think we really need a video with this article; it does too much 'tell' and not enough 'show'.  

The skeptic in me thinks "a unique approach not previously utilized" might be "only usable in specific situations" and it would really help to see a demonstration of installation.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
