MINNEAPOLIS -- ADC (NASDAQ: ADCT; www.adc.com) today announced that its FlexWave™ Universal Radio Head (URH) systems will deliver seamless cellular services for capacity crowds inside the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul on September 1-4, 2008. In addition to the convention center, ADC systems also have been deployed at the adjacent Saint Paul River Centre and Roy Wilkins Auditorium. The nine URH systems will ensure reliable, consistent wireless voice and data services for convention visitors throughout the facilities. ADC supplied the FlexWave URH systems to NewPath Networks, a wireless neutral host company building the network for the convention sites.

“Supporting tens of thousands of visitors to the Republican National Convention with clear and consistent wireless service is an extremely important project for us,” said Mike Kavanagh, president and CEO of NewPath Networks. “We selected ADC’s FlexWave URH system because it allows us to blanket a large indoor area like the Xcel Energy Center with multi-carrier coverage in a very cost-effective manner.”
