HICKORY, N.C. -- To answer the growing demand from business enterprises for full-scale intelligent infrastructure solutions, CommScope has acquired Redwood Systems, Inc., an industry leader in LED lighting solutions and integrated sensor networks for data centers and buildings.

The terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed. CommScope funded the acquisition from cash on hand and funds available under its revolving credit facility.

Redwood Systems, a privately-held lighting performance solutions provider with offices in the US and UK, is a leader in light emitting diode, or LED, technology solutions that help facilitate lower cost and higher-performing workplaces. Redwood developed what is believed to be the world’s first smart building platform that powers and controls lights with a high-density sensor grid. This platform provides energy savings that typically average 75 percent improvement over traditional fluorescent lighting systems for office buildings and 90 percent improvement for data centers, with granular monitoring of space utilization, temperature and power consumption. This award-winning approach uses patented networking technology and low-voltage direct current, or DC, architecture for low cost, highly reliable and scalable installation.
