Use of proceeds
I know CommScope needs the money to pay off its big debt. But I'm wondering how else it might use the IPO proceeds. In particular, I'm curious to see how CommScope plans to use the funds to invest more in CCAP equipment and other next-gen cable hardware. And does it still have amitions to be the new number three player in the cable tech market?

Commscope what a journey
Commscope as the cover article indicates is pretty well positioned from a broadband infrastructure prospective feeding the operator, government, and enterprise spaces.

The historical evolution via acquistions and mergers are the reason for this. Some of us long-term wireless folks surely remember names such as Allen Telecom, Decibel Products, and the Andrew brand. There are also the Commscope acquisitions prior to the Commscope/Andrew merger. 

Within the DAS Distributed Antenna System and Small Cell space competition has heated up with competitors such as Corning Mobile access, TE-Connectivity, SOLiD, and recently the Teko brand making some noise in the Northeast providing a solid Hybrid DAS with great lead times.

At the end of the day Commscope has a pretty strong total solution package which rivals most of its competitors in the broadband space which should keep it amongst the elite broadband infrastructure suppliers.


By the way both of the big two (Verizon and AT&T) Tier operators are recipents of many of the Commscope tower products; AT&T probably more so due to Verizon for years not wanting anything on the top of the tower versus the bottom.

Fiber feeding RRH Remote Radio Heads is the common trend these days.

Re: Good news - the stock hasn't dipped
Any clues wich operators are using their antenna gear? Seems like the tower-top deployment stuff was pretty hip.
