HICKORY, N.C. – CommScope (NASDAQ: COMM) announced it has been selected by leading neutral host service provider JTOWER to be its partner in providing network operators with greater access to shared broadband infrastructure. Through the partnership, JTOWER will provide outdoor infrastructure sharing for network operators using CommScope's RF technologies and solutions such as antennas, filters (duplexers) and coaxial cables.

Maximizing the potential and cost-efficiency of 5G

The promise of autonomous vehicles, augmented reality, 8K video quality and enhanced cybersecurity that will run on 5G networks is fueling expansion across Japan. As operators focus on pragmatic implementations of 5G networks, they will need to determine which type of technology will maximize its potential.

For example, massive MIMO substantially increases spectral efficiency to deliver more network capacity and wider coverage. However, operators will have to determine if the extra costs and real-world power requirements associated with active MIMO deployments are justified, or if an antennae configuration will suffice.

Choosing optimal technology to speed 5G rollouts

JTOWER's tower sharing business will provide shared access to CommScope's Mosaic and HELIAX® products to network operators. The trusted HELIAX solution portfolio has expanded from coaxial offerings to include fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) and cluster connector solutions like the ones being integrated into JTOWER's infrastructure.
