CommScope Simplifies FTTA (Fiber To The Antenna) Networks

by Nate Johnson on September 11, 2014

With rapid modernization of wireless networks and mobile network access (and a long-standing proliferation of acronyms), it can be difficult to stay up to date on emerging systems, especially for those who do not work everyday in what has traditionally been considered niche markets -such as wireless systems. Fiber to the antenna network systems are an example of one piece of converged network technologies which are expanding to encompass much of building and datacenter infrastructure. Don't let your customers networks fall behind the wireless breakout curve!
