CommScope is one of the world's premier network infrastructure providers, enabling many of the top-performing networks used by more than 12,000 employees in 100 countries. The company’s forward-thinking approach to technological development and customer service has put it at the forefront of every wireless technology evolution.
For the last 21 years, the team at TÜV SÜD Italy has worked in partnership with CommScope, supporting it with a wide range of test, compliance and certification services. This includes EMC compliance and CE marking support, as well as vibration and environmental testing services.
Carla Annovazzi, Reliability Manager at CommScope, explains: “Our core business goal is to help our customers to build faster and better networks, and TÜV SÜD plays a vital role in delivering this. CommScope’s reputation for excellence means that our customers expect the very best products. The team at TÜV SÜD not only helps us to ensure that we are compliant with the mandatory directives and standards, they also verify the quality and reliability of our products.”
TÜV SÜD currently supports a broad range of CommScope products, including tower-mounted amplifiers, passive filters, duplexers and triplexers for both GSM and LTE networks.
Carla continues: “As our products are mainly intended for outdoor applications, it is imperative that they are thoroughly tested so that they can survive in a harsh environment and meet our clients’ expectations of quality and reliability. We are assured of a high level of dedication and professionalism from the TÜV SÜD team, which is backed up by their global reputation for in-depth knowledge and a first-class test and compliance service.”
TÜV SÜD’s 10m semi-anechoic EMC chamber at its test laboratory in Scarmagno enables the team to deliver a rapid full-service testing solution. With a typical two-day turnaround for a full test and final report, TÜV SÜD effectively supports CommScope in its mission to minimise time to market for new networking products.
“The team at TÜV SÜD has been extremely flexible in supporting us with product development and compliance, which is why we’ve worked with them for more than 20 years. Having such a strong and flexible partnership with them means that the TÜV SÜD team is like an extension of our in-house resource. Their fast and reliable service has enabled us to evolve our innovative products and quickly meet the demands of new directives and standards so that we can both minimise costs and stay ahead of our competitors,” concludes Carla.
