Cable Operators Deploy CommScope BrightPath(TM) System


New Patented Deep-Fiber System Provides Cost-Effective Alternative for New Build Networks

HICKORY, N.C., June 18 / / -- CommScope, Inc. (NYSE:CTV), a world leader in infrastructure solutions for communication networks, today announced it has successfully deployed the BrightPath(TM) system with three major broadband cable operators, and has installations pending with three additional cable customers.

BrightPath(TM) is an innovative deep-fiber distribution system designed to work seamlessly with existing Hybrid-Fiber-Coax (HFC) networks. BrightPath(TM) is fully compatible with existing headend and subscriber equipment, allowing operators to cost-effectively deliver their current suite of analog, digital and interactive services over fiber to the home. BrightPath(TM) can be deployed selectively in new build applications to provide a competitive advantage, with lower upfront cost and maintenance relative to a traditional passive optical network (PON).

"We are pleased to offer this unique solution to our broadband customers," said Jim Hughes, CommScope Executive Vice President, Broadband Sales and Marketing. "We believe BrightPath(TM) provides them with a competitive, deep- fiber solution that utilizes the current DOCSIS-based infrastructure."

The BrightPath(TM) system will be exhibited at the CommScope booth #1466 at the SCTE Cable-Tech Expo convention in Orlando, FL, June 20-22.
