JANUARY 25, 2007 -- CommScope's Residential Cabling Distribution Center provides simultaneous distribution of high-speed data, voice, and video signals throughout the home, multifamily dwelling, or small commercial building.

JANUARY 25, 2007 -- CommScope Inc. (search for CommScope) this week introduced a new professional connectivity system to the residential market with the addition of its Uniprise Residential Network Solutions portfolio.

Because in-home networking now means more than simple access to the Internet, CommScope's newest product, the Residential Cabling Distribution Center, provides simultaneous distribution of high-speed data, voice, and video signals throughout the home, multifamily dwelling, or small commercial building.

"The innovative Residential Network Solution features our revolutionary structured home and small office cabling system that we believe will suit the needs of simple to highly complex residential systems," asserts Mark Peterson, senior vice president,enterprise global marketing, CommScope. "Combining our advanced engineering with a structured cabling approach that supports virtually all standards and vendor-independent applications, people can now experience the same networking abilities at home that they use in their offices."

CommScope says its Residential Network Solution supports a fully incorporated applications environment for current and emerging communication and video entertainment. Data, voice, and video signals converge in the residential cabling distribution center and are then distributed to individual room outlets, allowing cable, satellite, PCs, printers, and fax machines to work in concert using a single sophisticated system.

The cabling distribution center supports both basic and enhanced systems. The basic system is predesigned for voice and data applications, while the enhanced system provides flexibility for removing modules and allows plug-and-play simplicity for both copper and fiber applications.

In addition, an eight-port switch gives users the ability to network up to seven computers. Other features include complete automation capabilities and central control of multiple integrated home communication and video entertainment applications, including telephone, video, data, CATV, satellite, audio distribution, HDTV, cable modem, and even security systems. The multimedia system supports Cat 5e, Cat 6, and fiber connectivity while meeting EIA/TIA 60 CEBus and the TIA/EIA 570-B Residential Wiring Standard. The fiber-based system accepts all connector types -- SC, ST, and LC -- and is easily upgradeable with flexible patch panel modularity, says the company. Added security is available with an optional locking kit.
