CommScope releases RF Path e-book

Monday, 14 January, 2013

CommScope has released a nearly 200-page e-book, authored by many of its engineers and technical directors.

Titled Understanding the RF Path, the book reports on complicated technical issues from the wireless communications industry, informing wireless engineers, business and marketing professionals, and other industry players about the state and evolution of wireless networks and infrastructure.

Understanding the RF Path brings the wealth of knowledge about wireless networks that exists inside CommScope out into the world,” said Philip Sorrells, V-P, Strategic Marketing, CommScope. “This book has enough technical information in it to satisfy engineers while translating jargon into language the average industry person can understand. Our hope is that this book will preserve and advance knowledge across the wireless industry and beyond.”

The e-book sheds light on the following topics:

  • History and evolution of wireless communications.
  • Cell site construction and network planning.
  • Technology basics of antennas, remote radio heads, transmission lines and other RF path components.
  • Solutions for co-siting, passive intermodulation (PIM), network reliability and site monitoring.
  • Specific applications such as distributed antenna systems, back-up power, microwave backhaul and network protection.

“We think there is something for everyone in this book, from a high-level view of the wireless communication industry down to some nitty-gritty physics formulas,” said Sorrells. “Publishing Understanding the RF Path is part of our ongoing effort - including the CommScope Infrastructure Academy and Andrew Institute - to educate industry players and promote best practices at the cell site and with other technology applications.”

The e-book is available in digital format for viewing online and as an app. It can also be downloaded in PDF form and shared through social media. CommScope plans for it to be the first in a book series about various communications industry topics.
