CommScope, a provider of infrastructure solutions for communication networks, has reportedly introduced new Nano amplifier to the Signal Vision line of subscriber drop products.
According to company officials, the Signal Vision Nano amplifier offers easy installation in a compact network interface device, or “NID,” boxes. It comes in Nano-compact aluminium plated housing with brass F-ports, that claims to meet or exceed all SCTE requirements as well as the harsh demands of an outside plant environment.
The Nano amplifier is compatible with technologies needed to drive today`s high-speed voice, video and data networks using 15 dB of gain in the forward path and a passive reverse path, company officials said.
“CommScope continuously leverages advances in technology to enhance products and
solutions for our customers,” Neil Phillips, vice president, Signal Vision, said. “These advances to our Signal Vision product portfolio have made it possible for us to offer a reduced size amplifier to improve ease of installation without sacrificing performance.”
CommScope offers network infrastructure systems delivering a complete end-to-end physical layer system, including cables and connectivity, enclosures, intelligent software and network design services, for business enterprise applications.
CommScope is also known for its Andrews brands of radio frequency subsystem solutions, as well as SYSTIMAX and Uniprise brands of network infrastructure solutions. 

Recently, the company introduced a new multimedia over coax alliance, or “MoCA,” amplifier to its Signal Vision line of subscriber drop products for cable operators. The MoCA-compatible networking components are in great demand because they facilitate services like download on-demand programming, DVR and in-home video/data sharing, company officials said.
