CommScope Introduces Wireless Rapid Deployment Unit for On-Demand Wireless Connectivity

Powerful high-speed solution for immediate wireless connectivity anywhere

CommScope recently announced the Wireless Rapid Deployment Unit (RDU) for quickly delivering a safe, reliable, and high-speed Wi-Fi, or other wireless networks.

The RDU was developed by the CommScope Professional Services Team in response to a growing demand for a mobile Wi-Fi solution providing ad hoc connectivity in a range of environments—including concerts, parades, pop-up medical facilities, emergency response centers, and remote learning and access sites.

The solution uses RUCKUS T610 outdoor access points and a telescopic mast to deliver cost-effective, carrier-grade Wi-Fi in a small, forklift-ready 4’x4’ footprint. The RDU is equipped with wheels so that, once delivered to a site, it can be easily towed or maneuvered into position.  The mast can readily accept other devices to support LTE or IoT applications. The RDU is powered by an on-board generator and can use a variety of backhaul methods including fiber, ethernet, LTE or DOCSIS. It is in full production, with CommScope factories and partners ready to meet demand in the United States, Canada and U.S. territories in the Caribbean. The RDU will ship to additional regions in the near future.

Chirag Trivedi, vice president, Global Professional Services of CommScope’s Broadband Networks business, said:

“We’ve successfully deployed customized versions of the RDU, and now we’re excited to bring its capabilities to a broader range of customers. Our Professional Services team designed this best-of-breed solution, which leverages CommScope’s technology and scale to broaden the frontiers of high-speed connectivity.”

CommScope’s Professional Services team is available to ship, preconfigure, customize, deploy, connect, and centrally host the CommScope RDU to deliver on-demand wireless services.

  • White Glove Delivery: Shipping, unpacking, setup, placement, removal of packing materials ·
