Andrew, the CommScope Inc. division specializing in communications products and systems, has won NTT DoCoMo Inc.’s Best Partner Award for its outstanding telecommunications network infrastructure support during the past fiscal year. The award was presented at the NTT DoCoMo Partners Day 2008 Ceremony in Tokyo, Japan, attended by more than 200 people, representing 63 companies.

Akira Kawada, country manager and president, Andrew Japan, accepted the award on behalf of Andrew. Four awards were presented during the event to recognize the top companies from among all of NTT DoCoMo’s global and domestic suppliers. Andrew is the only company based outside of Japan that won an award under the Network Segment category, with the other three going to domestic handset companies.

“We are greatly honored to be the only overseas company to be recognized by NTT DoCoMo,” said Kawada. “Acknowledged as one of the most prestigious names in the telecom industry, NTT DoCoMo prides itself on the high standards and quality of its work and, of course, they expect no less in return. Thus, this award is recognition of not only Andrew’s quality, but also the hard work and dedication our people have put in towards meeting and exceeding those expectations.”

Andrew was nominated for the award primarily for its strong track record in delivering reliable, high quality and well-designed products that incorporate state-of-the-art technologies. This award is the fourth such honor received by Andrew in the past two years for its excellence in supporting customers in Asia. The company has also been named best partner by ZTE in China, Samsung in South Korea and Globe in the Philippines.
