Andrew Partners Raylex for Cellular Network Expansion in Chile

November 17, 2008

Andrew, the CommScope Inc. division, and its representative in Chile, Raylex, have signed a broad cooperation agreement with Entel PCS, one of the mobile telephony leaders in Chile, with regard to expanding the operator’s cellular network in that country.

Under the multi-year agreement between the companies, Andrew is designated a principal supplier, via its Chilean representative Raylex, of wireless equipment for deployment in Entel PCS’s network, including antennas, coaxial cables, software tools, and repeater solutions for indoor and outdoor use. Andrew and Raylex will also train Entel PCS engineers in Chile and abroad.

This agreement represents a step forward in the development of the telecommunications market in Chile and reaffirms the success of the companies’ collaboration, according to Sylvio Peres, Andrew’s vice president of sales for Latin America. “Andrew and its local partner Raylex are proud to continue and expand their support of Entel PCS’s efforts in the growing and important Chilean market,” Peres said. “As a global leader in wireless technology with extensive experience in providing local support throughout this region, Andrew’s cooperation in sharing technology innovation, training, and logistical support will be available to provide significant benefits to Entel PCS as it expands its network and ability to serve customers in Chile.”
