CommScope in pact with Redwood Systems to integrate building-performance lighting

Greentech Lead America: CommScope, a provider of
infrastructure solutions for communications networks, has partnered with
Redwood Systems to integrate building-performance lighting into its Intelligent
Building Infrastructure Solution platform.

Redwood runs its platform over a low-voltage networking
infrastructure, and deploys a fine grain sensor network that measures
temperature, occupancy and light levels.

By integrating Redwood’s platform with CommScope’s
Intelligent Building Infrastructure Solution, facility managers can deploy a
complete intelligent platform that operates many different aspects of their

All of the data from the Redwood network is made
available to facility professionals and they can monitor and manage things such
as security, heating and cooling, computer networks and telecommunications.

“With lighting accounting for as much as 35 percent of
the energy used in commercial buildings, stringent building codes are now
requiring greater energy efficiency from lighting systems. The Redwood
platform’s ability to run over structured cabling and integrate with building
automation systems made them a natural fit as CommScope’s lighting provider of
choice,” said Morgan Kurk, senior vice president, Enterprise Solutions,

By combining Redwood’s
technology with CommScope’s infrastructure solutions and network of experts,
both companies can together provide customers with cutting-edge energy
efficiency and building intelligence applications.

“Redwood’s collaboration with CommScope will help
accelerate our goal of making building-performance lighting a reality for
customers,” said Dave Leonard, chief executive officer, Redwood Systems.

CommScope Intelligent Building Infrastructure Solutions
supports various customer requirements including: one system for voice, data,
video and building automation, better utilization of building cabling assets,
compliance with all existing building cabling standards, open architecture,
multi-vendor support of voice, data, video, LAN and building automation systems
and applications and innovative cable management administration via solutions
such as iPatch and SYSTIMAX VisiPatch.

CommScope recently launched
environmentally friendly CommScope Fuel Cell Cabinet that offers significant
operational cost savings over the life of the cabinet.
