CommScope (NASDAQ:COMM) is expanding its PartnerPRO Network by bringing in members of TE Connectivity's similar Network Design and Installation (ND&I) program. CommScope acquired TE Connectivity's Broadband Network Solutions (BNS) business last August.
By the time the integration is completed, which is scheduled for the close of 2016, the PartnerPRO Network is expected to almost double in size. The PartnerPRO Network consists of CommScope certified local installers, distributors and integrators in 88 countries. As part of the integration, the BNS ND&I program will be discontinued on Jan. 1, 2017.
"It is our goal to integrate thousands of former BNS partners into the PartnerPRO Network without sacrificing the experience our customers have come to expect," said Stephen Kowal, senior vice president, Global Partners, CommScope. "We are excited to develop a formal relationship with the thousands of BNS ND&I partners coming into the PartnerPRO Network."
