The solution allows operators to maximize their network and respond quickly to changing market conditions and high-volume demand. The portfolio comprises new Hardened Terminals, Compact Closures, and SEC and SRC Specialty Closures. CommScope will roll out additional NOVUX fiber solutions as the portfolio expands.

The NOVUX SRC 100 Closure and Hardened Terminals are currently available globally. The SEC 100 Closures and CSC 100 Compact Closures are planned for rollout across multiple regions in the coming months.

CommScope is pursuing strategies that are focused on reducing operational costs and optimizing the overall cost structure. The CommScope NEXT program is expected to drive growth, optimize business processes and unlock shareholder value.
