CommScope acquires Redwood Systems

CommScope has acquired Redwood Systems, a provider of LED lighting solutions and sensor networks for data centers and buildings

The acquisition is expected to strengthen CommScope’s presence in the intelligent building infrastructure solutions market.

The company did not share financial details.

CommScope funded the acquisition from cash on hand and funds available under its revolving credit facility.

Redwood Systems’ smart building platform provides energy savings that typically average 75 percent improvement over traditional fluorescent lighting systems for office buildings and 90 percent improvement for data centers.

With upcoming enhancements to optimize its operation over twisted pair cabling, the Redwood Systems platform can be deployed over CommScope’s readily available standardized structured cabling infrastructure.

This can help CommScope’s data center and intelligent building customers maximize their investment in cabling infrastructure and move towards more integrated IT and building systems, thus reducing installation costs and ongoing operational expenses.

“By adding Redwood’s innovative solutions, we expect to better meet our customers’ desire for improved energy efficiency and provide a cost-effective platform for enabling truly intelligent buildings,” said Kevin St. Cyr, senior vice president of Enterprise Solutions, CommScope.

Integrating with CommScope will provide Redwood Systems customers with infrastructure management software and cabling solutions to help meet their unique needs in implementing efficient asset management solutions.
