In a recent Youtube video, Todd Schlekeway, executive director of the National Association of Tower Erectors [NATE] interviews CommScope's steel products line manager, Dale Heath. The interview focuses on a class Heath is teaching during the upcoming NATE 2013 Conference & Exposition (February 18-21) -- of which CommScope is a Gold Sponsor -- entitled Proper LTE Installations.

"The one thing we've been concerned about from a steel products manufacturing aspect, is [determining] the proper use of the mounts," explains CommScope's Heath. "With LTE [installations], we're talking about adding heavier remote radios, heavier antennas -- as well as junction boxes and fiber boxes -- and all this weight is going onto existing structures with existing antennas and technologies. And you can't put this much load onto a structure that wasn't designed for it."

The class is aimed at tower technicians, tower owners, and carriers.
