CommScope has signed an agreement to acquire Argus Technologies, a producer of antenna products for wireless applications. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Argus, headquartered in Bella Vista, New South Wales, Australia, provides high technology antennas for base stations, stadiums and venues, and other wireless applications.

CommScope said the sale will allow the firm to broaden its antenna portfolio, deepen its research and development capabilities, strengthen its global market presence and accelerate its growth in the wireless market.

“The demand for bandwidth and growth in network traffic continues to drive wireless carriers, enterprises and broadband service providers to invest in communications infrastructure,” the firm said in a release.

“Wireless subscriber growth in developing markets, the adoption of 3G and 4G services in more mature markets, and network coverage needs inside buildings, tunnels and other hard-to-reach locations are key growth catalysts for the wireless market.”
