CommScope makes technology easier for disabled

CommScope has made possible donation and deployment of network infrastructure to the Alder Springs Deaf and Blind Community in Morganton, N.C., the company said.

Alder Springs is an independent non-profit residential community designed for the unique needs of deaf and blind seniors located near the North Carolina School for the Deaf (NCSD). It was developed and is owned by the NCSD at Morganton Foundation, Inc., a private supporting organization, and is funded entirely by private donations, grants and loans.

GigaSPEED XL was deployed in the Community and connects innovative sensing technology for those without sight or hearing, for example an alert to notify a resident of puddling water on the kitchen or bathroom floor. The GigaSPEED XL solution also supports the facility´s intelligent lighting technology.
