CommScope has signed an agreement to acquire Argus Technologies, a producer of antenna solutions for wireless applications. The terms of the agreement are not being disclosed. The acquisition is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of 2011.

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

The acquisition will enable CommScope to broaden its antenna solutions portfolio, deepen its research and development capabilities, strengthen its global market presence and accelerate its growth in the wireless market.

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