Andrew Corp., a communications equipment and systems company, has completed its acquisition of Celiant Corp. in a transaction worth $470 million. Andrew intends to utilize engineering capabilities and single- and multi-carrier power amplifier product portfolio to enhance its power amplifiers.

Andrew will add Celiant's products, including Celiant's HELIAX coaxial cable and antennas, to its traditional product line. This will expand Andrew's range of subsystem solutions for TDMA, GSM and CDMA wireless standards and emerging 3G technologies.

The two companies will also merge their engineering R&D which will result to a combined R&D budget of about $75 million and intellectual property including more than 700 patents. Andrew will continue to utilize its 74 manufacturing, distribution, engineering, and sales office locations throughout the world.
