Turnkey in-building wireless solution set to benefit major local telecom providers in providing stable, secure and seamless mobile connections to their customers
(20 July 2017 – Hong Kong) – Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited (“Comba Telecom” or “the Group,” Hong Kong stock code: 2342), a global leading wireless solutions provider, today announced that it has signed a two-year partnership with ACOM Investment Corporation, one of the top three in-building systems (IBS) companies in Vietnam.
In the partnership, Comba Telecom will work as ACOM’s supplier to provide its state-of-the-art IBS including active products - RA-7800 Dual-band Fiber Optic Repeater and RA-7800 II2 and Point of Interface (POI) solution inside high-rise commercial and residential buildings in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and other major cities across the country. The total network coverage will exceed 3,166,300 square meters. These turnkey IBS solutions will enable major Vietnamese telecom operators to improve coverage, frequency bands, and speed of networks across the entire country.
As one of the fastest growing economies in the Asia-Pacific region, and with over 49 million internet users across the country (52% of the overall population) consuming astronomical amounts of data for leisure and business purposes, Vietnam has, in recent years, been aggressively advancing its telecom infrastructure. In particular, following the Vietnamese government's latest pledge to invest US$111.6 million in the ICT sector by 2020, local telecom and IBS providers are ambitious to capitalize on market opportunities to the fullest, opening the door for Comba Telecom to become their strategic partner in helping the nation advance its telecom infrastructure from the in-building sector to outdoor.
By implementing the active products and POI solutions, ACOM can accommodate the growing demands from local telecom providers for ubiquitous and premium network connectivity inside the buildings without compromising operational efficiency thanks to Comba Telecom’s competitive offering. In addition, a dedicated team from Comba Telecom will provide on-site training, trouble-shooting and technical support to ensure always-on connections inside ACOM’s high-rise buildings.
Commenting on the partnership, MR. LE HAI NAM, DEPUTY DIRECTOR of ACOM Investment Corporation said, “As the top IBS solutions provider for high-end buildings in Vietnam, we know our success can only be achieved with strong support from a trustworthy solution partner. We choose to work with Comba Telecom not only because of its cutting-edge solutions and competitive pricing; but also their track-record success with IBS vendors and the team’s rich expertise in providing value-added services such as training, coaching and trouble-shooting to our building owners. This is critical to ensure happy customers and our continued success.”
