(7 June 2011, Hong Kong) – Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited (“Comba” or “the Group”, Hong Kong stock code: 2342), a leading wireless enhancement solutions provider, announced that it had been selected by a major operator in the Middle East to supply wireless equipment for its LTE network build out in the region.

Under the terms of the agreement, Comba provided a number of LTE equipment including indoor and base station antennas for deployment in both indoor and outdoor environments for the network. In addition, Comba also supplied 3G antennas to enable a ubiquitous wireless coverage experience for the mobile operator’s customers.

At the initial phase of the project, Comba’s LTE equipment was subjected to rigorous tests and trials by the operator. Convinced by the product features and performance in addition to Comba’s service and support facilities, the operator expanded the order to include hundreds of LTE antennas and thousands of 3G antennas.

Based in Dubai, Ms. Charlene Chong, General Manager for Comba’s Middle East operations said, “We are delighted to be part of such an important project. Besides the performance and value proposition of our products, we believe that Comba’s superior support, delivery and customer-focused service orientation were key factors in our win.” She further added, “Comba is involved in a number of LTE trials in the region and the fact that market analysts are forecasting LTE adoption in the Middle East to be one of the fastest in the world with a higher penetration rate adds further luster to this project and the other regional LTE trials. It is an honor for Comba to help the region move onto the next generation of wireless communications.”

Ms. Carol Ye, Deputy General Manager for Comba’s Antenna and Sub-Systems division said, “One of the key components in the suite of LTE equipment is our base station antennas. Comba’s LTE antenna supports multiple protocols including 3G and LTE 2.6GHz for mobile broadband connectivity in a single integrated design for efficiencies in footprint and performance. In this case, we delivered these antennas and other LTE equipment under very tight time-lines and fully met the operator’s deployment schedules without compromising on quality expectations. We are delighted with the trust that the operator has placed in Comba and will continue to improve and upgrade the current LTE offerings for Middle East and beyond.”
