Comba Telecom Delivers Wireless Connectivity for Regional Airport's 10.8M Passengers in Argentina

(11 May 2016, BUENOS AIRES, Argentina)Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited (“Comba Telecom” or “the Group”, Hong Kong stock code: 2342), a global leading wireless solutions provider, is seeing heavy growth in the demand for its in-building solutions. This is in line with the projected growth of the global in-building wireless solutions market, set to be worth USD 16.71 billion in 2020. In fact, Comba Telecom was recently commissioned by a major regional operator in Argentina where it delivered high quality wireless solution to the nation's busiest international airport, which caters to an annual traffic of over 10.8 million people.

Mr. Patrik Westfalk, Managing Director of the Caribbean and Latin America (CALA) region at Comba said, "In-building solutions have gained importance in light of the heavy proliferation of 4G roll-outs around the world. Today's smart phone user expects an anywhere-anytime connection. As users we want mobile data delivered to us instantly and in the most seamless manner possible, which is why mobile operators are turning to in-building solutions. This is definitely the trend we are seeing in the Latin American region, where in-building solutions are being implemented in several high-density public hotspots."

Comba Telecom's in-building solutions, which feature distributed antenna systems (DAS), are capable of handling voice and data traffic competently. This ensures efficient coverage in in-building environments, which is why the solution has become one of Comba's top earners in the region and has been deployed at several high-density destinations such as international airports.

Mr. Gabriel Monllor, Director of the Hispano-American Region at Comba commented, "Typical consumer behaviour at an airport spans making and receiving calls or messages, updating social media pages, and using apps. Top-notch voice and data coverage for each and every person is a must, in spite of the complex's high visitor density. Active DAS solutions can manage this increased traffic."

To provide the international airport in Argentina with DAS solutions, Comba Telecom collaborated with its local partner Globo Group S.A. from Buenos Aires to design and implement the in-building solution, which will support different technologies such as 2G, 3G, and the latest LTE 4G within the structure.

Mr. Marcelo Medano of Globo Group S.A. said, "High-quality cellular data and voice coverage definitely plays a key role in ensuring that visitors of any public spot have a good experience. We have observed Comba's user-friendly solutions in action, and they have always met the highest of standards."

Comba Telecom has provided its DAS solutions to several high-profile locations in the Caribbean and Latin America region, including structures in Argentina, Mexico, Columbia, Dominican Republic and Chile. Additionally, 8 out 12 stadiums for the 2014 international football tournament held in Brazil were outfitted with Comba's solutions to ensure that the network capacity was enough to support the capacity needs of thousands of football fans.
