India Operator Purchases Comba’s Base Station Ancillary Equipment

NEW DELHI, India, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited (“Comba” or “the Group”, Hong Kong stock code: 2342), a leading wireless enhancement solutions provider announced that it has successfully secured an agreement with a leading operator in India to supply wireless telecommunications equipment as part of a rollout of its 3G network in licensed circles across the nation. Under the agreement, Comba is supplying base station ancillary equipment including RF filters, diplexers, tower mounted amplifiers (TMA), and other products in the multi-million US dollar deal.

The solution will enable the operator to build out the network cost-effectively and rapidly. Comba’s RF filter plays a key role in improving system performance and facilitating co-location of services through the filtering of noise and unwanted signals as well as protecting the system from overly strong signals. The deployment of the Comba TMA further improves system performance by increasing base station receiver sensitivity and enables lower noise figure. This in turn will reduce dropped calls, improve call quality and data transmission rates – all essential for enhancing end-user experience.

Mr. Rajiv Girotra, Managing Director of Comba Telecom India said, “We are delighted to be selected as the supplier for the rollout of 3G networks across India. Comba overcame intense competition for this project and was selected on the basis of product performance and quality after exhaustive benchmarking against other vendor products. In addition, our outstanding track record, robust technical support and service capabilities were also considered in the final decision by the operator”

Mr. Simon Yeung, Chief Operating & Strategy Officer for Comba’s international operations said, “India has always been a very important market for the Group and this agreement marks a new milestone for us in light of the recent security concerns of the government. By working closely with the customer and the relevant government bodies, Comba fully complied with the regulations and gained approval to import the products into India and will continue to do so for the future.”

India’s 3G license auction concluded in May 2010, bringing a total number of 3G spectrum owners to nine operators across various circles nationwide in both rural and urban areas. As such, network build outs have been underway in earnest with some operators targeting early 2011 for commercial launch of services. By deploying Comba’s products in their networks, operators will enjoy cost-effective solutions to improve system performance and aid rapid rollout.

In addition, the agreement further affirms Comba’s position as the global leader in the area of tower mounted amplifier technology. According to industry experts at ABI Research, Comba Telecom is ranked as the number one vendor of TMAs by market share in their recent report “Tower Mounted Amplifiers for Mobile Wireless and Cellular Base Stations”.
