Comba Telecom Supplies Wireless Solutions for 2014 Sochi Winter Games Venues

Enables 2G and 3G Wireless Communications With Multi-Band DAS Network Infrastructure Equipment at Bolshoy Ice Dome and Iceberg Skating Palace Stadiums

MOSCOW and HONG KONG -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited ("Comba Telecom" or "the Group") (HKSE: 2342), a leading global wireless enhancement solutions provider, announced it has completed the first phase of a multi-stage project to supply wireless enhancement solutions at venues hosting the 2014 Winter Games events to be held in Sochi, Russia.

In the initial phase of the project, Comba Telecom worked with the official mobile partner to the Games and supplied multi-system, multi-band (2G/3G) distributed antenna system (DAS) in addition to installation, commissioning, training and maintenance services. In addition, the DAS supplied is upgradeable to 4G LTE and scalable to the mobile partner requirements. Comba Telecom's equipment has been deployed at a number of venues located in the heart of the games center including the Bolshoy Ice Dome and the Iceberg Skating Palace hosting the ice hockey and figure skating events, respectively. As the project moves forward, Comba Telecom will be expanding the scope of solutions and the number of venues hosting the Games.

Comba Telecom's DAS is a point-to-multipoint, RF-over-fiber solution that expands wireless network coverage and capacity by extending mobile services from existing base stations for large venues, thus enabling a common system that can be shared across multiple operators. Therefore, the DAS helps operators to realize efficiencies in CAPEX and OPEX for new and additional networks without the need for replacing existing fiber and antenna systems. The modular feature of the DAS enables easy expansion of capacity and coverage by installing multiple DAS instead of deploying additional base stations.

Mr. Brian Donohue, Vice President of Comba Telecom Systems International Limited and General Manager of the Group's European operations said, "The worldwide prestige of the Winter Games in Sochi requires a global solution provider that focuses on the operators' current and future needs and we are honored to be selected as one of the providers. Through our solution, wireless network operators in Russia will be able to seamlessly manage the increased demand in network traffic during the events, ensuring that spectators, journalists and athletes alike enjoy uninterrupted coverage as they move throughout the facilities."

Mr. Donohue added, "We are especially pleased to be implementing this project and this marks a new milestone for Comba Telecom's operations in Russia. In fact, we have recently expanded our project portfolio in this region with a successful win for implementing a solution at the Moscow Domodeovo Airport in Russia which is currently underway at this moment in time. Overall, Comba Telecom has a wealth of experience that gives us an edge in these projects, including the Summer Games 2008 in Beijing, Metrô Rio de Janeiro, Singapore Marina Costal Expressway, Galaxy Macau resort and casino complex, Beijing-Tianjin High Speed Railway, Taiwan Kaohsiung Metro, Armenia's Yerevan Subway amongst many others."

Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
