Comba Telecom completes in-building wireless project in Dubai

Comba has deployed a turnkey in-building wireless solution for Dubai’s new architectural landmark, the Dubai Frame

Hong Kong-based wireless solution provider Comba Telecom Systems announced it has deployed a turnkey in-building wireless solution for the Dubai Frame, a new architectural landmark in Dubai.

Comba said that the new wireless solution enables multi-operator, multi-band and multi-technology wireless network services in Dubai’s new attraction.

The 50-story Dubai Frame measures 150 meters high and 93 meters wide; more than 2 million tourists are expected to visit the site annually. A museum on its lower floor connects the bases of the two main towers and the tops are connected by an observation deck.

The in-building wireless solution of Comba Telecom provides a network system with an area of approximately 4,500 square meters. In this project, panel antennas, omni antennas, cable trays and splitters were installed throughout the Dubai Frame with a wide range of frequency bands embracing 2G/3G/4G for G900, U2100, U900, L2100 and L1800 from the ground floor, along the two towers to the observation deck.

“We are honored to be selected as the solution provider for the Dubai Frame. In addition to hardware, Comba Telecom also provided professional services for network design, project management, drive test and benchmarking and maintenance for the entire project,” said Hazim Al-rawi, general manager, Middle East for Comba Telecom.

“Mobile connections are growing rapidly. Users demand on a strong wireless coverage with robust data networks to allow them to access the internet anytime and anywhere,” said Annabel Huo, president of Comba Telecom International, in a statement.

Last month, Comba Telecom deployed a distributed antenna system (DAS) solution for Bangkok’s metro system. The DAS solution was installed in the Bang Sue-Tao Poon underground extension of Bangkok Metro’s Blue Line.

For this specific project, Comba Telecom said it delivered a full turnkey solution encompassing site survey, network design, equipment supply, installation and project management.

Comba Telecom’s core product ComFlex DAS has been adopted by venues, shopping malls, high speed railways, tunnels, metropolitan areas and stadiums around the world, including the EurAsia Tunnel, the 2014 Sochi Winter Games, 2014 World Cup Brazil, the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Brazil, and the Hong Kong MTR South Island Line, among others.

ComFlex DAS is an indoor distributed antenna system for commercial public mobile telecommunication network as well as private mobile network. The ComFlex system includes two main components: Master Unit (MU) – the interface for mobile base station and Remote Unit (RU) – the amplification unit. The system utilizes a single optical fiber to support multi-band and duplex operation.
