(19 January 2016, Hong Kong) – Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited (“Comba Telecom” or “the Group”, Hong Kong stock code: 2342), a global leading wireless solutions provider, announced it has again been named one of the top 3 suppliers of base station antennas since 2012 by market share according to the latest global market research report conducted by EJL Wireless Research.
In the EJL Wireless Research report “Global BTS Antenna Market Analysis and Forecast, 2015-2019, 7th Edition”, Comba Telecom and three other antenna suppliers were defined as “Tier 1 Suppliers” which collectively controlled approximately 54% of total base station antenna shipments globally. Unit volumes increased by 26% within the Tier 1 group. According to EJL Wireless, there were over 4 million antennas shipped in 2014, with the total units shipped by the Tier 1 suppliers exceeding 2 million.
Ms. Carol Ye, Comba Telecom’s Deputy General Manager, Antennas and Subsystems said, “We are delighted to be recognized as a Tier 1 supplier by EJL Wireless again, and in fact, we have maintained this position since 2012. Our success in numerous projects such as the World Soccer Tournament in Brazil, the Winter Games in Sochi and for various macro network rollouts across the globe where our equipment was deployed helped reinforce our position. This included enormous demand for the 4G TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE network rollouts from operators in China, South America, Middle East and Europe and ASEAN regions which has put us in a very strong position currently and for the years ahead.”
Ms. Ye concluded, “Looking forward, we are building on this momentum by continuously improving on our manufacturing and fulfillment capabilities to ensure timely delivery of shipments. Firstly, our state-of-the-art, automated equipment for component soldering and assembly significantly improves our production efficiency, consistency, and quality. Secondly, our world-class R&D facilities enable us to develop new products and technology in response to market demands. In fact, over the next few months we will be launching a new wave of base station antennas with reduced footprint and accommodating more ports and smart features with new 4.3-10 connectors. Stay tuned for further developments.”
