China Mobile HK dials up Comba for 5G indoor coverage

China Mobile Hong Kong (CMHK) picked Comba Network Systems, a subsidiary of Comba Telecom Systems Holdings, for the design, building, and supply of a 5G indoor coverage solution for Lawsgroup’s flagship technology property KTR 350.

As the first large-scale project under the strategic partnership between CMHK and Lawsgroup, KTR 350 is a new 29-storey smart commercial building with a gross floor area of 200,000 square feet located at 350 Kwun Tong Road, Hong Kong. 

Comba Network will design and build an integrated indoor 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G New Radio (NR) System, operating in the new 5G 700 MHz band and the 3300 MHz to 3600 MHz golden spectrum band, as well as the traditional frequency bands for 2G, 3G and 4G. 

With a 300 MHz bandwidth, this integrated system will support 4×4 MIMO technology to deliver enhanced broadband user experience in the 5G NR network. 

Comba ComFlex Pro Distributed Antenna System (DAS) Solution will be deployed to meet all the advanced system requirements and help Lawsgroup expand and deepen the 5G indoor network coverage for KTR350.

Comba ComFlex Pro DAS platform is a highly flexible and scalable solution featuring advanced capabilities to ensure high-quality indoor network coverage and performance for all building types. 

The platform enables flexible system deployment and capacity allocation, as well as savings on power, cost, and rack space to meet the rapidly growing demands of IoT applications and optimal indoor network coverage, capacity, and performance in high-traffic areas. 

Before this, Comba Network has successfully deployed ComFlex Pro Solutions in prominent landmarks in Hong Kong, including the Hong Kong International Airport (public 4G system), the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, and the Olympian City for CMHK.

“As a trusted indoor distribution system supplier with a dedicated and professional engineering team, Comba Network will continuously innovate to compete, grow and remain relevant in the field of information and communications,” said Tao Sun, GM of Comba Network’s International Sales Center.

Rico Lau, IT Director of Lawsgroup, said that one of the main purposes of adopting 5G smart solutions is to enhance their overall environmental performance complementing the “1.5°Campaign” rolled out earlier. 

“We look forward to the continued collaboration to further the goal of our business digitisation and sustainability development.” said Lau.
