Comba Enables 2G and 3G Network Coverage for 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Venues


(2 July 2008 – Hong Kong) – Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited (“Comba” or the “Group”, Hong Kong stock code: 2342), a leading wireless enhancement solutions provider, announced the completion of two major multi-system wireless coverage projects at the Olympic Green in Beijing - a key site of the 2008 Summer Olympics. 
The projects included the supply of wireless in-building coverage solutions for both the Beijing National Stadium  and  Beijing  National  Aquatics  Center,  also  known  as  the  “Bird's  Nest”  and  the  “Water  Cube”respectively for its architectural designs. Occupying 258,000 square meters and seating up to 100,000 spectators,  the  Bird's  Nest  will  host  the  main  track  and  field  competitions  as  well  as  the  opening  and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics. Adjacent to the Bird’s Nest is the Water Cube which will  host  the  swimming  and  diving  events  of  the  Games.  Occupying  over  97,000  square  meters,  the
Water Cube has a capacity of 17,000 seats. 
In order to enrich the network coverage within the Olympic venues, Comba designed, implemented and rigorously tested the solutions that encompassed trunking, wireless LAN, 2G and 3G network standards with the deployment of an array of multi-frequency combiners, repeaters and antennas. The end result was  a  capacity-scalable  and  optimized  solution  that  provides  ubiquitous  wireless  network  availability within the venues.
Comba's Chairman  and  President, Mr. Tony  TL  Fok,  said, “We  are  proud  to  help  our  clients  enhance their network through the successful implementation of the wireless systems at the Bird's Nest and the Water  Cube.  It  is  an  honor  to  be  part  of  the  national  effort  to  ensure  a  smooth  and  effective communications system in readiness for the Olympic Games this summer.”
