Comba Telecom partners with Parallel Wireless to Deliver 4G & 5G Open vRAN Solutions
NASHUA, N.H., BARCELONA, Spain and HONG KONG, Feb. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

-- Comba's industry-leading RRH, base station antennas products and services, 
combined with Parallel Wireless world's first 2G/3G/4G/5G software, advance 
Open RAN with lowest TCO for MNOs globally

Parallel Wireless, Inc., the leading provider of the world's first end-to-end 
software-based unified network solution across All Gs (2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G) and 
Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited ("Comba Telecom" or "the Group," HKSE 
stock code: 2342), a global leading solutions and services provider of wireless 
and information communications systems, today jointly announced a partnership 
on delivering 4G and 5G virtualized Open RAN ("Open vRAN") solution. The 
resulting solution integrates Parallel Wireless software with Comba Remote 
Radio Unit ("RRU") and base station antennas and leverages its integration 
services. It gives mobile operators a fully Open vRAN solution, delivering 
faster time-to-market and better ROI to deliver coverage or capacity.

Highlights of the joint 4G and 5G Open vRAN solution:

To meet the capacity and latency demands of 4G and 5G applications and 
services, mobile operators are reimagining their access networks from 
single-vendor hardware-centric architectures to multi-vendor open solutions 
built on disaggregated software and hardware components.

    -- Comba Telecom is a pioneering Open RAN hardware supplier that has 
       embraced the telecom industry shift to Open RAN with: 
         - best in class RRU with advanced signal processing, multi-TRX radio 
           technology and high efficiency high power MCPA technology that 
           supports global major frequency bands and CPRI/eCPRI interface to 
           most of the COTS-based BBUs 
         - 5G massive MIMO antenna 
         - all-in-one 5G-oriented antennas – the Super Multiband Antenna and 
           TDD+FDD Integrated Antenna 
    -- By supporting 2G/3G/4G/5G under the same software umbrella, Parallel 
       Wireless is future proofing cellular architectures made possible by the 
       white box and Open Compute movement through hardware and software 
       disaggregation. This results in 2G/3G/4G/5G/Wi-Fi network unification 
       and a radically lower cost structure that enables SP profitability and 
       makes their network ready for evolving subscriber needs. The unified end-
       to-end 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G Open vRAN delivers real-time orchestration 
       through SON and network automation and can be deployed as easily and as 
       cost-effectively as enterprise Wi-Fi for coverage or capacity needs.

Ms. Annabel Huo, President, Comba Telecom International said, "We are excited 
to partner with Parallel Wireless to deliver complete 4G and 5G Open RAN 
Solutions. The introduction of faster speeds through 5G networks paves the way 
for the development of innovative technologies and the Internet of Things. 
Comba Telecom is an expert in radio head products and Parallel Wireless is the 
leading player in the Open RAN market. We're incredibly excited about how this 
venture will contribute to the 5G evolution in the ecosystem."

Mr. Rajesh Mishra, Founder, President and CTO, Parallel Wireless said, "Open 
vRAN across 2G /3G/4G/5G delivers economic scaling and service agility to 
mobile operators. As deployments accelerate in preparation for 5G, delivering 
integrated best in class solutions with industry leaders such as Comba Telecom 
ensures that our Open RAN ecosystem supports macros, massive MIMOs, and small 
cells, enabling interference management across 2G/3G/4G/5G and carrier 
aggregation to improve network efficiency and subscriber experience in outdoor 
and indoor scenarios."
