SANTIAGO, Chile -- Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited (“Comba” or the “Group”, Hong Kong stock code: 2342), a leading wireless solutions provider, announced it has been selected by leading operator Movistar to supply a network optimization solution for its Chilean wireless network. With the Comba solution installed, the operator will be able to manage and optimize its multi-vendor remote electrical tilt (RET) antennas in its network. The project is notable in being the first ever RET supervision system implemented in Latin America.

Working with local partner, Interexport Chile, Comba’s solution will include the provision of antenna remote control units (RCUs), central control units (CCUs) to interface with multiple RET antennas, and installation of Comba’s proprietary Comba Electrical Tilt Software (COMETS) that allows remote management of the antennas from a single interface and seamlessly integrates with major third party network status management tools to close the optimization cycle efficiently.

Mr. Patrik Westfalk, Regional General Manager of Comba said “We are delighted to be part of this project. By deploying Comba’s RCU, CCU and COMETS in the network optimization solution, operators such as Movistar will have the flexibility to have a single system to manage all of their RET antennas in their network. Through eliminating the need for multiple and disparate RET management tool for each antenna brand, Comba’s solution empowers the operator to realize cost savings for each site by having greater flexibility in choice of antenna brands”.
