Comba Improves Award-Winning CriticalPoint™ Public Safety BDAs to Enhance In-Building Wireless
(5 March 2018 – Milpitas, CA) – Comba Telecom, Inc. (Subsidiary of Comba Telecom Holdings LTD.), a leading global wireless solutions provider, today announced upgraded versions of its award-winning 700/800MHz CriticalPoint™ Public Safety Bi-directional Amplifier (BDA) product line that enhance critical in-building communication clarity and reliability for first responders. Improvements include enhanced support of FirstNet™ LTE Band 14, increased uplink power, and independent output power levels for uplink and downlink.
The company’s research and development team has been busy developing new features that will enhance it to make it more appealing to integrators who are deploying systems to support public safety LMR voice communications.
Comba adds complete support for FirstNet’s LTE Band 14 to ensure that jurisdictions employing broadband services will be able to utilize them through the BDA. Second, increasing the uplink power from 25 to 27dBm, or 66 percent increase, provides more power for the clear delivery of calls. Finally, Comba introduced independent regulation of both uplink and downlink output power to allow greater control of system performance and to allow for better overall system balancing.
“We continually strive to improve our public safety products,” says Steven Cheng, Comba Telecom’s Product Manager. “These new improvements will directly help first responders communicate more effectively and ultimately help save lives.” Cheng continued to state.
Comba’s new CriticalPoint Class A 2W and .5W BDA versions will be shipping in March 2018. For more information visit: https://combausa.com/en/products/public-safety-communications.
