Comba Telecom appoints new GM for MENA
Vendor looks to tackle growth in the region
Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Limited, a wireless solutions provider, has announced it is expanding its business footprint in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), in response to the region's growing network coverage and capacity needs.
In line with this growth, the company has appointed Dr Hazim Al-Rawi as the new general manager for the MENA region.
In the role, Al-Rawi will manage and provide strategic direction to Comba's regional business across all products, solutions and services.
"The MENA region continues to experience exponential growth in data communications and, in turn, the pressure on mobile network operators to facilitate coverage anywhere-anytime is mounting. Meanwhile, the number of subscriptions, too, is seeing unprecedented growth - multiple countries within the region have extremely high smartphone and mobile device penetration rates," noted Al-Rawi.
Al-Rawi added that he plans to leverage Comba's classification as a tier one antennas provider and its expertise in full-turn-key of in-building solutions (IBS) and distributed antennas systems (DAS) to help existing and new customers enhance their mobile networks.
"Comba will play its part in meeting this growing demand by leveraging its extensive 2G, 3G and 4G wireless products portfolio. Network operators within the MENA region have shown a particular interest in Comba's new antenna systems to tackle bandwidth bottlenecks," he added.
