Hong Kong based wireless solutions provider Comba Telecom has deployed a turnkey in-building wireless solution for the new Dubai Frame landmark.

The 50-storey Dubai Frame measures 150 meters high and 93 meters wide in the shape of a picture frame. It is expected to handle over 2 million tourists annually.

The attraction includes a museum on the lower floor as well as an observation deck connecting the tops of the two main towers.

Comba Telecom's in-building wireless solution will provide network coverage to allow tourists to access the structure using their smartphones via smart ticketing systems.

The solution includes a coverage area of around 4,500 square meters, with panel antennas, cable strays and splitters installed throughout the Dubai Frame, supporting 2G, 3G, 4G and other wireless connectivity from the ground floor, along the two towers to the observation deck.

"We are honored to be selected as the solution provider for The Dubai Frame. In addition to hardware, Comba Telecom also provided professional services for network design, project management, drive test and benchmarking and maintenance for the entire project,” Comba Telecom general manager for the Middle East Hazin Al-rawi said.
