We have placed a lot of R&D resources to develop a portfolio of cost effective TMA products with smaller footprints. Most importantly, the market and our customers recognize the value proposition of Comba Telecom's TMA which is reflected by our market share."
Ye added, "Comba Telecom has always focused on looking ahead of the curve and anticipating customer needs in advance. Besides the TMA products, we already have a portfolio of solutions to improve system performance such as our remote radio head products which have been deployed by our customers around the world."
