With a 120 kilometer line connecting Beijing to Tianjin, railway trains run at an operational speed of up to 350 kilometers per hour, making it the fastest train service in the world. Travel time between these two cities has now been shortened to 30 minutes.

Although speed is the greatest advantages of a high speed railway, it is also poses challenges in the provision of ubiquitous mobile communication coverage. To overcome this, Comba's solution included the division of the line into a number of sections and set up of over 120 service spots along the route. Comba's advanced fiber transport remote radio solution then boosts and enhances wireless reception whilst minimizing signal interference and extending reach.

Mr. Tony TL Fok, Chairman and President of Comba, said "We are pleased to supply our wireless solutions to the Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Rail. The result of exhaustive testing and standby support means that passengers can enjoy seamless coverage on their mobile phones. Moreover, Comba's solution is easily scalable and upgradeable to 3G standards should it be required." He further added "Our experience and track record in the provision of wireless solutions for transport networks is unsurpassed where solutions have been implemented for the Tibet-Qinghai railroad and Shenzhen subway for example. This latest project is testament to our customers' faith in the company's solution and services."
