Comba Telecom Adds UHF BDA to Its Public Safety Product Line

CriticalPoint™ UHF BDA design focuses on practicality to keep overall costs and size low without sacrificing reliability and performance for first responders   



(5 August 2018 – Milpitas, CA) – Comba Telecom, Inc. (Subsidiary of Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Ltd.), a global leading wireless solutions provider, today released the CriticalPoint™ Public Safety UHF BDA solution at the APCO 2018 | 84th Annual Conference & Expo

The CriticalPoint UHF BDA supports frequencies from 450MHz to 512MHz and supports INTERNAL one-window or dual-window filters for various passbands within the NEMA 4 enclosure to lower overall costs, reduce installation costs, and save space. Additionally, features that are found on the award-winning 700/800MHz public safety BDA such as supporting up to 32 narrow band channels (Class A) or 4 wide-band channels (Class B), Channelized Automatic Level Control and channelized squelch (Class A) are also incorporated in the UHF BDA. 

In addition, a brand new exclusive feature has been released called NetProtect™.  NetProtect allows the BDA to automatically turn off the uplink Power Amplifier (PA) when there is no traffic activity so ‘no noise’ is transmitted back to the base station, helping to keep the public safety network clean. The NetProtect feature can be found on both our latest UHF BDA as well as Comba’s 700/800MHz Class A BDA.
