Zinwave scaling up in SE Asia
Zinwave, the Cambridge UK wireless technology business, has extended its reach in South East Asia through a new partnership.
It has partnered with TwinCom Trading Corporation, a wireless communications company based in Manila, to support its expanding customer base in this key territory.
Zinwave is a global provider of unique, future-proofed active distributed antenna systems (DAS) for in-building wireless coverage.
The new relationship demonstrates Zinwaves’ recognition of the economic importance of the Philippines and further strengthens its position as a major vendor of in-building DAS technology in the region.
Zinwave already has a number of strategic partnerships in place and is planning to further increase its footprint in South East Asia following its acquisition by McWane Inc.
Twincom Trading Corporation supplies telecoms equipment and coverage solutions to mobile operators and vendors in the Philippines. The company has longstanding relationships with all major network providers and has leveraged this experience to establish strong business links with many international telecommunications companies, including Globe Telecom and Smart Communications/PLDT Group, and Sun Cellular.
Zinwave’s in-building DAS is regarded as the only system capable of supporting multiple cellular and public safety services (including any variant of the new LTE services) on a single hardware layer. It supports any combination of services, between 150MHz and 2700MHz, regardless of protocol or modulation scheme.
Wilson Ngo of Twincom said: “We are feeling positive about the Zinwave/Twincom partnership and believe it will generate fruitful business opportunities for both organisations.
“Zinwave’s unique DAS technology removes the challenges associated with legacy DAS installations systems and as a result we can offer our customers a flexible and simple solution while delivering optimal ROI.”
Colin Abrey, chief marketing officer for Zinwave added: “Our DAS technology has been deployed in a number of building-projects in South East Asia, including hospitals, airports and commercial centres.”
Zinwave recently secured its largest MIMO (multiple-input-multiple-output) contract to date spanning more than 100 floors.
