Reading time ( words)

Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., was awarded a $1.4 million order for infrastructure equipment. A large mobile network operator in Latin America will utilize the equipment to upgrade its satellite mobile backhaul network, enabling it to increase its array of service offerings, support subscriber growth and prepare for future business growth.

The operator will leverage a combination of Comtech EF Data products, including CDM-625A/L Advanced Satellite Modems with DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier®, CSAT 5060 C-Band Transceivers along with the NetVue™ Integrated Management System. In addition, Comtech EF Data will provide its Engineering Support Services (ESS) Prime package, a premium service designed to support mission-critical networks. The service includes 24x7 engineering support, training, program management, remote network performance review and other technical services.

The complete Comtech EF Data solution will minimize the mobile operator’s operational costs through maximum satellite link efficiencies while optimizing network resource utilization and performance via highly intelligent network analytics. In addition, the solution provides the underlying horsepower to support the ever-increasing throughput demands of its end users on traditional satellite capacity while allowing the mobile operator to unlock the potential of High Throughput Satellite (HTS) designs in its future.

“Our industry-leading solutions provide the horsepower, efficiencies and intelligence that are essential to today’s mobile network platforms,” commented Dr. Stanton Sloane, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “We are pleased that this Latin American mobile network operator will be able to expand its service portfolio and support its end users with a heightened level of experience.”
