MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- April 9, 2014--Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., was awarded a $1.4 million order to supply infrastructure equipment. A mobile network operator in Latin America will utilize the equipment to support an ongoing network expansion project.

The order specified the CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modems, which are utilized by operators globally to power satellite mobile backhaul. The Modems combine advanced forward error correction with DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth compression to provide maximum savings. DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® is based on Raytheon Applied Signal Technology's patented "Adaptive Cancellation" technology, which allows transmit and receive carriers of a duplex link to share the same transponder space. The optional Packet Processor for the CDM-625 was also ordered. It will enable efficient IP networking and transport over satellite by adding routing capability with very low overhead encapsulation, header compression, payload compression and Quality of Service ("QoS"). The advanced QoS combined with header and payload compression ensures the highest quality of service with minimal jitter and latency for real-time traffic, priority treatment of mission-critical applications and maximum bandwidth efficiency.

Additionally, RF products were included in the order, specifically the CSAT-5060 C-Band Transceivers and the HPOD High-Power Outdoor Amplifiers. These products are examples of Comtech EF Data's rugged and feature-rich outdoor ground station equipment that are ideal for deployment in harsh environments.

Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. commented, "This mobile network operator is relying on Comtech equipment to support its ongoing network expansion based on our proven ability to facilitate sustainable and profitable connectivity. The combination of our technologies will enable the operator to expand service offerings and to extend mobile backhaul to rural and remote regions."
