Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Receives $1.0 Million Equipment Order for Air Traffic Control Communications Network in Latin America
The order specified NetPerformer™ Satellite Routers developed by Comtech EF Data Corp.’s subsidiary, Memotec, which deliver highly reliable, secured communications across hybrid terrestrial lines, as well as microwave and satellite transmissions. The NetPerformer platform combines the functionality of a data router, a multiplexer and a voice gateway in a single device, enabling users to create converged networks and transport mission-critical information over satellite or terrestrial links.
The Memotec NetPerformer ensures that Air Traffic Management (“ATM”) services are prioritized adequately and cost efficiently delivered using the best available path at any time, thus enabling ATC networks to be compliant with EUROCAE WG67 ATM standards. The NetPerformer meets stringent service quality requirements for delay, jitter and packet loss, and compensates for transmission network delays, enabling Air to Ground VHF radio communications and radar information to transit seamlessly across terrestrial or satellite links. It is the only solution compliant with VHF-AA (“VHF Extended Range”) EUROCAE specifications. As a voice and VHF over IP gateway solution compliant with EUROCAE WG67 ED137-B, the platform is a key enabler for the evolution of ATC services towards all-IP networks.
“We are honored to have been selected to supply equipment for this
mission-critical network,” commented
