Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Announces the General Availability of the Heights™ Dynamic Network Access Technology

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- May 15, 2017 -- Comtech Telecommunications Corp.'s Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of Comtech's Commercial Solutions segment, announced today the general availability of the Heights™ Dynamic Network Access (H-DNA) technology. With H-DNA, the Heights Networking Platform revolutionizes end user satellite Quality of Experience while providing unmatched efficiency.

Heights Dynamic Network Access is a revolutionary, dynamic network access technology designed for the Heights Networking Platform's return links. It is fast, flexible and uncompromised, delivering unprecedented benefits to users, service providers and satellite operators alike. The culmination of new waveforms, enhanced bandwidth management algorithms and robust multi-layer Quality of Service (QoS) make this return access scheme highly dynamic and automatically able to react to real-time traffic demand, providing best fit solutions based on customers' service level agreements and network policies.

H-DNA rapidly adapts to changing environments and delivers superior efficiency and Quality of Experience (QoE). It provides sub-second reaction time to changing user demand and link conditions without introducing the excessive jitter and latency normally associated with other return access technologies. Additionally, as H-DNA leverages the VersaFEC®-2 high-performance LDPC waveform, Adaptive Coding & Modulation, Dynamic Power Control, IP optimization, low framing overhead, multi-tier QoS and WAN optimization, it delivers the most user IP bits per Hertz and most robust reliability compared to any other solution in its class.

H-DNA instantly assigns capacity based on network-wide demand and intelligently utilizes total network bandwidth at all times. It ensures that bandwidth is instantly made available to users and sites across the network as demand changes. It also allocates all available bandwidth per user demand and configured service level agreements ensuring that all capacity is used at all times, providing both maximum performance and the best possible monetization opportunities.

"We are pleased to announce the general availability of H-DNA for Heights to all of our customers and believe it is a game-changing technology," commented Louis Dubin, Senior Vice President, Engineering, Marketing and Product Management for Comtech EF Data. "H-DNA will deliver true benefits to our customers, including service differentiation, superior QoE and increased profitability."
