MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
August 16, 2012--Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL)
announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF
Data Corp., was awarded a $1.5 million DoubleTalk®
Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth compression order from a
telecommunications service provider in Asia-Pacific. The service
provider will utilize the technology to facilitate a network expansion
and to deliver new services to rural villages.
With satellite bandwidth prices on the rise in Asia, service providers
are seeking technology solutions to increase throughput and reduce OPEX
so they can remain competitive and continue offering affordable
services. This service provider is upgrading fielded DMD50 Universal
Satellite Modems with DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier®.

share the same transponder space. When combined with advanced forward
error correction and modulation techniques, DoubleTalk®
Carrier-in-Carrier® minimizes OPEX/CAPEX and maximizes
throughput/availability without additional transponder resources.
