Richard Swardh, Senior Vice President, MNO of Comtech EF Data commented on the project, "The MNO has stringent requirements, including the need to realize the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for its satellite bandwidth and the desire to achieve the highest Quality of Experience (QoE) for its 2G voice traffic and high-speed data services including HD video conference applications in its 4G/LTE network. These constraints necessitated the integration of several state-of-the-art solutions from Comtech, including the award-winning DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier®, the latest Forward Error Correction, VersaFEC®-2, the fastest packet per second (PPS) satellite modem IP Processor, and Memotec's WX solution, which opens up LTE's S1-U interface GTP tunnel and directly optimizes the subscriber's Internet traffic, all under the dynamic SCPC (dSCPC) bandwidth management system.
