Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Received $1.1 Million Order for Infrastructure Equipment to Support Trunking Network Expansion in Southeast Asia

MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- June 4, 2014-- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL) announced today that, in April 2014, its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., received a $1.1 million follow-on order for infrastructure equipment. A Mobile Network Operator (MNO) in Southeast Asia will utilize the equipment to support a cellular trunking network expansion. The order specified the CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking Modem, companion redundancy switches, transceivers and amplifiers.

The operator was previously utilizing the Comtech EF Data CDM-750 Advanced High-Speed Trunking Modems. In preparation for the network expansion, the MNO evaluated the latest high-speed model, the CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking Modem. The CDM-760 was selected as the model to deploy based on its spectral efficiency, higher speeds and support for Automatic Uplink Power Control (AUPC).

The CDM-760 is the most efficient, highest throughput, point-to-point trunking modem available. It can accommodate even the most demanding telco backhaul links by offering users the most advanced combination of space segment saving capabilities while minimizing the need for unnecessary overhead.

Also ordered were the DT-4503 Down Converters, the CSAT-5060 C-Band Transceivers and the Low-Noise Amplifiers.

Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp., commented on the order, "This order is confirmation that our next generation products deliver additional value for our customers."
