MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
July 12, 2012— Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL)
announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF
Data Corp., received a $1.7 million equipment order from a mobile
network operator in Asia. The order included Comtech EF Data's Modems
and RF Products, and RAN Optimization by its subsidiary, Memotec. The
products will support the upgrade and expansion of a satellite-based
mobile backhaul network.
The operator will deploy Comtech EF Data's CDM-625 Advanced Satellite
Modems and Memotec's CX-U Series RAN Optimization at new sites to expand
their current network and at existing sites to add network optimization.
The CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem combines advanced forward error
correction with DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth
compression for maximum savings under all conditions. DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier®,
based on Raytheon Applied Signal Technology's patented "Adaptive
Cancellation" technology, allows transmit and receive carriers of a
duplex link to share the same transponder space. The combination of
advanced technologies enables users to minimize OPEX/CAPEX and maximize
throughput/availability without using additional transponder resources.
The CX-U Series brings together a flexible access device and mobile
backhaul traffic optimization, offering a variety of backhaul interfaces
and transmission options. The CX-U offers Abis/Ater optimization, 2G/3G
aggregation, DCME voice trunking optimization, TDM Pseudowire, all over
IP, Frame Relay or MLPPP protocol support. Several models were ordered,
including the CX-U 1010, the CX-U 1220 and the CX-U 1280. The
field-proven combination of the CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem with
DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® and the CX-U
Series RAN Optimization deliver significant OPEX savings for customers
with no degradation in quality. Mobile network operators and service
providers globally have widely adopted this market-leading solution.
Both indoor and outdoor models of Comtech EF Data's frequency conversion
RF Products were also ordered, specifically the LPOD Block Up Converter,
the UT-4505 Up Converter and the DT-4503 Down Converter. Providing
frequency conversion for outdoor environments, the LPOD is rugged,
weatherproof and designed to withstand harsh conditions. The
rack-mountable UT-4505 and the DT-4503 units are the ultimate in
high-performance and cost-effective frequency conversion.
"By leveraging our best in class optimization technologies, this mobile
network operator can facilitate a sustainable and profitable network
expansion," commented Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
