Comtech EF Data’s CDM-425 Advanced Satellite Modem and LPOD C-Band Block Up Converter (“BUC”) will be deployed to support the backup communications network. The CDM-425 Advanced Satellite Modem builds on Comtech EF Data’s legacy of providing the most efficient and reliable satellite modems. Its Forward Error Correction options comprise 18 VersaFEC® ModCods and 74 VersaFEC-2 ModCods, permitting users to optimize for latency and coding gain for any link budget. It includes DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth compression, additional TX rolloffs and sophisticated packet processing capabilities. The LPOD eliminates the traditional requirement for the modem to supply a DC power source and a 10 MHz reference to the BUCs and LNBs. The LPOD’s optional internal reference and LNB bias T greatly simplify multi-carrier operation and provide cost-effective redundant solutions.
“We are honored to have been selected to supply our satellite communications equipment for this mission-critical network,” said
