Comtech Receives $1.0 Million Order for SATCOM Equipment to Support Mobile Backhaul




Jan 12, 2012


Comtech EF Data Corp., received a $1.0 million order for satellite communications equipment. A Latin American mobile operator that is performing a network expansion will utilize the equipment to support traffic and subscriber growth.


The order included both Modems and RF products that are manufactured by Comtech EF Data. Both the CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem and the CDM-570/L Satellite Modems were specified. The CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem combines advanced Forward Error Correction with the revolutionary DoubleTalk(R) Carrier-in-Carrier(R) bandwidth compression for maximum savings under all conditions. Given its multi-dimensional optimization, the Modem can minimize operating expenses and enable the mobile operator to maximize throughput without using additional transponder resources. The CDM-570/L Satellite Modems also provide performance, flexibility and functionality ideally suited for mobile backhaul.


For RF products, the Up and Down Converters plus High-Power Outdoor Power Amplifiers were ordered. The Up and Down Converters provide high-performance and cost-effective C-, X-, Ku- and L-Band frequency conversion. Spectral purity and stability characteristics meet or exceed the requirements of domestic, international and regional commercial satellite networks. The High-Power Outdoor Power Amplifiers feature field replaceable power supplies and redundant system control. The units utilize low loss combining technique and MCP-based temperature versus gain compensation. The phase-combined systems allow the outputs of two amplifiers to be summed together for even higher power. The products provide the field-proven performance and reliability required for mobile backhaul operations.


Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp., commented on the order, "This customer selected the Comtech brand based on our track record of enabling mobile operators globally to reduce operating expenses and better utilize satellite bandwidth."
