Memotec Teams with OneAccess for Advanced 4G-LTE Service Delivery Solution

Memotec, Inc., a subsidiary of Comtech EF Data Corp., announced today that it has concluded an exclusive agreement with OneAccess to integrate the company’s WAN optimization and acceleration solutions into its mobile backhaul over satellite solution suite. The new solutions, targeting 4G/LTE service deployment, will be branded the Memotec WX product line.

The Memotec WX optimizer virtually eliminates the satellite link latency effect, a major concern with delivering 4G/LTE services over satellite, and provides mobile end-user with a true broadband LTE experience. In addition, the product’s intelligent and powerful data optimization processing allows a mobile operator to save up to 50% or more on transmission costs, and to sustain the highest throughput required for backhauling 4G/LTE services.

Memotec’s WX product is powered by OneAccess technology, which provides mobile operators with a unique set of combined features for optimizing 4G/LTE cellular backhaul traffic and allowing the full bandwidth capacity potential of LTE. The solution also applies to the data core when backhauling remote RNCs or SGSN 2G-3G trunks over satellite, be it directly or for backup/disaster recovery.

“We chose OneAccess as a technology partner due to their specialized advanced feature set and field proven technology, which adhere to Memotec’s standards of delivering best in class efficiency with highly reliable quality products,” commented Yves Hupe, president of Memotec. “We are seeing a fast ramp-up of 4G/LTE deployments worldwide and our customers are seeking solutions that allow them to extend broadband high capacity services for mobility or into remote locations, including resorts, mining camps and cruise ships, to name a few. Those demands can now be met cost-effectively using satellite transmission with the Memotec WX product, which provides the levels of 4G/LTE performance that end users are expecting, without compromising QoE, and regardless of location.”

“Our ability to support Memotec's range of requirements highlights the extent of the capabilities offered with the OneAccess solutions," said Dennis R. Gatens, senior vice president and general manager of OneAccess Networks, North America. “Working with Memotec, we are proud to continue to meet the diverse and constantly evolving requirements of service providers that enable high-value services.”

Combined with Comtech EF Data’s Heights Networking Platform, the Memotec WX provides the most robust and cost-effective means to roll out 4G/LTE advanced services into remote areas, whether with traditional wide satellite beams or new high-capacity High Throughput Satellite (HTS) designs. The Memotec WX can also be teamed with Comtech EF Data’s CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking modem or CDM-625A Advanced Satellite modem to provide high-speed point-to-point 4G/LTE connectivity.

The Memotec WX 4G/LTE Optimization solution has been field-proven by Tier 1 Mobile Operators and is commercially available today.

“Comtech EF Data, as the undisputed market leader in satellite cellular backhaul with a vast global mobile operator customer base, is the natural partner for OneAccess’ leading 4G/LTE solutions,” said Bertrand Meiss, CEO of OneAccess. “We look forward to working with Comtech EF Data to offer a solution that enables mobile operators to deliver an improved Quality of Experience to the end user.”
