Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced today that during its second quarter of fiscal 2018, its Enterprise Technologies group, which is part of Comtech's Commercial Solutions segment, has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $1.0 million from a major U.S. telecom organization for its virtualized Mobile Location Center (vMLC) platform.
The vMLC platform is a fully virtualized, cloud-native solution architected to take advantage of deployment in a Network Function Virtualization (NFV) environment. It is designed to scale with flexibility to support value-added services, lawful interception, emergency services, and any operator services. Furthermore, it offers access to multiple location technologies including A-GNSS, LTE-OTDOA, E-CID, Hybrids, and Cell ID.
"Comtech's NFV-based location services allow us to serve a larger set of customers in a more cost-effective manner while providing a number of benefits to our operator and enterprise customers, including making our software available at any time and on non-proprietary platforms," said Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. "This flexibility and agility reduces customer costs, both CapEx and OpEx. We are honored to be delivering these services for this customer and believe that this agreement again validates our industry-leading expertise in deploying advanced location services."
