Comtech EF Data receives $1.0 million order for infrastructure equipment from global satellite opera
Comtech Telecommunications has announced that during its second quarter of fiscal 2019, its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of Comtech's Commercial Solutions segment, was awarded a $1.0 million infrastructure equipment order from a global satellite operator. The satellite operator will continue to team Comtech EF Data products with its innovative global GEO satellite constellation to offer its customers unparalleled performance and reliability.
The order specified Comtech EF Data's CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking and Broadcast Modem, which offers the user data rates of over one Gigabit per second and was designed to be the market's most efficient, highest throughput, point-to-point trunking and broadcast modem. The modem leverages 256APSK modulation, DVB-S2X and bi-directional Adaptive Coding and Modulation operation, which is the most advanced combination of space segment saving capabilities that minimize overhead. The modems will be deployed and utilized to support next generation, high-speed maritime applications across the satellite operator’s global GEO satellite constellation.
“The satellite operator selected our satellite modems based on our proven track record of delivering reliable and highly resilient products with the highest speeds in MEO and GEO modes,” commented Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
