Comtech Telecommunications Corp. announced today that during its first quarter of fiscal 2021, its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, received a $1.5 million order for Single Channel Per Carrier (SCPC) satellite modems from a Tier 1 defense contractor. The satellite modems will be utilized by a defense entity to upgrade and expand its existing network that included the prior generation of long-performing CDM-625 Satellite Modems by Comtech EF Data.
Following an extensive technical evaluation and battery of tests, the customer selected Comtech EF Data’s CDM-625A Advanced Satellite Modem as the platform for its network upgrade and expansion. The defense entity will benefit from the range of advanced features available in the CDM-625A, including DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth compression, Carrier-in-Carrier Automatic Power Control, 4-port 10/100Base-T managed Ethernet switch with VLAN capability and embedded priority-based Quality of Service.
“The CDM-625A Advanced Satellite Modem builds on our legacy of providing the most efficient and reliable satellite modems,” commented Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “Migrating to the latest generation modem will enable additional bandwidth efficiencies and link optimization to be realized by this customer.”
