Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Awarded $2.2 Million Contract To Supply SatCom Equipment To UltiSat, Inc.

August 1, 2013--Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., was awarded a $2.2 million contract to supply SatCom equipment to UltiSat, Inc., a global managed VSAT network service provider. UltiSat will integrate the equipment as part of its turnkey solution to design, deploy, operate and maintain a global network that it was recently awarded.

The order encompassed a selection of RF products, the line-up of Advanced VSAT Solutions and the Vipersat Management System. The RF products included LPOD Block Up Converters, HPOD High-Power Amplifiers and MBT-4000 Multi-Band Transceivers. These outdoor frequency conversion and amplifier models are rugged, weatherproof and designed to withstand harsh environments. The products are cost-effective and provide field-proven performance and reliability.

The award-winning Advanced VSAT Solutions is a portfolio of managed high-performance, satellite-based communication solutions that provide premium services with industry-leading spectral efficiency. It incorporates advanced FEC, ACM/VCM, header and lossless payload compression, RAN and WAN optimization, multi-level advanced Quality of Service (QoS) and dynamic bandwidth management to reduce OPEX by minimizing leased bandwidth and power consumption and minimize CAPEX by reducing antenna and BUC size. When used with VMS, the dSCPC capability enables dynamic allocation and sharing of bandwidth. When a node in the satellite network detects a change in required capacity, it automatically requests that change from the VMS. VMS manages the satellite resource allocations and automatically creates a new frequency plan, power level, data rate, FEC, and modulation schemes.

“We selected Comtech EF Data’s equipment as part of this important network solution based on their technologies and proven track record. The advanced features will help us to optimize the network and enable enhanced applications for our customer,” commented Moe Abutaleb, Chief Executive Officer of UltiSat.

The global network that UltiSat will deploy encompasses more than 150 remote sites all interconnected via satellite to UltiSat’s teleport in Blaavand, Denmark. The Comtech EF Data equipment will support the transmission of corporate and Internet traffic, Voice over IP, file transfers and video conferencing.
