Comtech EF Data Announces New Milestone In Satellite-Based Mobile Backhaul

Stocks in this article: CMTL

Comtech EF Data Corp. announced today the achievement of a new milestone in satellite-based mobile backhaul. Working with Intelsat S.A. (NYSE: I), a global leader in satellite services, Comtech EF Data is now enabling 2G, 2.5G, 3G and 4G/LTE services on over 1.5 GHz of capacity into a single market in South America.

The first region to benefit from this capability, South America, has grown steadily for mobile backhaul supporting 2G and 2.5G and also for 3G and 4G services in densely populated urban areas. Satellite is also being utilized as the primary links in Mobile Network Operators’ (MNOs’) core backbones and for restoration services where fiber and cable are used as the core. The combination of Intelsat’s high availability and comprehensive satellite coverage into South America and Comtech EF Data’s award-winning mobile backhaul solutions has enabled continual growth in the market.

Bob Hansen, Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer for Comtech EF Data, commented, “We are very excited to be a part of the continual growth of mobile services in South America. Our CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking Modem, CDM-625A Advanced Satellite Modem and CX-U Series products are purpose built for the mobile market. We continue to develop and integrate technologies such as DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier®, RAN and WAN optimization, PtP (Precision Time Protocol) and satellite capacity optimization into our products to enable our mobile customers to reach more users while lowering overall cost to deliver these services.”

Intelsat and Comtech EF Data provide mobile backhaul solutions that deliver true value for Mobile Network Operators. Leveraging Intelsat’s weather-resistant C- and Ku-band frequencies, MNOs can provide robust, cost-effective availability for aggregation or last-mile access with minimal operational complexity. Comtech EF Data equipment is powering satellite-based infrastructure for MNOs globally. Its award-winning and patented technologies provide unrivaled spectral efficiencies and optimization to enable operators to fully leverage satellite capacity. The technologies serve as the framework to reduce OPEX and CAPEX, increase service quality, and facilitate sustainable and profitable connectivity.
