"We are extremely pleased to have successfully met the challenge of retaining the performance and reliability of one of the largest satellite backhaul networks while upgrading from TDM to an all IP backhaul solution. This is yet another experience added to our existing rich portfolio of GSM Backhaul over satellite services in Pakistan. Comtech EF Data’s cutting edge, bandwidth-efficient solution coupled with Supernet’s exceptional system design and integration capabilities have resulted in virtually zero increase in OpEx for the MNO. We believe that the other MNOs can leverage our experience to achieve this all important milestone on their growth path to a 3G ready network,” stated Hamid Nawaz, COO of Supernet.
Daniel Enns, Senior Vice President Marketing & Business Development for Comtech EF Data commented, “We are very excited to partner with Supernet and to help facilitate the continual growth of mobile services in Pakistan. Our CDM-625/CDM-625A Advanced Satellite Modems and our highly efficient RAN / WAN optimization products are purpose-built for the 2G/2.5G/3G/4G mobile backhaul markets. The successful migration testing of a 2G network to 3G without increasing the required satellite bandwidth is a validation of the benefits our solutions deliver. Examples of our integrated technologies that MNOs use to reach more users while lowering overall costs are advanced modulation and forward error correction coupled with the seamless integration of DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier, RAN and WAN optimization, and PtP (Precision Time Protocol).”
