Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) has that during the firm's second quarter of fiscal 2019, their 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 their innovative, global, GEO satellite constellation to offer 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 used to support next generation, high-speed maritime applications across the satellite operator’s global GEO satellite constellation.
Fred Kornberg, President and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications Corporation, said the satellite operator selected the company's satellite modems based on the firm's proven track record of delivering reliable and highly resilient products with the highest speeds in MEO and GEO modes.
