Saudi Arabian integrator NOVAsat awards $1.1M order to Comtech
Comtech Telecommunications announced its Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp, which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, was awarded a $1.1 million order for infrastructure equipment from NOVAsat, a systems integrator in Saudi Arabia. The equipment will be utilised by a large mobile network operator to expand its existing Comtech EF Data-based mobile backhaul network to support both fixed and mobile users.
To support the network expansion, the mobile operator will employ the CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking and Broadcast Modem, which provides maximum link efficiencies at high speeds via its industry-leading DVB-S2 Efficiency Boost technology and the CDM-625A Advanced Satellite Modem, equipped with the VersaFEC-2 Forward Error Correction to provide the best application performance for medium- to low-speed links.
Both modems feature the DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier bandwidth re-use technique to provide optimal economics. Also, Comtech EF Data’s FX Optimisation solutions and intelligent LPOD Ku-Band Block Up Converter will be utilised.
The mobile operator will leverage innovations within these products to support different end user applications, including the high-speed backhaul of 2G and 3G traffic of up to 70 Mbps to fixed remote sites and to temporary 3G installations. Additionally, the solution suite will provide on-demand support for customers and high-speed connectivity to mobile-on-wheels vehicles that provide bandwidth when and where needed on a temporary basis, whether for scheduled events or unexpected purposes such as for disaster recovery communications.
“This mobile operator will harness the horsepower and flexibility of the Comtech EF Data product suite to support a diverse set of bandwidth-hungry applications,” commented Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications. “We are proud to continue to enable this customer to provide remote users who are underserved by terrestrial alternatives with the reliable, true broadband experience they require.”
