Comtech EF Data Expands WAN Optimization Product Line to Enhance Users' Quality of Experience

Share:

August 6, 2018-- Comtech EF Data Corp., a subsidiary within Comtech
Telecommunications Corp.'s (NASDAQ:CMTL) Commercial Solutions segment,
announced today the expansion of its WAN Optimization (WANOp) product
line targeted at satellite service providers for Internet trunking
applications. The expansion includes new WANOp appliances and enhanced
functionality focused on users' Quality of Experience (QoE).

The new Release 7 of the FX
Series WANOp
appliance solution delivers unparalleled performance of
up to 5 Gbps throughput and 1,000,000 TCP flows, leveraging the
bandwidth capabilities of High Throughput Satellites. When paired with
Comtech EF Data's CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking and Broadcast
Modem, the FX Series delivers the ultimate Internet trunking solution
for satellite service providers.

The FX Release 7 delivers several breakthroughs in terms of user
experience enhancements:

  • Faster web browsing experience (up to 50%) matching standard
    terrestrial backhaul Internet access
  • Faster file transfer (object download/upload) up to 250 Mbps per
    session
  • Significantly better resiliency to packet loss by several orders of
    magnitude

The Comtech's WANOp solution is designed to meet service providers' most
stringent requirements in terms of:

  • Service availability and reliability: Hot swap redundant power
    supplies, system and LAN/WAN connectivity (dual-path) redundancy,
    fail-safe pass-through, extended temperature range
  • Scalability: One platform, upgradable through software license
  • Operation efficiency: Simplified "plug & play" configuration

Another breakthrough is the true Layer 2 / Layer 3 network transparency
of the appliance solution, facilitating network deployment and ease of
operation. Acceleration is performed on the end user traffic regardless
of the underlying network protocols and encapsulation methods. The FX
Series WANOp can manage any combination of stacked VLANs, stacked MPLS,
Layer 2 or Layer 3 VPN, GTP encapsulated LTE/4G or 3G Mobility traffic,
including support of Ethernet Jumbo frames up to 9,000 bytes and dual
stack Ipv4/Ipv6.

When paired with Comtech EF Data modems, the FX appliances with Release
7 monitor, in real-time, the available bandwidth and maximize the
throughput and usage of the link to the modem's current capacity. This
function is essential when using Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM),
which is commonly the case for satellites operating in Ka- or Ku-bands.

"As a result of our unique feature set and performance, our FX Series
WANOp Release 7 solution and our CDM-760 modem were selected by a Tier 1
satellite service provider to deliver ultra-high speed, fiber-like
backhaul services to communication service providers," commented Louis
Dubin, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Marketing for
Comtech EF Data.
