Share:

August 16, 2018-- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL)
announced today that during its fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, its
Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of
Comtech's Commercial Solutions segment, won a tender by a major Mobile
Network Operator (MNO) in China to replace the older generation of lower
efficiency modems to provide more reliable services at a much lower OPEX.

This latest order for $1.9 million, specified Comtech EF Data's CDM-625A
Advanced Satellite Modems, Up & Down Frequency Converters and the CX-U
Series RAN Optimization by its subsidiary, Memotec. The purchase
highlights the customer's long-standing confidence in the Comtech mobile
backhaul solution. For over 10 years, the MNO has utilized Comtech's
infrastructure equipment to support 1000+ sites that are serving China's
rural communities and disaster recovery efforts. By leveraging Comtech
EF Data's award-winning and bandwidth efficient satellite modems and
Memotec's 2G traffic optimization solutions, the MNO has been extremely
successful in lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) of backhauling
its traffic over satellite. Some of the leveraged features include
industry best VersaFEC-2® Forward Error Correction, the
revolutionary DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier®
bandwidth compression, lower rolloffs, and 2G TDM optimization.

"We are pleased that our customer has once again selected our mobile
backhaul solution, demonstrating its strong faith in our products and
our China-based sales and support staff," said Fred Kornberg, President
and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. "We are
proud to continue to lead the industry in highest delivered IP
throughput, providing lowest cost per delivered bit, and to provide the
performance that enables MNOs to operate at their highest level of
performance and allows them to truly monetize investments, to drive down
OPEX and to increase profitability."
