Comtech said that during its first quarter of fiscal 2018, its Arizona subsidiary Comtech EF Data was awarded a USD $1.1 million order for infrastructure equipment from NOVAsat, a systems integrator in Saudi Arabia. The equipment will be used by a large mobile network operator to expand its existing Comtech EF Data-based mobile backhaul network, to support both fixed and mobile users.
The mobile operator will employ the CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking and Broadcast Modem via DVB-S2 Efficiency Boost equipment, and the CDM-625A Advanced Satellite Modem, equipped with the VersaFEC-2 Forward Error Correction. Both modems employ the DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier bandwidth re-use technique.
Comtech EF Data’s FX Optimisation products and LPOD Ku-Band Block Up Converter (BUC) will be used, too. The mobile operator will use these to support different end user applications, including backhaul of 2G and 3G traffic of up to 70 Mbps to fixed remote sites and to temporary 3G installations. The suite will also 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 disaster recovery communications.
