Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL) has announced that during the company’s first quarter of fiscal 2021, their Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, received a $1.5 million order for Single Channel Per Carrier (“SCPC”) satellite modems from a Tier 1 defense contractor.
The satellite modems will be used by a defense entity to upgrade and expand their existing network that included the prior generation of long-performing, CDM-625 Satellite Modems by Comtech EF Data.
Following an extensive technical evaluation and battery of tests, the customer selected Comtech EF Data’s CDM-625A Advanced Satellite Modem as the platform for this network upgrade and expansion. The defense entity will benefit from the range of advanced features available in the CDM-625A, including DoubleTalk® Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth compression, Carrier-in-Carrier Automatic Power Control, 4-port 10/100Base-T managed Ethernet switch with VLAN capability and embedded priority-based Quality of Service.
“The CDM-625A Advanced Satellite Modem builds on our legacy of providing the most efficient and reliable satellite modems,” commented Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “Migrating to the latest generation modem will enable additional bandwidth efficiencies and link optimization to be realized by this customer.”
