Comtech Telecommunications said that it has won a $1.9 million order for infrastructure equipment from a large satellite systems integrator in India, which will utilize the equipment to increase its customer’s capabilities and expand its existing satellite connectivity network to optimize Internet traffic and increase the throughput while lowering overall operating costs. The Indian customer's existing network utilizes Comtech EF Data equipment to support mobile backhaul and Internet connectivity to mountainous areas within India and to several islands surrounding the country.
“This customer will continue to leverage our field-proven multi-layer solution suite to provide the application performance and underlying economics that are required in today’s satellite communications landscape,” said Stanton Sloane, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
The company said that it will deploy a combination of products featuring innovations that boosts the Quality of Experience (QoE) for end users while maximizing overall net efficiencies to support the network upgrade and expansion. As a base platform, the network will leverage 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 and DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier bandwidth compression to provide optimal economics.
In addition, the FX-4010 WAN Optimization platform will be incorporated into the network to provide header and payload compression, TCP session acceleration and robust three-level traffic shaping to ensure the premier Quality of Service (QoS).
