Telecom Lead America: Comtech Telecommunications
announced that its subsidiary, Comtech EF Data, has received a $2.5 million contract
for satellite earth station equipment from a Latin American mobile operator.
The Latin American telecom operator is undergoing a
significant network expansion for mobile backhaul. Specific equipment ordered
includes the CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem, the CDM-750 Advanced High-Speed
Trunking Modem and the LPOD Block Up Converters (BUC).
The combination of advanced technologies enables users to
minimize OPEX/CAPEX and maximize throughput/availability without using
additional transponder resources.
The CDM-750 was designed to be the most efficient,
highest throughput, point-to-point trunking modem available. It accommodates
the most demanding links by offering users the most advanced combination of
space segment saving capabilities while minimizing the need for unnecessary
The LPOD BUC is engineered with efficient thermal and
mechanical packaging. The unit eliminates the requirement for the modem to
supply a DC power source and a 10 MHz reference to the BUCs and LNBs. The
LPOD’s optional internal reference and LNB bias T simplify multi-carrier
operation and provide cost-effective redundant solutions. And, the compact size
and weight make the unit ideally suited for installations with limited mounting
Our products are supporting mobile backhaul and trunking
applications for operators around the globe,” said Fred Kornberg, president and
chief executive officer of Comtech Telecommunications.
The CDM-625 combines forward error correction with
DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier bandwidth compression for maximum savings under
all conditions. DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier, based on Raytheon Applied Signal
Technology’s Adaptive Cancellation circuitry, allows transmit and receive
carriers of a duplex link to share the same transponder space.
