August 16, 2018 – Comtech EF Data Corp. 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.
