Comtech EF Data says that it has received a USD1.3 million order for satellite modems that will support cellular backhaul networks in Africa and the Middle East. The order includes Comtech EF Data's CDM QxL Multi Channel Satellite Modems with DoubleTalk) Carrier in Carrier and the CDM 570L Satellite Modems with IP Modules.
The CDM-QxL is a multi-channel satellite modem that features the award-winning DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier. Carrier-in-Carrier is based on Applied Signal Technology's DoubleTalk bandwidth compression technology. DoubleTalk uses "Adaptive Cancellation," a patented technology that allows the transmit and receive carriers of a full-duplex satellite link to be transmitted in the same transponder space. Users can reduce operating costs, increase throughput or availability without additional transponder resources, and/or reduce capital expenditures.
Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp., commented, "By deploying Comtech's bandwidth efficient solutions, cellular operators can minimize expenditures and cost-effectively expand their network coverage."
