      [Via Satellite 05-29-2015] Comtech EF Data’s commercially available Advanced Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Solutions are now deployed and supporting multiple customer installations using O3b Networks’ satellite system. The in-service customers are located in the Cook Islands, Pakistan and Malaysia, and have deployed point-to-multipoint networks using O3b Networks’ Ka-band Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite systems and Comtech EF Data’s portfolio of satellite-based communication solutions. Comtech EF Data assisted the customers in designing optimal satellite networks using the combination of its Advanced VSAT Solutions and O3b’s network High Throughput Satellite (HTS) capacity.

      “Telecommunications operators and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that currently own or plan to purchase Advanced VSAT to support mobile backhaul or trunking applications over GEO can now have confidence that the solution is compatible with O3b Networks’ MEO satellite systems,” said Bob Hansen, chief commercial officer and senior vice president of Comtech EF Data.
