Comtech EF Data Receives Order from Asian MNO for Backhaul Network Expansion
[Via Satellite 11-18-2016] Comtech EF Data received a $3.3 million equipment order to provide backhaul network expansion for one of the largest Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in Asia. This initial order represents approximately one third of the total planned network expansion project by the MNO. The order encompasses a range of ground equipment from Comtech EF Data and its subsidiary Memotec.
“The MNO has stringent requirements, including the need to realize the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for its satellite bandwidth and the desire to achieve the highest Quality of Experience (QoE) for its 2G voice traffic and high-speed data services including HD video conference applications in its 4G/LTE network. These constraints necessitated the integration of several state-of-the-art solutions from Comtech, including the award-winning DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier, the latest Forward Error Correction, VersaFEC-2, the fastest Packet per Second (PPS) satellite modem IP Processor, and Memotec’s WX solution, which opens up LTE’s S1-U interface GTP tunnel and directly optimizes the subscriber’s Internet traffic, all under the dynamic SCPC (dSCPC) bandwidth management system. We are delighted that our solution suite delivers exactly what the MNO needs in its network requirement,” said Richard Swardh, senior vice president, MNO of Comtech EF Data.
