      Comtech EF Data announced that it has installed a Heights Network Platform for SES Networks’ hybrid resilience solution. SES Networks will use the Heights Network Platform to deliver high-availability services to its premium customers in Asia-Pacific.

      The fully managed solution leverages the coverage of Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites and low latency capabilities of Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellites to provide diverse network paths used for the delivery of carrier-class services. When operational, this solution will enable the use of the best choice path for traffic, whether an alternative path for all of the traffic, or for traffic of the highest value, Comtech stated.

      According to Comtech EF Data, its approach to the Heights platform is to minimize operational expenditure through increased bandwidth efficiency to create new revenue streams, offer better value to customers, and control capital expenditure through a scalable equipment platform to maximize profits. The company designs solutions such as Heights to meet the increased market demand for higher throughput capabilities, support increasingly complex satellite networks, and provide global connectivity.
