Comtech EF Data has received an infrastructure equipment order valued at $1.4 million from an undisclosed satellite operator. The operator teams Comtech EF Data products with its High Throughput Satellite (HTS) options to offer improved price for performance levels to its customer base. This will create new markets while keeping satellite connectivity competitive within international regions with increased terrestrial options, according to the company.
The order specified Comtech EF Data’s CDM-760 Advanced High-Speed Trunking and Broadcast Modem. The CDM-760 offers user data rates of more than 1 Gigabit per second, and leverages 256-APSK modulation, DVB-S2X and bi-directional adaptive coding and modulation operation.
According to Comtech, the operator will use the CDM-760 modems for ultra-high-speed trunk circuits that will support an array of applications, including regional Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) deployments, fiber restoral activities and Internet backbone connectivity over satellite for regional telecom operators.
