Comtech EF Data Receives $1.4 Million Equipment Order from Asian Maritime Service Provider

Comtech EF Data, the Arizona-based subsidiary of Comtech Telecommunications, has received a $1.4 million equipment order from a major maritime service provider in Asia for Block Up Converters and RF Transceivers. The service provider, a long-standing customer of Comtech EF Data, specified the Heights Networking Platform and complementary RF products, including the LPOD Block Up Converters and the MBT-4000 Multi-Band RF Transceivers. After an exhaustive evaluation of VSAT platforms, Heights was selected as the best fit for the service provider’s demanding maritime applications, which include maritime safety, maritime traffic administration, fishing and environmental protection.

With the growth of the requirements of this service provider, it requires the most powerful and efficient VSAT platform, capable of delivering the highest possible data rate in its most demanding of maritime environments. The customer also requires the same level of industry-leading reliability and flexibility that it experiences with its existing installed base of networking products previously supplied by Comtech EF Data. The Heights Networking Platform was selected as an ideal solution, demonstrating both greatly increased efficiency and economics while retaining the value and extending the useful life of the existing antennas and BUC/LNBs.

The Heights point-to-multipoint satellite networking platform, according to Comtech, is currently deployed in similar networks all around the world, delivering cost-effective, robust and reliable operation in the most demanding applications.
