(By Balaseshan) Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL) said its unit Comtech EF Data Corp. received a DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier bandwidth compression order worth $1.5 million from a telecommunications service provider in Asia-Pacific.
Comtech said the service provider will utilize the technology to facilitate a network expansion and to deliver new services to rural villages.
With satellite bandwidth prices on the rise in Asia, service providers are seeking technology solutions to increase throughput and reduce operating expenses so they can remain competitive and continue offering affordable services.
This service provider is upgrading fielded DMD50 Universal Satellite Modems with DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier, which is based on Raytheon Applied Signal Technology's patented "Adaptive Cancellation" technology.
DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier allows transmit and receive carriers of a duplex link to share the same transponder space.
When combined with advanced forward error correction and modulation techniques, DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier minimizes operating expenses/capital expenditure and maximizes throughput/availability without additional transponder resources.
