Comtech Telecommunication Corp. reached an agreement to provide The Heights Networking Platform service to manage Chinese satellite communications. Business Wire notes that Comtech has received $1.6 million in orders from China Mobile, the country’s largest Mobile Network Operator (MNO).
“We are excited that this MNO selected our Heights solution to support its mobile services over satellite today and to prepare for the future roll out of 5G services,” said SVP Richard Swardhm, MNO of Comtech EF Data. “We have yet again proven to have the highest quality of experience across all generations of mobile technology.”
China’s purchase will help shore up its existing mobile backhaul and aid with teleport technologies. The technological boost is expected to help improve latency issues and minimize jitter. The Comtech EF Data Corp division is specifically focused on satellite bandwidth efficiency and link optimization.
“I am pleased that Comtech was selected to provide our Heights mobile backhaul solution for mobile end-customers based in China,” said Comtech Telecommunications Corp. CEO and Chairman Fred Kornberg. “I believe this order is evidence that Comtech’s advanced satellite ground station technologies are essential, especially during a time of difficult conditions caused by the coronavirus. I am cautiously optimistic, that as normal conditions eventually return, additional orders from new customers will be received in the future.”
