TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 16, 2018-- Comtech EF Data Corp., a subsidiary of Comtech

Telecommunications Corp.’s (NASDAQ: CMTL) Commercial Solutions segment,

announced today that Orange Business Services selected the Heights

Networking Platform to support relief projects for a large

Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in two African countries.

The Heights hub was implemented at the Orange teleport in France. The

first Heights Remote Gateways will be deployed in Africa to provide

mission-critical connectivity, enabling essential peace-keeping mission

operations. The installation of the Heights hub in France offers Orange

Business Services the ability to quickly deploy and commission new

remotes in additional countries on the African continent as new

peace-keeping requirements arise.

Networking Platform was designed with the carrier grade service

provider and its multi-user environments in mind. It combines the

industry’s most efficient waveforms, the evolutionary Heights Dynamic

Network Access (H-DNA) dynamic network access technology, header and

payload compression engines, Wide Area Network (WAN) & GPRS Tunneling

Protocol (GTP) optimization, multi-tier Quality of Service (QoS), proven

dynamic bandwidth and power management along with bi-directional

Adaptive Coding & Modulation (ACM) capability to provide the highest

user throughput, highest availability, and most optimal resource

utilization available in the industry.

“Considering the tough conditions in which our customer was operating,

they required a heightened QoS with high network availability and

reliability to undertake critical functions,” said Eric Piquet, Director

of Satellite Solutions for Orange Business Services. “After reviewing,

testing and fully vetting all platform solution options, we chose

Comtech EF Data’s Heights solution for this project due to its ability

to meet these stringent requirements, while offering the best

combination of platform throughput, application performance, efficiency

and hub scalability.”

“This is an additional example of the service providers’ maturing

requirements into our product sweet spots as best effort connectivity is

simply no longer sufficient for mission-critical operations,” said Steve

Good, Senior Vice President, Premium Enterprise for Comtech EF Data. “We

are proud that Orange Business Services put its trust in Comtech EF

Data. Our solution will facilitate the delivery of the service levels

that Orange Business Services’ customers deserve while allowing for

immediate throughput growth without the need for remote site revisits,

which can be costly and dangerous.”
