MELVILLE, N.Y. -- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., obtained a $2.2 million order for satellite communications equipment. A mobile operator in South America will utilize the equipment to support a cellular backhaul network expansion.

The order encompasses CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modems with DoubleTalk(R) Carrier-in-Carrier(R) and CSAT C-Band Transceivers. The CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem combines revolutionary technologies, including DoubleTalk(R) Carrier-in-Carrier(R) bandwidth compression, Low Density Parity Check codes and the recently introduced next-generation forward error correction, VersaFEC(R). The CDM-625's advanced technologies facilitate maximum bandwidth efficiencies, which are principally advantageous in regions where satellite capacity is limited, such as South America.

The CSAT Transceivers provide superior performance, long-term reliability and ease of installation. The units are designed for use in communication systems or satellite uplink data systems for the reception of SCPC/MCPC, DAMA and TDMA communication signals. The CSAT is environmentally sealed and is designed to be hard mounted on or near the antenna structure.

"The bandwidth efficiencies in our products will enable the cost-effective network expansion in a region that continues to experience substantial cellular subscriber growth," said Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp.
