MELVILLE, N.Y. -- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq:CMTL) announced today that its Tempe, Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., received three orders totaling $6.2 million for satellite communications equipment. The equipment will be utilized by two Asian operators and one Middle Eastern operator to support and expand their satellite-based cellular backhaul networks.

While the orders specify a range of different products, the anchor product for all three orders is the CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem with DoubleTalk(R) Carrier-in-Carrier(R). Released earlier this year, the CDM-625 Advanced Satellite Modem builds on Comtech EF Data's legacy of providing bandwidth-efficient satellite modems. It is the first modem to combine Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes with the revolutionary DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier bandwidth compression allowing for maximum savings under all conditions.

Carrier-in-Carrier is based on Applied Signal Technology's DoubleTalk bandwidth compression technology. DoubleTalk uses "Adaptive Cancellation," a patented technology that allows the transmit and receive carriers of a full-duplex satellite link to be transmitted in the same transponder space. When combined with advanced forward error correction and modulation techniques, DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier can deliver unprecedented operating expense savings. In addition, DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier can provide capital expenditure savings by allowing a smaller BUC/HPA and/or antenna.

"Our CDM-625 modem with DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier continues to be adopted globally by service providers," said Fred Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. "The bandwidth efficiencies provided by the revolutionary DoubleTalk Carrier-in-Carrier technology are being leveraged to address satellite capacity challenges."
