Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Announced SES Networks has Adopted the Heights™ Network Platform for its Hybrid Resiliency Solution

TEMPE, Ariz. –
June 14, 2017 — Comtech Telecommunications Corp.’s Tempe,
Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of
Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, announced today that it has
installed a Heights Network Platform for SES Networks’ hybrid resilience
solution.

SES Networks will use the Heights Network Platform to deliver
high-availability services to its premium customers in Asia-Pacific. The
fully-managed solution leverages the wide coverage of Geostationary
Earth Orbit satellites and low latency capabilities of Medium Earth
Orbit satellites to provide diverse network paths that are vital in the
delivery of carrier-class services. When operational, this resilient
solution will enable the use of the best choice path for traffic,
whether an alternative path for all of the traffic, or for traffic of
the highest value. SES Networks is the newly-formed data-centric
business unit of SES, the world-leading satellite operator.

Designed with the service provider in mind, Heights is a scalable
satellite networking platform that meets the evolving demands of a
diverse multi-tenant end user community. It addresses the needs of all
major market verticals with the most network efficient and powerful
platform in the industry. Heights leverages a single comprehensive user
interface teamed with a powerful traffic analytics engine that allows
easy design, implementation, monitoring, control and optimization of
networks.

Different market verticals benefit from implementing Heights by
resolving many of the service challenges they face. There is the need to
create service differentiation through supporting multiple business
models on one platform to increase market share. Comtech EF Data’s
approach is to minimize OPEX through increased bandwidth efficiency to
create new revenue streams, offer better value to customers, and control
CAPEX through a scalable equipment platform to maximize profits. The
company’s solutions meet the increased market demand for higher
throughput capabilities, support increasingly complex satellite
networks, and dynamically provide global connectivity where and when
customers need it.

“We are happy to enable SES Networks to provide differentiated services
via purpose-built satellite networking solutions that provide the
Quality of Experience required across a number of demanding application
mixes,” said Andy Lucas, Senior Vice President of Satellite Market
Verticals of Comtech EF Data. Lucas further added, “We look forward to
