Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Awarded $1.1 Million Order for Infrastructure Equipment to Support Mobile Backhaul Network Expansion in Saudi Arabia

November 8, 2017– Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL)
announced today that during its first quarter of fiscal 2018, its Tempe,
Arizona-based subsidiary, Comtech EF Data Corp., which is part of
Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, was awarded a $1.1 million order
for infrastructure equipment from NOVAsat, a leading systems integrator
in Saudi Arabia. The equipment will be utilized by a large mobile
network operator to expand its existing Comtech EF Data-based mobile
backhaul network to support both fixed and mobile users.

To support the network expansion, the mobile operator will employ the CDM-760
Advanced High-Speed Trunking and Broadcast Modem, which provides maximum
link efficiencies at high speeds via its industry-leading DVB-S2
Efficiency Boost technology and the CDM-625A
Advanced Satellite Modem, equipped with the VersaFEC®-2
Forward Error Correction to provide the best application performance for
medium- to low-speed links. Both modems feature the DoubleTalk®
Carrier-in-Carrier® bandwidth re-use technique to provide
optimal economics. Also, Comtech EF Data’s FX Optimization solutions and
intelligent LPOD Ku-Band Block Up Converter (BUC) will be utilized.

The mobile operator will leverage innovations within these products to
support different end user applications, including the high-speed
backhaul of 2G and 3G traffic of up to 70 Mbps to fixed remote sites and
to temporary 3G installations. Additionally, the solution suite will
provide on-demand support for customers and high-speed connectivity to
Mobile-on-Wheels vehicles that provide bandwidth when and where needed
on a temporary basis, whether for scheduled events or unexpected
purposes such as for disaster recovery communications.

“This mobile operator will harness the horsepower and flexibility of the
Comtech EF Data product suite to support a diverse set of
bandwidth-hungry applications,” commented Fred Kornberg, President and
Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “We are
