Comtech EF Data Expands Heights™ Networking Platform Portfolio with New and Innovative Remote Gateways

TEMPE, Ariz. –
March 6, 2018– Comtech EF Data Corp., a subsidiary within Comtech
Telecommunications Corp.’s (NASDAQ: CMTL) Commercial Solutions segment,
announced today that it expanded its Heights Networking Platform
portfolio to include three new and innovative Remote Gateways. The new
Remote Gateways include both indoor and outdoor models – the indoor
H-Plus Remote Gateway, and two outdoor units, the H-Plus-ODU Remote
Gateway and the H-Pro-ODU Remote Gateway. The offerings provide
customers with targeted Heights and Single Channel Per Carrier (SCPC)
solutions to address specific market needs and technology trends that
are shaping the satellite communications community.

The H-Plus Remote Gateway is aptly named. It gives customers the
flexibility to choose between Hub and Spoke VSAT connectivity “Plus” the
option to run in true SCPC mode. Providers that are targeting mid-tier
VSAT services or that would prefer to start with a simple hub-less SCPC
network can utilize a single device that allows them to convert from
true point-to-point SCPC mode of operation to Hub and Spoke VSAT
operation without changing hardware.

The H-Plus Remote Gateway offers tremendous flexibility for future
applications. In addition to the powerful quad-core standard onboard
processor, it incorporates an optional Single Board Computer (SBC) to
offload computationally intensive tasks and to provide a location where
both organic and third-party applications can reside. The combination of
multiple modes of operation and highly upgradeable computational
processing power provides service providers and their customers with the
long-term assurances they require when investing in satellite network

The Outdoor Units (ODU), the H-Plus-ODU Remote Gateway and the H-Pro-ODU
Remote Gateway, allow service providers and end users to move the entire
VSAT system onto an antenna and away from environmentally controlled
shelters. The outdoor package options reduce the overall power
consumption and footprint needed for a VSAT terminal. Moving the
electronics outdoors greatly reduces the power consumption, eliminates
valuable shelter space and cooling requirements that are typical with
indoor models.

“Our point-to-point SCPC hardware is the global standard for highly
efficient operation and best-in-class spectral efficiency,” commented
Louis Dubin, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Marketing for
Comtech EF Data. “With the new Remote Gateways, customers can now choose
to begin network services with SCPC simplicity and efficiency, and then
convert to the highly efficient and intelligent Heights Networking
Platform when the traffic and overall network dataflow makes sense.”

The Heights
Networking Platform
is engineered to elevate services with
unparalleled horsepower, efficiency and intelligence. The platform’s
features were designed with the service provider and its multi-user
environments in mind, from concept to operation. It combines the most
efficient waveforms, Heights Dynamic Network Access (H-DNA), header and
payload compression engines, WAN and 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.

Gateways, visit Comtech’s booth E273 at the Convergence
