Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Awarded $1.4 Million Order from Global Satellite Operator to Enhance High Throughput Satellite Connectivity Options

March 22, 2018– Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ: CMTL)
announced today that during its third 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 $1.4 million
infrastructure equipment order from a global satellite operator. The
satellite operator will continue to team Comtech EF Data products with
its innovative High Throughput Satellite (HTS) options to offer
unparalleled price for performance levels to its customer base, which
will create new markets while keeping satellite connectivity competitive
within international regions with increased terrestrial options.

The order specified Comtech EF Data’s CDM-760
Advanced High-Speed Trunking and Broadcast Modem
. The CDM-760 offers
user data rates of over a Gigabit per second and was designed to be the
market’s most efficient, highest throughput, point-to-point trunking and
broadcast modem. The modem leverages 256-APSK modulation, DVB-S2X and
bi-directional Adaptive Coding and Modulation operation, which is the
most advanced combination of space segment saving capabilities
minimizing overhead.

The operator will utilize the CDM-760 modems for ultra-high-speed trunk
circuits that will support an array of applications, including regional
Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) deployments, fiber restoral
activities and Internet backbone connectivity over satellite for
regional telecom operators. The CDM-760, a market driven and
purpose-built product that allows satellite operators and service
providers to meet the increased demands of their cross-vertical end user
base, continues to be enhanced to match the groundbreaking increase in
performance levels that new satellite designs offer. The combination of
space and ground innovations offer the ability to support significantly
higher throughputs, particularly in the inbound direction from remote
locations to central sites, to meet the requirements of end users that
wish to share multimedia content.

“The demands of our satellite operator customer base have grown
substantially over the past few years in terms of product performance
levels and reliability,” commented Fred Kornberg, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “We continue to
innovate our solutions to enable global and regional satellite operators
