Comtech EF Data Announces Heights™ Networking Platform Selected by Orange Business Services for Multiple NGO Relief Projects in Africa

TEMPE, Ariz. –
April 16, 2018– Comtech EF Data Corp., a subsidiary of Comtech
Telecommunications Corp.’s (NASDAQ: CMTL) Commercial Solutions segment,
announced today that Orange Business Services selected the Heights
Networking Platform to support relief projects for a large
Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in two African countries.

The Heights hub was implemented at the Orange teleport in France. The
first Heights Remote Gateways will be deployed in Africa to provide
mission-critical connectivity, enabling essential peace-keeping mission
operations. The installation of the Heights hub in France offers Orange
Business Services the ability to quickly deploy and commission new
remotes in additional countries on the African continent as new
peace-keeping requirements arise.

The Heights
Networking Platform
was designed with the carrier grade service
provider and its multi-user environments in mind. It combines the
industry’s most efficient waveforms, the evolutionary Heights Dynamic
Network Access (H-DNA) dynamic network access technology, header and
payload compression engines, Wide Area Network (WAN) & GPRS Tunneling
Protocol (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.

“Considering the tough conditions in which our customer was operating,
they required a heightened QoS with high network availability and
reliability to undertake critical functions,” said Eric Piquet, Director
of Satellite Solutions for Orange Business Services. “After reviewing,
testing and fully vetting all platform solution options, we chose
Comtech EF Data’s Heights solution for this project due to its ability
to meet these stringent requirements, while offering the best
combination of platform throughput, application performance, efficiency
and hub scalability.”

“This is an additional example of the service providers’ maturing
requirements into our product sweet spots as best effort connectivity is
simply no longer sufficient for mission-critical operations,” said Steve
Good, Senior Vice President, Premium Enterprise for Comtech EF Data. “We
are proud that Orange Business Services put its trust in Comtech EF
Data. Our solution will facilitate the delivery of the service levels
that Orange Business Services’ customers deserve while allowing for
immediate throughput growth without the need for remote site revisits,
which can be costly and dangerous.”
