Comtech Telecommunications Corp. Awarded Significant Order for Heights™ Networking Platform from SES Networks
This award is focused on the high-end mobility maritime market with an emphasis on cruise ships, but with the capability of supporting other maritime applications. This follows on from other recent awards addressing requirements in the Enterprise and Mobile Network Operator vertical markets, and further demonstrates SES Networks’ trust in Comtech EF Data’s products to deliver solutions where the utmost performance, robustness, efficiency and quality of experience counts.
Supporting SES Networks’ growing mobility business, the order specified multiple Heights™ Networking Platform hubs, H-Pro Remote Gateways, HX Series Load Balancing and NetVue™ Integrated Management System. The integration of Comtech EF Data’s Heights™ Networking Platform and the HX Load Balancing equipment will allow links on multiple transponders to be aggregated to provide high throughput services.
The Heights™ Networking Platform was designed with the carrier grade service provider and its multi-user environments in mind. It combines advanced mobility features including Global Roaming, Automatic Beam Switching and an integrated mobility controller with the industry's most efficient waveforms, the evolutionary Heights™ Dynamic Network Access (“H-DNA”) dynamic network access technology, header and payload compression engines, 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. This combination makes the HeightsTM Networking Platform the ideal mobility solution for serving super yachts, merchant shipping, seismic survey ships, drilling rigs and oil & gas production facilities.
