OTTAWA, June 23, 2020 – C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSXV: CMI), the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of commercial grade, auto-acquire mobile satellite antenna systems, announced today that it has completed integration of the Comtech EF Data branded Heights™ Networking Platform with the Company’s iNetVu® antenna controllers. The latest Comtech VSAT networking platform, which encompasses several new modems, notably the H-Plus Remote Gateway, is now fully compatible with all C-COM Flyaway and Driveaway antenna systems.
Using the Comtech EF Data H-Plus Remote Gateway and testing over the SES-3 (103W) satellite, C-COM’s 98cm Ku-band flyaway and driveaway antenna systems configured with the iNetVu® 7710 controller, were able to seamlessly acquire satellite in under 2 minutes, and connect to the network.
C-COM’s ‘Best in Class’ antenna controllers offer interoperability with 14 different modem manufacturers and with more than 35 different models.
“We are happy to add Comtech EF Data’s highly advanced networking platform to our list of approved and integrated RF equipment,” said Leslie Klein, President & CEO of C-COM Satellite Systems, Inc. “C-COM and Comtech EF Data have been collaborating for many years. Our iNetVu products are already integrated with 7 unique Comtech EF Data modems, and it’s nice to see the innovation continue with the Heights product line,” Klein continued.
“The interoperability of our Heights Networking Platform with the C-COM flyaway and driveaway antenna systems will enable users to leverage high performance, efficient and reliable connectivity solutions for demanding mobility applications,” commented Louis Dubin, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Marketing of Comtech EF Data.
