Comtech Telecommunications Corp.’s Enterprise Technologies group has been awarded a $10.1 million multi-year contract from a major U.S. mobile network operator for its hosted, advanced location-services platform. The order includes development, deployment and support.

The Comtech platform leverages its Position Determining Engine to deliver precise location information of devices for applications such as turn-by-turn navigation, family finder and remote workforce management.

Secure and completely standards-based, the solution is hosted outside the operator’s network and ensures interoperability across all device providers,  the company said.

“Network operators require their location services platform to be reliable, accurate, scalable and secure – and we have delivered on all fronts,” said Fred Kornberg, president and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications. “We are honored to be chosen by this customer and believe that this agreement again validates our industry-leading expertise in deploying advanced location services.”

Comtech Telecommunications designs, develops, produces and markets innovative products, systems and services for advanced communications solutions. The company sells products to a diverse customer base in the global commercial and government communications markets.
