According to an announcement by Comtech EF Data Corporation, the Company retained its position as the market leader of the Single Channel per Carrier (SCPC) equipment for satellite mobile backhaul.

Comtech cited the recently-released 6th Edition of the Wireless Backhaul via Satellite report by Northern Sky Research (NSR) as the source of its news. The NSR report identifies Comtech as the biggest provider of mobile backhaul equipment in the market for fixed land-based towers.

The fixed land-based towers market is a proposed market for developing countries. Asia, Sub Saharan Africa and Latin America dominates this sector, and rural populations constitute its core addressable market. The NSR report stated that Comtech EF Data plays a big role in delivering satellite-based backhaul to mobile network operators in those three aforementioned regions.

In addition, the NSR report assures that Comtech will receive strategic benefits from its partnerships with iPSTAR, O3b, and similar companies. The NSR based its prediction on an ongoing transition from current legacy systems to new-generation mobile backhaul solutions.
