Location and navigation leader to demonstrate how operators can
utilize existing core LTE network infrastructures to extend location
services to support new 5G architectures
MELVILLE, N.Y. & LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–June 11, 2019 –Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (Nasdaq: CMTL), a world
leader in secure and highly reliable location, navigation and
communication technology, today announced during the 5G
World 2019 its Enterprise Technologies group, which is part of
Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, is showcasing its latest
virtualized location solutions available to global mobile network
operators, enterprises and IoT developers. The presentation and exhibit
is taking place June 11th -13th at the ExCel
Convention Center in London. Comtech will demonstrate how current LTE
network capabilities can be extended to support the transition to 5G.
Among the driving forces behind 5G is the promise of new applications
built on networks capable of delivering high throughput and connection
densities, along with ultra-high reliability and low latencies. Built
using Network Function Virtualization (“NFV”) and Software Defined
Networks (“SDN”) concepts, this newest generation of mobile networks
will be of great significance to mobile network operators looking to
build new revenue streams from various industry verticals. An important
part of the new network’s capabilities is high-accuracy positioning that
not only enables operators to meet specific regulatory requirements but
also enhances many revenue-generating applications and services. During
5G World 2019, Comtech’s Technical Fellow Kal Krishnan will participate
in a panel discussion outlining strategies to simplify mobile networks,
including how operators can extend existing core LTE network location
infrastructure to support the new 5G architecture.
In addition, Comtech experts will be available to discuss:
IoT Location: With its new radio and next-generation core
network, 5G networks are designed to support massive connection
densities which will serve as a fundamental technology enabler for IoT.
Comtech’s IoT Location Platform (“ILP”) is capable of locating a wide
range of devices with low-power demands that communicate using a variety
of cellular and non-cellular wide area networks. During 5G World 2019,
Comtech will demonstrate how this platform enables seamless indoor and
outdoor location positioning and data assistance services for any IoT
device or application, including implementations via partnerships with
Arm Mbed and Samsung ARTIK IoT platforms.
Indoor/Outdoor Location Services: Comtech delivers seamless
indoor/outdoor location services and applications to wireless operators,
enterprises and other organizations, enabling precise measurement of

on hand to demonstrate these distinct capabilities, as well as how they
can be paired with Comtech’s mapping solution to develop applications or
services for tracking connected devices within a specific venue.
Location Studio: Comtech’s complete end-to-end location platform
for mobile carriers, application developers and enterprises looking for
a seamless solution for building or enhancing cloud-based, embedded and
hybrid location-based applications. The platform includes multiple
modular technology suites that provide a rich set of functionalities,
