Comtech Receives Contract to Provide Emergency Alerting System for Carrier
Tuesday, July 20, 2021 | Comments

Comtech Telecommunications received a $7.1 million multi-year contract for the deployment of a cellular-based Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) solution with a tier-one mobile network operator. This is Comtech’s first major award for a WEA solution.

Comtech will install the containerized WEA solution consisting of a commercial mobile service provider (CMSP) gateway and cell broadcast center (CBC). This service allows the citizens in the area to receive government-issued alerts on their mobile devices warning them of imminent threats to life and property based on location, such as tornado warning alerts. The Comtech WEA solution supports the latest FCC WEA requirements as well as the operator’s LTE and 5G networks.

“This public-safety centered application aligns with Comtech's focus on improving emergency-related communications,” said Fred Kornberg, chairman of the board and CEO of Comtech Telecommunications. “We are honored this customer has chosen Comtech for this vital solution to help protect citizens in times of crisis.”
