MELVILLE, N.Y.-- September 15, 2020-- Comtech Telecommunications Corp. (NASDAQ:CMTL), a world leader in secure and highly reliable location, public safety, navigation, and communication technologies, announced today its Location Technologies group, a division of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, has finalized a contract renewal for location-based services (“LBS”) with Telefonica, one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world with operations in Europe and Latin America.
Telefonica uses Comtech Location Technologies' global location services solution for their machine-to-machine communication requirements and customer use cases.
More information from Telefonica:
Internet of things (IoT) customers usually have large bases of deployed devices in remote locations. One of the requirements most demanded by this type of customer is to be able to know the location of their devices in real time and to be able to control it. To know the location of the deployed devices is important to optimize the routes of the maintenance field workers. To control the location of deployed devices is also important to prevent fraudulent uses of the devices in unwanted locations.
Telefonica uses Comtech technology to build location services in its IoT connectivity management Kite Platform. With Kite customers have the geo location of their devices in real time. Furthermore, it allows customers to control location changes by associating automatic actions like notifications or deactivation of services.
Kite Platform is much more than an IoT connectivity management platform and improves the whole IoT ecosystem dimensions, from the device to the cloud. It is an in-house developed solution with a dedicated network infrastructure that is globally deployed and hosted in the cloud, accessible everywhere via web or API.
“We are pleased to continue working with this innovative customer who has leveraged Comtech’s location technology to implement several dynamic applications that have contributed to the success of their company,” said Fred Kornberg, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “Our strong customer relationships help us understand their business challenges and enable the right solutions to be deployed.”
