Comtech Telecommunications announced that during its fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, its Trusted Location group, a division of Comtech’s Commercial Solutions segment, was awarded an agreement with a tier one operator in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to support their 5G standalone network. This is the second 5G project for Trusted Location in the KSA.
This mobile network operator will expand their current location technology platform for emergency response, safety, security, and value-added services. The operator will grow the 5G network within KSA, providing better performance to end users and meet new government mandates.
“Comtech is at the forefront of providing 5G location services in the Middle East and worldwide,” said Michael Porcelain, Chief Executive Officer of Comtech Telecommunications Corp. “Our innovation and strong partnerships are vital to pushing 5G globally. This technology will allow the network provider to precisely locate 5G mobile devices for safety and security purposes mandated by local governments.”
