RecepTec Recognized By Frost & Sullivan for Satellite Radio Antenna Systems Market Leadership

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan recently presented its 2006 Market Leadership of the Year Award to RecepTec, LLC in recognition of its technology proficiency and market leadership attributes that have enabled it to become the leader in the North American satellite radio antenna systems market.

"RecepTec's strong emphasis on developing customer-focused satellite radio antenna systems has helped it rapidly penetrate the market, which is further helped by its global research and development and marketing teams," said Frost & Sullivan industry analyst Sandeep Kar. "The company enjoys significant brand equity in its market as a supplier of innovative and technologically advanced antenna systems that complement the antenna integration philosophies of automakers and Tier 1 suppliers."

Radio is the most preferred infotainment medium for drivers, and, given the large population of light vehicles in North America, the growth potential of the satellite radio market is enormous. RecepTec's continuous introduction of highly advanced and powerful antenna systems has been instrumental in bringing satellite radios to light vehicles in North America.

With automakers actively incorporating satellite radio in their vehicles, rapidly decreasing prices, and the addition of features in plug-and-play devices, the satellite radio market is likely to experience long-term growth.

RecepTec has established itself firmly as the market share leader in this emerging market, generating over 70 percent of the market's revenues in North America. The company offers antenna systems directly to automakers in North America and also to Tier 1 suppliers.

RecepTec manufactures satellite radio antennas that can receive both XM and Sirius satellite radio broadcasts. Six low-cost manufacturing locations in North America, Europe and Asia and technical centers in Michigan and Hildesheim, Germany allow the company to deliver its antennas to vehicle makers in these three continents at attractive prices. RecepTec supplies satellite radio antennas to almost all of the world's major vehicle makers, as well as to major audio brand names serving the automobile, home, and boat aftermarkets.

The company continuously integrates advanced reception capabilities into its product line and decreasing the form-factors of its products. The testing and validation programs of the company put its products through several extensive full vehicle and ground plane antenna simulations, thereby ensuring reliable performance of its vehicle-mounted antenna systems.

"RecepTec's comprehensive R&D expertise in satellite radio signal reception technologies and its strong relationships with vehicle makers, satellite radio systems manufacturers, and service providers will enable it to capitalize on its early-mover advantage and continue to lead the market in the coming years," reiterates Kar.

Frost & Sullivan presents this Award each year to a company that has exhibited market share leadership by implementing market strategy. The Award lauds excellence in all areas of the market leadership process, including the identification of market challenges, drivers and restraints, as well as strategy development and methods of addressing these market dynamics.

Application transformation and DevOps practices are two sides of the same coin. Enterprises that want to capture value faster, need to deliver value faster – time value of money principle. To do that enterprises need to build cloud-native apps as microservices by empowering teams to build, ship, and run in production. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Neil Gehani, senior product manager at HPE, discussed what every business should plan for how to structure their teams to delive...
Without lifecycle traceability and visibility across the tool chain, stakeholders from Planning-to-Ops have limited insight and answers to who, what, when, why and how across the DevOps lifecycle.

IT leaders face a monumental challenge. They must figure out how to sort through the cacophony of new technologies, buzzwords, and industry hype to find the right digital path forward for their organizations. And they simply cannot afford to fail. Those organizations that are fastest to the right digital path will be the ones that win. The path forward, however, is strewn with the legacy of decisions made long ago — often before any of the current leadership team assumed their roles. While it’s ...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, discussed how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galera MyS...
As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud: This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence.
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

Logs are continuous digital records of events generated by all components of your software stack – and they’re everywhere – your networks, servers, applications, containers and cloud infrastructure just to name a few. The data logs provide are like an X-ray for your IT infrastructure. Without logs, this lack of visibility creates operational challenges for managing modern applications that drive today’s digital businesses.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
