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.

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?
"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.
They are not.
One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...
