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.

Thanks to Docker and the DevOps revolution, microservices have emerged as the new way to build and deploy applications — and there are plenty of great reasons to embrace the microservices trend. If you are going to adopt microservices, you also have to understand that microservice architectures have many moving parts. When it comes to incident management, this presents an important difference between microservices and monolithic architectures. More moving parts mean more complexity to monitor an...

Microservices (μServices) are a fascinating evolution of the Distributed Object Computing (DOC) paradigm. Initial design of DOC attempted to solve the problem of simplifying developing complex distributed applications by applying object-oriented design principles to disparate components operating across networked infrastructure. In this model, DOC “hid” the complexity of making this work from the developer regardless of the deployment architecture through the use of complex frameworks, such as C...
What if you could build a web application that could support true web-scale traffic without having to ever provision or manage a single server? Sounds magical, and it is! In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Munns, Senior Developer Advocate for Serverless Applications at Amazon Web Services, will show how to build a serverless website that scales automatically using services like AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, and Amazon S3. We will review several frameworks that can help you build serverle...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
As Enterprise business moves from Monoliths to Microservices, adoption and successful implementations of Microservices become more evident. The goal of Microservices is to improve software delivery speed and increase system safety as scale increases. Documenting hurdles and problems for the use of Microservices will help consultants, architects and specialists to avoid repeating the same mistakes and learn how and when to use (or not use) Microservices at the enterprise level. The circumstance w...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

In his General Session at 16th Cloud Expo, David Shacochis, host of The Hybrid IT Files podcast and Vice President at CenturyLink, investigated three key trends of the “gigabit economy" though the story of a Fortune 500 communications company in transformation. Narrating how multi-modal hybrid IT, service automation, and agile delivery all intersect, he will cover the role of storytelling and empathy in achieving strategic alignment between the enterprise and its information technology.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
