Comtech EF Data Maintains Market Dominance in SCPC and Wireless Backhaul

Comtech EF Data Corp. announced today that in the recently published 8th Edition of the Wireless Backhaul, Trunking and Video Offload via Satellite report by Northern Sky Research (NSR), it was identified as the dominant industry participant for both Single Channel per Carrier (SCPC) equipment and the overall wireless backhaul market.

The report identifies steady growth and backhaul capacity demand for the fixed land-based towers market. However, the market opportunities are shifting towards new satellite technologies, such as GEO-HTS and MEO-HTS, as a result of the demand for higher throughputs and lower cost bandwidth solutions for sustained revenue growth. The Asian market is forecast to have the most demand for bandwidth globally for satellite-based backhaul, followed by Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Middle East/North Africa. Comtech EF Data is partnering with both GEO-HTS and MEO-HTS providers to continue to play a significant role in supporting Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in all of these referenced growth regions.

Several examples of Comtech’s strategic partnerships were cited in the report. Comtech’s partnership with Intelsat, one of the largest providers of capacity for wireless backhaul, is expected to put it in a strategic position with the rollout of the Intelsat EpicNG fleet. Also, Harris CapRock Communications’ decision to serve its maritime customer base, including Royal Caribbean’s global fleet along with networks for customer operations in the Gulf of Mexico, with Comtech’s Advanced VSAT Solution suite could potentially lead to higher inroads in the mobile maritime market for Comtech. Additionally, the report references that Comtech’s partnership with Cobham SATCOM should likewise lead to higher inroads in the maritime sector.

“Compared to other equipment vendors, Comtech EF Data is by far the largest in terms of publicly announced orders,” commented Jose Del Rosario, Research Director for NSR. “Comtech continues to be the dominant player for both SCPC equipment and the overall wireless backhaul market.”

This 8th Edition report analyzes current and upcoming programs for the wireless backhaul and trunking via satellite market. It overviews the market potential in three inter-related yet distinct market segments where a product and service roadmap could lead to risk-taking and strategic enhancements for provisioning next-generation services, specifically 3G/4G and video offload services. A new market segment, Video Offload, is also assessed for the first time ever in the industry, a segment which could offer emerging opportunities for satellite companies to offload mobile video traffic in all markets.

“We appreciate the validation by this prominent research and consulting firm that our efforts in developing and delivering purpose-built and future-looking products have enabled MNOs globally to expand their service offerings, control costs and meet customer requirements,” said Daniel Enns, Senior Vice President for Comtech EF Data.

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
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...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

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.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
