Raising Our Game Across Our Markets

Events like the recent 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas and the upcoming CommunicAsia 2017 in Singapore are a chance to step back from the day-to-day and see what is happening.  What we see is expansion and opportunity in the markets we serve, driven by innovations large and small.

More Video in Less Bandwidth for the Enterprise

At NAB 2017, Globecomm announced that it was implementing technology from partner Kollective that improves the performance of video content within the enterprise network.  As every network manager knows, the explosion in the use of video can place a big burden on bandwidth.  Globecomm’s interactive, cloud-based enterprise video platform was recently enhanced with the Kollective Software Defined Network, which uses clever content-sharing technology to minimize the number of new video streams that hit the network.  It helps ensure that local and remote office locations have access to any content they need at every desktop, tablet or smartphone in the enterprise.

Integrating HTS into Customer Solutions

At NAB 2017, Globecomm’s Paul Scardino was interviewed for the World Teleport Association’s Executive Dialogues series.  He described how the company is managing the satellite industry’s gradual transition to high-throughput architectures.  HTS is typically a managed service from the satellite operator, which can reduce the flexibility of a service provider like Globecomm to craft custom solutions.  But he reports that satellite operators are wisely diversifying their offerings, so that service-provider customers like Globecomm can use HTS capacity in new applications like the Industrial Internet of Things.

Satellite Innovation a Key Topic at NAB 2017 Panel

Globecomm’s chief commercial officer Bryan McGuirk shared our company’s view of technology innovation and its impact on satellite at an NAB Show panel organized by the Satellite Industry Association.  He joined executives from Inmarsat and CEO Nathan Kundtz of Kymeta Corporation to portray an industry on the move, thanks to technologies from high-throughput satellites to the new generation of flat panel antennas.

“There is an intersection of trends that point to real opportunity ahead,” Bryan told the audience.  “Customer requirements are growing by a factor of ten, while capacity prices are declining, though much more slowly.  That’s a recipe for growth.”
