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.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
