||Microspace Celebrates 15th Anniversary
Raleigh Mayor Proclaims “Microspace Communications Day”
Joe Amor is GM of Microspace.
In the still-young business of video, audio and data content delivery by satellite, Microspace Communications Corporation (Microspace) is a true veteran. April marks the 15th anniversary for the Raleigh, NC-based company, which has maintained consistent revenue performance since its inception – a fact made all the more impressive given the otherwise depressed state of the telecommunications industry. As part of the celebration, April 7-14 has been proclaimed as “Microspace Communications Day” in the city of Raleigh by the office of the Mayor.
Looking ahead, Microspace GM Joe Amor is enthusiastic about the company’s prospects. “We’ve become the acknowledged leader in several key vertical markets, and are growing our client base in several more. Most recently, we’ve introduced our VELOCITY® satellite delivery service to Europe, with a flagship client that establishes our credibility in that part of the world. We’re gratified that our growth over the past 15 years has remained consistent, despite global economic downturns that have challenged many of our competitors.”
Microspace was founded by Capitol Broadcasting Company in 1988. The company is now at the forefront of “point-to-multipoint” delivery of broadband content (also known as broadcast or multicast technology). For applications ranging from distance learning and broadcast television to content for retail kiosks, Microspace technology has won the loyalty of many of the country’s largest businesses. Microspace’s market dominance includes the following highlights:
- Service to 11 of the top 13 providers of financial information
- Service to providers of 75 percent of all weather information
- Recognized market leadership in delivery of music to businesses
Of particular value to its clients – which include such well known names as Morgan Stanley and Muzak – is Microspace’s unique “fixed price” concept. A client’s monthly cost of service is unaffected by usage or the number of sites that make up the satellite network. Bandwidth increases can be accomplished in a matter of minutes. Some clients have saved as much as 98 percent by switching from terrestrial content delivery to Microspace’s VELOCITY service without sacrificing quality or reliability.
“In today’s economy, some companies are happy just to be in business,” said Amor. “Microspace continues to build on our past success, has become an acknowledged leader in its core markets, and significant international growth. It’s been a terrific 15 years, and we’re looking forward to even greater growth.”
