Season’s Greetings 2019

News

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

As the holiday season is upon us, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year and those who have helped to shape our business.

As Inmarsat is celebrating 40 years in the industry, we can actually celebrate sharing their journey for the last 20 years. Our partnership is not only of historical value but is continuously developing. We look forward to our ongoing journey with Inmarsat, the partners and surrounding community.

Earlier this year we also reached a milestone in the form of more than 100.000 Inmarsat BGAN terminals licensed with the GateHouse Protocol Stack. The growing number reflects the great value of mature software in an ever-evolving industry. We are proud to contribute to terminals used for mission critical purposes all over the world and in all segments. However, it would not be possible without the cooperation and dedication of our many long-term partners and customers in the terminal manufacturing industry. A big thank you, to all of you for contributing to and sharing in our success.

As for our efforts within off air testing, we have seen some remarkable cases for the use of our link and network emulators. Customers in the aviation industry, in particular, have achieved great results with the controlled test environment provided by our test tools. IoT cases are also beginning to appear providing new test cases. It is truly inspiring to continuously see new ways our emulators are being put to use.

This past year has also been a year of change and growth for GateHouse Telecom. With new faces and capabilities joining our team we have broadened our area of business to now include emerging smallsat related business. The satellite market is looking into an exciting future where satellite communication and connectivity via satellites will play a far greater role than today. The use of low-cost, small satellites will open the mobile satellite market for more than just a few network operators, and GateHouse will be ready for that. We are currently exploring how 3GPP NarrowBand-IoT can be used for small satellites to enable cost-efficient and secure satellite communication for specific needs of IoT. We have received preliminary approval from the European Space Agency (ESA) for potential funding, and we hope to announce more on this soon. Our long history in the satellite industry has given GateHouse Telecom a strong technical foundation and we look forward to catering to the needs of an even more diverse satellite communication market for many years to come.

As to a more physical change for the new decade, we are moving into a bigger, new-build office space next year. It is planned to finish in the summer of 2020, and we hope many of you will come by for a look and also for an update on our new business areas and strategies.

It is our hope that 2019 has been just as memorable for you, your colleagues and your loved ones, as it has been for us.

Season’s greetings and best wishes for the new year

IDRS and LEO satellites

November 11, 2019 in Spotlight

SmallSats and CubeSats in Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) have for many years been limited by the short ground station overpass time (around ten minutes per overpass). The use of LEO satellites for real-time applications have therefore been restricted.

UAV Development

November 5, 2019 in Spotlight

The market for unmanned aerial vehicles, or simply UAVs, is booming. But with high demand follows the risk of rushed development. A good example is Beyond Line of Sight operations that have opened new possibilities but also implied new risks of both loss of connection, data or even the UAV itself.
