Virgin Technologies Global Dealer Network Gaining Market Share

EDMONTON, AB--(Marketwired - June 01, 2015) - In the last three months Virgin Technologies has signed eight international resellers, including resellers in Africa, Sweden and the USA. Virgin Technologies manufacturers its own line of Ku and Ka auto-aiming satellite antennas, along with a wireless intercom system that provides any remote site an instant networked office with telephony.

Driving this momentum is an appetite in the marketplace for a well-established and proven product priced very aggressively for customers purchasing in American dollars. "I am finding that in marketplaces such as Latin America, customers are frustrated by the lack of choice and once they learn about our history and dealer network strategy, they have that 'ah ha!' moment," notes Virgin Technologies International Sales Engineer Douglas Girard. "It is very exciting to find customers who want to pass on our hard earned lessons to their customers around the world."

From a technology standpoint, Virgin has invested heavily into creating a trusted and reliable 1U DVB Controller so customers can move easily between different satellite providers. "After a couple of big international trade shows, we quickly recognized that the international marketplace requires modem independence so they can shop around and respond to their own needs," comments Virgin Technologies President Robert Smibert. "Our controller is extremely easy-to-use, and our training school and certification can be completed in a day or less -- that is a big deal compared to the complexity of many of our competitor's controllers."

The auto-aiming antenna marketplace internationally is very competitive, as companies continue to bring on smaller, lighter, and faster antennas, and many now with Ka band capability. One of the more exciting international developments is the highly anticipated Inmarsat's Global Xpress (GX - Satellite Inmarsat-5 F2) launch in the Americas, which will provide fast Ka band service. Accordingly Virgin recently integrated its modem into a Ka compatible format to ensure it can offer the Global Xpress service to meet the demands of the high appetite for high quality satellite coverage at residential or small business price points. "I am hearing a lot of excitement in the international marketplace for an antenna and controller ready to go with Global Express," notes Girard. "Again, being able to pass that along to our international dealer network gives them another great reason to trust Virgin as their antenna manufacturer of choice."
