The Advantages of Using SATX- The Independent Solution
Other companies that manufacture hardware or provide communications services may provide software which can be used in data broadcasting applications. However, in order to use their software, you must buy their hardware or use their service, and if you change hardware vendors or service providers later, guess what- you can no longer use their software. We think that's a bit silly. It would be like having to buy new communications or networking software every time you bought a new modem or a different computer.
Changing software frequently for a mission critical application can cause quite a disruption in your business operations. If you choose to use SATX, you won't have that problem. MTI is unique in that we provide software which can be used with a wide variety of data receivers and encoders. That's a real advantage because it means that, if you change hardware vendors or service providers after your system is set up, you can use the same software. Because it is the software, not the hardware, that largely determines how your data broadcasting operations are carried out, there are many advantages to staying with a consistent software solution over time.
Use SATX In Your Existing Systems-Without Buying New Hardware!
Are you already involved in data broadcasting? If so, do you want more capability than what you have, but don't want to buy new hardware? If yes, then read on. Most any feature that can be implemented in hardware can also be implemented in software, and usually with greater flexibility and lower cost.
Here are just a few things that you can usually do with an economical software upgrade, and possibly still keep your existing hardware-
Helping You Stay Focused
Don't Make This Common Mistake!!
We've seen it happen too many times before. A company charges forth on a great new project that utilizes data broadcasting technologies and suddenly it all comes to a screeching halt. Why? Because they decided to develop their own data broadcasting software. It didn't seem like that big of a job at the time, but it turned out to be a huge undertaking with complexities that went far beyond what they had first envisioned. We don't want you to make that same mistake! Here are just some of the ways you can stay focused on your own applications and projects when you use SATX and have MTI on your side.
You Don't Have To Be A Communications Expert
When you utilize SATX and the expertise of Milestone Technologies Inc., you don't have to worry about solving the unique challenges associated with data broadcasting. We've already done that. Your programmers don't have to learn how to write communications software either. And if you need help troubleshooting anything related to the communications aspect of your application, we are there to help you.
You Don't Have To Spend Time Updating A Communications Application
Technology is forcing us to change and adapt at a screaming pace today. These rapid changes may bring more capabilities, but they carry a price that you have to pay - like having to invest more time, money, effort, and manpower to modify your products, so that they work with new technologies. At MTI, we work very hard to insulate you from the disadvantages that come with that change. Here's some examples.
When you need a version of SATX to support a new operating system, we'll take care of that. Next year, when that new data receiver comes out, and it uses a new hardware interface, we will provide that for SATX. Our goal is to keep the part of SATX with which you interact pretty much the same regardless of the operating system, hardware interface, or particular application, to keep your job as streamlined as possible as technology changes. We know you will have your hands full just keeping up with your own applications.
Many Vendors? - One Solution
Has your company gone through a merger or a buyout? If so, you may already have data broadcast systems in place from different vendors, using various types of hardware, and even multiple communications service providers. How do you integrate all that and still use the hardware you have? The answer is SATX! We may be able to provide you with a software solution with a common front end and feature set, that interfaces with your existing data receivers. If you are in this situation, contact us, and let us investigate it for you.
Are You New To Data Broadcasting?
The most important point to remember is that if you're new to data broadcasting, you need an ally that can move you from confusion and eternal research to advancing your business plan. We know you want to stay focused on your business without being distracted by too many peripheral tasks. Contacting us is the next step you need to take to advance your business plans.
