Globecomm Provides Secure Connectivity for Sports-Broadcasting Clients
The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Globecomm as a mobile/integrator sponsor. Headquartered in Hauppauge, NY, Globecomm is a leading global network-connectivity provider serving media, maritime, enterprise, and government markets in more than 100 countries.
Globecomm develops secure connectivity solutions to address customer issues across a broad spectrum of areas: system design and integration, managed communication services including mobile and IoT, media services, and mission-critical networks. The company is known for its ability to provide robust connectivity to the most remote locations under the most treacherous conditions and with zero downtime.
“For us, it’s kind of a welcome back home for rejoining SVG. It’s been a few years that we’ve been away, and, frankly, it’s been a shame because we really appreciate the community that SVG represents,” says COO Bryan McGuirk. “The sports broadcasters rarely come together in that kind of collegial way to look at technology, share ideas, and make decisions for their business. For me, it was an easy decision to come back home to SVG and rejoin the community.”
The company offers broadcast-media and enterprise customers video, internet, content, and data-network services for mission-critical RF and IP video delivery, file transfer, IP streaming, network-origination services, and interactivity. It also provides expertise for building new broadcast systems, control rooms, and studios; launching TV networks on a global scale; and distributing thousands of hours of content across multiple platforms. Media Infrastructure deployments provide full contribution and distribution capabilities, from satellite downlinks and broadcasts to fiber/CDN connectivity. The company’s Managed Network Services offer efficient bandwidth utilization and secure communications through its global satellite, fiber/CDN, and cellular networks.
Globecomm also provides a broad range of enterprise/IoT, cloud, virtualization, and IPTV solutions. In addition to New York, the company also maintains offices in Maryland, New Jersey, Virginia, the Netherlands, South Africa, Germany, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Afghanistan.
“The Globecomm engineering team likes getting into those really complex problems that most companies shy away from,” notes Paul Scardino, SVP, sales engineering and marketing. “We will figure out the solution to the most complex problems that most companies really can’t afford to or want to dig into.”
According to the company, Globecomm provides smart connectivity solutions linking anyone to anything, wherever its customers’ needs dictate, no matter how remote, hazardous, or challenging. It recently transported UFC out of Europe for NeuLion.
