SANTA CLARA, Calif. — July 22, 2021 — Based on its recent analysis of the United States (U.S.) next generation 911 (NG911) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Comtech Telecommunications Corp. with the U.S. Growth Leadership Award in NG911. Comtech registered the most significant year-over-year (YoY) market share increase among all NG911 primary contract holders, growing its market share from an estimated 17.3% in 2019 to 26.2% in 2020. By closing statewide contracts in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina, Comtech’s direct NG911 contracts now represent a population of over 55 million.
In addition to its recently closed NG911 contracts, Comtech acquired the state and local government NG911 business unit from General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) in 2019 and won a contract to become the primary NG911 service provider for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In that same year, Comtech strengthened its ‘one stop shop’ NG911 capabilities with the acquisition of Solacom Technologies, Inc., a pioneer in next-generation call-handling solutions and regional NG911 systems.
“While many providers license their technology to large integrators to manage the ESInet/Next Generation Core Services (NGCS), Comtech’s comprehensive NG911 in-house capabilities allow it to serve as both the end-to-end integrator as well as the primary service provider for NG911 deployments. This eases the burden for customers, as Comtech takes ownership of the entire deployment process as well as ongoing systems management,” said Brent Iadarola, Vice President, Frost & Sullivan. “Comtech is uniquely equipped to offer NG911 solutions either directly or through channel partners and provides customers with flexible deployment models, whether fully managed services or hybrid options.”
Besides its ESInet services, which include the managed IP network that supports its NG911 solution and the NGCS technology that obtains, manages, and routes IP-based data, Comtech offers a range of additional capabilities. For instance, its purpose-built Solacom solution provides i3-compliant PSAP call handling user interfaces, ESInet connectivity, and enhanced functional elements for voice and data. Its geographic information systems (GIS) provide PSAPs with real-time location data that can be synchronized across local, state, and regional levels to optimize PSAP operations and enhance emergency response times.
“Comtech’s stability, proven deployments, and compliance with industry standards have earned it significant traction in new customer acquisitions,” noted Iadarola. “Its proven ability to offer end-to-end managed services and its exceptional ownership experience have further solidified its reputation in the market and positioned it for continued success.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan bestows this award upon the company that demonstrates excellence in growth performance and customer value. It recognizes the organization’s vision for growth and associated implementation strategy, as well as the overall customer, purchase, ownership, and service experience, which has resulted in the recipient company recognizing above-market growth and greater share of wallet. The award lauds the growth, diversification, and sustainability strategies of the company.
