Satellite small 533x320 - Communications


Advancements in communications technology, particularly 5G and LEO Satcomms, are heavily intertwined with the role of computers and digital technologies such as IoT. 5G Low latency and high bandwidth capabilities further allow for the distribution and scalability of computing to the edge of the network.

In outdoor edge or mobile deployments, equipment robustness and protection are crucial for withstanding challenging thermal conditions, shock, vibration and the ingress of dust and fluids. Particularly for permanent communications or broadcasting infrastructure assets that are deployed for a very long lifecycle.

Captec’s extensive engineering capabilities and experience enable us to help protect, ruggedize and service computer-based communications equipment for deployment anywhere at the edge. We provide industrial roadmaps that extend far beyond the normal lifecycle of commercial computing equipment for long life and minimized obsolescence disruption. This ensures that your investments remain relevant, supportable and adaptable.

Captec’s specialized computer solutions include a wide range of form factors including smaller-size platforms, such as short-depth servers, to optimize space utilization without compromising performance. Our integration capabilities can combine multiple computing platforms with additional electronic payload into complex integrated racks and systems.

To enable faster edge AI, inferencing and analytics, we provide leading smart edge and IoT technology that offers enhanced processing capabilities and cloud-agnostic, edge micro data center.

With Captec, you gain access to reliable and innovative solutions tailored to meet the unique challenges and deployments of the rapidly evolving communications sector.
