Since its incorporation, Airbus DS Communications has been a leading provider of emergency mass
notification solutions. Leveraging the parent company’s wide geographic reach, Airbus DS Communications
has been successful in expanding its customer base in all parts of the globe. With solutions in more than
two-thirds of the most populous US cities and hundreds of Federal installations, including the Department
of Defense, the company has gained significant experience in deploying and servicing large, complex
systems. The company has a very good industry coverage, and offers solutions tailored to meet the needs
of organizations of various sizes and across industries, such as energy and utilities, corporations,
government, healthcare, and defense. The company scores well in its partner channels which include a
plethora of technology vendors, third-party resellers, and distributors. Considering the strong financial state
of the parent company, Airbus DS Communications is also expected to grow decently in terms of its annual
revenue over the next few years.
Airbus DS Communications has adopted various strategies to expand its presence in the MNS market.
Deploying inorganic growth strategies, such as partnerships, has been the major contributor toward its
consistent growth. Recently, Airbus DS Communications has partnered with CenturyLink to implement Next
Generation 9-1-1 managed service solution in the Marana Police Department, Arizona. It also partnered
with Venture Technologies to enhance the emergency communications of Charlotte County, Florida, by
upgrading to the next-generation VESTA 9-1-1 call handling solution. The company has also adopted
organic growth initiatives and launched products, such as VESTA Map Local solution powered by GeoComm
which provides the call takers their desired location details. Airbus DS Communications also upgraded its
VESTA 9-1-1 call handling solution, by releasing version 7.0 which provides robust enhancements to its
Automatic Call Distribution (ACD) features and controls. However, Airbus DS Communications can still
improve on its organic growth approach, and it should undertake inorganic growth measures, such as
acquisitions, to further strengthen its presence in the MNS market.
