SES UND ASTRIUM SERVICES ERWEITERN VSAT-ABDECKUNG UND -DIENST FÜR GLOBALE MARITIME KUNDEN

SES (Paris:SESG)(LuxX:SESG) und Astrium Services haben heute bekannt gegeben, dass sie eine Kapazitätsvereinbarung zur Bereitstellung von Konnektivität für Schiffe an der Küste Lateinamerikas sowie in der Nordsee, dem Mittelmeer, dem Roten Meer und dem Golf von Aden unterzeichnet haben.

Astrium Services wird die Kapazitäten auf dem SES-4 Satelliten verlängern, um seinen Kunden sogenannte Managed Services in der maritimen Geschäftskommunikation und zur Überwachung von Material und Motorleistung zu bieten sowie die Kommunikation für Schiffsbesatzungen auf See sicherzustellen. SES-4 ist auf 338 Grad West positioniert und ist einer von mehreren SES-Satelliten, die Kapazitäten für Astrium Services bereitstellen und es dem Unternehmen ermöglichen, maßgeschneiderte Dienste für die spezifischen Bedürfnisse der Schifffahrtindustrie anzubieten.

„Die umfassende Abdeckung des neuen SES-4 Satelliten vom Arabischen Meer bis zum Südpazifik ist ideal für unsere Kunden in dieser Region. Zusammen mit der Satelliten-Expertise von SES und unserem engagierten Verkaufs- und Service-Team ist diese Abdeckung ein Schlüsselelement für die Entwicklung eines zuverlässigen VSAT-Dienstes für unsere globalen Kunden auf diesen strategischen Seeverkehrsrouten“, sagte Tore Morten Olsen, Head of Maritime innerhalb der Business Communication-Abteilung bei Astrium Services.

Mit dem neuem Abkommen kann Astrium Services mehrere spezifische Kommunikationsbedürfnisse abdecken, einschließlich zuverlässiger VSAT-Abdeckung für Öl- und Gasaktivitäten vor der Küste Brasiliens und Ostafrikas. Zudem erweitert die größere Ausleuchtzone von SES-4 die Abdeckung über dem Golf von Aden, um lebenswichtige Konnektivität für Kunden in Gebieten mit einem hohen Risiko von Piraterie zu sichern, wie zum Beispiel vor der Küste Somalias. Die Abdeckung unterstützt auch Kunden in Europa im Bereich Fischerei, Seetransport und Freizeitschifffahrt.

„Die Schifffahrtindustrie muss weltweit flächendeckend und nahtlos kommunizieren können, auch wenn sich Schiffe und Besatzungen in abgelegenen Regionen der Welt befinden. Die Reihe neuer Aufträge mit Astrium Services untermauert unsere langfristige Partnerschaft und ist Ausdruck unserer führenden Position in der Bereitstellung mobiler Satellitendienste“, sagte Norbert Hölzle, Senior Vice President of Europe, Commercial bei SES.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
