ASTRIUM SERVICES ET SES ÉTENDENT LEUR COUVERTURE ET SERVICES VSAT AU PROFIT DE LEURS CLIENTS MARITIMES DANS LE MONDE ENTIER

SES (Paris:SESG)(LuxX:SESG) et Astrium Services ont annoncé ce jour la signature de nouveaux accords capacitaires destinés à étendre les services de connectivité au profit des navires évoluant au large de l’Amérique latine, ainsi qu’en mer du Nord, mer Méditerranée, mer Rouge et dans le golfe d’Aden.

Astrium Services renouvellera sa capacité sur le satellite SES-4 afin de proposer à ses clients des services administrés pour les communications maritimes commerciales, les équipements de pistage et les performances des machines, ainsi que la connexion continue des équipages en mer. Depuis sa position orbitale de 338° Ouest, SES-4 fait partie des satellites SES offrant à Astrium Services la capacité nécessaire pour proposer des services sur mesure, en parfaite adéquation avec les besoins spécifiques de l’industrie maritime.

« La couverture complète du nouveau satellite SES-4, qui s’étend de la mer d’Arabie à l’océan Pacifique Sud, est idéale pour nos clients dans cette région. Combinée à l’expertise satellitaire de SES et à notre équipe de ventes et services dédiée, cette couverture est essentielle pour le développement de services VSAT au profit de nos clients du monde entier qui naviguent dans ces couloirs maritimes stratégiques », a déclaré Tore Morten Olsen, Responsable des activités maritimes de la division Business Communication d’Astrium Services.

En vertu de ce nouvel accord, Astrium est en mesure de répondre à de nombreux besoins de communications spécifiques, notamment une couverture VSAT fiable pour les activités pétrolières et gazières menées au large du Brésil et de l’Afrique de l’Est. En outre, l’empreinte plus vaste de SES-4 étend sa couverture au-dessus du golfe d’Aden, offrant une connectivité indispensable aux clients circulant dans des zones à risques, marquées par des actes de piraterie, par exemple, au large de la Somalie. Cette couverture profite également aux navires de pêche, de transport et de plaisance en Europe.

« Il convient de satisfaire en permanence l’évolution des besoins de communications globales de l’industrie maritime, y compris lorsque les navires et équipages se trouvent dans des régions reculées. Cette série de nouveaux contrats avec Astrium Services vient renforcer le partenariat qui nous lie depuis longtemps et témoigne de notre position dominante en matière de prestation de services satellitaires mobiles », a déclaré pour sa part Norbert Hölzle, Senior Vice President commercial de SES pour la région Europe.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip?
