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.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo.

How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
