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.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profes...
Fortunately, meaningful and tangible business cases for IoT are plentiful in a broad array of industries and vertical markets.

All of these business cases, which will be briefly explored in this session, hinge on cost effectively extracting relevant data from ...
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
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.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades.

WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
