A SES (Paris:SESG)(LuxX:SESG) e a Astrium Services anunciaram hoje a assinatura de um acordo de capacidade para fornecer conectividade em embarcações em toda a América Latina, assim como no Atlântico Norte, Mar Mediterrâneo, Mar Vermelho e Golfo de Áden.
A Astrium Services renovará a capacidade do satélite SES-4 para fornecer aos seus clientes serviços gerenciados para comunicação marítima, equipamento de rastreamento e desempenho do motor, assim como garantir que a equipe, mesmo em alto mar, se mantenha conectada. Localizado a 338 graus leste, o SES-4 é um dos vários satélites da SES fornecendo capacidade para a Astrium Services e permitindo que a empresa personalize seus serviços para suprir as necessidades específicas do setor marítimo.
“A expansão da cobertura abrangente do novo satélite SES-4, do Golfo Árabe até o Oceano Pacífico Sul, é ideal para nossos clientes nesta região. Combinada com a experiência da SES em satélites e nossa equipe dedicada de vendas e serviços, a cobertura é chave no desenvolvimento confiável dos serviços VSAT para nossos clientes globais nessas rotas marítimas estratégicas”, disse o chefe de Assuntos Marítimo da divisão de Comunicações Empresariais da Astrium Services, Tore Morten Olsen.
Sob este novo acordo, a Astrium Services poderá atender a várias necessidades específicas de comunicação, incluindo uma cobertura de VSAT confiável para atividades de óleo e gás offshore no Brasil e na costa leste da África. Adicionalmente, a grande presença do SES-4 estende sua cobertura para o Golfo de Áden, onde a conectividade é vital para clientes em zonas com risco de pirataria, como por exemplo, na costa da Somália. A cobertura também abrange clientes marítimos pesqueiros, transportadores e de recreação na Europa.
“As necessidades da comunicação global em movimento no setor marítimo devem ser constantemente atendidas até mesmo quando as embarcações e tripulações estão em regiões remotas no mundo. A série de novos contratos com a Astrium Services reforça nossa parceria de longa data e é uma prova da nossa posição líder no fornecimento de serviços de satélites de mobilidade”, disse o vice-presidente sênior do departamento Comercial da SES na Europa, Norbert Hölzle.

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
