Noticias reglamentarias:

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), líder mundial en seguridad digital, anuncia que suministrará sus SIM UpTeq LTE y aplicaciones de software integrado a EE, la compañía de comunicaciones más avanzada del Reino Unido, para agilizar el lanzamiento de la primera red móvil 4G del Reino Unido.

EE, emprendimiento conjunto de France Telecom y Deutsche Telekom en el Reino Unido, es el primer operador de telefonía móvil del Reino Unido en lanzar una red 4G, disponible bajo la marca EE de la empresa. El servicio 4G de EE ya está activo en 18 ciudades y pueblos en todo el Reino Unido; además se incluirán otras 17 localidades para fines de marzo de 2013 y se estima que la cobertura alcanzará al 98% de la población del Reino Unido hacia fines de 2014.

En esta primera implementación de LTE a gran escala en Europa, UpTeq LTE de Gemalto cumple una función fundamental porque ayuda a EE a superar los desafíos comerciales y técnicos de las redes 4G. El paquete de software de alta gama incluido en la tarjeta SIM cumple con las últimas normas industriales y está integrado para EE tanto en formato Micro SIM Plus como en formato nano SIM (4FF).

Gracias a la tecnología 4G, los clientes pueden experimentar interacciones móviles a una “velocidad vertiginosa”, debido a la brevedad de los tiempos de respuesta (baja latencia) y a la velocidad de carga, que es hasta cinco veces superior a la de la tecnología 3G. De este modo, los clientes pueden aprovechar al máximo el potencial de sus dispositivos móviles cuando navegan por Internet y disfrutar de servicios con multiplicidad de datos de manera segura, incluyendo videos de alta definición, televisión en vivo, música y juegos para varios usuarios.

“Gemalto pudo cumplir con nuestras exigencias, que eran muy desafiantes en términos de planificación, capacidad y entrega total del programa”, comentó Simon Frumkin, vicepresidente de adquisiciones y cadena de suministro de EE. “Además, Gemalto demostró la experiencia técnica que necesitaba EE para definir sus servicios con precisión e implementar rápidamente las funciones de software de la tarjeta, así como las aplicaciones para administrar los sistemas”.

Gracias al apoyo de Gemalto, EE puede disponer de acceso inmediato a todo el conocimiento y la experiencia que hemos adquirido en las últimas implementaciones de alto perfil en Japón y EE.UU.”, agregó Philippe Vrignaud, vicepresidente ejecutivo de telecomunicaciones de Gemalto. ”EE lidera la introducción de LTE en el Reino Unido, con el respaldo de las tecnologías de software para procesar datos y administrar sistemas de UpTeq LTE de Gemalto, que permiten aprovechar con rapidez todo el potencial de las redes LTE1”.
