Gemalto facilita el lanzamiento de la primera red móvil 4G del Reino Unido

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”.

1 USIM para acceso a red estándar, ISIM para acceso a redes IMS y RoHTTP para facilitar la implementación de la aplicación dentro de la norma de Plataforma Global.

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
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...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
