- Franchissement d'une nouvelle étape en matière de connectivité air-sol et pour les installations de divertissement embarquées

ITASCA, Illinois, 24 janvier 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo, un leader mondial en matière de connectivité embarquée et un pionnier dans le domaine des solutions de divertissement numérique sans fil embarquées, a annoncé aujourd'hui, qu'à ce jour, la société a été sélectionnée, par plusieurs compagnies aériennes majeures opérant aux États-Unis et à l'échelle internationale, pour installer dans plus de 400 appareils ses services de connectivité par satellite en bande Ku.


En plus de franchir ce cap historique pour ses services de connectivité par satellite, Gogo a également passé d'autres étapes majeures en ce qui concerne ses diverses solutions de connectivité. Aujourd'hui, la solution air-sol (ATG) de Gogo est installée dans plus de 1 700 appareils et sa prochaine génération de cette technologie – ATG-4 – est installée dans plus de 100 appareils, ce qui amène le nombre total d'appareils équipés à plus de 1800, ventilé entre neuf compagnies aériennes majeures.

« Gogo continue de jouer un rôle majeur pour aider les passagers à se connecter à 30 000 pieds d'altitude, aux États-Unis et bientôt dans le monde entier », explique Michael Small, PDG de Gogo. « En plus du lancement de notre Internet embarqué, nous avons continué de déployer notre solution de divertissement embarqué sans fil, Gogo Vision. »

Gogo Vision permet aux passagers de regarder un film sur leur propre tablette ou ordinateur portable compatible avec Wi-Fi. À l'heure actuelle, le service est installé dans plus de 300 appareils d'American, Delta et US Airways. Gogo anticipe que plus de 1 500 appareils seront équipés avec Gogo Vision d'ici à la fin 2013.

« Gogo reste technologiquement neutre et prévoit d'ajouter d'autres technologies à son portefeuille au fur et à mesure qu'elles deviennent disponibles dans le marché aéronautique, y compris Global Express, la solution de satellite Ka d'Inmarsat », ajoute M. Small. « Ajouter les technologies de satellite à notre gamme de solutions de connectivité embarquée nous permet de déployer diverses technologies et de répondre aux besoins de toute la flotte de nos compagnies aériennes partenaires, indépendamment de la taille de l'appareil ou de son rayon d'action. »

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
This week, the team assembled in NYC for @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015. For the past four years, this has been a must-attend event for MetraTech. We were happy to once again join industry visionaries, colleagues, customers and even competitors to share and explore the ways in which the Internet of Things (IoT) will impact our industry. Over the course of the show, we discussed the types of challenges we will collectively need to solve to capitalize on the opportunity IoT presents.
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
WebRTC converts the entire network into a ubiquitous communications cloud thereby connecting anytime, anywhere through any point. In his session at WebRTC Summit,, Mark Castleman, EIR at Bell Labs and Head of Future X Labs, will discuss how the transformational nature of communications is achieved through the democratizing force of WebRTC. WebRTC is doing for voice what HTML did for web content.
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

He’ll share tips on how to speed up business initiatives, harness Big Data and remain one step ahead by apply...
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
