BARCELONE, Espagne, le 25 février 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- XPAL Power, l'un des plus grands fabricants de blocs d'alimentation portables et géant technologique à l'origine des marques SpareOne, PowerSkin® et Energizer® Energi to Go®, présentera sa toute dernière gamme de produits lors du MWC 2013, au stand numéro 7G15 dans le hall 7.

PowerSkin®, fabricant de boîtiers absorbeurs de chocs et boosteurs de batterie destinés aux smartphones, présentera son boîtier-batterie bientôt disponible pour le BlackBerry Z10. Doté d'un nouveau design moderne, d'une surface extérieure unique en silicone souple, et d'une batterie rechargeable intégrée 1 500 mAh, le PowerSkin® Z10 devrait être commercialisé à la fin du mois de mars. Comme tous les boîtiers PowerSkin®, le modèle Z10 est doté à l'arrière d'une jauge lumineuse LED classique indiquant la quantité de batterie restante dans le boîtier. Il permet d'accroître le temps de parole jusqu'à 7 heures, le tout dans un boîtier fin de 20 mm, d'un poids plume de seulement 88 grammes.

PowerSkin® présentera également son très attendu PowerSkin PoP'n, qui a fait son entrée sur le marché mi-février. Le PoP'n est un chargeur de batterie 2 000 mAh à ventouses doté de petites ventouses flexibles qui adhèrent à la surface extérieure de la plupart des appareils mobiles, et se connectent via un embout interchangeable à un adaptateur Micro-USB, Apple 30 broches ou Apple Lightning. Le chargeur de batterie PoP'n est doté d'un revêtement plastique solide et brillant, de ventouses en caoutchouc souple thermo-injecté du côté intérieur, et d'un adaptateur gris à embout flexible sur la partie inférieure, capable de se plier à 90 degrés, et pouvant ainsi s'adapter à tous les boîtiers même les plus larges (en fonction de l'ouverture du boîtier), afin de recharger le téléphone. Il s'agit de l'un des premiers chargeurs externes de batteries pour iPhone 5 au monde à avoir été approuvé Apple MFI.

SpareOne présentera quant à elle le seul et unique téléphone mobile d'urgence du monde alimenté par une simple pile AA, baptisé SpareOne Plus – dans sa version améliorée lancée au Consumer Electronics Show de Las Vegas en janvier dernier. Les améliorations apportées au SpareOne Plus comprennent un service basé sur la localisation capable de déterminer l'emplacement exact de l'identifiant du téléphone, accessible à partir d'une application smartphone gratuite et d'un site Web, ainsi qu'un retour audio numérique dictant à haute voix le numéro composé et celui des appels entrants. SpareOne a été conçu pour servir d'appareil de sécurité et de communication ultime, offrant jusqu'à 15 ans de durée de vie de batterie en cas de non utilisation (téléphone éteint et languette plastique insérée) et 10 heures de temps de parole en utilisation. Comptent parmi ses fonctionnalités : une lampe torche sur le dessus fournissant 24 heures de lumière en continu, un bouton dédié à la composition du numéro 911 afin d'alerter les autorités (fonctionnant avec ou sans carte SIM), la possibilité de paramétrer 9 numéros à composition rapide, ainsi qu'un nouvel étui résistant à l'eau, réutilisable et au travers duquel il est possible de téléphoner, doté d'une fermeture résistante à l'humidité. Cet étui flottant permet une utilisation dans des conditions de température extrêmes de -22 F à 140 F (-30 degrés C à 60 degrés C), et offre une protection sous l'eau pendant 30 minutes à une profondeur d'1 mètre, tout en étant également conçu pour permettre d'y loger quelques objets de petite taille, de type cartes de crédit, pansements, etc.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
