Suite au succès des smartphones de sa propre marque Série T, Turkcell a dévoilé son smartphone local Gebze, qui sera développé par les 700 employés du centre de R&D Turkcell Technology de Turkcell.  Le Gebze est destiné à l'exportation, tout d'abord vers les pays de la région, contribuant ainsi à combler le déficit de la balance courante à hauteur d'environ 500 000 TRY par million d'unités vendues.  Le smartphone, doté des dernières fonctionnalités telles que l'interface unique de Turkcell, de matériel développé à partir des technologies de pointe et conçu pour répondre aux besoins des clients turcs, et d'un contenu d'applications riche, sera offert à des prix abordables pour tous.  Le smartphone local de Turkcell devrait parvenir aux utilisateurs finaux en 2013.

En plus d'annoncer le franchissement d'une étape importante pour le secteur des télécommunications turc lors d'une conférence de presse à l'occasion du Mobile World Congress (« MWC » - Congrès mondial du mobile) 2013 à Barcelone, en Espagne, en présence du Ministre des transports, des affaires maritimes et des communications de Turquie, Binali Yildirim, du VP principal et Président de Qualcomm pour la région Europe, Enrico Salvatori, et du PDG de Turkcell, Sureyya Ciliv, Turkcell a également signé un accord avec Qualcomm, l'une des principales sociétés de technologie mobile au monde.  Grâce à cette collaboration, Turkcell pourra participer à des activités conjointes de R&D avec Qualcomm.

Au cours de la conférence de presse, le Ministre des transports, des affaires maritimes et des communications, Binali Yildirim, a déclaré : « La R&D a toujours été un enjeu important pour les pays.  Nous avons complété nos études sur la réglementation des activités de R&D en ce qui concerne le secteur de l'information et de la communication en 2012.  Au cours de ces études, nous avons cherché à concevoir un produit local et à créer une marque.  Avec cet objectif à l'esprit, nous avons soutenu gratuitement des projets logiciels et matériels dans le secteur.  En effet, nos études en R&D et la contribution locale à la production ont commencé à produire des résultats.  L'un d'eux est Turkcell.  Et aujourd'hui, nous nous sommes encore rapprochés de notre objectif.  Je félicite Turkcell pour cela et remercie toutes les personnes qui ont consacré leurs efforts et contribué à la phase de développement de ce projet. »

Le PDG de Turkcell, Sureyya Ciliv, a expliqué : « Nos smartphones de la Série T, que nous avons lancés dans le but de fournir des opportunités égales d'accès à l'information, ont rencontré un grand succès, avec la vente de plus de 750 000 unités.  Nous avons par ailleurs récemment lancé notre première « Tablette Turkcell » .  Nous sommes à la fois honorés et ravis d'annoncer ce développement, qui représente une avancée importante pour notre secteur et pour Turkcell, au cours d'un évènement majeur du secteur des communications mobiles, à savoir le MWC.  Avec notre smartphone Gebze, nous visons à diriger et encourager les autres acteurs du secteur à fabriquer en Turquie, et ainsi à contribuer favorablement à combler le déficit de la balance courante.  En effet, il est possible d'assurer que 500 millions TRY resteront en Turquie par million de smartphones vendus.  Nous remercions notre Ministre, M. Binali Yıldırım, et le géant mondial Qualcomm pour leur soutien et leur coopération durant cette aventure passionnante. »

Le VP principal et Président de Qualcomm dans la région Europe, Enrico Salvatori, a souligné le fait que ce partenariat entre deux chefs de file de l'industrie a marqué une avancée majeure non seulement pour la Turquie, mais aussi pour les autres pays de la région. Il a poursuivi : « Dans le cadre de cette collaboration, Turkcell sera en mesure d'utiliser les caractéristiques avancées du chipset Qualcomm et de développer des applications uniques pour les utilisateurs turcs.  Lorsque nous examinons les efforts déployés par Turkcell en matière d'innovation et de technologie, nous constatons clairement que ces qualités sont les principaux facteurs du succès de sa marque. »

The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The multi-trillion economic opportunity around the "Internet of Things" (IoT) is emerging as the hottest topic for investors in 2015. As we connect the physical world with information technology, data from actions, processes and the environment can increase sales, improve efficiencies, automate daily activities and minimize risk. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ed Maguire, Senior Analyst at CLSA Americas, will describe what is new and different about IoT, explore financial, technological and real-world impact across consumer and business use cases. Why now? Significant corporate and venture...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile devices as well as laptops and desktops using a visual drag-and-drop application – and eForms-buildi...
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 comprehe...
There will be 150 billion connected devices by 2020. New digital businesses have already disrupted value chains across every industry. APIs are at the center of the digital business. You need to understand what assets you have that can be exposed digitally, what their digital value chain is, and how to create an effective business model around that value chain to compete in this economy. No enterprise can be complacent and not engage in the digital economy. Learn how to be the disruptor and not the disruptee.

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The world is at a tipping point where the technology, the device and global adoption are converging to such a point that we will see an explosion of a world where smartphone devices not only allow us to talk to each other, but allow for communication between everything – serving as a central hub from which we control our world – MediaTek is at the heart of both driving this and allowing the markets to drive this reality forward themselves. The next wave of consumer gadgets is here – smart, connected, and small. If your ambitions are big, so are ours. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jack Hu, D...
17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
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.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
