American Tourists Vacationing in Peru Have Communicated with Family Members with Support from MINCETUR

SAN ISIDRO, Peru, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department for Tourism Security within the Ministry of Exterior Commerce and Tourism for Peru (MINCETUR) announced that American tourists Garrett Hand and Jamie Neal have spoken with their respective families today. Garrett Hand accepted MINCETUR's offer of assistance to arrange a telephone call so that he could put his mother's concerns to rest.

The tourists arrived in the city of Loreto in a Peruvian Amazon town called Angoteros, on February 26, 2013. The couple is safe and healthy after a 44-day trip through Peru. During this visit they toured Tacna, Puno, Cusco, Lima and various cities in the Peruvian Amazon.

The tourists were surprised to learn that their family, friends and the international community were concerned for their wellbeing, when they had not been heard from since the end of January.

As a result of traveling by bus, bicycle and boat in zones outside the regular tourist circuit, their access to communication by phone and internet was restricted. They have indicated that they have had an extraordinary experience during their visit to Peru.

They will next travel to Ecuador to continue their trip in South America.

MINCETUR, in coordination with the corresponding authorities, monitored the situation continually to ensure adequate support to the tourists' families who were making inquiries.

Peru welcomed 447,218 visitors from the U.S. in 2012. American visitors interested in exploring the country can rely on experienced tour operators who craft itineraries that feature activities from adventure, to culture, to cuisine.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
