Gemalto suministra su tarjeta SIM UpTeq NFC a MTS Russia para servicios móviles de transporte

Gemalto (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO), el líder mundial en seguridad digital, está suministrando a Mobile TeleSystems (MTS, por sus siglas en inglés), el operador de redes más grande de Rusia con más de 70 millones de suscriptores, sus tarjetas SIM de alta gama UpTeq NFC para una solución de boletos para el transporte público basada en telefonía móvil en la ciudad de Novosibirsk. Producida y personalizada en el centro de servicios de Gemalto de Moscú, la solución puede ofrecer una mayor eficiencia y capacidad de respuesta para el rápido despliegue del programa NFC de MTS. Solo Gemalto proporciona a sus clientes rusos una amplia experiencia y presencia local en los sectores de telecomunicaciones, operaciones bancarias y transporte.

Operado junto con Zolotaya Korona, un sistema ruso de pago y transferencia de dinero, el servicio de emisión de billetes les permite a los usuarios pagar sus viajes en buses y en el metro, en Novosibirsk, la tercera ciudad más grande del condado, simplemente tocando su teléfono móvil en un lector NFC. Para que la calidad sea óptima, el servicio será facturado a los usuarios por medio de sus esquemas de facturación habitual de MTS. Más del 95 % de los molinetes y de las terminales de transporte público en Novosibirsk ya están equipados con lectores NFC, y el nuevo sistema está diseñado para reemplazar los actuales boletos de papel. Las filas de clientes se acortarán, y mejorará el servicio ofrecido por la red de transporte público en toda la ciudad.

A medida que la tecnología NFC traspasa el reino del pago sin contacto, el transporte está emergiendo como una de las aplicaciones más importantes, y nuestro Upteq NFC SIM es la plataforma ideal para implementar una amplia gama de servicios en el futuro — manifestó Thierry Mesnard, vicepresidente ejecutivo de Gemalto—. Los despliegues de alto perfil, como el proyecto MTS en Novosibirsk, tendrán un impacto significativo y lograrán que los usuarios finales se acostumbren a tocar su teléfono móvil para disfrutar de los servicios NFC".

“¿Será el 2013 el año de NFC? Mi respuesta es sí. Hemos llegado a un punto sin retorno, en donde el NFC será incluido en los productos, aplicaciones y servicios de las empresas. La base instalada aumentará a más de 500 millones de dispositivos. Eso nos proporciona una creciente variedad de cosas que se podrán conseguir con solo tocar nuestros teléfonos”, añadió John Devlin, analista principal para ABI Research.

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
SYS-CON Media announced that Splunk, a provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, has launched an ad campaign on Big Data Journal. Splunk software and cloud services enable organizations to search, monitor, analyze and visualize machine-generated big data coming from websites, applications, servers, networks, sensors and mobile devices. The ads focus on delivering ROI - how improved uptime delivered $6M in annual ROI, improving customer operations by mining large volumes of unstructured data, and how data tracking delivers uptime when it matters most.
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

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.
