SIGFOX wählt TDF für den Ausbau des französischen Netzes

TOULOUSE und MONTROUGE, Frankreich, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Der Schmalband-Netzbetreiber baut sein französisches Netz durch ein nationales Abkommen aus

SIGFOX, der erste Mobilfunknetzbetreiber, der ausschließlich auf Machine-to-Machine-Kommunikation und das "Internet der Dinge" spezialisiert ist, gab heute den Vertragsabschluss mit TDF bekannt.

Dieses vom Unternehmen SIGFOX unterzeichnete nationale Abkommen sieht den Ausbau, das Hosting und die Wartung eines Teils seines französischen Metropolitan Area Networks vor.

Das Großprojekt, zu dem der Startschuss bereits gefallen ist, demonstriert die rasche Ausweitung der SIGFOX-Netzabdeckung. Mit der großen Zahl und dem Mehrfachempfang seiner Masten trägt das Unternehmen TDF dazu bei, dass SIGFOX seinen Kunden flächendeckend stabile und zuverlässige Dienste bereitstellen kann. Die gesamte TDF-Infrastruktur ist auf die Unterbringung von Telekomgeräten und audiovisueller Ausrüstung ausgerichtet. Ziel ist eine Maximierung der Funkabdeckung von SIGFOX auf jedem Masten, um sowohl die ökonomischen als auch die ökologischen Belastungen des Netzes deutlich einzuschränken.

"TDF unterstützt das Wachstum von SIGFOX und stärkt damit seine Positionierung auf dem aufstrebenden Telekommarkt. Das Projekt stellt eine richtungsweisende Herausforderung dar, im Rahmen derer TDF seine gesamte Expertise auf den Gebieten Funktechnik sowie Ausbau, Betrieb und Wartung von Telekom-Infrastruktur in den Dienst von SIGFOX stellt. Indem sich SIGFOX für uns entschieden hat, stellt das Unternehmen die Weichen für zahlreiche Kommunikationsobjekte, die unsere Nutzergewohnheiten verändern und unser Leben erleichtern werden", erklärt Christine Landrevot, Leiter der Abteilung Telekom und Services von TDF.

Ludovic Le Moan, Geschäftsführer von SIGFOX, fügt hinzu : "Die TDF-Standorte ermöglichen es dem Unternehmen, die Netzabdeckung auszubauen und die Servicequalität zu erhöhen, die SIGFOX seinen Kunden zur Verfügung stellen möchte. Unser Mobilfunknetz für Schmalbandkommunikation soll auf Milliarden Objekte ausgerichtet sein. Durch die neue Dimension der TDF-Infrastruktur zusammen mit der wegweisenden Technologie von SIGFOX wird die Ära des ‚Internets der Dinge' eingeläutet."


SIGFOX ist der erste und einzige Betreiber eines Schmalbandnetzes, das ausschließlich auf die Einbindung von physischen Objekten in Informationssysteme ausgerichtet ist. Durch seine patentierte UNB-Technologie revolutioniert SIGFOX somit den Bereich M2M und das "Internet der Dinge", wodurch die Einbindung von Objekten im großen Stil ermöglicht wird. Das Netzwerk integriert in Frankreich und in einigen internationalen Städten bereits mehrere Zehntausend Objekte in das Internet und die Informationssysteme seiner Kunden.

SIGFOX ermöglicht dem "Internet der Dinge", was Apple im Bereich der mobilen Apps ermöglicht hat: die Schaffung und Verknüpfung von Internetobjekten in ähnlicher Weise wie der Erstellung mobiler Apps und ihrer Verbreitung. In gewisser Weise ist SIGFOX für drahtlose Kommunikationsnetze, was Twitter für die Webkommunikation ist, nämlich das Wesentliche so kostengünstig wie möglich kommunizieren zu können.

SIGFOX is the first and only operator of a cellular network fully dedicated to low-throughput communication for connected objects. Leveraging on its patented UNB technology SIGFOX brings a revolution to the M2M and Internet of Things world by enabling large-scale connection of objects. Reliable, long range, robust, SIGFOX network and related offer mean groundbreaking prices and costs, extremely low power consumption, and massive reduction of the customers' carbon footprint.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty
As organizations shift toward IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. CommVault can ensure protection &E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist - Windows Products and Microsoft Partnerships, will discuss how to cut costs, scale easily, and unleash insight with CommVault Simpana software, the only si...
The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...
PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...

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.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...
