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."

Über SIGFOX

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.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
"My role is working with customers, helping them go through this digital transformation. I spend a lot of time talking to banks, big industries, manufacturers working through how they are integrating and transforming their IT platforms and moving them forward," explained William Morrish, General Manager Product Sales at Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
