Gulfsat Madagascar wählt O3b Networks zur Bereitstellung von erschwinglichen Hochgeschwindigkeits-Breitbanddiensten in ganz Madagaskar

O3b Networks meldete heute, dass der führende Telekommunikationsanbieter Gulfsat Madagascar einen langfristigen Kapazitätsvertrag unterzeichnet hat, um satellitengestützte Hochgeschwindigkeits-Breitband- und Telefoniedienste in allen Teilen der Inselnation Madagaskar bereitzustellen.

Indem Gulfsat Madagascar die einzigartigen Wettbewerbsvorteile der MEO-Satellitenflotte (Medium Erath Orbit, mittlere Erdumlaufbahn) von O3b nutzt, kann das Unternehmen den Einwohnern und Firmen der viertgrößten Insel der Welt ein neues Niveau von Breitbandlösungen zur Verfügung stellen, welche die Übertragungsgeschwindigkeit von Glasfasernetzen mit der Reichweite und Zuverlässigkeit von Satelliten vereinigen. Die von O3b gelieferte Konnektivität bietet den Nutzergemeinden neue Handlungsspielräume mit beispiellos niedrigen Latenzzeiten (unter 150 Millisekunden), unbegrenzter, erschwinglicher Bandbreite und konkurrenzlos niedrigen Betriebskosten.

Die vor der Südostküste Afrikas gelegene Insel Madagaskar wird von Untersee-Glasfaserkabeln versorgt, aber Gulfsat sieht bedeutende Vorteile in der Erschwinglichkeit und Robustheit, welche die Ka-Band-Satellitenlösungen von O3b auszeichnen.

„Zusammen mit O3b Networks ist Gulfsat gut positioniert, eine breite Palette von Breitband-, Telefonie- und Datenübertragungsdiensten mit der Geschwindigkeit und Kostenwirksamkeit von Glasfasernetzen sowie der hohen Verfügbarkeit und Widerstandsfähigkeit von Satelliten bereitzustellen“, sagte Damien de Lamberterie, General Manager, Gulfsat Madagascar. „Gulfsat wird dieses Erfolgsrezept in ganz Madagaskar nutzen, wo die Verbraucher wie auch die Unternehmen seit Jahren auf eine erschwingliche Hochgeschwindigkeitslösung mit niedriger Latenz gewartet haben.“

„Gulfsat ist ein echtes Innovationsunternehmen, das bereits unter der Marke Blueline Triple-Play-Services in Madagaskar anbietet. O3b ist stolz, diesen führenden afrikanischen Telekommunikationsbetreiber in die Lage zu versetzen, seine Vision zu realisieren und das komplette Potenzial der Region mittels erschwinglicher Hochgeschwindigkeits-Breitbandangebote freizusetzen“, erklärte Omar Trujillo, O3b Networks, VP Africa & Latam. „Die Allianz zwischen O3b und Gulfsat eliminiert die technischen Einschränkungen und die hohen Kosten, welche Internetzugangsanbieter in ganz Afrika seit Jahren frustrieren. Gulfsat beschreitet wieder einmal neue Wege in seinem Bestreben, eine bessere Interneterfahrung fü alle zu schaffen.“

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

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, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
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...
