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.“

Gulfsat gilt als ein Branchenführer in der Einrichtung und dem Betrieb kabelloser Netze mit modernsten Technologien für eine breite Palette von Verbindungsangeboten, einschließlich VSAT-Telefonie und Wimax.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
