Gulfsat Madagascar choisit O3b Networks pour fournir une connexion haut débit abordable à travers Madagascar

O3b Networks a annoncé aujourd'hui que le fournisseur de services de télécommunications de premier plan, Gulfsat Madagascar, a signé un contrat de capacité à long terme pour fournir des services de connexion et de téléphonie satellite haut débit à travers la nation insulaire de Madagascar.

S'appuyant sur les avantages concurrentiels uniques de la flotte satellite en orbite terrestre moyenne d'O3b, Gulfsat Madagascar peut offrir aux résidents et aux entreprises sur la quatrième île la plus grande au monde un nouveau niveau de solutions de connexion haut débit avec la vitesse de la fibre et la portée et la fiabilité de la technologie satellite. La connectivité fournie par O3b permet aux communautés de bénéficier de latences d'une faiblesse inégalée (moins de 150 millisecondes), d'une largeur de bande illimitée et abordable et d'économies opérationnelles sans pareil.

L'île de Madagascar, situé au large de la côte sud-est de l'Afrique, est desservie par des câbles sous-marins à fibre optique, mais Gulfsat voit des avantages considérables dans l'accessibilité économique et la résilience des solutions satellite de bande Ka d'O3b.

« En collaboration avec O3b Networks, Gulfsat est bien positionnée pour fournir une vaste gamme de services de connexion et de transmissions vocales et de données haut débit avec la vitesse et la rentabilité de la fibre et la haute disponibilité et la résilience de la technologie satellite », a déclaré Damien de Lamberterie, Directeur général de Gulfsat Madagascar. « Gulfsat tirera profit de cette combinaison gagnante à travers Madagascar, où les consommateurs et les entreprises attendent tous une solution haut débit abordable à latence faible depuis des années ».

« Gulfsat est une véritable innovatrice qui offre déjà des services à triple flux à Madagascar sous le nom de marque Blueline. O3b est fière de permettre à ce fournisseur de télécommunications de premier plan en Afrique de concrétiser son objectif consistant à réaliser le plein potentiel de la région à travers une connexion haut débit abordable », a expliqué Omar Trujillo, O3b Networks, Vice-président pour l'Afrique et l'Amérique latine. « L'alliance entre O3b et Gulfsat élimine les restrictions techniques et les coûts élevés qui frustrent les fournisseurs d'accès Internet à travers l'Afrique depuis des années. Une fois de plus, Gulfsat fait œuvre de pionnière en se concentrant sur l'offre d'une meilleure expérience Internet accessible à tous ».

Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...

All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
