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 ».

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...
WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web communications world.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
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 smar...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
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 ...
