CORRIGIR E SUBSTITUIR: MDC Indústria lança Micro Data Centers de baixo custo instalados em contêineres, projetados para fornecer conectividade de internet para cidades de pequeno e médio porte em países em desenvolvimento.

A MDC Indústria de Contêineres Inteligentes Ltda. anunciou hoje o lançamento dos primeiros protótipos dos produtos da família P³ - Plug & Play POP, Micro Data Centers de Internet de baixo custo e economia de energia, instalados em contêineres de aço de 20, 10 e 8 pés. As unidades foram projetadas para agilizar, simplificar e reduzir os custos de implantação e manutenção de POPs (Pontos de Presença) em cidades de pequeno e médio porte e/ou comunidades remotas.

Os Plug & Play POPs são unidades que foram projetadas para organizações governamentais, operadores de telecom, provedores de internet e conglomerados especiais que desejem implantar projetos de TI e Internet em áreas rurais e/ou conectá-las através de uma intranet de uma forma rápida e confiável. Estas unidades ecologicamente corretas são construídas para suportar condições climáticas extremas, e projetadas para operar continuamente por períodos extremamente longos diante de frequentes falhas de energia e/ou oscilações elétricas.

Cada unidade fornece espaço de TI (IT Collocation) no padrão de racks de 19”. Esse ambiente de hospedagem é especialmente protegido e suportado por sub-sistemas que incluem: energia com backup, aterramento e proteção de surtos, climatização e isolamento térmico, monitoramento e controle ambiental, segurança e detecção de incêndio e inundações, dentre outros. Além disso os P³ - Plug & Play POPs podem ser entregues como uma solução de TI tipo turn-key, com todas as plataformas de conectividade e computação já instaladas como: roteadores, switches, balanceamento de cargas (load-balancing), firewalls, cache, virtualização, hospedagem com servidores, etc.

“Os Plug & Play POPs agem como ilhas de estabilidade tecnológica em um mar bravo de condições climáticas extremas e instabilidades da rede elétrica. Eles permitem uma conectividade confiável entre cidades remotas e a Nuvem”, disse Yoram Yaeli, Diretor Geral da MDC Indústria de Contêineres Inteligentes Ltda.. “Nós concluímos com sucesso o desenvolvimento de nosso MDC (Micro Data Center) de 20 pés e do PDC (Pico Data Center) de 8 pés. O desenvolvimento do NDC (Nano Data Center) de 10 pés está em andamento, e, com sua conclusão teremos completado os protótipos de produtos da família P³.”

MDCs, NDCs e PDCs são unidades autônomas que foram criadas para serem operadas e controladas remotamente pela equipe de TI do cliente. O avançado computador de controle on-board HAD2D2 é baseado em tecnologia proprietária da empresa e é parte integrante de cada unidade. O HAL2D2 comunica-se com a plataforma de controle central – iMAMS - Integrated Monitoring & Maintenance System (Sistema Integrado de Monitoramento e Manutenção). O software iMAMS é uma solução completa e escalonável para NOC - Network Operation Center (Centro de Operação de Rede), capaz de operar dezenas, centenas e até milhares de MDC’s.

A empresa MDC recebeu sua primeira ordem de produção de 23 unidades da Ozônio Telecomunicações Ltda. que planeja utilizar os MDCs para fornecer acesso ao backbone da internet para 23 cidades na região Amazônica utilizando os satélites da O3b Networks Limited. Os Plug & Play POPs irão facilitar a distribuição local para grandes consumidores, incluindo órgãos governamentais, operadoras de telefonia celular, companhias de energia elétrica, companhias de óleo e gás, universidades, portos e provedores locais. Os MDCs incorporam ainda plataformas de otimização de banda larga e serviços agregados de TI como: hospedagem de nuvem local, servidores de e-mails, firewalls e etc.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
