Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. und O3b Networks erweitern ihre Geschäftspartnerschaft, um Gästen an Bord der Allure of the Seas Kreuzfahrtschiffe ultraschnellen und erschwinglichen Internetzugang zu ermöglichen

O3b Networks hat einen zweiten historischen, mehrjährigen Vertrag mit Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. unterzeichnet, um einen Hochgeschwindigkeits-Breitbandservice via Satellit an Bord eines der weltweit größten und innovativsten Kreuzfahrtschiffe – der Allure of the Seas – zur Verfügung stellen zu können. Mehr als 8000 Gäste und Crewmitglieder, die mit Caribbean reisen, können selbst auf hoher See von glasfaserähnlichen Geschwindigkeiten im Netz profitieren.

Royal Caribbean war der erste Anbieter, der den neuen O3b-Service O3bMaritime an Bord des Schwesterschiffs Oasis of the Seas der Allure of the Seas bereitstellen konnte, als die beiden Unternehmen im letzten Sommer den Vertrag unterzeichneten. Nun können die Gäste und Crewmitglieder an Bord der Allure of the Seas von den ultrahohen Download-Geschwindigkeiten und überragenden Leistungswerten profitieren, die gegenwärtige und geplante GEO-Satellitensysteme voraussichtlich um das Vierfache übertreffen werden. O3bMaritime wird das einzige Satellitensystem sein, das in der Lage ist, den Gästen und Crewmitgliedern von Kreuzfahrtschiffen Breitband-Serviceleistungen zur Verfügung zu stellen, die mit den Telekommunikationsstandards an Land tatsächlich Schritt halten können.

„Die Gäste von Kreuzfahrtschiffen erwarten dieselbe Sprach- und Internet-Qualität wie bei Festnetzverbindungen. Es erfüllt uns mit Stolz, nun feststellen zu können, dass wir die erste Kreuzfahrtgesellschaft sind, die den Gästen und Crewmitgliedern an Bord unserer innovativen Schiffe der Oasis-Klasse Telekommunikationsdienste anbieten können, die denjenigen anderer Anbieter weit voraus sind”, so Bill Martin, Chief Information Officer der Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. „Dieser jüngste Vertrag unterstreicht unser Vertrauen in O3b Networks und das Konnektivitätsniveau an Bord unserer Schiffe, das die Regeln des Wettbewerbs nachhaltig verändern wird.”

„Mithilfe dieser Verträge werden O3b Networks und Royal Caribbean künftig in der Lage sein, auf allen Kreuzfahrtschiffen des Unternehmens mehr Bandbreite zur Verfügung zu stellen. Somit wird O3b zum absoluten Marktführer", so Steve Collar, CEO bei O3b Networks. „Die Partnerschaft zwischen O3b Networks und Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. wird noch weiter ausgebaut und die eigentlichen Gewinner werden die Gäste und Crewmitglieder an Bord der innovativsten Schiffe sein. Die Allianz verfolgt eine Mission, basierend auf unserer Überzeugung, dass das Internet immer erreichbar sein sollte – sowohl an Land als auch auf hoher See.”

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner is Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., will discuss the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conduct a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
