Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. y O3b Networks expanden su alianza comercial para proporcionar a los pasajeros del Crucero Allure of the Seas comunicaciones de Internet ultrarápidas y accesibles

O3b Networks firmó un histórico segundo acuerdo por varios años con Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. para proveer un servicio de banda ancha satelital de alta velocidad al crucero más grande e innovador del mundo, el Allure of the Seas. Más de 8.000 personas incluyendo pasajeros, miembros del personal y tripulación recorriendo el Caribe podrán conectarse utilizando velocidades similares a las de la fibra óptica en el medio del mar.

Por medio de un acuerdo firmado el verano pasado, Royal Caribbean fue el primero en utilizar el nuevo ofrecimiento marítimo de O3b, denominado O3bMaritime, en el Oasis of the Seas, buque gemelo del Allure of the Seas. En la actualidad los pasajeros y tripulación a bordo del Allure of the Seas podrán realizar descargas y ejecutar programas a velocidades increíbles que se espera sean cuatro veces más confiables que los sistemas satelitales GEO existentes y programados. O3bMaritime será el único sistema satelital que permitirá a los pasajeros y la tripulación del crucero el uso de servicios de banda ancha a la altura de las normas de telecomunicación terrestre.

“Los pasajeros del crucero esperan obtener la misma calidad en servicios de voz e Internet que disfrutan cuando están en tierra firme. Estamos orgullosos de ser la primera compañía de cruceros en ofrecer, tanto a los pasajeros como a la tripulación a bordo de los buques clase Oasis, nuestros innovadores servicios de conectividad sin punto de comparación”, afirmó Bill Martin, director de informática para Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. “Este último acuerdo intensifica nuestra confianza en O3b Networks y el innovador nivel de conectividad proporcionado a bordo de nuestros buques.”

“Gracias a estos acuerdos, O3b Networks y Royal Caribbean pronto podrán proporcionar un ancho de banda mayor al actualmente disponible en todos los buques en el Caribe, convirtiendo a O3b en el líder indiscutido del mercado,” expresó Steve Collar, director ejecutivo de O3b Networks. “La alianza entre O3b Networks y Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. continua creciendo, y los verdaderos ganadores son los pasajeros y tripulación de los buques más innovadores que recorren el océano. Esta alianza se basa en una misión compartida construida sobre la idea de que Internet siempre debe estar a nuestro alcance – en la tierra y en el mar.”

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
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.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades. So what has changed? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Prasanna Sivaramakrishnan, Solutions Architect at Red Hat, discussed the impact commodity hardware, ubiquitous connectivity, and innovations in open source software are having on the connected universe of people, thi...
WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
