Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. e O3b Networks Expandem Parceria Comercial para Oferecer aos Hóspedes a bordo do Navio de Cruzeiro Allure of the Seas Acesso à Internet Ultrarrápido e Viável

A O3b Networks assinou um segundo acordo histórico plurianual com a Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. para fornecer serviço de banda larga de alta velocidade por satélite a bordo de um dos maiores e mais revolucionários navios de cruzeiro do mundo, o Allure of the Seas. Mais de 8.000 hóspedes, funcionários e membros da tripulação que viajam pelo Caribe se conectarão a velocidades como as de cabos por fibra no mar.

A Royal Caribbean foi a primeira a obter o novo produto marítimo da O3b - O3bMaritime - a bordo do navio-irmã do Allure of the Seas, o Oasis of the Seas quando eles assinaram um contrato no verão passado. Agora, os hóspedes e tripulantes a bordo do Allure of the Seas poderão desfrutar das altíssimas velocidades de download e do desempenho previsto que também será quatro vezes mais sensível do que os sistemas existentes e previstos de satélite GEO. O O3b Maritime será o único sistema via satélite capaz de fornecer aos hóspedes da linha do cruzeiro e tripulantes serviços de banda larga com o mesmo nível dos padrões de telecomunicações em terra.

"Os hóspedes de navios de cruzeiro esperam serviços de Internet e voz com a mesma qualidade que têm em terra. Estamos orgulhosos por ser a primeira empresa de cruzeiros a oferecer aos hóspedes e tripulantes a bordo de nossa inovadora classe de navios Oasis serviços de conectividade inigualáveis", disse Bill Martin, Diretor de TI da Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.. "Este último acordo sublinha a nossa confiança na O3b Networks e no nível de conectividade divisor de águas que ele está definido para oferecer a bordo de nossos navios."

"Através desses acordos, a O3b Networks e a Royal Caribbean em breve oferecerão mais largura de banda do que está atualmente está disponível em todos os navios de cruzeiro juntos no Caribe, tornando a O3b a líder absoluta de mercado", disse Steve Collar, Diretor-Presidente, O3b Networks. "A parceria entre a O3b Networks e a Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. continua a se expandir, e os verdadeiros ganhadores são os hóspedes e os tripulantes a bordo dos navios mais inovadores no mar. A aliança se baseia em uma missão compartilhada construída sobre a crença de que a Internet deve estar sempre ao alcance - quer na terra, quer no mar".

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.

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
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 ...
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...
