SES BROADBAND SERVICES UND ESA FÖRDERN INNOVATIONEN BEI DER BREITBANDKOMMUNIKATION ÜBER SATELLIT

SES (Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) hat eine Vereinbarung mit der Europäischen Weltraumorganisation (ESA) unterzeichnet, um Innovationen bei der Breitbandkommunikation über Satellit zu fördern. Als Teil der Vereinbarung wird SES Broadband Services, eine hundertprozentige Tochter von SES, eine Reihe von Breitbanddiensten zu besonderen Konditionen für Unternehmen anbieten, die an den ARTES Applications Projekten unter Leitung der ESA teilnehmen.

Die von der ESA geleitete ARTES-Initiative (Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems) zielt darauf ab, die Wettbewerbsfähigkeit der europäischen Industrie zu verbessern, indem die Satellitennutzung in Bereichen wie Rundfunk, Multimedia- und mobiler Kommunikation, Datenübertragung, Such- und Rettungsdienste sowie Luftverkehr gefördert wird.

Mit dieser Initiative regt SES Broadband Services Unternehmen an, neue Satelliten-Breitbandanwendungen und -dienstleistungen zu entwickeln. Firmen, die am ARTES Applications-Programm teilnehmen (ARTES 3-4 und ARTES 20), können von Vorzugspreisen für Dienste von SES Broadband Services profitieren. Dies erstreckt sich auf die Dienste über die Ausleuchtzonen des ASTRA-3B Satelliten auf der Orbitalposition 23,5 Grad Ost über ganz Europa und dem Nahen Osten sowie die -Ausleuchtzone des ASTRA-4A auf der Orbitalposition 5 Grad Ost für Afrika südlich der Sahara.

„Wir fördern kontinuierlich Produktinnovationen, um die führende Position auf dem Markt zu erlangen und zu erhalten. Wir sind erfreut, unsere Kooperation mit der Europäischen Weltraumorganisation ESA ausweiten zu können, um Innovationen in der europäischen Satellitenindustrie voranzutreiben“, sagte Patrick Biewer, Managing Director bei SES Broadband Services. „Wir sehen diese Initiative als einen Katalysator für neue Ideen, die die Entwicklung und die Markteinführung neuer Satellitenbreitbandanwendungen in Europa, Afrika südlich der Sahara und dem Nahen Osten erleichtern.“

„ESA ist sehr froh über die gemeinsame Initiative mit SES Broadband Services zur Unterstützung der ARTES Applications Projekte. Die Sonderkonditionen, die von einem Betreiber wie SES angeboten werden, sind ein wichtiger Bestandteil der Entwicklungsphasen neuer weltraumbasierter Anwendungen und Dienstleistungen. Es wird die Entwicklung neuer Ideen anregen und helfen, Beziehungen direkt zu Beginn eines Projektes aufzubauen sowie operative Dienste am Ende eines Projektes zu starten“, sagte Amnon Ginati, Leiter der Abteilung Integrated and Telecom-related Applications bei der ESA.

Die Vereinbarung gilt bis zum 15. September 2014. Interessenten können sich bis zum 31. Dezember 2013 über [email protected] bewerben. Weitere Informationen erhalten Sie auf http://iap.esa.int/opportunities/satcom-apps/operator-opportunity-ses

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and over a decade of audio conferencing product development to start an innovati...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them?

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market. It is estimated that by 2018 the Chinese market will be reaching over $30 billion in gaming revenue alone. Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
