Gemalto, Yokosuka Telecom Research Park, Fujitsu Ten y Ertico lanzan el primer centro de prueba de llamadas de emergencia (eCall) en Japón

Gemalto (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO), líder mundial en seguridad digital, hoy anunció su colaboración con Yokosuka Telecom Research Park, Inc. (YRP), FUJITSU TEN, desarrollador líder de sistemas de seguridad avanzados, y ERTICO a fin de lanzar el primer centro de prueba de llamadas de emergencia (eCall) de Japón para ayudar a los fabricantes de automóviles mundiales a que cumplan con las nuevas normas de respuesta ante emergencias de la Unión Europea (UE). Gemalto proveerá sus mejores tecnologías de módulos automotrices de máquina a máquina (M2M) Cinterion® y de Módulos de Identificación de Máquinas (MIMs) para permitir las comunicaciones y el posicionamiento por GPS para todos los escenarios de prueba. Es el primer centro de llamadas de emergencia fuera de Europa, lo que permite que los fabricantes de automóviles japoneses prueben las soluciones destinadas para la Unión Europea a nivel local.

Diseñado para reducir el tiempo de respuesta ante emergencias, el servicio de llamadas de emergencia “112” consiste en un sistema de máquina a máquina interoperable paneuropeo que permite que los vehículos (y pasajeros) llamen para pedir ayuda de manera automática en caso de que hubiese un incidente vial. El banco de pruebas de FUJITSU TEN y YRP se presenta en las unidades del Sistema a Bordo del Vehículo (IVS) que aprovechan la tecnología de Gemalto que cumple con las llamadas de emergencia con éxito probado en Europa y que cumple con los casos de prueba europeos. Cuando se activan las bolsas de aire u otros sensores dentro del vehículo, un Módulo de Identificación de Máquinas para el sector automovilístico establece instantáneamente una conexión de red segura y un módulo de máquina a máquina del sector automovilístico Cinterion inicia una llamada de voz “112” estandarizada con el centro de llamadas de emergencia más cercano. El sistema envía información clave sobre la situación de manera automática, incluidos el lugar exacto del incidente, la hora, el Número de Identificación del Vehículo y otros datos a los operadores de emergencia que envían los servicios pertinentes en tiempo real. Los pasajeros pueden activar la solución en forma manual cuando fuere necesario. Los ensayos se ven muy facilitados por este centro de pruebas, la única y exclusiva red celular 2G de llamadas de emergencia de Japón, que simula las redes inalámbricas europeas.

“Gemalto, un socio de ERTICO, ha sido decisivo a la hora de brindar soporte al centro de prueba YRP y al permitir la implementación previa de las soluciones de llamada de emergencia '112' de la Unión Europea en toda Europa”, señaló Hermann Meyer, director ejecutivo de ERTICO - ITS Europa. “La experiencia y la tecnología avanzada de Gemalto ayudan a que toda la cadena de suministro automotriz cumpla con el requisito de equipar a todos los automóviles de pasajeros nuevos de la UE y abastecer a todos los vehículos comerciales con la capacidad de llamadas de emergencia hacia 2015”.

“Al permitir la prueba local de la tecnología de llamadas de emergencia, Gemalto y sus socios simplifican la fabricación y ayudan a que los fabricantes de automóviles mundiales logren ahorrar tiempo y costos”, manifestó Marcel Visser, vicepresidente del sector automotriz de Gemalto. “Los módulos de vanguardia y los Módulos de Identificación de Máquinas de Gemalto cuentan con la certificación ISO/TS 16949 para ayudar a los fabricantes de automóviles a cumplir con los estrictos requisitos industriales de calidad y rastreabilidad durante toda la vida útil del vehículo. Estamos orgullosos de nuestro aporte a la seguridad vial y a la vida cotidiana de las personas que utilizan la seguridad digital”.

Cinterion® es una marca registrada de Gemalto GmbH en varios países

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
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...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
