Gemalto aciona o lançamento da primeira rede móvel 4G do Reino Unido

A Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), a líder mundial em segurança digital, anunciou que está fornecendo o seu SIM UpTeq LTE e aplicativos de software integrados para a EE, a mais avançada empresa de comunicação do Reino Unido, suportando o lançamento da primeira rede móvel 4G do Reino Unido.

A EE, uma joint venture entre a France Telecom e a Deutsche Telekom no Reino Unido, é a primeira operadora móvel no Reino Unido a lançar a rede 4G, que está disponível na marca EE da empresa. O serviço 4G da EE já se encontra disponível em 18 cidades e municípios em todo o Reino Unido, com um planejamento de atingir mais 17 até o final de março de 2013. Além disso, está programado que 98% da população do Reino Unido terá cobertura até o final de 2014.

Nesta primeira implantação de LTE em grande escala na Europa, o UpTeq LTE da Gemalto desempenha um papel fundamental para ajudar a EE a enfrentar os desafios comerciais e técnicos da rede 4G. O sofisticado pacote de software incluído no cartão SIM é compatível com os padrões mais recentes da indústria e possui formatos incorporados em Micro SIM Plus e nano SIM (4FF) para a EE.

A tecnologia 4G permite aos consumidores experimentar interações móveis a "velocidades estonteantes", graças aos curtos tempos de resposta (baixa latência), e velocidade de carregamento até cinco vezes mais rápida do que a rede 3G. Os clientes podem experimentar, assim, todo o potencial de seus dispositivos móveis ao navegar na internet e desfrutar, com segurança, de serviços ricos em dados, tais como vídeo em alta definição, TV ao vivo, música e jogos com diversos usuários.

"A Gemalto conseguiu atender às nossas necessidades muito desafiadoras em termos de planejamento, capacidade e fornecimento geral do programa", comentou o vice-presidente de Compras e da Cadeia de Suprimentos da EE, Simon Frumkin. "A Gemalto demonstrou ainda o conhecimento técnico necessário para ajudar a EE a definir seus serviços com precisão e implementar rapidamente as funcionalidades do software de cartões, assim como os aplicativos de back-end".

"Através do suporte da Gemalto, a EE tem acesso imediato a todo o conhecimento e experiência adquiridos em nossas recentes implementações de alto perfil no Japão e nos EUA", acrescentou o vice-presidente sênior de Telecomunicações da Gemalto, Philippe Vrignaud. "A EE está liderando a introdução da tecnologia LTE no Reino Unido, e as tecnologias de software de front-end e back-end UpTeq LTE da Gemalto permitirão o rápido desenvolvimento do potencial integral das redes LTE1".

1 USIM para acesso padrão de rede, ISIM para acesso de rede IMS e RoHTTP para suportar a implementação do aplicativo dentro do padrão Global Platform.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
