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.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

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.

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
