Angel Telecom meldet Erwerb von Vermögenswerten der Vivaro Corporation

Angel Telecom Corporation (AGLT: OTC Other) (NASDAQ: AGLT) gab heute bekannt, dass am 8. Februar 2013 Next Angel LLC, ein Joint Venture Unternehmen von Angel Telecom (Angel), Next Communications Inc. und Marcatel Telecommunications LLC, praktisch das gesamte Anlagevermögen der Vivaro Corp. und Tochtergesellschaften aus dem Konkurs von Vivaro erworben hat. Angel besitzt 42,5% der Next Angel LLC.

Vivaro und seine sechs Tochtergesellschaften, darunter STI Prepaid, STi Telecom und Kare Distribution, beantragten im September 2012 Gläubigerschutz gemäss Kapitel 11 des US-amerikanischen Konkursgesetzes. Vivaro und seine Tochtergesellschaften verkaufen Prepaid Calling Cards hauptsächlich an Hispanoamerikaner in den USA. Neben dem Sprachtelefondienst nach Mexiko hält Vivaro einen beträchtlichen Marktanteil an Telefonaten auch in andere lateinamerikanische Länder. Laut Eröffnung vom 30. November 2012 beim zuständigen Insolvenzgericht in New York, erwirtschaftete Vivaro und seine Tochtergesellschaften 2011 Erlöse in Höhe von ca. 376 Mio. US-Dollar. Misswirtschaft und mehrere Fehlentscheidungen des Managements führten dann zu einer entscheidenden Liquiditätskrise.

„Unsere strategische Partnerschaft mit Next Communications und Marcatel sowie die Übernahmen aller Assets von Vivaro sind wichtige Schritte für die künftige Entwicklung unseres Unternehmens“, kommentierte Peter Waneck, CEO von Angel. „Unser Einstieg in das Pre-paid Calling Card Geschäft in den USA und Lateinamerika schafft eine enorme Wachstumschance und wird das Handelsvolumen auf unserer ATTrade-Transaktionsplattform erheblich steigern. Gut geführt sind Prepaid-Card-Geschäfte sehr lukrativ. Wir sind der Überzeugung, dass das Potenzial des Prepaid-Calling-Card-Sektors aufgrund neuer Technologien, für bestehende und neue Kundensegmente, extrem hoch ist. Angel plant, bei diesen technologischen Entwicklungen zukünftig einer der Vorreiter zu sein.“

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...

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
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...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"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.
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.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
