10.09.2015 | Press Release   Telstra today announced the rebrand of recently acquired business, Globecast Australia, to Telstra Broadcast Services, unveiling the new brand at the International Broadcasting Conference (IBC) in Amsterdam. The move cements Telstra’s commitment to providing deeper capabilities in media services for customers in the broadcasting industry. Telstra Broadcast Services offers its global customer base media delivery over satellite platforms, including direct to home satellite transmission and IPTV managed services; IP streaming and encoding; satellite monitoring and disaster recovery. It has also developed live point-of-view miniature camera technology which is used extensively at sporting events through its Globecam business. Martijn Blanken, Group Managing Director, Telstra Global Enterprise and Services, said, “Telstra Broadcast Services, formerly known as Globecast Australia, has built an enviable reputation ensuring its customers can deliver the quality content their users expect, quickly and effectively. When coupled with our extensive investment in Ooyala, our partnership with Akamai and our growing portfolio of specialised media products,  our decision to rebrand and clearly define our media services division is a strong indication of the strategic importance of this industry to Telstra.” Simon Farnsworth, now the Head of Telstra Broadcast Services, said, “The business name may have changed, but we remain focused on the exceptional delivery of content for our customers all over the world. As we continue to integrate with the wider Telstra team and take advantage of the many synergies across the business, we can offer our customers a broader range of bundled services, representing better value for their media investments.” One of the first deals reached under the Telstra Broadcast Services name, has seen Network Ten renew a multi-year contract for its global content delivery via fibre. Jason Tuendemann, Chief Technology Officer at Network Ten said, “Network Ten has entrusted the Globecast Australia team with delivery of its live, digital television for more than a decade across satellite and fibre. “In recent years, OTT via Globestream and the Globecam miniature cameras have added new dimensions to the service provision and indeed to Ten’s interaction with audiences across news, sport and entertainment.  Telstra is also a long-standing, trusted partner of Ten and we now look forward to working with the Telstra Broadcast Services team.” This year will also see Telstra Broadcast Services increase its Globecam live, digital devices commitment for Network Ten’s broadcast of the KFC Big Bash League, with more games than ever before. Telstra will be exhibiting and presenting at IBC until 15 September, you can visit the Telstra Broadcast Services team, and see a demo of the Globecam technology in action, at stand F37 in Hall 14.   Media contact: Michael Zappone +61 438 004 959 Email:

Telstra et Optus annoncent la fin de leurs réseaux mobile 2G

Baptiste - 20-août-2015 03:40:50
Il y a un an, Telstra, premier opérateur téléphonique mobile en Australie annonçait   dans un article « It’s time to say goodbye old friend » la fermeture de son réseau 2G au 1 er décembre 2016. C’est maintenant au tour d’Optus, deuxième opérateur mobile en Australie d’annoncer la fin de son réseau 2G pour Avril 2017. Pour les deux opérateurs, le bilan est clair. La couverture 3G/4G est au moins aussi bonne que la couverture 2G dans le pays, aucun terminal 2G n’est sorti de leurs boutiques depuis plusieurs années, moins d’1% de leurs clients utilisent le réseau 2G et les chiffres diminuent de mois en mois. Il est donc temps d’abandonner ce réseau pour se focaliser sur le déploiement de la 4G qui répond au besoin grandissant de la population australienne : la DATA. Ce changement n’est malheureusement pas du gout de tout le monde en Australie. Les utilisateurs de téléphones et carte sim 2G reçoivent des SMS les avertissant de la fermeture du réseau et les invitant à se procurer un nouveau matériel.
