Eutelsat and Facebook to partner on satellite initiative to get more Africans online

Press Release   •  Oct 05, 2015 05:00 GMT Two companies to build a High Throughput Satellite system using dedicated broadband capacity on Spacecom AMOS-6 satellite                 Paris, 5 October 2015 – Eutelsat Communications (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) and Facebook today announce they are partnering on a new initiative that will leverage satellite technologies to get more Africans online. Under a multi-year agreement with Spacecom, the two companies will utilise the entire broadband payload on the future AMOS-6 satellite and will build a dedicated system comprising satellite capacity, gateways and terminals. In providing reach to large parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, Eutelsat and Facebook will each be equipped to pursue their ambition to accelerate data connectivity for the many users deprived of the economic and social benefits of the Internet. Spot beams for community and Direct-to-User access Scheduled for start of service in the second half of 2016, the Ka-band payload on the AMOS-6 geostationary satellite is configured with high gain spot beams covering large parts of West, East and Southern Africa. The capacity is optimised for community and Direct-to-User Internet access using affordable, off-the-shelf customer equipment. According to the terms of the agreement, the capacity will be shared between Eutelsat and Facebook. State of the art satellite technology to meet pent-up demand Using state of the art satellite technology, Eutelsat and Facebook will each deploy Internet services designed to relieve pent-up demand for connectivity from the many users in Africa beyond range of fixed and mobile terrestrial networks. Satellite networks are well suited to economically connecting people in low to medium density population areas and the high throughput satellite architecture of AMOS-6 is expected to contribute to additional gains in cost efficiency. Eutelsat steps up Internet activity in Africa The capacity will enable Eutelsat to step up its broadband activity in Sub-Saharan Africa that was initiated using Ku-band satellites to serve professional users. Eutelsat is establishing a new company based in London that will steer its African broadband vision and business. The company will be led by Laurent Grimaldi, founder and former CEO of Tiscali International Network, and will focus on serving premium consumer and professional segments. Facebook continues Internet.org initiative Two years ago, Facebook announced Internet.org , an effort to accelerate the rate of connectivity by addressing the physical, economic and social barriers that are keeping people from getting online. For Facebook, this satellite system represents one of many technology investments to enable cost-effective broadband access to unconnected populations. Facebook plans to work with local partners across Africa to utilise satellite and terrestrial capacity to deliver services to rural areas. “Facebook’s mission is to connect the world and we believe that satellites will play an important role in addressing the significant barriers that exist in connecting the people of Africa,” said Chris Daniels, VP of Internet.org .  “We are looking forward to partnering with Eutelsat on this project and investigating new ways to use satellites to connect people in the most remote areas of the world more efficiently.” Commenting on the agreement, Michel de Rosen, Eutelsat Chairman and CEO, said: “We are excited by this opportunity to accelerate the deployment of our broadband strategy and to partner with Facebook on a new initiative to provide Internet access services in Africa. Eutelsat’s strong track record in operating High Throughput Satellite systems will ensure that we can deliver accessible and robust Internet solutions that get more users online and part of the Information Society.”   For more information from Facebook : Derick Mains, derickmains@fb.com   About Eutelsat Communications Established in 1977, Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris: ETL, ISIN code: FR0010221234) is one of the worlds leading and most experienced operators of communications satellites.

Le marché audiovisuel en Australie

Baptiste - 20-août-2015 03:31:58
Fin 2013, l’Australie est passée à la télévision 100% numérique en désactivant définitivement son réseau hertzien. Le déploiement de la TNT étant achevé, la télévision gratuite (free-to-air) est désormais diffusée exclusivement en digital. A peine cette transition complétée, l’organisme en charge d’aligner les plateformes de diffusion – Freeview – a planifié le déploiement de la télévision interactive dès le second semestre 2014. Le standard choisi, le HbbTV, est une technologie développée principalement par un consortium européen et est le standard adopté en France pour la télévision interactive. La plupart des chaînes a désormais une application HBB TV. Tout comme en France, la migration de la télévision vers le digital a permis la création de nouvelles chaînes, entraînant le risque de réduction du temps d’antenne publicitaire des chaînes et donc de leurs revenus. Internet semble désormais être le nouveau champ de bataille. L’augmentation des débits et la multiplication des appareils connectés (smartphones et tablettes) déplacent les téléspectateurs des réseaux TV locaux vers d’autres supports et plateformes. Les différents acteurs audiovisuels sont du fait très attentifs aux nouvelles solutions qui peuvent leur être apportées tous domaines confondus : second & multi screen, catch-up TV, VOD, TV interactive… Retrouvez toutes les informations en téléchargeant la fiche   "Le marché audiovisuel en Australie" .

UBIFRANCE helps French IT startups plug into global opportunities

Mathilde Mortreuil - 09-déc.-2014 01:58:21
  IT sector is no longer a novelty market. Companies of all sizes and sectors must have a scope of digital services for their clients or risk losing business. Fayssal Majid, Ubifrance’s IT project manager, explains: ““Smartphone will be the new platform for all companies. They will need to have a mobile application as well as a site in order to attract customers and maintain a market share.” By 2020 the number of smartphone mobile subscriptions is expected to more than double to 6.1 billion. This is nearly the size of today’s global population of 6.7 billion.   Today’s France, ready for tomorrow’s world France offers a mobilized IT ecosystem that is leveraging the best of France to not only satisfy the domestic market but also capture global customers. In fact the domestic market, a kind of reflection of the society’s focus on technology, has been following other developed countries in internet penetration and mobile usage: 54% of the French population uses the internet on their mobile and 74% of smartphone users research products and services on their phone.   Therefore, it should come as no surprise that France will be sending the biggest national delegation to 2015’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The size of delegation can be attributed to the quality of French engineers and the well-organized research clusters, many at a regional level, which offer incubation for a variety of independent ideas. For example take Systematic, a cluster from the Paris region, which has helped develop 379 projects and attracted investment of 2 billion euros over its brief history.  In fact, Mr. Majid explains that there are even further layers of organization that benefit the start up culture in France: “There are all startups which are very proud of their French roots but are looking globally. An initiative in collaboration with UBIFRANCE, La French Tech, helps them achieve this goal.”   La French Tech is a great collective project for the growth and influence of the French Start-ups and digital ecosystem and has been behind such firms as the award winning Citizen Sciences. Citizen Sciences is a prime example of a French company that is not only matching but also advancing the technological frontier. Citizen Sciences is pioneering application of the field of “the internet of things” – the connectivity of everyday items for the purpose of improving usage and limiting human involvement – towards the human staple of clothing. At the moment they are working on products that will gather multiples of data, from heart rate to specific movements, for athletes as to improve their performance. The company was recognized as a winner of an Innovation Award at the 2014 Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.   Ubifrance helps you reach your potential     Mr. Majid believes that the Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress in spring of 2015 is the perfect springboard for French businesses for global markets. IT has become much more of a global phenomenon and Mr. Majid believes that the direction of French companies should not only be towards showcases and markets in the US, but also emerging markets in Asia, South America and Africa: “Yes, French companies have always thought about the US, but in fact there is also much interest from places like the Middle East South East Asia and Africa, markets that are very large and growing.” Since the Mobile World Congress is a global event, this will provide the perfect introduction of French companies to prospective clients from all over the world.   Oledcomm is an example of a company that will be joining Mr. Majid in Barcelona. They are doing something truly special. Their products leverage your lighting network into something many of us find unthinkable: wireless communication and Internet services.   Famoco is yet another French company that will be at the MWC in Barcelona and they are working on a problem that we all thought would be solved by now – contactless payment. Such advancements require massive logistical coordination and Famoco is making this possible. Look to Famoco to improve your experience in stores all around the world.   UBIFRANCE, the French agency for international business development, has 80 offices overseas. Its role is to help French companies in marketing their products abroad, as well assist foreign companies in finding French suppliers or partners.   More information about… Oledcomm Famoco The French Tech Pavilion @ Mobile World Congress

France shows the way to doing e-commerce!

Alain Cimaz - 17-juin-2014 10:28:12
Interview : Alain CIMAZ, Retailing and Services Department Project Manager at Ubifrance   We all use e-commerce (and some of us all of the time), but do we fully realize in our economic crystal balls what the virtual universe of the Internet can do for a business? France does, to the tune of €51,1billion in 2013.   With broadband internet feeding households like never before, this trend is accelerating, up 13.5% this past year, even while traditional sales outlets are declining. Naturally, French e-commerce is part of a European phenomenon: sophisticated, well-educated consumers shopping and comparing on-line, whether it is for train tickets, fashion items, books and downloaded films, not to mention concert tickets or even electronic products and vacations. In fact, France finds itself positioned right in the middle of more mature on-line markets such as the UK and Scandinavia, while catering to fast-growing cyber-markets in Southern Europe.   Impressive numbers – and then there’s Christmas! The typical cyber-consumer in France spends on average €1400 annually, with a choice spanning 138,000 merchandizing sites, clicking to satisfy 33.7 million purchasers, each one with his or her own very personalized criteria. This represents a 17% growth rate for the number of sites in 2013, fueled by a rise of 5% in on-line buyers last year. Christmas frenzy often spells financial success for many e-commerce sites. For France, December 2013 accounted for a whopping €10 billion   of the year’s total results.   The Best in Class go international 15% of French sites export, generating 10% of their sales internationally. The really successful sites, representing over €10 million   in turnover, are able to boost these international sales by up to 20% of their total turnover. For 2013, the champions are Vente Privée, with € 1,6 billion, Showroom Privé, €350 million, Sarenza at €150 million   and in 29 different countries, while Spartoo out-does them by €130 million in 20 countries throughout Europe.   Cross-channel strategies Traditional companies such as Darty, Auchan and even Air France have grasped the importance of developing interfaces with e-commerce, selling cross-channel, from virtual to POS (Place of Sale). Tourism is an especially heavy-hitter, with Opodo and Go Voyages receiving avid travelers. Even SNCF-Voyages is also getting into the trend with offers covering car rentals and hotels, not just trains, and not just trains in Europe! E-commerce allows companies to envision doing business in entirely refreshing and international ways.   In B to B, the office supplies segment is active, with Bruneau and Viking modeling their entire business on-line, a lesson not lost on Manutan for its equipment.   The rules to play by With smart-phones now in every pocket, French companies are alert to adapting to international opportunities: respecting local-country consumer legislation, marketing with multi-lingual sites, regularly upgrading to be ergonomic, enriching their offers constantly. The usual rate of transformation from visit to virtual shopping cart is 2.5%; so New Age merchants must be quick to adapt to this new breed of impatient, demanding clientele. The e-consumer wants easy, practical and totally secure payment solutions ranging from credit card to Paypal. They also expect EU legislation on profiling and reimbursements to be strictly adhered to by the e-commerce site.   Up and coming events where Ubifrance can leverage exhibition opportunities for French e-commerce companies will be in Milan on May 20 th , in the UK and Ireland, from September 16 – 18 th , followed by San Paolo, October 6 – 7 th , with BtoB meetings dedicated to private sales.       For Further information about French companies in the e-commerce Sector :   > Electronics and IT   > Telecommunications and Space   > Trade and distribution   > Services   > Audiovisual content, Multimedia
