Gemalto's Cinterion M2M provides wireless connectivity for Invisible Tracck

Jan 18, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Gemalto NV, a provider of digital security solutions, has announced that its Cinterion M2M business is providing wireless connectivity for Invisible Tracck, developed by Cargo Tracck, a technology provider in Brazil. Invisible Tracck is a device used in a pilot program to thwart illegal deforestation in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil.

The device uses Gemalto's Cinterion M2M technology together with local cellular networks to send location updates from sensors in trees to a central server allowing officials to remotely track trees removed from protected areas.

The Gemalto-powered Invisible Tracck solution was deployed to detect unauthorized logging activities missed by traditional satellite surveillance and radio monitoring. Smaller than a deck of cards, the discreet device combines Gemalto's tiny Cinterion BGS2 module with cutting-edge localization algorithms and new Radiation Exchange Data (RED) technology that extends the range of wireless communications in low signal areas.

The solution is covertly installed in trees located in active harvesting and sends alarm notifications and exact location information to officials as soon as trees pass within 20 miles of a cellular network. This enables law enforcement and the Brazilian environmental protection agency IBAMA agents to respond in real time, trace the loggers to sawmills and prevent the sale and profit from illegally harvested lumber. With the rugged durability and sophisticated power management system of Gemalto's Cinterion M2M solution, the device can operate reliably in the field for over a year without recharging batteries.

"The rainforest in Brazil is approximately the size of the US so it's impossible to monitor each and every acre," added Ramzi Abdine, general manager of Cinterion M2M at Gemalto Latin America. "The Cargo Tracck solution offers a compelling example of the power of M2M technology in overcoming unique business challenges to extend the reach of traditional tracking and tracing methods." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
