El gobierno colombiano selecciona capacidad satelital de Eutelsat

El Ministerio de Defensa de Colombia ha firmado un acuerdo con Eutelsat Communications (Paris:ETL) por capacidad de banda Ku en el satélite EUTELSAT 115 West B.

El contrato multitranspondedor, el primero entre Eutelsat y el Ministerio de Defensa de Colombia, se da siguiendo a la firma de un acuerdo gobierno a gobierno entre Francia y Colombia, diseñado para fomentar la cooperación en el contexto del año Francia-Colombia.

El gobierno colombiano aprovechará los niveles de potencia excepcionales de EUTELSAT 115 West B sobre la región andina para albergar las redes del Ministerio de Defensa en todo el país, utilizadas por el Comando General de las Fuerzas Militares, el Ejército y la Fuerza Aérea de Colombia.

El General José Javier Pérez Mejía, Viceministro de Defensa de Colombia, dijo: “El Ministerio de Defensa de Colombia buscaba integrar todo el sistema de comunicaciones satelitales de nuestras fuerzas de defensa a través de un solo proveedor que pudiera cumplir con nuestras necesidades diversas. De todos los países que convocamos Francia, a través de Eutelsat, presentó la mejor oferta económica y técnica y esto es lo que nos llevó a elegir el satélite EUTELSAT 115 West B.”

Michel Azibert, Director Comercial y de Desarrollo de Eutelsat, agregó: “Este primer acuerdo con el Ministerio de Defensa de Colombia refuerza nuestro compromiso por trabajar de la mano con los gobiernos de todo el mundo para encontrar soluciones eficientes para sus necesidades de conectividad y seguridad. Estamos encantados de estar trabajando juntos en el contexto del Año Francia-Colombia 2017, reforzando aún más la relación entre ambos países.”

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Busine...
Deep learning has been very successful in social sciences and specially areas where there is a lot of data. Trading is another field that can be viewed as social science with a lot of data. With the advent of Deep Learning and Big Data technologies for efficient computation, we are finally able to use the same methods in investment management as we would in face recognition or in making chat-bots. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Gaurav Chakravorty, co-founder and Head of Strategy Development ...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Randy De Meno, Chief Technologist - Windows Products and Microsoft Part...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
