Mobile World Conference 2017: Soracom launches IoT connectivity services in Europe

BARCELONA, Mar-2-2017 — /EPR TELECOM NEWS/ — Soracom announced this week at Mobile World Conference its launch of IoT connectivity services in Europe and confirmed commitment to growing IoT by eliminating the barriers related to security, price, speed-to-value and scalability that currently limit IoT development.

The Internet of things offers endless possibilities. With IoT adoption growing quickly, developers are finding that security and scalability remain key challenges. For start-ups and developers, typical enterprise-grade solutions are out of reach, and more affordable solutions often lack crucial security features.

“We offer low start-up costs, no binding contracts and a flexible pay-as-you-go model for every use case, from garage-level prototyping to massive industrial deployments,” said Parag Mittal, Chief Commercial Officer of Soracom. “We need a sustainable Internet of Things. A smart meter that consumes lot of power for onboard encryption and data transmission to the cloud is not that smart. By reducing power and data consumption on the device side, and delivering a private network as a service for everyone, we ensure a secure, scalable, sustainable ecosystem for IoT.”

“Soracom aims to use its platform to contribute to the overall growth of the IoT industry,” said Ken Tamagawa, Chief Executive Officer of Sorcom. “Current IoT connectivity providers do not really offer secure and swift delivery of services that are affordable and available for everyone in a democratized way. Connecting devices to the internet or the cloud is the easy part. Securing devices and data is the most critical. If it’s on the public internet, it’s hackable. Our customers connect their devices directly to the cloud, using a private network provided by Soracom instead of public internet.”

Widely recognized as one of Japan’s leading IoT technology providers, Soracom uses a unique approach and architecture to provide secure data transfer at lower costs for its global customers and brings this technology to users across all industries. Canon, Konica MinoltaSafecast, Komatsu, Omniflow, and Enerbrain are just a few among the 5,000 clients Soracom connects today.

Soracom’s SIM cards are tailored for IoT devices and can be managed through APIs and a web console that allow convenient, real-time activation/deactivation of SIMs, traffic monitoring, network configuration and visualization, storage and management of data, and many more detailed operations.

Plusnet Achieves Third Consecutive Which? Recommendation

Plusnet, the UK home phone and broadband supplier, has received its third consecutive recommendation from Which? – the largest independent consumer body in the country.

Plusnet broadband has been given a four star rating for connection reliability, value for money, customer service and ease of set up and has been named as a “Which? Recommended Provider”.

To become a “Which? Recommended Provider” a product must receive an overall score of at least 70% in their consumer survey and get an average or above ratings for all other aspects of service. Close to 600 Plusnet customers were questioned in the survey and gave Plusnet broadband an overall score of 73%. This is a hat-trick title for Plusnet who has previously gained the status in August 2011 and March this year.

Jamie Ford, Plusnet CEO said: “It is great to be recognised for the combination of value for money and high quality service which we consistently offer our customers. To get this recommendation for the third time running, based on genuine customer feedback, is testament to the improvements we have been making at Plusnet.

“We continue to offer 24/7, free phone UK support and in the last year we’ve set up specialist teams that focus on the most common customer concerns. Whether it is enabling someone to get the best connection speed or prevent latency on time sensitive services such as on-demand TV, we can now give specific and individual advice to ensure the best possible experience.”

Plusnet has already won four uSwitch Broadband Awards this year, claiming the ‘Best Customer Rated Broadband Provider’, ‘Best Value Home Broadband’, ‘Most Reliable Service’ and ‘Most Likely to be Recommended’ categories. It has also gained industry accolade this month winning ‘Best Consumer Fixed Broadband’ at the Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) awards.

With 24/7 call centre support based entirely in Sheffield and free to call from a UK landline, all advisors are technically trained, do not work from scripts and look to resolve any problems first time. For more information on Plusnet, go to www.plus.net

CompareBroadband.com.au Poll Finds Broadband Connection Important to House Hunters

A new survey carried out by leading broadband comparison site Compare Broadband (comparebroadband.com.au) has found that house hunters consider a reliable, fast home broadband connection to be high on their list of priorities.

The site polled users and found that 78 percent of 300 respondents factor broadband access into the equation when they are looking into renting or buying a new property.

Sarah McDonald, Compare Broadband spokesperson, commented: “We regularly field calls from people who want advice on installing a home broadband connection and we often advise them on the best provider such as SpinTel broadband on the website. Sometimes people find that they have unknowingly moved from a place where they had access to fast a range of broadband plans to a place where they have no broadband choices at all.”

“We’re able to advise people on mobile broadband packages in these cases, but for someone self-employed working from home for example it can be a problem. They prefer solid, reliable connectivity.”

As the National Broadband Network (NBN) goes on connecting all the regions of Australia, the variance between types of internet connectivity available could well increase. Some places will receive speeds of up to 100Mbps and others will remain tied to mobile broadband or basic ADSL.

Specialist comparison websites like Compare Broadband are able to screen regions and addresses for quality of ADSL connection on a preliminary basis – though this is not guarantee of service.

Tips for house hunters
1. An area’s name or reputation does not guarantee quality broadband connection.

2. Speak to previous tenants or occupiers about their own internet connection or provider.

3. Call Compare Broadband on 1300 764 000 or get online to source impartial advice on ISPs

4. Greenfield developments advertised as fibre optic ready can deliver broadband connectivity at speeds of up to 100Mbps.

5. NBN offers a map online to see which areas of the country are in line for next generation broadband rollout.

Compare Mobile Plans Supports ACMA Plan for Clarity of Comms Industry Terminology

Australian mobile users can look forward to less confusing mobile industry terminology if industry regulator Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) gets its way. The body has warned ISPs and mobile providers to clear up the various buzzwords they use such as ‘cap’ to help consumers enjoy more clarity of pricing plans.

ACMA is also targeting other industry terms in a bid to make consumers’ lives easier – the regulator wants to see a voluntary code of conduct in place to which ISPs will commit. Other industry terms are on the ACMA hitlist as it seeks to make the sector clearer and simpler for consumers.

‘Unlimited Plans’
Any companies which claim to offer ‘unlimited’ plans now need to clarify what they are supplying to subscribers. Many consumers remain confused about contractual details as small print often contains nuances about what is actually covered in their ‘unlimited’ contract, such as heavy charges for calling 1300 numbers.

ACMA wants all providers to remove the misleading word from promotional materials to help reassure consumers. In recent times some operators have taken steps to do this, including Vodafone removing ‘Infinite’ from plans and Amaysim including 1300 and 1800 numbers in Unlimited plans.

Sarah McDonald, spokesperson for Compare Mobile Plans, says: “We are really pleased to see ACMA taking this step, and it can only benefit consumers and the industry in general. Those providers which promise ‘Unlimited’ plans must deliver on that commitment or remove the term from their plans.”

Cap and Included Value
ACMA is also targeting misuse of the term ‘Cap’ in plans, unless providers are truly promoting plans which genuinely limit subscribers on what amounts they can spend on calls and data usage.

In its recent clarion call ACMA included a demand for providers to issue a ‘unit price’ for two-minute voice calls, unit prices per text and a standard cost for 1MB of data usage.

Flagfall
Visitors to Australia from outside the country regularly find themselves confused by the term ‘Flagfall’, which is linked to call connection charges – something which no longer exists in other western telecoms markets like the USA and Europe.

“There isn’t really any justification any longer for Australian ISPs to be charging for flagfall. This is another area where providers could help both the
industry and subscribers out by getting rid of it,” Sarah McDonald went on.

In recent times fledgling provider Amaysim took a stand and launched a range of no contract SIM only plans for Australian subscribers which don’t include any flagfall charges.

Included data
ACMA is also targeting included data contracts which can mislead consumers, in response to the high levels of smartphone penetration today enjoyed in Australia – the country is at 37% penetration right now.

“While ISPs and operators may find it easy to distinguish between ‘included data’ and ‘excess data’ plans, many consumers remain a bit baffled by them and need more clarity,” Sarah McDonald goes on. “Roaming charges is another area which consumers are still pretty puzzled by and they are fed up of getting charged huge sums simply for travelling – providers must address this.”

Comparing mobile phone plans
The variety of confusing industry terms around can make it hard to source and purchase the right subscription – but websites are here to help. Comparison specialists such as Compare Mobile Plans offer simple ways to calculate your needs and how much you want to spend on voice and data before signing up to a deal. The website carries all the latest offers from providers including Telstra, iPrimus, Westnet, InternodeTPG Internet and many more. Users can also compare the latest handsets and mobile devices on the site.

As before, customers will also get $10 included call credit to use for international calls or international SMS, video calls, MMS or any additional data over their included 1GB.

Two other versions of The Mega Plan are also available, and both include unlimited standard calls and SMS, 1GB data and an amount of included call credit. To top-up during their 30-day access, customers can choose between two Mega Recharge values which gives them additional included credit for their extra international call and data needs.

After 30 days, customers can renew their Mega Plan, and any unused call credit will roll over – a feature which most other unlimited packages exclude.

The latest Lebara Mega Plan can be purchased from all Lebara Mobile retail partners including Allphones, Australia Post, 7-Eleven, Coles & Coles Express, Woolworths Supermarkets & Petrol, Dick Smith and independent retailers, or see online for special offers at www.lebara.com.au.

Results Are In: Revel Systems’ David and Goliath Story Continues

On January 31, 2012 Revel Systems was officially announced as the winner of the Business iPad App of the Year Award. This weekend at Macworld | iWorld, it was clear early on that the Best Business iPad App awards came down to two remarkable companies: Square, led by Jack Dorsey, and Revel Systems, led by female entrepreneur Lisa Falzone. Both of the nominees were a hit with the crowd, and both were in the payment industry, which is the fastest-moving market for iPad apps. Even though voters were presented with an impressive field of nominees, the battle was clearly dominated by these two competitors.

While competition was fierce between Square and Revel, here’s a breakdown of the vote: First of all, users chose Revel Systems as the most useful business iPad app. Revel was also found to help with a wider array of business functions, with seven to Square’s four. Square was found to have over 100,000 users, while Revel Systems has fewer than 100,000. As far as which offers the simplest user interface, both companies were tied. Finally, users chose Revel Systems as the company with the best customer support.

In the end, Macworld users declared Revel Systems iPad POS the winner. Lisa Falzone, CEO and co-founder of Revel Systems, told iPad Biz Apps today that “Revel is honored to have won such an award, and thanks all of the voters at Macworld | iWorld for voting for them.” A wide range of powerful apps were represented, but Revel’s sophisticated level of functionality and wide range of applications led to its selection as the best iPad business app.

Even though Square has been nominated for a Crunchies award, and has over 100,000 customers, users found that it only supplies a payment app. On the other hand, Revel Systems offers a fully functional Point of Sale system to manage every task that store owners encounter on a daily basis. This can explain why Revel has landed deals with many heavy-hitters like Popeye’s Chicken in Georgia (popeyes.com), Illy Coffee in San Francisco (illy.com), U-sushi in San Francisco (u-sushi.com), Camille’s Sidewalk Café in Oklahoma (www.camillescafe.com), and other big franchises. On the other hand, Square’s clientele is largely restricted to businesses that only require a few simple operations, including farmers’ markets, taxi cabs, and street vendors.

Now that the competition is over, Ms. Falzone is back to leading Revel Systems to the top of the Point of Sale marketplace. She has raised $3.7 million in her “A” round of funding last year and is gearing up for her “B” round. The recent victory of Revel Systems has cemented Ms. Falzone’s place among today’s top women entrepreneurs, and she looks forward to the future of what Revel Systems will accomplish. Moving forward, the company hopes to facilitate growth through its open API, which allows all companies to integrate into Revel—creating new opportunities for local commerce to thrive into the future.

The Hottest Full Scale 3D Action Adventure Role Playing Game to Hit iPad, iPhone and Android Devices

Game Scorpion Inc. enters the App market with their first video game titled Melina’s Conquest, a 3D Role Playing Action Adventure Game that’s not only fun and challenging but also won’t break the bank!

Easy, Fun, Budget Price, Graphics, Music – As prices of mobile devices have been falling, more and more people have been purchasing apps for their new devices. What was not possible on mobile devices just several years ago has now become a reality. 3D graphics and high quality gaming at a budget price for the masses was once a dream on these small pocket gadgets. Many new developers usually did not stand a chance against console style games, but the new app markets have changed that completely to allow for mobile developers to create their games for the masses. Now the mobile app gold rush has been booming and jumping onto that band wagon is newcomer Game Scorpion Inc. with their first offering called Melinas Conquest, a full 3D action adventure role playing game (RPG) for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android mobile devices.

“We developed Melinas Conquest with one thing in mind…FUN!”, says Abhinav Gupta, Lead Developer and CEO of Game Scorpion Inc.

“Gameplay was a major item that we looked at with this game. I have personally seen many games out there that have high end 3D graphics and look ‘pretty’ on the screen, but when it came time to play the game, it was either boring or very confusing to play.”

Melinas Conquest features easy to use controls and an easy to manipulate camera. A single button is given for attacking enemies and a simple timer and ranking system.

“The goal of the game is simple, you just need to run from one end of the level to the other side without getting killed by all the various traps and enemies that pop up. At the same time along the way you will have to defeat major bosses and can follow along with an interesting storyline that ties into our future games.”

So what makes this game different from others in the market? “Price, levels and gameplay!”, says Gupta, “Many games that feature 3D graphics in the App Store or the Android Marketplace usually go for around $4.99 for their full versions. We are at a mere $2.99 price and offer 20 levels of gameplay which in most cases is far higher than what others are offering. We also make our game easy for players to play. You get value for your money and a high quality game at the end of the day that will satisfy even the most frugal shopper! Also, no two players will play the game the same way as the levels are auto-generated.”

It took Gupta and his team approximately six months to develop the game from the ground up. “There were times where I even thought we were not going to be able to get the game done…it was 16-20 hour days for myself every day for the past six months, praying daily hoping that our game would release and would be successful.”

A lot of small independent game developers like Gupta do not earn any money during development. This can be quite a challenge to have no income hoping that an app will hit off. In this market, apps can be made over a weekend and make millions or can take months and make nothing at all. “It’s a coin toss”, says Gupta, “but I personally believe that if we focus on quality games, sooner or later our players will pay for that quality and our games will start to increase in popularity.”

As a Computer Science Graduate from Ryerson University Gupta took the leap of faith into the app world at the beginning of 2011 and has finally made that dream come true. “It was a lot of hard work, a lot of faith in God and a great team behind me. Lots of support from my wife and family really helped out.”

Melinas Conquest is now live on the Apple App Store and on the Android Marketplace and can be purchased as of October 15th, 2011, for just $2.99.

Untethered Jailbreak iPhone 4/3Gs 5.0/4.3.5 and Unlock Using FastRa1n

After the release of latest iOS 5.0 and iOS 4.3.5 folks start asking about that they can unlock and untethered jailbreak iPhone 4/3Gs 5.0/4.3.5/4.3.4/4.3.3 devices on latest released iOS.

After some time of bomb questions we got a good news from Jailbreak and unlock iPhone 4/3Gs ios 5.0 community that this new update of iOS is still jailbreak and unlock able with fastra1n, this time this news is come from the www.FastUnlockiPhone.com Team.

To Jailbreak and Unlock Your iPhone Using FastRa1n Visit The Official Websitewww.FastUnlockiPhone.com

Well its not mean that you can jailbreak your iPhone right now, to jailbreak your iPhone to get untethered jailbreak and unlock you have to visit the fast unlock iphone team website and get the new versions of their tool FastRa1n. The FastUnlockiPhone.com released FastRa1n to support untether jailbreak for all devices (except iPad 2) on iOS 4.3.5 and 5.0 firmware.

We have already covered extensive how-to tutorials for jailbreaking iOS 4.3.5 on iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad and iPod touch 4G/3G. In case you are still facing problem, follow the well explained instructions in the official website below to jailbreak your compatible iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, iPod touch untethered on iOS 4.3.5/5.0 using Redsn0w.

Apple is pretty good about getting the latest versions of iOS onto the streets in an effort to sooth consumer gripes and make the platform better than ever. However, while they make their usual round of plugging bugs and other security exploits they usually plug the exploits used by jailbreakers to actually perform a jailbreak. Luckily, this doesn’t seem to be the case with iOS 4.3.5 as already a jailbreak and unlock method as been made available with the name of fastra1n.

Just the other day we let you know that fastra1n had been updated to unlock / jailbreak Apple’s latest iOS 4.3.5 and ios 5.0 release. However, it’s been made known today that this same jailbreak can also be used to perform an untethered jailbreak for the system. For those not aware, an untethered jailbreak allows you to jailbreak your device once and then be done with it – even when you reboot your device. A tethered jailbreak, on the other hand, requires a user to perform the jailbreak every time the device is turned off or otherwise loses power.

So this is great news for iPhone owners running iOS 5.0 and 4.3.5 as they now have an easy way to perform an untethered jailbreak. Unfortunately, it’s also been made known that fastra1n still does not include support for the iPad 2 so you’ll still have to wait tight for that. On the bright side of things everyone from iPhone to Apple TV owners can now perform the jailbreak.
