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.

Friends Reunited launches mobile app to help save memories

Friends Reunited has launched a new mobile app to help people turn their old photos, tickets, letters and memorabilia into lasting memories. ‘My Keepsafe’ is available now, and for free, on Android and iPhones.

The new app allows Friends Reunited members to easily upload photos from their mobile phone to their Friends Reunited Keepsafe, which stores the memories privately and safely online. The Keepsafe contains uploaded photos, or any memories ‘kept’ on the Friends Reunited site, so users can now keep up with comments and conversations around these photos, wherever they are. The new app also gives people the ability to share those ‘Remember when’ moments happening around them, such as discovering a pack of Sherbet Dib Dabs in a local shop, or a picture from a reunited band’s comeback gig.

The app’s camera and editing tools make it simple to quickly digitise old photos and upload them privately, with just a couple of clicks. Once a photo is uploaded, it can be shared via Facebook, Twitter and email from directly within the app. It can also be shared with the thousands of memory boxes already created on Friends Reunited, or form the start of a brand new nostalgic collection.

Matt Bushby, Head of Friends Reunited commented: “Our members have shown a real desire for a quick and straightforward way to get their most precious memories online. The ‘My Keepsafe’ app was created to make this really easy; with inbuilt functionality to scan, edit and share memories from old albums and shoeboxes, or simply to upload photos saved on mobile phones.

“Since launch, we’ve seen members add thousands of photos to their own personal keepsafe boxes, covering anything from favourite sporting memories to the more intimate and personal family memories. As the home of the nation’s memories, we want to make it as easy as possible for people to share these amazing moments with the friends and family that really matter.”

Members can upload their memories with the peace of mind that they can easily control their privacy settings. The site allows people to store their most personal memories completely privately or choose to share those memories with a select few. In addition to the new app, the full Friends Reunited experience is available on mobile devices, allowing users to keep up with their favourite memory boxes, on the go.

Friends Reunited was launched in 2000 as the first UK social network. The phenomenon then spawned sister sites Genes Reunited and Friends Reunited Dating, in 2003, the Group was bought by ITV in 2005 and the social networking site went free in 2008. In March 2010 online publishing and technology group brightsolid purchased the Friends Reunited Group from ITV and has integrated it into its portfolio of pioneering sites where people go to search their past, share their story and connect with people and places. In April 2012 the new site launched to reunite the nation with every blast from their past and as the place to celebrate those ‘Remember when?’ moments.
