Duracell Powermat verleiht drahtlosem Strom beispiellose Intelligenz und Kraft

- Mit der Fusion der drahtlosen Daten- mit der drahtlosen Stromübertragung gelingt eine erheblich intelligentere und leistungsstärkere Technologie

BARCELONA, Spanien, 25. Februar 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile World Congress – Mit zwei Upgrades ist die Technologie der drahtlosen Stromübertragung heute in beispielloser Weise intelligenter und leistungsstärker geworden.

Das drahtlose Daten-„Maschennetz" versorgt die drahtlose Stromübertragung mit Intelligenz    
Infolge seines Versprechens, die drahtlose Stromübertragung zu einer intelligenten Technologie zu machen, präsentiert Duracell Powermat jetzt drahtlose Übertragungsoberflächen, die als „Maschennetz" funktionieren, so dass drahtlose Ladestationen in aller Welt zentral überwacht und gemanagt werden können.  

Diese neue Netztopographie ist ideal für den Einsatz an öffentlichen Standorten wie Cafés, Flughäfen und Stadien, so dass der Standort jede drahtlose Ladestation über ein zentralisiertes, in der Cloud gehostetes System überwachen, nachrüsten und strategisch verwalten kann. „Letztendlich kann damit jeder Standort Updates und Instruktionen in Echtzeit an jede Ladestation senden und auch empfangen", sagte Daniel Schreiber, Präsident von Powermat Technologies, dem Hersteller der Technologie für drahtlose Stromübertragung, die die Basis für alle Duracell Powermat-Produkte bildet. „Dies verwandelt die drahtlose Stromübertragung in öffentlichen Bereichen mit ihren unzusammenhängenden, einzelnen Oberflächen in ein intelligentes globales Netz." 

Diese Entwicklung von einem analogen Verbraucherprodukt zu einer digitalen Unternehmensplattform eröffnet neue Szenarien für die Nutzung und neue Geschäftsmodelle, wie etwa:

  • Apps, die an jedem Standort der Welt die nächste verfügbare drahtlose Ladestation finden
  • Standorte können kontrollieren, wer ihre drahtlose Stromübertragung für wie lange und zu welchen Bedingungen nutzen kann 
  • Unternehmen mit Tausenden von Standorten und Abertausenden von drahtlosen Ladestationen können Nutzungsmuster überwachen, den Zustand ihres drahtlosen Stromnetzes evaluieren  und per Fernwartung Support und Upgrades liefern

„Für Unternehmen, die die drahtlose Stromübertragung in großem Umfang einsetzen möchten, ist die Kombination aus drahtloser Stromübertragung und modernen Kommunikationsprotokollen und Cloud-Computing entscheidend. Und das ist, was unser System zu bieten hat", sagte Ron Rabinowitz, CEO von Duracell Powermat.  

Die Fähigkeit, die Stromversorgung je nach Leistungsbedarf der Geräte zu regulieren, verleiht der drahtlosen Stromübertragung beispiellose Kraft 
Die zweite Funktionalität, die am Stand von Duracell Powermat beim Mobile World Congress 2013 präsentiert wird, ist die „Kraft" der drahtlosen Stromversorgung: Drahtlose Ladestationen, die sich so regulieren, dass sie Smartphones, Tablets und sogar Ultrabooks mit Strom versorgen können. Die neuen drahtlosen Ladestationen liefern zwischen 5 und 50 Watt und verwenden denselben Formfaktor wie die vielen tausend Ladestationen, die in öffentlichen Bereichen bereits in Betrieb sind. Damit wird eine universelle Kompatibilität gewährleistet, und das Laden von Geräten mit unterschiedlicher Leistung erreicht einen Wirkungsgrad von bis zu 93 %. 

„Wenn man Hunderte von Ladestationen einrichten möchte, will man auch sicher sein, dass sie zukunftsfähig sind", sagte Greg Economou, Vorstand Vertrieb und Lösungen, Madison Square Garden.  „Unsere Entscheidung für den Einsatz der Powermat-Technologie im umgestalteten Madison Square Garden in so großem Umfang ist direkt darauf zurückzuführen, dass die Technologie auf unsere Bedürfnisse und, was noch wichtiger ist, auf die Bedürfnisse unserer Fans eingestellt werden kann. Wir kennen keine anderen Angebote, die dies auch nur annähernd leisten."

Durch die Kombination aus Kraft und Intelligenz sind die Duracell Powermat-Ladestationen in einzigartiger Weise für den Bedarf an Skalierbarkeit in öffentlichen Bereichen ausgerüstet. Tatsächlich wird in fast 100 % der drahtlosen Stromversorgung in öffentlichen Bereichen in den USA die Powermat-Technologie bereits eingesetzt. Dazu gehören der Madison Square Garden, einige ausgewählte Regis-Salons, Starbucks Cafés, Delta Sky Clubs und Westfield-Einkaufszentren sowie der 40/40 Club von Jay-Z.

More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.

Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
