It’s 6 pm and I’m leaving work on my bike. Using GPS coordinates, my connected watch lets my household know I’m on my way. Hang on, I’ve got a message from my fridge: “We need more butter and eggs”. Quick detour to the supermarket and I’m back home. Red alert from my son’s schoolbag: Oscar still […]
Quantum Physics: from everyday life applications to network security The word “quantum” relates to the world of the infinitely small, therefore the constituent elements of matter (molecules, atoms, particles, etc.). The objects around us respect the laws of classical physics for space and time: for example, if a car is traveling from point A to […]
The spectators of the French Windsurf Championships have had the opportunity to experience real-time immersion thanks to a connectivity bubble.
Orange is involved in the University of Côte d’Azur’s Quantum@UCA project on quantum cryptographic key exchange over a city network.
With various academic partners and three companies, Orange has developed the OptimiSME solution to meet the expectations of SMEs for radio networks.
The 5G dynamic is enabling mobilisation of the ecosystem in bridging the gap of internet connectivity in sparsely populated areas.
Orange has conducted experiments showing that binaural sound on smartphones has been adapted for consumer roll-out.
Orange is preparing to test the smart antennas that will make up the 5th generation (5G) mobile networks of tomorrow.
Telecom systems and networks are caught in a massive long term evolution, from top-down-designed architectures under exclusive mastery of a single operator, towards federations of loosely coupled autonomous or semi-autonomous systems, managed by multiple independent actors, self-organizing in a bottom up fashion. The “systems of systems” viewpoint is meant to elicit the specificities of these new architectures, to analyze their non-engineered behaviors and evolutions, and to ultimately support their design and mastery under a new approach of engineering.
The purpose of ambient connectivity is to provide excellent connectivity to every user, anytime and anywhere.
The end of the Internet has been predicted many times over the years. The most famous of these came in 1995 from Bob Metcalfe, one of the founding fathers of the Internet, when he predicted ‘a catastrophic collapse’ for the Internet by the end of 1996. As the story goes, he had to literally eat […]
Need for a Carrier-grade Wi-Fi. The explosion of data traffic in the last 5 to 6 years is leading to Wi-Fi becoming an integral component in the delivery of broadband wireless services by fixed and mobile network operators around the globe. While in the short term the focus is on offloading cellular networks in particular locations, […]
