Altran North America News
A new chapter thus begins for the development of Altran, more than 35 years after its creation.
AEWIN today announced that it has collaborated with Altran, part of Capgemini to enable SD-WAN functionality on uCPE platforms for companies of all sizes.
An article by Ben Pietrabella, VP of Americas Network Equipment Providers, and R. Ezhirpavai, VP of Technology argues in favor of hybrid networks. “Organizations such as Altran have been exploring how to integrate both Wi-Fi and 5G management stacks into a single integrated and interoperable solution by leveraging Wi-Fi gateways, 5G cores and using subscriber management.”
Is artificial intelligence the future or our present? Matt Jones, Data Science Strategist at Tessella, part of Altran, speaks to Digital Bulletin about data bias and governance, the challenge of using AI at scale and its role as a digital accelerator.
Strong encryption is critical to securing communication between devices, says Jerry Nicolas Ponvelil, director of technology at Altran. Data at rest and in transit should be secured using cryptographic algorithms. This includes the use of key lifecycle management.
“Enterprises are particularly interested in products with proximity tracking. It will help to accelerate remote monitoring for personnel such as operators working in the field and for monitoring their body temperature, location and to ensure they are adhering to social distancing guidelines,” shares Vijay Anand, AVP technology, Altran.
Raghu Kishore Vempati, Director for Technology, Research, and Innovation at Altran, said: “2020 will see some acceleration by organizations for transformation to a microservices-based architecture based on containers, from a service-oriented architecture (SOA). The adoption of Kubernetes as an orchestration platform will hence see a significant rise.”
“For practitioners who would like to get hands-on experience to experiment with the setup of Kubernetes cluster from scratch on hardware without incurring significant cost, Raspberry Pis are a viable solution,” says Raghu Kishore Vempati, director of technology, research, and innovation at Altran.
Naveen Kumar, VP of Technology, comments that networks of sensors could be arranged so meticulously that monitoring no longer becomes an exhaustive concern for medical staff. “The enablement of new use cases which were previously not possible, such as continuous monitoring, treatment adherence, etc., will now be possible,” he says.
