ZARIOT & Teragence streamline and enhance your IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) market is developing rapidly, with new solutions rolling out across the globe daily. Each with the potential to improve our lives and make our world more efficient. As a result, IoT now plays a vital role across all industries and all regions. However, an IoT solution is only as good as its connectivity. Failure to ensure proper connectivity can lead to increased cost and significant deployment delays.

At ZARIOT, we already invest heavily in our connectivity partnerships, ensuring that multiple operators are available to our customers devices wherever they may be globally. However, our latest partnership with Teragence transforms testing and assuring connectivity from an expensive, time-consuming, on-site deployment activity, to a quick and easy planning activity. Saving you time and money.

Whether you’re a water company planning smart meters to monitor water levels and flows, or a smart city solutions provider with plans to monitor traffic levels in a neighbourhood. Our joint solution can ensure you optimise the placement of your sensors for the best performing connectivity, real-time monitoring, and effortless troubleshooting.

ZARIOT are proud to work with Teragence and welcome them to our ecosystem of partners. Contact us to understand how the community can provide the flexibility and security for you to create your ideal IoT solution.

New Threat Intelligence Report Exposes the Impact of Generative AI on Remote Identity Verification

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–iProov, the leading provider of science-based biometric identity solutions, today launched The iProov Threat Intelligence Report 2024: The Impact of Generative AI on Remote Identity Verification. iProov’s report examines the remote identity verification threat landscape, providing first-hand insights into the anatomy of a digital injection attack and exposing bad actor methodologies, threat trends, and impacts. The report is created using data and expert analysis by the iProov Security Operations Center (iSOC).

“Generative AI has provided a huge boost to threat actors’ productivity levels: these tools are relatively low cost, easily accessed, and can be used to create highly convincing synthesized media such as face swaps or other forms of deepfakes that can easily fool the human eye as well as less advanced biometric solutions. This only serves to heighten the need for highly secure remote identity verification,” says Andrew Newell, Chief Scientific Officer, iProov.

Vonage and Verizon to collaborate on Advanced Network APIs

Ericsson-owned Vonage and US communications service provider Verizon have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) outlining their intention to introduce Verizon network Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to the Vonage platform that will enable the developer community to access network services and capabilities. They will also collaborate on developing new network APIs for developers globally.

Network APIs are key to Ericsson and Vonage’s strategic goal of exposing the full programmable and intelligent potential of 5G and future next-generation networks by giving developers the tools to innovate, enrich applications, and create new advanced use cases for enterprises and their customers.

Exposing the network capabilities as APIs aims to deliver benefits to ecosystem partners – developers, enterprises and communication service providers – by capitalizing on network capabilities as well as potentially creating as-yet-unknown applications that can transform how businesses engage with customers.

Seckin Arikan, Head of Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) and Global Network Platform (GNP) Sales, Vonage, says: “Vonage’s collaboration with Verizon will represent another key milestone in the execution of Ericsson’s strategy to create a global network platform business by enabling the company to offer network APIs in the U.S. market.”

He adds: “With a mature platform in place, Vonage is uniquely positioned to aggregate Verizon APIs into an intuitive and consumable format that can be readily adopted by developers. Together with frontrunner operators such as Verizon, Vonage is excited to bring new, next generation network APIs to market.”


Telefónica: a decade as a leader in climate management according to the CDP

Telefónica has been recognised today, and for the tenth consecutive year, as a global leader in transparency in performance for its action against climate change, as part of the ‘A List’ prepared by CDP, a non-profit organisation whose report is considered the “gold standard for corporate environmental transparency”.

In this report, CDP has assessed how Telefónica approaches its commitment to the planet, decoupling its growth from its environmental footprint by having reduced CO2 emissions in its operations (scopes 1 and 2) by more than 80%, through the introduction of more efficient technologies, as well as the use of renewable energies in 100% of its facilities in Europe, Brazil, Chile and Peru. In addition, the company is working to be a Zero Waste company by 2030 through design and purchasing with circular criteria, reuse and recycling.

Elena Valderrábano, Global Chief of Sustainability (ESG) at Telefónica, said: “Being on the CDP A List for a decade demonstrates the strength of our environmental commitment and encourages us to continue aligning our business model with the most ambitious scientific climate recommendations. At Telefónica, climate change management is part of the company’s strategy to build a greener future through digitalisation. Our Climate Action Plan is the compass that guides everything we do towards zero net emissions”.
