Paris, France (SPX) Jun 22, 2007
Vizada (formerly France Telecom Mobile Satellite Communications) launches SkyFile Access, a simple, secure and cost-effective solution enabling users of Inmarsat mobile satellite terminals to optimize data transfer. On land or at sea, SkyFile Access provides a direct, seamless Internet connection for end-users operating in areas with limited access to terrestrial telecoms infrastructure.

Vizada is a leading provider of mobile satellite communications solutions for customers based in areas with limited terrestrial telecoms infrastructure.

SkyFile Access is available on all Inmarsat terminals (BGAN, RBGAN, Fleet, Mini-M, GAN, A, B, M), and provides access to the following tools and applications:

+ File sharing: free-of-charge FTP space, public or private, to store or exchange heavy data files.

+ Personal mailbox and address: Vizada hosts the user's mailbox if required and provides an individual email address.

+ Webmail: emails can be sent from the office on land, from home, an Internet cafe, or from any standard Internet access point.

+ Internet access: a direct, seamless connection to the Internet from the mobile satellite terminal provides access to the user's corporate network.

+ Enhanced security: Integrated anti-virus and anti-spam filters.

+ Group management: Direct group management for email and FTP accounts via a remote administration interface.

In addition, the service is not subject to access or monthly fees, meaning that customers only pay for the airtime.

SkyFile Access completes the SkyFile family of Internet-based tools and applications for mobile satellite terminals, enabling end-users to create a virtual office environment in remote locations. Key solutions in this family include SkyFile Mail, developed by Vizada to facilitate emailing through compression of large files, crash recovery, remote control and least cost routing (ISDN/MPDS). 6,000 end-users currently benefit from SkyFile Mail's features.

In addition, SkyFile Video is a mobile editing application enabling users of mobile satellite terminals to cut, compress and transfer clips filmed with a video camera.

Bringing Mobile Cellular Phones To The Skyways
Le Bourget, France (AFP) Jun 22, 2007
One of the last telephone-free environments on the planet, the airplane, is about to be connected, allowing travellers to make mobile phone calls at high altitude. Requests to switch off cell phones and fasten seatbelts are a familiar part of the takeoff routine for airline passengers, but a European company has found a way to make dialling safe and link up people from above the clouds.
