M2M Solution’s HomeBox drives your home into the 21st century

M2M Solution, a specialist in the integration of machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, will demonstrate its HomeBox gateway for the consumer market at Mobile World Congress, to be held in Barcelona from 15 to 18 February 2010. The HomeBox system incorporates accessories for both security and home automation.
Olivier Courtade, CEO of M2M Solution, says, “We are proud to announce our new MyHome solution and our HomeBox. More than just a launch, this is a genuine innovation brought to the market. Our new solution has already been tested by several telecoms operators, who should soon be offering new services to their customers in terms of home security, automation and multimedia.”

M2M Solution’s HomeBox is a complete Plug-and-Play home gateway that is interconnected to a wide range of accessories in respect of both security (camera, door/window opening sensor, motion sensor, remote control or smoke detector) and domotics (power plug relay, window shutter control and heating control). M2M Solution will soon add energy-management accessories (monitoring of electricity, water and gas usage) to its HomeBox, which has been developed over many years of R&D.

M2M Solution uses a white-label approach to supply all of the elements required to bring the HomeBox to the marketplace, including hardware, SIM card, server infrastructure, interactive voice response, mobile and web applications, back and front Office HMI, and billing system. The introduction of HomeBox will enable mobile network and service operators to benefit from new sources of revenue. It is also a strategic solution for a market that is constantly looking for new products and services able to provide differentiation and to drive growth.

A first commercial launch of the HomeBox has already been planned by Myxyty, the French specialist in smart home systems, which will offer this new solution as a complement to its leading MyAlert range of home-security solutions.

M2M Solution’s HomeBox provides a range of benefits, including a real-time alert system (SMS, MMS, email, voice call or fax); the ability to control the system from any mobile phone, PC or Mac; and, also, visualisation of the home via a camera integrated into the HomeBox or additional cameras. Besides, M2M Solution’s HomeBox ensures uninterrupted service operation in case of power outage or internet connection failure – the HomeBox features a back-up battery as well as a back-up GSM-GPRS connection.

During Mobile World Congress, M2M Solution will carry out a series of demonstrations on the booth of its partner, Texas Instruments (Stand 8A84).

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...
