UBIFRANCE to showcase 100 French telecoms innovators at MWC 2014

04.02.2014
For the eighth year running, UBIFRANCE, France’s export-support agency, is organizing the French Pavilion at Mobile World Congress (MWC), which will take place from 24 to 27 February 2014, in Barcelona (Spain). The French Pavilion will showcase 100 businesses, two competitiveness clusters, five regional agencies, and Invest in France Agency.

UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, is organizing a national pavilion at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 trade show, in Barcelona (Spain), one of the world’s foremost events for mobile telecommunications, services and content.

The French Pavilion will be the largest at the 2014 trade fair in terms of surface area and will feature French-based businesses and agencies from sectors including telecoms infrastructures, mobile-telecoms applications, mobile advertising and marketing, mobile games and accessories, as well as engineering and financial services.

The pavilion’s area will consist of three islands in Hall 5 (Booths 5B41, 5B61 and 5B71) and, for the first time, an island in Hall 8 (Booth 8.1D41) called App Planet, which is entirely devoted to new mobile-telecoms applications, and which features 200 businesses every year.

There will be 15 innovative companies gathered under France’s banner in Hall 8, within the App Planet area, including Adxperience, Altheia, Appsfire, Aquafadas, Axway, Capptain, Goodbarber, Madgic, Profil Technology, Rezopep, Smartadserver, Summview, Twinlife and Xtraball.

The French Pavilion will also be hosting several partner regions, including Brittany, Ile-de-France (i.e. Paris and its region), Languedoc-Roussillon, Midi-Pyrenées and Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur, as well as two competitiveness clusters — Systematic Paris Région, from Ile-de-France, and Solutions Communicantes Sécurisées, from Provence (in South-Eastern France). Finally, Invest in France Agency (IFA) will be represented on the French Pavilion: it is the government agency in charge of inward-investment promotion for the whole of France.

In its role as organizer of the French Pavilion, UBIFRANCE is also in the process of setting up B2B meetings between exhibiting French businesses and major telecoms-industry groups such as Telefonica, Vodafone Spain, Singtel and Samsung.

Below is a selection of the must-see innovations to be featured this year on the French Pavilion.

Appsfire

This product detects new mobile applications while acting as a promotional launch pad for iOS and Android, thanks to its innovative tools.

G2J

G2J’s MyEasyVision® makes video-conferencing easily accessible to all members of staff in the client entity. MyEasyVision® is the unique entry point for real-time booking, monitoring and reporting features. This application is available through all web browsers and mobile devices (Android, iOS, etc.), and is compatible with all the technologies currently used by manufacturers and network operators.

Pixerlis

CopSonic, developed by Pixerlis, is the first patented universal technology for mobile payments. It is compatible with most mobile devices on the market and represents the future of secure, hands-free payment systems, explains the company. Using sound waves as a means to exchange secure consumer data, this system is able to turn any telephone into a contactless payment device.

Twinlife

Twinsee, developed by specialist company Twinlife, is a free video-call service based on WebRTC. It can be used to call contacts, friends or family from a tablet, smartphone, Android television or Google Chrome browser on a PC or Mac. Twinsee is the first mobile application to provide a free video-call service in high definition based on the Web RTC standard. It works in peer-to-peer mode on Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G/LTE.

Wysips

The hi-tech solution developed by Wysips has the potential to revolutionize telephone charging through the use of a solar cell which is integrated into the mobile device’s screen, thus preventing the wireless device from ever running out of battery power. Wysips will showcase its technology at the trade show.

Xooloo™

Xooloo™ is a parental-control tool developed by the company of the same name, which uses internet filtering in order to allow children to surf the web safely and securely. It is compatible with Android smartphones and tablet devices using versions 2.3 to 4.2.

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
