Sign up for yALPA 002 !

After a first meeting on January 29th, the second is planned for July 2th at Challes-les-Eaux.

 
Theme: HSBB in the Alps

Departments concerned: 38; 73; 74 and 01 (South Jura) with a focus on tourist areas (ski resorts, hotels).

 
Observation:

Broadband needs are exploding with the advent of "Over The Top" (OTT) networks and the strong growth of services such as Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, OCS, MyCanal...
Initial observations between the 2017 and 2018 Christmas holidays show a +60% increase in the throughput consumed in hotels and hotel residences. For these establishments, connections in Mbs will soon no longer be enough and requests in 1, 2, 3 or even 4 Gbs are beginning to arrive.

 
Work in synergy:

From now on, it is essential for telecom and Internet operators to organise themselves in order to be able to respond effectively to this need, which was yesterday emerging and is now very present.
This is the objective of yALPA! We must encourage the actors of Very High Speed deployment to meet and get to know each other better in order to consider future collaborations rather than planning, each on its own, investments in the same places.
The local DSPs (38, 73 and 74) do part of the work, but simply changing departments is complicated. Let us bet that by exchanging informally, a collective intelligence will make it possible to accelerate the arrival of really Very High Speed offers in the Alps (resorts but also valleys and plains).
It is understood that the results of these initial yALPA discussions will not have immediate effect. However, in the more or less short term, the problems currently encountered in terms of HSBB in tourist areas can be solved.

 
Morning program (9:00 am - 12:00 pm):
  • welcome, coffee, pastries
  • round table discussion: presentation of each participant
  • Transalpinet presentation (study by Rezopole)
  • room for improvement:
    • common carto tool.... Should we start where we wait another 10 years?
    • new backbone offers from external operators
    • territories without POPs
 
Registrations:

Practical informations:

See you on July 2nd at 9:00 am at Hub des Alpes (salle Altitude 193) - 37 avenue des Massettes, 73190 Challes-les-Eaux.

 

 

 

 

IT: 4.2% growth expected in 2019

on Thursday, 20 June 2019 Posted in Archives Rezopole, Archives GrenoblIX, Archives LyonIX

IT: 4.2% growth expected in 2019

Syntec Numérique has revised upwards the growth forecasts for the IT sector in France with a 4.2% increase in 2019. The Chamber of Trade Unions was expecting an increase of 3.9% for the current year. In 2018, growth averaged 4.1% for the sector as a whole: digital consulting and services companies (ESN / ex-SSII), software publishers and technology consulting specialists.

 

79% of companies in the IT sector plan to increase their turnover in 2019.

With a growth rate of 3.3%, equivalent to that of 2018, 76% of NSEs expect their revenues to increase in 2019. They will benefit from high value-added services on projects that their customers engage in cybersecurity, cognitive systems, as well as on Cloud offerings. This development will be driven by the banking/insurance, energy and water suppliers (utilities) and business services sectors.

They are also 76% to expect an increase in their turnover this year from software publishers. This represents a growth of 5.8% in their market in France in 2019, which is higher than in 2018 (+5.3%). Software-as-a-service will represent 25% of the software publishing market, Syntec Numérique predicts. It is expected to reach €3.4 billion this year.

The most optimistic are the technology consulting players, since 95% of them expect their turnover to increase. However, Syntec Digital expects growth of 5.2%, slightly lower than last year (5.5%). This will be driven by process engineering and IoT services, as well as the transformation of industrial customers' business models.

 

In 2018, ESNs generated 61% of revenue in the IT market, while software publishers accounted for 22% and technology consulting for 17%.

A look back at CCIAL 2019

on Wednesday, 19 June 2019 Posted in Archives Rezopole, Archives LyonIX

A look back at CCIAL 2019

On June 13, Rezopole participated in the Cybersecurity Inter-Associations Symposium in Lyon. Organized by Club 27001 Lyon, this Cybersecurity and New Technologies event brought together associations and national institutions with a focus on the participation of the IT Department, CISO and DPO functions.

 

The first part of the morning was devoted to a round table discussion with associations such as Rezopole, whose presence was explained by its President, Philippe Duby.

The Internet now has a very important place in the proper functioning of the Information System, especially when it is connected to Cloud platforms: it can be subject to outages (loss of availability), DNS or DDOS attacks (loss of integrity) or traffic usurpation (loss of confidentiality).

Rezopole protects itself from these problems by using its Internet marketplaces (LyonIX & GrenoblIX with ports up to 100 Gbps) and its BGP network expertise (24/7 Managed Services, BGP consulting / assistance / training).

Peering and central DCs: essential?

on Friday, 14 June 2019 Posted in Archives Rezopole, Archives GrenoblIX, Archives LyonIX

Peering and central DCs: essential?

Central data centres are connectivity relays, real marketplaces. They bring together almost all the players in the digital value chain. The challenge is therefore to know how to identify them, to be able to recognize them in order to open a PoP (Point Of Presence).

 

There are three types of data centers: hyperscale, edge and core. Usually organized in a loop, each one has a very specific role in the organization of an IT architecture. It is very common to see players hosting their application in a hyperscale, deploying their IT in an edge and ensuring an optimized network path by creating peering links in a core.

 

Central DCs have a very specific importance and are therefore becoming real performance levers that determine many infrastructure choices.

But how to identify them? The easiest way is to consult the referencing databases of network players such as PEERING DB and to search for the data centre with the largest number of members. If they have differentiating elements such as the number of members and network ports available, cushioned network equipment or an extremely wide choice of actors, it is in peering that their main attraction lies.

 

In a central DC everyone is on an equal footing: everyone shares data via a physical connection from point A to point B. Regardless of the nature of the interconnection: peering, direct interconnection or transit, I know that everyone is within cable distance of my rack. I will therefore benefit from clustering effect. And the effect is virtuous, the more actors a central data center brings together, the more interconnection there is, the cheaper it is.

 

Peering is a strong trend that is becoming essential. A study published by Arcep in 2017 related to traffic measurement among ISPs in France indicates that the data exchanged on the territory are distributed in this way: 50% for transit, 46% for private peering and 4% for public peering. The same ratios were observed by the Journal du Net in one of its central data centers. The share of transit decreases very significantly between 2017 and 2018. Public peering is growing and private peering is increasing very significantly. Three main consequences follow from this dynamic: content players will get as close as possible to end customers by bypassing hosters and forwarders in the short and medium term, freight forwarders seeing their business decline will try to recover the margins they are losing on the CDN link, and finally ISPs will try to get closer to the end customer themselves by including content in their offers.

 

Several good practices deserve to be shared to move to live traffic. First, start with the application. Before choosing where to host your IT, it is necessary to consider the nature of the IT. Depending on the answer, you have to organize your architecture. The challenge is to create network accesses that facilitate the user experience and reduce costs. Depending on their priority and the level of security required, the applications will therefore be divided between core, edge and hyperscale.

Secondly, how to bring the user closer to these applications? The alternative is quite simple: either use peering or direct interconnections, or put the application locally in its data center and set up a private network link to the end user.

 

The meaning of the story seems to be moving towards a transformation of the IT agent into a buyer. IT managers are now able to organize these outsourcing choices in these three types of data centers. Business choices therefore become business choices.

The first AMEL finalized in Côte d

on Friday, 07 June 2019 Posted in Archives Rezopole, Archives GrenoblIX, Archives LyonIX

The first AMEL finalized in Côte d

The Calls for Demonstrations of Local Commitments announced in December 2017 at the National Territories Conference were then presented by the authorities as "the possibility for local authorities to benefit from the deployment or extension of very high speed networks financed by operators' own funds".

 

Three of these AMELs had received a favourable opinion from the Arcep last March and an authorisation from the government. The first of these systems was finally the subject of an agreement signed on Monday between the operator Altitude Infrastructure and the Conseil départemental de la Côte-d'Or. By the end of 2022, the end of this agreement, 57,000 households will be connected by Altitude Infrastructure, including approximately 8,000 before the end of 2020. This AMEL will complement the Public Initiative Network set up by the Department to obtain 100% FttH coverage in the Côte d'Or.

 

Two other Calls for Demonstration of Local Commitments, in Lot-et-Garonne and in three departments of the South-PACA region operated by Orange and SFR, should follow the same path as the government announced last March. This system should "provide all French people in metropolitan France and overseas with a minimum speed of 30Mbits/s by the end of 2022" in accordance with the objectives set out in the France THD plan.

THD radio: Arcep public consultation

on Friday, 07 June 2019 Posted in Archives Rezopole, Archives GrenoblIX, Archives LyonIX

THD radio: Arcep public consultation

As part of the 5G frequency allocation, scheduled for autumn 2019, the Arcep is continuing its work to free the 3.5 GHz band. This band has been made available to digital development players to deploy Very High Speed Radio networks. In order to identify the departments in which THD radio networks are still being considered, the Arcep is launching a public consultation.

 

To meet the territories' HSBB connectivity needs in the context of the France Very High Speed Plan, Arcep opened a window in December 2017 for the deployment of HSBB radio networks in the 3.4 - 3.8 GHz band. In parallel, the government and the Arcep have established to allocate new 5G frequencies in order to be launched in 2020. The Regulatory Authority must therefore allocate the 3.4 - 3.8 GHz band for the commercial deployment of 5G mobile networks.

 

At the end of 2018, Arcep planned to submit the applications to the THD radio counter before the end of March 2019. However, in order to free as many frequencies as possible for 5G while maintaining frequencies for THD radio networks, Arcep plans to maintain the counter for departments in which advanced projects exist. The opening of the window for these projects could be extended beyond 31 December 2019.

 

It is now up to Arcep to determine the territories where THD radio networks should be deployed. The purpose of this public consultation is to enable the stakeholders concerned to inform the Regulatory Authority of their project before 30 June 2019.

 

At the end of this consultation and taking into account the responses, the Arcep will modify the frequency allocation modalities for radio HSBB in order to integrate these calendar changes.

A toll for Internet giants

on Wednesday, 29 May 2019 Posted in Archives Rezopole, Archives GrenoblIX, Archives LyonIX

A toll for Internet giants

France's leading Internet service providers ranked it as one of the largest consumers of bandwidth a year ago. These groups, such as Google, Netflix, Akamai, Facebook, take advantage of the tips of French operators without paying their fair share.

The French Telecoms Federation (FFT) and its president are therefore calling for "more equity". In an interview with Le Figaro, Arthur Dreyfuss explains that "80% of the taxes paid in France by digital players are paid by French telecom operators. At certain times of the day, 80% of telecom network traffic is due to YouTube, Netflix, Amazon and Facebook".

Under these conditions, the FFT proposes to introduce a toll, i.e. to charge for access to the networks of French operators. As these pipes are extremely profitable for American giants, access providers are wondering when they will participate in financing the infrastructure. Indeed, ISPs must constantly invest in expanding and improving their networks. These are therefore heavy financing for which the Internet giants participate little or not at all.

This proposal does not come about by chance since the government wants to introduce a tax on the advertising activities of the largest digital companies. It should be implemented very quickly since it has just been voted by the Senate.

Leap in IT job offers

on Wednesday, 29 May 2019 Posted in Archives Rezopole, Archives GrenoblIX, Archives LyonIX

Leap in IT job offers

This month, the recruitment firm Robert Walters published a study on job offers in the digital sector in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. The market continues to grow with a 19% increase in ads for IT executives in April 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.

A dynamic that benefits network engineers / architects since the number of proposals increased by 43% last month. "With the rise of the Cloud, the role of network experts and architects becomes strategic [...] Guarantors of design, network quality and security, they are a major asset, even for companies that have outsourced their infrastructures" comments the manager of the IT and digital division of Robert Walters' Lyon office, Edouard Trackoen.

According to him, this is even more true for companies with many sites and wishing to develop an SD-WAN project. Indeed, he adds "Beyond technical expertise, companies will welcome candidates who are also able to make the link with business issues". According to this logic, the proportion of CIOs with a CTO / Infrastructure Director course would have increased at the expense of application managers.

A business model for 5G

on Thursday, 23 May 2019 Posted in Archives Rezopole, Archives GrenoblIX, Archives LyonIX

A business model for 5G

During the Viva Tech exhibition, Cisco explains to the Digital Factory the "5G rural first" project carried out in the United Kingdom. Led by the American company, this consortium of 29 players aims to find a business model to deploy 5G in rural areas and enable operators to make it profitable.

"To start investing in 5G, it is not possible to rely on the consumer demand of the general public, a large part of which is connected in 4G. 5G investments are very important and people are not willing to pay more for their subscriptions", says Cisco's director of innovation, Guillaume de Saint Marc. It has to be said that we must therefore turn to BtoB and rely on the digitalization of the various industrial sectors.

The principle is to multiply the pilots and experiments with 5G, 4G or WiFi. To this end, four industrial sectors, developed outside cities, were explored: AgriTech, transport, energy and tourism.

The fields of energy and tourism have been explored in the north of Scotland. On the tourism side, ferries were connected throughout their journeys, allowing connectivity to all passengers and a constant link between ferries and captains.

On the energy side, this territory has three offshore wind farms. It is necessary to connect them in order to "anticipate and understand the production level at a given moment and be able to absorb the energy produced by these wind turbines in real time", explains Guillaume de Saint Marc.

In the agricultural sector, the start-up Afimilk offers connected collars to monitor the temperature, rumination cycle, heart rate of cows...

In parallel, a project to identify soil quality by drone was carried out. "This is not new, but 5G is accelerating the deployment of these technologies", said Cisco's Director of Innovation.

But that's not all, since there are many uses: connect a salmon farm, monitor the water in some schools to detect legionella, test broadcast via 5G.  The aim is always to minimize the cost of its development by multiplying these uses.

5G auctions: Government kick-off

on Monday, 20 May 2019 Posted in Archives Rezopole, Archives GrenoblIX, Archives LyonIX

5G auctions: Government kick-off

The auction framework for obtaining 5G frequencies has just been formalised by the Government. This framework letter, signed by the Minister for Cohesion of the Territories and the Secretary of State to the Minister of Economy, should enable Arcep to develop the process.


This letter defines in particular the constraints that will weigh on the winning operators. On the one hand, on the wallet side: it is a question of finding a "balance" between making the State's frequency assets grow and preserving the operators' capacity to invest in infrastructure. While both departments agree that "valuation should leave room for network development", they ask that "price is a substantial criterion for allocations".

On the other hand, on the coverage side: the Government warns that "the commercial service will have to be launched from 2020 to cover several cities" in return for the 5G licences awarded.

However, 5G deployment obligations will not be as stringent as those imposed to extend 4G last year throughout the country.


As for companies, the Arcep will have to "ensure that the operators who will benefit from authorisation will enable vertical players to apply for and benefit from 5G services under financial and operational conditions adapted to their needs, including in sparsely populated areas of the territory".

The Government has set the bar high by asking for the best of both worlds. It remains for the Arcep to include all this in the specifications of the 5G auctions scheduled for next autumn.
