Transport. With its sights firmly set on the future, the world leader in rail transport is working on the Train of the Future: a massive collaborative R&D program designed to speed up the development of trains and improve their quality. Its partners on the project include Bull Amesys, which is responsible for an innovative on-board ‘telepresence’ solution.
Telecoms. Telefônica-Vivo, Brazil’s number one telecoms operator, has chosen bullion™ servers from Bull as the basis of its critical Next-Generation Intelligent Network (NGIN) infrastructure. The system, which supports pre-paid mobile services for almost 70 million subscribers, is absolutely vital for Vivo, who are relying on bullion’s performance, availability and scalability.
Software factory. To fully control its installed application base and cutting the cost of ownership, the French Ministry of Defense has turned to Bull to industrialize its information systems design/delivery chain. The key to this is the implementation of SAFR@N, an integrated, standards-based project management, analysis and development platform.
Case study. Colonel Joël Ferry of the French Gendarmerie ¬– a specialist in criminal law as applied to new technologies – highlights the growing importance of digital weapons to fight organized crime and the economic battle being fought under cover by companies and nation States. He stresses the vital need to implement appropriate countermeasures without delay.
Defense. The only secure IT operator for the French Ministry of Defense, DIRISI (the Inter-Forces Networks, Infrastructure and Information Systems Directorate), is drawing on Bull’s IT operations expertise under a framework contract, which enables it to effectively combine agility and expertise while still following the strict rules governing public procurement.
