Leading Telecom Operator, Orange, Partners With Suitable Technologies to Bring Customers Beam+ and Ub-y

October 6, 2014 | Telepresence Options


PALO ALTO, CA, Oct 06, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Suitable Technologies Inc. (R), the company that brings people together with the Beam(R) Smart Presence System (SPS), with its French partner Awabot, today announced a collaborative effort with Orange SA, a global leader in telecommunications operations. The effort brings together Suitable Technologies' Beam+, a smart presence system that makes it possible to see, visit, and stay close to anyone, and Ub-y, an innovative new offering from Orange, that gives customers the power of ubiquity, so they can be everywhere at once without the need for travel. Ub-y will be available at select Orange locations in 2015.

Beam+ combines mobility and video conferencing to enable users a way to speak, see, and move about so they can interact with friends and family in a natural way from anywhere in the world. Beam+ embodies the user with an authentic presence, and immerses the user with reliable low-latency audio and video for natural communication and control.

Orange customers often travel on short-notice to far off locations, taking critical time away from their family and business. Orange will offer Ub-y with this in mind to cut travel time and costs for businesses, and to increase personal time at home. With Ub-y, distance is no longer a barrier with Beam+ and Orange's services.

Ub-y enables users to:

  • Visit people instantly, in real time, at any time -- with no travel time required
  • Easily pilot Beam+ from wherever they are with their computer, and interact naturally
  • Control where they go with Beam+ to experience what's important

Ub-y combines Orange's data confidentiality expertise with Beam+ SPS technology to fulfill the need for shared awareness by embodying the user with an authentic presence for immersive communication. Beam+ is easy to install and automatically connects customers to the best available Wi-Fi or 4G network. Customers can operate the system through their Mac OSX or Windows computer. Beam+ includes two cameras -- one for wide-angled views and one for dedicated navigation -- a microphone array and speaker integrated into the display, and a battery life that supports two hours of continuous use.

"The collaboration of Orange and Suitable Technologies marks an important step forward in the availability of Smart Presence Systems for consumers," said Scott Hassan, CEO, Suitable Technologies. "We're happy to play a part in making Ub-y and Beam+ a reality for Orange customers."
