أمستردام، 19 يونيو 2017 – تعمل شركة جيمالتو، الرائدة على مستوى العالم في مجال الأمن الرقمي (والمسجلة في بورصة يورونيكست تحت الرمز NL0000400653 GTO)، على تمكين الاتصال الآمن والموثوق لمنصة أقفال دسمان الذكية الجديدة. إذ يتضمن الحل الجديد من الشركة العالمية لتصنيع الأقفال والخزائن الذكية وحدات التعريف الآلي (MIM) والعناصر الآمنة Secure Elements (SE) من شركة جيمالتو، بما يعمل على تمكين المستخدمين من قفل أبوابهم وإلغاء قفلها باستخدام هواتفهم الذكية أو إنشاء سلاسل مفاتيح رقمية لعدة أقفال.http://hugin.info/159293/R/2113878/804195.jpg

يوفر الحل مستويات أعلى من الأمان مقارنة بالأقفال التقليدية. ويمكن استخدام تطبيق الهاتف الجوال لإنشاء مفاتيح افتراضية احتياطية أو مؤقتة عن بعد كما يمكنه تبسيط خدمات الإقامة المشتركة.

على سبيل المثال، يمكنه تتبع ومراقبة من قام بإلغاء قفل الباب مؤخراً. كما يرسل التطبيق إخطارات فورية في حالة فتح الباب عنوة ويمكنه تفعيل الإنذار المدمج في القفل بشكل تلقائي.

هذا ويرجح أن يتسع نطاق سوق الأقفال الذكية بشكل سريع على مدار السنوات القليلة القادمة. وبحسب شركة Transparency Market Research، تشير التقديرات إلى أن معدل النمو السنوي المركب لهذه السوق سيصل إلى 18.3%, مما يؤدي إلى زيادة كبيرة في القيمة السوقية، من 226.7 مليون دولار أمريكي في عام 2016 إلى 1.01 مليار دولار أمريكي بحلول عام 2024. جدير بالذكر أن منطقة آسيا باسيفيك تتجه بسرعة لكي تكون سوقاً هاماً لصناعة الأقفال الذكية مدفوعة في ذلك بارتفاع مستويات المعيشة وزيادة الوعي بشأن الأمن والسلامة البدنية.

وفي معرض تعليقه على هذه المناسبة قال زو زيلينج، الرئيس التنفيذي لشركة دسمان، “إن الأمن يأتي في جوهر أي تقنية ذكية مبتكرة ولا يزال يمثل أهمية بالنسبة لنا” وأضاف “نبحث باستمرار عن تقنية تكميلية تعزز من أمن منتجاتنا وخدماتنا، وشركة جيمالتو لديها كتالوج من الحلول والخبرات نحتاجه لأقفالنا الذكية الجديدة. كما أن قدرتها على توفير حلول أمنية متكاملة إلى جانب خارطة طريق لاتصالات إنترنت الأشياء المستقبلية المعززة، مثل LTE Cat NB-IoT، جذبت انتباهنا على الفور”.

وفي هذا الصدد أيضاً، قالت سوزان تونغ لي، نائب الرئيس الأول لخدمات الجوال وإنترنت الأشياء لمنطقة الصين الكبرى وكوريا لدى شركة جيمالتو، “يتحول العالم إلى تبني التقنيات الرقمية بسرعة غير مسبوقة، حيث ظهرت المنازل الذكية بسرعة باعتبارها حجر الزاوية الجديد في حياة متصلة” وأضافت “نتوقع أن تصبح الأقفال الذكية المتصلة جزءاً طبيعياً من الحياة اليومية للناس في المستقبل القريب. كما أن مجموعتنا المتكاملة من حلول وخدمات إنترنت الأشياء الآمنة تساعد شركات التصنيع على تحقيق أعلى مستويات الثقة للمستهلكين، وهو أمر بالغ الأهمية لخدمات مثل المفاتيح الافتراضية”.

Dar urges FBR to meet tax collection target

Finance Minister Senator Mohammad

Ishaq Dar Sunday urged the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to take

all necessary measures to meet the tax collection target for the

current fiscal year (2016-17).

Chairing a meeting here at the Ministry of Finance on matters

related to the FBR, the minister said that the prudent policies of

the present government and the efforts of the Board had resulted in

60% growth in tax revenue collection between FY 2012-2013 and

FY 2015-2016.

He assured his full support to the FBR for achieving the

revenue targets for FY 2017-18, according to a Finance Ministry

press statement.

Dar appreciated the contributions of FBR officials in the

preparation of the budget for FY 2017-18, which had recently been

passed by the Parliament.

He expressed the confidence that the measures announced in the

budget for FY 2017-18 would enhance the welfare and prosperity of

the general public, and enable Pakistan to achieve higher,

sustainable and inclusive economic growth.

Earlier, the FBR chairman updated the minister on the

latest status of tax collection during FY 2016-17.

He said all efforts were being made to attain the

collection target for the current fiscal year while a comprehensive

strategy was being finalized for tax collection in FY 2017-18, which

would be presented to the finance minister in due course.

Among others, the meeting was attended by Special Assistant to

the Prime Minister on Revenue Haroon Akhtar Khan, Finance Secretary,

Learning Chinese Trending in Pakistan Amid Deepening Ties With China

ISLAMABAD � China is investing billions of dollars in extensive roads, railways, special industrial zones and energy infrastructure in Pakistan. The massive collaboration dubbed the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, or CPEC, is generating interest among Pakistani students and professionals to learn Mandarin.

Li Xue Mei teaches compulsory Mandarin lessons to around 300 students ranging from grade five to middle school. She is one of the Chinese instructors at the private Roots millennium schools, where more than 7,000 children are learning the language.

They are good and they are very excited to learn Chinese, she said.

She adds that writing Chinese language characters is challenging for her students, but they quickly master it. The instructor underscores the urgency of learning Mandarin.

I think they need to learn more Chinese to learn Chinese culture and they can communicate more and they can cooperate better with Chinese people and they can work better, she said.

China’s investment of around $60 billion under CPEC collaboration is expected to bring around 20,000 Chinese to Pakistan.

A large number of them have already moved to the country, mostly running private businesses.

Public and private institutions are establishing links with Chinese counterparts to promote exchanges in higher education and provide research opportunities on both sides of the border.

Beijing regards CPEC as a pilot flagship project of its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which is a massive trade and connectivity venture aimed at linking China to the rest of Asia, Africa and Europe through both land and maritime routes.

While both countries have traditionally enjoyed close political and defense ties, officials hope the corridor will further cement relations and bring economic prosperity to Pakistan.

History bears testimony to the fact that this great friendship has stood the test of time. But in the past four years this relationship has crossed new thresholds and culminated in the establishment of CPEC, said Pakistani Foreign Policy Advisor Sartaj Aziz.

The nearly 3,000-kilometer long corridor China is building in Pakistan will allow its trade convoys to travel along the Karakoram Highway, snaking past snow-capped ranges, down to the deep-water Pakistani port of Gwadar. The freight will then be placed on ships bound for markets in Africa, the Middle East and Europe.
