Ericsson, Microsoft team up on connected vehicle platform integration

By

Ericsson and Microsoft have teamed up in a deal bringing their connected vehicle expertise together.

The deal sees Ericsson building its Connected Vehicle Cloud on top of the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform that is running on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

The two companies say the integrated solution allows automakers to deploy and scale global vehicle services such as fleet management, over-the-air software updates and connected safety services “much easier and faster while reducing costs” - providing flexibility through modular design and multiple deployment options.

Ericsson says its connected vehicle cloud connects more than 4 million vehicles across 180 countries worldwide - approximately 10% of the connected vehicle market - with the platform tailored to fit vehicle manufacturers’ growing demand for scalability and flexibility with the capability of supporting any connected vehicle service.

And the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform (MCVP) empowers automotive companies to accelerate the delivery of safe, comfortable and personalised connected driving experiences, combining cloud infrastructure, edge technology as well as AI and IoT services with a diverse partner ecosystem.

“The Ericsson and Microsoft partnership will deliver a comprehensive connected vehicle platform at scale to the market. Our integrated solutions will help automotive manufacturers accelerate their global connected vehicle solutions and offer a better experience for drivers and passengers,” says Åsa Tamsons, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Area Technologies & New Businesses.

“This is an exciting new offering with great benefits for the automotive industry, leveraging Ericsson and Microsoft’s technology leadership in connectivity and cloud.”

Peggy Johnson, Executive Vice President, Business Development at Microsoft says: “Together with Ericsson, we intend to simplify the development of connected vehicle services to help car makers focus on their customers’ needs and accelerate the delivery of unique, tailor-made driving experiences.”
