Ericsson inks five-year connected vehicle deal with Volvo Cars Featured

By

Ericsson has been selected by the Volvo Car Group to provide its industrialised Connected Vehicle Cloud platform, to further enable its digital vehicle services in more than 120 markets worldwide for the next five years.

The deal with Ericsson comes as Volvo Cars, like other major players in the automotive industry, is increasing focus on securing high-quality connected-vehicle services as digitisation increases the importance of software services.

Ericsson says the services will also benefit from the increased speed, low-latency and capacity for mission critical applications, such as autonomous driving, that commercial 5G networks will enable.

Delivered via several geographically distributed centres, the platform takes full account of legal, security, and privacy obligations on a global scale – such as compliance with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation.

According to Ericsson, with digital services increasingly becoming a differentiation factor for automotive consumers, the need for a secure and dependable service provision infrastructure is critical to provide quality of service at scale.

"This is what the Ericsson Connected Vehicle Cloud delivers – meeting Volvo Cars’ high services and applications availability and stability expectations, and allowing Volvo Cars to focus on the value creation of connected vehicle digital customer experiences as a differentiator,” Ericsson said.  

Åsa Tamsons, head of Business Area Technologies & New Businesses, Ericsson, said: “Ericsson is providing a highly scalable and global platform for connected services to Volvo Cars. By removing complexity in areas such as data legislation and storage management, and improving services latency, our platform enhances the overall user experience of Volvo Cars’ connected services.

“Our Ericsson Connected Vehicle Cloud platform will result in rapid innovation and the faster launch of new services to the benefit of Volvo Cars’ partners and customers. The new platform enables the latest development in telematics, infotainment, navigation, automation, and fleet management.”
