Connected vehicles: Let us make connectivity easy.

Ericsson is helping Vehicle Manufacturers innovate, make car connectivity easy, and manage the complexity for connected cars. Managing the lifecycle and deployment of connected vehicle services is a complex task, but it doesn’t have to be. That’s where Ericsson comes in. As the leader in connectivity, Ericsson is enabling innovation and flexibility in connected vehicle solutions by decoupling the software from the hardware and moving complexity to the cloud.

Ericsson’s Connected Vehicle Cloud connects more than 4 million cars on its platform and offers packages for telematics and cyber security, service innovation for flexible rollout, fleet management for autonomous and non-autonomous fleets, connectivity management for subscription handling, software and device management for over the air updates and C-V2X for safety and improved driver experience use cases.

This year Ericsson will join the IAA Conference in Frankfurt. Our Vice President and Head of Connected Vehicles, Claes Herlitz, will talk about 5G connected vehicles, the self driving car and automated transportation.
