By 2025, all new vehicles will be connected, requiring fast internet, artificial intelligence (AI) and big data analytics to deliver services such as HD mapping, intelligent driving and more. The potential economic impact of this shift is enormous, as is the opportunity for MNOs. However, today’s network is not optimized to support the data needs of the connected vehicle services promise. The AECC is working to tackle this impending data challenge with PoCs designed to help meet growing data demands.

About the “Coordinating the Connected Car and Network Edge to Avoid Breaking the Internet” Webinar

Webinar attendees will hear from knowledgeable, industry-renowned speakers, including:

Kurt Dusterhoff – SBD Automotive Consulting Manager (Moderator)

Roger Berg – AECC Communications Vice Chair, Vice President of DENSO’s North American Research and Development Group (Presenter)

Christer Boberg – AECC Secretary, Director of Ericsson Group Strategy (Presenter)

Panelists Will Discuss:

How OEMs, MNOs, Cloud and App providers can take advantage of the connected vehicle services market opportunity

What data requirements are needed to deliver on the connected vehicle services promise

Why PoC opportunities will enable companies to lead and shape the success of this evolving connected vehicle services industry
