At Ericsson, we strive to connect everyone, wherever they may be. Because by being connected, people can take part in the emerging global collaboration that is the Networked Society -" a society in which every person and every industry is empowered to reach their full potential.
Our services, software and infrastructure - especially in mobility, broadband and the cloud - are enabling the communications industry and other sectors to do better business, increase efficiency, improve their users' experience and capture new opportunities.
By enabling the Networked Society, we make a real difference to people's lives, and the world we live in.
The Networked Society is changing the way we move through the world. New services are making transport safer, greener and faster. Leading this transformation towards an intelligent transport system are mobile communications and business support solutions that are integrated with the travelers, the goods, the vehicles and the physical transport infrastructures as things get from point A to point B.
Congested roadways, accidents and unsustainable vehicle emissions demand solutions – and intelligent transport systems promise a better way. For businesses and governments, a focus on multi-modality and “door-to-door” thinking that uses a combination of transport modes will be an important strategy. As individuals, we expect services to make our travel experience efficient, safe and pleasant. To minimize the feeling of "lost time," we look to enjoy entertainment and/or work in the same way as we do at home or at the office. Availability of information to plan, book and pay for a trip or to access entertainment or work-related information is a key to user satisfaction.
Most vehicles are driven in a virtual fog, with little or no access to the latest available data. But when vehicles can communicate with other vehicles, transport-related service providers and transportation authorities, the fog lifts. Drivers can join the cloud, gaining infotainment services, vehicle diagnostics or travel planning support. Because when cars, buses and trucks are part of the intelligent transport system, the opportunities for innovation are limitless. New ways to manage traffic. Innovative charging models for parking, road use and rush hour driving. Comprehensive fleet tracking. Alerts about congestion, roadwork and accidents. These are just some benefits already being felt.
Information and convenience empower commuters. Especially those that rely on public transport systems. Tools to plan routes, ubiquitous ticketing options, and real-time insight into delays or road closures can delight commuters. Keeping commuters in the know streamlines public transport systems to help them run more smoothly. Integrated mobile communications also enables a new layer of security, better protecting all stakeholders
The automotive industry is an increasingly global business, and connecting vehicles demands a new, profitable and innovative business model that will leverage the potential of the automotive ecosystem with other connected industries.
Ericsson’s Connected Vehicle Cloud will continue to evolve as the single point of connection for vehicles in this evolving eco-system.
Smartphones changed how consumers interact with the world around them. Powered by the cloud, the connected car promises to extend this interactive dynamic to drivers and passengers on the road.
Our Connected Vehicle Cloud delivers significant opportunity for stakeholders in the automotive ecosystem to reach drivers and passengers in new ways. It is the robust platform that enables application developers, government organizations, businesses, and automotive manufacturers to reach drivers and passengers with services and information. All to transform the in-car experience for drivers and enable the automotive OEM to manage the customer experience, improve product quality and pursue new after market opportunities around the bend.
Part of Ericsson’s Transport and Automotive offerings, Connected Vehicle Cloud is based on the Ericsson Service Enablement Platform and targets the global automotive industry´s existing and future demands for scalability, security and flexibility in the provisioning of connected car services to drivers and passengers.
Connected Vehicle Cloud leverages Ericsson’s M2M service enablement capabilities and can be deployed on standard cloud infrastructures. It can be thoroughly integrated in core business processes such as customer relationship management and service management by Ericsson Consulting and Systems Integration Services and can be efficiently operated by Ericsson Managed Services.
