HUAWEI AND AUDI JOIN FORCES
Chinese networking supplier Huawei and German car manufacturer Audi Group have announced a new partnership to jointly explore the future of connected car technology.
Huawei have presented new LTE modules that provide Audi’s latest Q7 SUV with the ability to support 2G, 3G and 4G networks, as well as TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE standards.
The firm claimed this will enable data transfers with download speeds approaching 100Mbps. It also said drivers will be given internet-enabled key features that will deliver an “enhanced driving experience”.
Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu said the supplier saw “unlimited opportunities” in connected cars.
“By partnering with industry-leading automobile companies like Audi, Huawei aims to bring the best interconnection services and solutions to the next generation of cars, while actively promoting interaction between cars, smartphones, wearables and people,” he said.
