Early 2017, representatives from Ericsson, Toyota and a few other founding companies informally met during the Barcelona Mobile World Congress. Toyota expressed a need for a global community to develop a technical framework on handling the high-volume data spawned by connected cars in the future. From Ericsson’s perspective, our entire business is about connectivity, so we were keenly interested. In our experience, it's very important that the use cases for a new emerging business have adequate support by the networks. We see a unique opportunity for AECC members – such as Toyota being one of the largest vehicle manufacturers, and other industry stakeholders – be the ones forming the next-generation communication systems for connected vehicles. Ericsson’s collaboration with AECC will specifically support the mobile network operators and help them to understand how they should configure and deploy their networks to support use cases for connected cars and other vehicles.
