Until now, the automotive industry has looked at the vehicle’s wireless interfaces in a somewhat simplistic way: Wi-Fi connects the smart phone to the car, V2X is for safety, and 4G/5G is used for everything else. In this talk, we will prove with hard data from real-world deployments that our industry can do a lot more with the communications hardware already installed in the connect vehicle. With intelligent networking, Wi-Fi can be used not just inside but also outside the car, bus or truck, connecting automatically to millions of hotspots on the move. Likewise, V2X can be used to build mesh networks of connected vehicles to distribute over-the-air updates. Since much of the vehicle data is delay-tolerant, 4G/5G can be used more sparingly, thus saving auto OEMs up to 60% of their connectivity costs through Mobile Wi-Fi offload. Connected applications whose data cost was prohibitive now become economical viable, opening up new ways to delight our increasingly digital customers.
