The Japanese Tier 1 automotive supplier, FUJITSU TEN, has chosen Telenor Connexion to provide a connected service solution for its Remote Engine Start telematics service, which is an aftermarket product to be deployed overseas.
In the automotive industry, it is expected that the connected car will become even more developed.
In response to such changes, FUJITSU TEN is focused on providing technologies that encompass the ITS support for driving safety, advanced car telematics systems, and development of more efficient commercial vehicles.
Telenor Connexion provides an end-to-end connectivity solution in part of FUJITSU Group’s “FENICS II M2M Service” from FUJITSU TEN’s on-board ECU telematics unit to the FUJITSU Group Data Centre.
That allows car-owners to take advantage of a variety of services including remotely starting the engine or checking the status of a car with a smartphone.
“We are very pleased to contribute to the development of vehicles that keep drivers constantly connected to the world around them through two-way, seamless exchange of information”, says Per Simonsen, CEO at Telenor Connexion.
FUJITSU TEN’s partnership with Telenor Connexion is a direct result of a continued focus on reliable and secure connectivity solutions.
“Telenor Connexion provides an innovative and scalable connectivity solution which will be an integral part of the deployment of our products in the automotive markets”, says Yoshinari Shiraishi, executive chief engineer at FUJITSU TEN.
