In-car Cleverness and Aeris expand global connectivity service for IoT automotive telematics
In-car Cleverness (IcC) is collaborating with Aeris to deliver “even more consistent” IoT automotive cellular data and charge-free roaming across Europe – and the rest of the world – to its customers. These include automotive dealers, car rental operators and auto leasing and insurance companies.
IcC, a vehicle technology provider, claims it can now provide the most reliable, flexible and sophisticated network and data availability in the marketplace.
With global support of cellular technology standards including Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) and Long-Term Evolution (LTE), the Aeris and IcC collaboration boosts fleet flexibility and provides opportunities for IcC customers to increase their cross-border growth.
A part of the Automotive & Insurance Solutions Group of Companies (AIS), IcC provides telemetry services to improve the management of corporate fleets, rental companies and dealership groups, reduce costs and improve safety and utilisation.
As IcC’s solutions expand across the U.K. and continental Europe, the collaboration with Aeris reportedly allows IcC to support customers wherever they are and whatever systems they use.
Mark Canning, director of product and services integration, In-car Cleverness, said: “This agreement means our customers can now expect optimum reliability at all times and the ability to roam across Europe – as several of fleet customers do – while still receiving the service they’ve come to expect from us. Once we had established that the Aeris solution was in many respects better than traditional carrier performance, we wanted to include the whole of the EU on one tariff. This was a defining point in our engagement with Aeris as we seek to expand our business particularly with Europe in mind.”
Jonathan Smith, director of connectivity sales for enterprise and channel, Aeris, commented: “Aeris’ global support of major Internet of Things automotive cellular technology standards, such as GSM, CDMA and LTE, enables In-car Cleverness to offer its customers full flexibility and growth across the globe. We look forward to helping In-car Cleverness expand their capabilities throughout the world.”
