ZTE in partnership to promote smart Internet of Vehicles as it joins 5GAA

ZTE Corporation, an international provider of telecoms, enterprise and consumer technology for the mobile internet, has become a member of the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA). This is enabling ZTE to team up with industrial partners to further promote the smart Internet of Vehicles (IoV).

The 5GAA is a cross-industry association formed in September 2016 by players in the telecommunications and automotive sectors. The association will develop, test and promote communications solutions, support standardisation and accelerate commercial availability and global market penetration.

The goal is to address society’s connected mobility and road safety needs with applications such as connected automated driving, ubiquitous access to services, integration into smart cities and intelligent transportation. The members comprise a complete ecosystem for the smart Internet of Vehicles, including automotive manufacturers, telecom operators, telecom infrastructure providers, chips suppliers and automotive parts suppliers.

As a global communications solution provider, ZTE is committed to building a set of secure, open and shared terminal-pipe-cloud platforms and environment for the smart Internet of Vehicles. ZTE offers secure, efficient and ubiquitous wireless connections, an operating system platform, as well as devices in-vehicle, such as 4G multi-mode modules T-BOX, on-board diagnostics (OBD) and Wi-Fi-in-car modules to address security, control and information needs. ZTE also has extensive expertise in the intelligent transportation systems (ITS) field, with a variety of solutions covering traffic control, transportation management, emergency telecommunications cluster (ETC) and information services.

Bai Gang, general manager of ZTE’s 5G product sector

Furthermore, the Internet of Vehicles is a sub-ecosystem of the Global IoT Alliance, which was founded by ZTE and has a large number of industrial players.

4G high-speed mobile networks are an excellent platform for the smart Internet of Vehicles, but the smart Internet of Vehicles will expand into a broader ecosystem and perform in a more safe and reliable, efficient and flexible fashion with the advent of 5G.

ZTE urges that the smart Internet of Vehicles should lay its roots in 4G and evolve into 5G. During this evolution, true gaps and potential needs should be identified and services such as Telematics, traffic efficiency and active security should be developed step by step.

“ZTE is delighted to be a member of the 5GAA. ZTE is stepping up efforts in key 5G technologies and has made breakthroughs in channel coding, massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), network virtualisation and slicing, as well as accurate positioning. All these achievements will bring a fresh user experience for the smart Internet of Vehicles,” said Bai Gang, general manager of ZTE’s 5G product sector. “As an M-ICT enabler, ZTE will work together with partners to promote the smart Internet of Vehicles and global cross-industry collaboration.”
