MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Veniam, the leading provider of intelligent networking software for connected cars and future mobility, will explore joint solutions for the connected vehicle market with DENSO, the leading supplier of advanced automotive technology, systems and components for major automakers, through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
“By 2021 there will be more than 90 Million new connected vehicles coming out of the factory every single year. This represents billions of dollars in data costs for automakers worldwide,” said João Barros, founder and CEO of Veniam. “Together, DENSO and Veniam will enable carmakers to go beyond 4G LTE to make the most out of all the wireless interfaces in the car, including Wi-Fi and V2X. This will materially reduce data costs and will also jump start the next generation of cloud-based services for connected cars and autonomous vehicles,” continued Barros.
As part of their collaboration, Veniam and DENSO will explore the integration of Veniam’s intelligent data networking features in DENSO’s Communication Management (DN-CM) systems. This combination will significantly improve the ability of vehicles to move large amounts of data by leveraging multiple different networks securely. Veniam’s patented and award-winning technology further enables automakers to set global policies in the cloud that are automatically translated to local configurations in each vehicle communication unit.
Veniam is accelerating future mobility by delivering intelligent networking software for connected cars and autonomous vehicles. With an IP portfolio of more than 160 patents, Veniam’s data networking platform makes the most out of all available networks to improve quality of service and reduce the costs of moving massive amounts of data between vehicles and the cloud.
