Connected cars are transforming the automotive industry and introducing changes to the sector that could be as revolutionary as Henry Ford’s moving assembly line in 1913. As modern vehicles increasingly resemble computers and data centres on wheels, adding Internet connectivity marks an inflection point.
Fuelled by advances in wireless connectivity, sensor technology and data analytics, car manufacturers are developing new business models for improving vehicle safety, operation and maintenance as well as providing drivers and passengers with navigation and entertainment services.
For mobile operators, connected cars offer prospects for service growth and are important components of their Internet of Things (IoT) strategies.

This white paper examines how hybrid networks will help mobile operators alleviate pressure on their networks and accelerate connected car service revenues.
