Cubic Telecom, a connectivity management software provider for the automotive and IoT industries, and Rogers Communications, the largest provider of wireless communications services in Canada, today announced a collaboration to provide a connected car solution for Canadians.
This important partnership integrates Cubic Telecom’s PACE platform (Platform for Application and Connectivity Enablement) and connected car solution with the Rogers mobile network, enabling a high-quality connected car experience throughout Canada and the United States.
As a leader in IoT, Rogers is able to support seamless connectivity for any auto manufacturer hosted on Cubic Telecom’s PACE platform. PACE integrates with multiple original equipment manufacturer (OEM) IT systems and mobile operator platforms to provide car users with access to always-on connected services and streaming content. Cubic Telecom’s PACE integrates multiple technologies into a single point of control for the automotive manufacturer.
Drivers and passengers will benefit from navigation and real-time route mapping and can stream their favourite music and video content across Canada and the United States. The first automakers set to benefit from this agreement will be announced early next year, with Cubic Telecom and Rogers connected vehicles starting to appear on Canada’s roads in early 2020.
Barry Napier, Cubic Telecom CEO said, “Through our partnership with Rogers, a leader in IoT, we’re able to bring Canadians our seamless PACE connectivity management platform, all powered by Canada’s most trusted network. OEMs will soon be able to provide Canadians the opportunity to interact with local content in real-time wherever they travel. We are excited about expanding our PACE automotive solution and industry-first connected car capabilities into Canada in partnership with Rogers.”
“We chose to partner with Cubic Telecom based on its proven robust solution and reputation as a leading connectivity provider to the automotive marketplace. Rogers for Business is focused on developing strategic partnerships to drive innovation and enable businesses in the auto industry to transform their customer experience and bring new services to market,” said Dean Prevost, President, Rogers for Business.
