Dublin-based global connectivity management software supplier Cubic Telecom has announced plans to join forces with Microsoft at the Frankfurt International Motor Show this year.

The company provides software to automotive and IoT industries and is partnered with VW Group brands. It will demonstrate its in-market connected-car capabilities using a dashboard from the all-electronic Audi e-Tron. This allows drivers to access 'infotainment' applications, connect their personal devices to its WiFi hotspot and top up on high speed LTE plans.

Aside from this, Cubic Telecom will also present work from its collaboration with Microsoft. In particular, it has been working on Microsoft's Connected Vehicle Platform, which combines infrastructure and platform services built on Microsoft Azure with a strong partner network. This will allow the automotive industry to create connected driving experiences.

Cubic Telecom is set to demonstrate this technology and the also become the first connectivity management software provider to deploy future-proof sustainable voice services using LTE at the Frankfurt Motor Show, which takes place from 10 to 15 September. The company said “Cubic Telecom’s focus on the future and innovation delivery addresses the gradual sunset of 2G and 3G by operators. This technology sunset means VoLTE support is necessary for e-call and concierge services.”

Currently, more than 2.5 million drivers are already using Cubic's connected-car solution in parts of Europe and Asia. The company's core network spans 180 countries and more than 75 tier-1 mobile operator partnerships. It goes on to say that its connected-car solution will enable manufacturers to provide drives with consistent 4G LTE for data, voice and SMS at local rates, and that this will be deployed in 20 million vehicles over the next four years.
