ZTE Corporation has become a member of 5G Automotive Association (5GAA), enabling ZTE to team up with industrial partners to further promote the smart Internet of Vehicles.
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 standardization, 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, and 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.
ZTE urges that the smart Internet of Vehicles should lay its roots in 4G and evolve into 5G. During this evolvement, true gaps and potential needs should be identified and services such as telematics, traffic efficiency, and active security should be developed step by step.
