Ericsson and Volvo Sign Five-Year Connected Vehicle Cloud Deal

Ericsson and Volvo Sign Five-Year Connected Vehicle Cloud Deal

Ericsson has been selected by Volvo to provide the industrialized Ericsson Connected Vehicle Cloud (CVC) platform to further enable its digital vehicle services in more than 120 markets worldwide for the next five years.

Volvo, like other major players in the automotive industry, is increasing focus on securing high-quality connected-vehicle services as digitalization increases the importance of software services. The services will also benefit from the increased speed, low-latency and capacity for mission critical applications, such as autonomous driving, that commercial 5G networks will enable.

The deal, which will enable Volvo Cars to provide car owners and drivers with its latest developments in connected car digital services such as automation, fleet management, telematics, navigation, and infotainment, is the largest to date for Ericsson Connected Vehicle Cloud. Delivered via several geographically distributed centers, the platform takes full account of legal, security, and privacy obligations on a global scale, such as GDPR.

“Ericsson is providing a highly scalable and global platform for connected services to Volvo Cars. By removing complexity in areas such as data legislation and storage management, and improving services latency, our platform enhances the overall user experience of Volvo connected services,” says Åsa Tamsons, Head of Business Area Technologies & New Businesses, Ericsson.
