The automotive and utilities sectors, amongst others, represent strong market opportunities for mobile network operators and other service providers. Embedding telematics into vehicles which use mobile connectivity to deliver safety and security services, and infotainment services such as internet access, live traffic updates and weather reports are becoming increasingly commonplace. Meanwhile, mobile connectivity is enabling utilities suppliers to more effectively manage the supply and demand of consumers’ energy and water.
The market opportunity for embedded mobile in the automotive and utilities sectors will be evaluated in this session. It will also explore the types of services that can be expected in the future and the role of the various players in the value chain in bringing these solutions to market, whilst addressing critical successful factors.
