LAS VEGAS -- Ericsson today announced an agreement with AT&T to improve connectivity for products and applications that are powered by the Ericsson Connected Vehicle Cloud. The agreement creates a better consumer experience and helps advance the automotive cloud ecosystem by making it easier to connect in-vehicle technology and provide a path for the next generation consumer experience.

"We created the AT&T Drive platform to bring automakers the best the industry has to offer, so we can deliver innovation, not a one-size-fits-all solution. Ericsson is an integral player in that platform of services,"" said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, AT&T Mobility. "Ericsson's vehicle cloud realizes the true potential of connected vehicle products and applications."

Connected Vehicle Cloud is based on Ericsson's Service Enablement Platform, providing drivers and passengers with access to applications directly from a screen in the car. Examples of consumer services include the ability to detect vehicle repair issues, automatically book service appointments, subscribe to in-vehicle Wi-Fi, and on-demand infotainment. The solution is enhanced by its ability to send and receive information from third-party ecosystems players, such as satellite radio content providers, road authorities, and city and government sites.

Ericsson has a strong role as a system integrator and managed services provider, applying experiences from the fast-moving cellular industry on similar ICT challenges in other industries. Part of Ericsson's Transport and Automotive offerings, Connected Vehicle Cloud targets the global automotive industry's existing and future demands for scalability, security and flexibility in the provisioning of connected car services to drivers and passengers.

Connected Vehicle Cloud leverages Ericsson's M2M service enablement capabilities and portfolio in the OSS/BSS domain and can be deployed on standard cloud infrastructures. It can be thoroughly integrated in core business processes such as customer relationship management and service management by Ericsson Consulting and Systems Integration Services and can be efficiently operated by Ericsson Managed Services.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
