Continental announces new orders for intelligent antennas and 5G connectivity
In the scope of their follow-up projects to current serial orders, two major European vehicle manufacturers have once again decided to work with Continental to supply innovative telematics and antenna solutions, the company announces.
Both projects build on the technology company’s 5G Hybrid V2X platform, which is specifically developed for scalability and flexibility. The vehicle manufacturers can use the platform without substantial customization efforts across global markets. In this way, the solution from Continental helps to reduce the number of variants, resulting in cost reduction for the vehicle manufacturer.
“Digitalization and connectivity are more important than ever before. The new serial orders clearly show that our integrated platform sets the technological basis for the vehicle as a node in the Internet of Everything,” says Johann Hiebl, head of Business Unit Connected Car Networking (CCN) at Continental.
