Ericsson announced that Connected Vehicle Cloud based on Ericsson's Multiservice Delivery Platform will provide infotainment, apps and communication services in Volvo's new cars. Volvo Car Group will use Ericsson's Connected Vehicle Cloud in order to allow drivers, passengers and the car to connect to services available in the cloud. Drivers and passengers will be able to access applications for information, navigation, and entertainment from a screen in the car. At the same time, Volvo Cars will be able to open parts of the platform to other players in the eco-system of the automotive industry. Content providers will have agreements with Volvo and the other members of the ecosystem, like Internet radio providers, road authorities, cities' governments, toll-road operators and others. The partnership calls for Ericsson to perform systems integration of the solution with Volvo Car Group IS/IT environments and in-vehicle systems. Ericsson will also provide managed services for a global cloud solution with a secure connection between the vehicle and all players in the value chain and in the ecosystem.
