Honda Leverages Cisco to Launch Connected Car Service in Europe

By Ken Briodagh March 01, 2017

In a recent announcement, Honda has said it is leveraging IoT solutions from Cisco Jasper and Bright Box to deliver its MyHonda Connected Car platform, designed to provide services to enhance driving experience and improve vehicle management.

MyHonda is designed to use telematics solutions from Bright Box, powered by the Cisco Jasper Control Center automated IoT connectivity management platform, to deliver a variety of connected services that increase driver safety, simplify vehicle ownership, and enable new experiences for drivers. Honda will launch these Connected Car services across all European countries.

“At Honda we are committed to optimizing safety, security and convenience for drivers with innovative connected services,” said Sandra Hughes, Head of Marketing and Product Management, Honda Motor Europe. “The IoT services that Bright Box and Cisco Jasper enable us to deliver help ensure that Honda drivers receive the best possible driving experience.”

Cisco Jasper Control Center is the global IoT platform of choice for 23 of the world’s largest auto manufacturers. Control Center helps transform vehicles into dynamic hubs capable of delivering a variety of services that provide new, ongoing revenue channels for both OEMs and their ecosystem partners.

“Using Cisco Jasper Control Center in our Connected Car projects with Honda and other automotive OEMs significantly reduces our operating costs and increases the Bright Box service quality for our customers,” said Ivan Mishanin, CEO, Bright Box.

“Jasper provides a common interface that allows the OEM to find the operational advantages of scale, in globally diverse markets,” said Michael Blank, Senior Director, Connected Car, Cisco Jasper. “We have partnered with more than 50 wireless carriers in mobile markets worldwide to give visibility and operational control to the OEM.”

The connected transportation space has been ahead of the curve in terms of implementing IoT technology for quite some time, but has been lagging in the search for partnerships that enable easier transitions to market. Let’s hope this is a sign that the auto industry is starting to make up ground.
