Tata Communications to Accelerate Connected Cars with Microsoft Platform

By Ken Briodagh November 14, 2019

Reportedly, Tata Communications, a digital infrastructure provider, is now working with Microsoft to help speed up the development of new innovative connected car applications. By combining the IoT connectivity and network intelligence capabilities of Tata Communications MOVE with the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform, Tata Communications said it plans to enable automotive manufacturers to offer consumers more seamless and secure driving experiences.

The Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform is designed to combine cloud and edge services with a partner network that reportedly will empower automotive companies to build connected driving experiences. By adding the the Tata Communications MOVE platform, the partner companies said that there will be additional capability to equip vehicles with encrypted vehicle-to-cloud connectivity globally to address challenges in vehicle-to-everything (V2X) applications.

“Connectivity through the Tata Communications MOVE platform, together with the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform’s secure and compliant cloud platform, ensures the security and integrity of data across a range of scenarios, including predictive maintenance, remote monitoring and control, and advanced navigation,” said Tara Prakriya, Partner Group Program Manager, Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform and Mobility, Microsoft. “The integration will make analyzing data from vehicles easier for car manufacturers across all services and allow them to complete software updates quickly. It will also help service centres maintain vehicles more effectively.”

Tata Communications will build a proof-of-concept solution integrating the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform with the Tata Communications MOVE platform to show to automotive manufacturers how their joint capabilities will accelerate the creation of new ground-breaking connected car applications, according to the release.

“In the not-too-distant future, you won’t view your car as a mode of transportation, you’ll view it as a mode of entertainment – and the opportunities that this opens up in areas like video streaming, retail, advertising and insurance are immense,” said Tim Sherwood, VP, Mobility and IoT, Tata Communications. “To unleash the full potential of V2X applications, businesses in the connected car ecosystem must be able to capture, move and manage gigabytes of vehicle data securely and seamlessly across the globe. That’s what our latest collaboration with Microsoft is all about – we want to turn that future potential into reality and pave the way for new disruptive connected car services.”
