How ITU’s newest member, Cubic Telecom, is driving in-car connectivity

By ITU News

Cubic Telecom, a leader in delivering Connected Intelligence and driving in-car connectivity, has just become a member of ITU’s standardization arm (ITU-T), underscoring again the importance of increased collaboration between the automotive and information and communications technology (ICT) industries in an era of rapid convergence.

Cubic Telecom’s participation in ITU will support the company in solidifying its status as a global technology enabler. Cubic counts some of the world’s leading auto original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as customers and partners with Tier 1 mobile network operators (MNOs) around the globe to provide seamless connectivity for end users.

“Cubic Telecom has become a member of ITU as this is a globally recognized and credible international body. By adhering to its technical standards Cubic can offer its secure solutions on a global scale.” – Robert Mourik, Director for Carrier Relations & Regulatory Affairs at Cubic

Cubic Telecom recently announced that it has technically enabled more than one million cars since launching its software platform 15 months ago. It says that cars are connecting every day in more than 35 countries across 40 mobile networks, and the company’s customers − original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) − include blue-chip brands within the Volkswagen Group.
