Cubic Telecom has announced that it has launched the largest independent LTE platform in Europe for M2M and connected car applications. The Cubic platform is directly connected to tier 1 network partners and aims to deliver robust and competitive connectivity for drivers of major connected car brands across Europe.
The cross-Europe LTE platform will provide subscribed connected car drivers high-speed connectivity. Users connected to the network can also purchase regional or Europe-wide data plans to give them access to Wi-Fi connectivity in their cars.
“We were very excited to see this rollout come together so quickly. We are live on 2G, 3G and LTE with nine tier 1 operators in 13 countries empowering the top auto OEMs with the largest independent LTE footprint in Europe,” said Barry Napier, CEO of Cubic Telecom. “Cubic Telecom’s initial focus is on rolling out a high-speed LTE Platform with mobile operators for M2M customers with our global SIM solution. Cubic has been clearly identified as a leader in enabling the ‘Ease of Things’ (EoT) which addresses the continued demand for quality M2M connectivity.”
The initial network rollout will encompass 13 countries including Germany, France, Spain, Italy, UK, Ireland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden, Austria and Denmark. The network is being made possible by Cubic Telecom’s collaboration with a number of network operators including, EE (Everything Everywhere), EIR (rebranded Eircom), Mobistar, Orange, Salt (formerly Orange Switzerland), Tele2 and TIM.
