HARMAN and Sierra Wireless Focus on 4G for Cars

HARMAN and Sierra Wireless announced a partnership to bring 4G connectivity to automobiles. HARMAN will support Sierra Wireless AirPrime intelligent embedded modules for LTE networks to offer robust in-vehicle wireless connectivity enabling high bandwidth telematics, navigation, and online infotainment applications. The AirPrime modules also leverage broadly adopted applications programming interfaces (APIs) to encourage a growing ecosystem of software providers' solutions for connectivity, location, and manageability.

The companies are betting on multi-faceted media, office and online experience within the vehicle, from driver enhancements such as real-time mapping and traffic updates, to a variety of new services for passengers such as online services, dynamic loaded applications and content, gaming, streaming video, and full internet access that can be shared among multiple devices.
