by Mark Fitzgerald | Apr 24, 2013

At Huawei's analyst summit in Shenzhen China, the Huawei team renewed its commitment to the connected car market. Following the announcement of its 3G and LTE communication modules - MU609T and ME909T - at MWC in Barcelona in February 2013, Mr Yang Yong - Vice President of Huawei's Mobile Broadband Products presented the company's strategy for the roll out of embedded automotive telematics solutions. Huawei will continue to invest in telematics - specializing in modules to partner with Tier 1 suppliers.

"Automotive Telematics and Smart Metering are the key M2M focus areas for us in 2013" said Mr Yang. "While we accept that we are the newcomers to this market, we will soon be announcing cooperation with a top Tier 1 supplier", continued Yang.

Strategy Analytics' latest research into the connected car opportunity is forecasting strong growth in most global regions, with shipment of OEM embedded telematics exceeding 40 million vehicles globally by 2020. "This represents a strong market opportunity for suppliers of hardware, services and applications, particularly as vehicle OEM's look to leverage the customer and vehicle relationship management (CRM/VRM) benefits of connecting the car", said Richard Robinson - Director of Automotive research at Strategy analytics.

Huawei's Analyst summit is an annual event that was held in Shenzhen China from the 23rd to the 25th of April 2013.
