IcC boosts global connectivity

In-car Cleverness (IcC) has partnered with Aeris to deliver what it claims will be consistent automotive cellular data and charge-free roaming across Europe – and the rest of the world – to its customers including dealerships, rental operators, leasing and insurance companies.

The vehicle technology specialist now claims to provide the most reliable, flexible and sophisticated network and data availability in the marketplace in partnership with a leader in the Internet of Things (IoT), Aeris.

With global support of cellular technology standards including global system for mobile communications (GSM), code division multiple access (CDMA) and long-term evolution (LTE), the Aeris and IcC collaboration boosts fleet flexibility, and provides opportunities for IcC customers to increase cross-border growth.

IcC provides telemetry services to improve the management of dealer vehicle fleets, corporate fleets, rental companies and insurers, reducing costs while improving safety and utilisation. As IcC’s solutions expand across the UK and Europe, the collaboration with Aeris allows the technology specialist to support customers wherever they are and whatever systems they use.

Mark Canning, director of product and services integration at In-car Cleverness, said, ‘This agreement means our customers can now expect optimum reliability at all times and the ability to roam across Europe – as several of fleet customers do – while still receiving the service they’ve come to expect from us.

‘Once we had established that the Aeris offering was in many respects better than, traditional carrier performance we wanted to include the whole of the EU on one tariff. This was a defining point in our engagement with Aeris as we seek to expand our business particularly with Europe in mind.’

Jonathan Smith, director of connectivity sales for enterprise and channel at Aeris, added, ‘Aeris’ global support of major Internet of Things automotive cellular technology standards, such as GSM, CDMA and LTE, enables In-car Cleverness to offer its customers full flexibility and growth across the globe. We look forward to helping In-car Cleverness expand their capabilities throughout the world.’
