Magneti Marelli and Telit Communications sign Memorandum of Understanding

Magneti Marelli and Telit Communications SpA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in the area of GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) and GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) modules to be used on telematics devices in the automotive field. The agreement aims at developing info-mobility and tracking functions and services, and specifically provides for Telit to supply Magneti Marelli with cellular M2M (machine-to-machine) modules to be fitted into telematics boxes for automotive use worldwide, and in particular for Europe and Brazil.

The cooperation between Magneti Marelli and Telit originates from their partnership for the development of the first portable navigation device with high-speed data transfer (3G). Integrated with a high-speed modem 3G/HSDPA (7.2Mb/s) and internet browser, this navigation device allows vehicle occupants to surf the internet in the same way as from a personal computer and to download web content. The GSM module is the system component that provides voice communication capabilities and internet connectivity to the car. The use of modules on platforms, such as telematics boxes, enables vehicle connectivity to communication networks and the exchange of information, ensuring mobile broadband connection during a journey.

As a result of this connectivity, the telematics boxes allow a wide range of info-mobility services to be accessed from the vehicle, such as pay-per-use telematics insurance services, anti-theft tracking and vehicle location, remote diagnostics, company fleet management, emergency call (e-Call), real-time traffic information services, access and speed limits, and in-vehicle multimedia entertainment services. Eugenio Razelli, CEO of Magneti Marelli, says, “Working with a partner such as Telit assures the proper technological standard for wireless communication and connectivity modules, which are at the heart of our automotive info-mobility solutions and systems that aim to deliver the world of internet, information and value-added functions and services to the vehicle.”
