Sprint Velocity Expands Connected Vehicle Services For Automakers With Sprint Velocity Connect

Sprint (NYSE: S) announced today that its Sprint VelocitySM business unit is entering a second year of operations with expanded capabilities for automotive manufacturers, including the official automotive debut of Sprint Velocity Connect.

With this expansion, Sprint Velocity, a global end-to-end telematics solution, is now available for more vehicles than ever before. Sprint is showcasing Sprint Velocity at the Connected Car Expo, which is a specialty exhibition within the Los Angeles Auto Show (LAAS).

“With more than 14 million vehicles sold in the United States yearly, auto manufacturers are in a constant race to bring the newest, most versatile and technology-packed products to market,” said Ben Vos, vice president and general manager, Sprint Emerging Solutions. “Sprint Velocity makes it easier for automakers to win that race by offering the most advanced connected services available today, supported by unsurpassed telematics integration and consumer-focused resources that can translate into increased revenues and stronger customer loyalty.”

Simplified and accelerated development for automakers

Sprint Velocity Connect is an expanded capability that supports additional hardware on the Sprint Velocity platform, including TCUs (Telematics Control Units), OBD-II (On-Board Diagnostic) devices and embedded in-dash head units. The Sprint Velocity platform enables this connectivity through its open, cloud-based architecture with standard machine-to-machine interfaces. As a result, Sprint can customize solutions to each automaker’s specific needs and then deploy those solutions either before or after a vehicle is sold. This ensures automakers can deploy connected services that conform to their exact specifications and are no longer limited to off-the-shelf solutions that may involve more or fewer features than they require.

With access to the Sprint Velocity platform, vehicle manufacturers can streamline the design and development process, simplify the integration of complex components, and simplify the management of ecosystem partners. Developed by Sprint’s award-winning IT team, Sprint Velocity Connect brings numerous additional benefits to auto manufacturers, including:

  • flexibility to deliver telematics services; whether embedded, brought in phone, a hybrid of both, or now, with Sprint Velocity Connect devices
  • elimination of multiple points of potential failure and reduction in the number of handoffs, while improving extensibility and scaling
  • reduced cost, complexity and cycle times

In addition to these advantages, automakers have continued access to Sprint Velocity capabilities, such as subscription management, storefront, policy management and billing.
