HUGHES Telematics Becomes First in Industry to Implement Next Generation Telematics Architecture

Technology sets new benchmark, allowing for scalability and flexibility that liberate the supply chain.

LAS VEGAS — HUGHES Telematics says it has implemented the world’s first technology-neutral telematics framework that allows virtually any supplier’s technology to be integrated into the system. This Next Generation Telematics Architecture establishes an open telematics platform structure that allows for interconnectivity between multiple content providers, call centers and in-vehicle hardware platforms.

The company developed the architecture around the vision and standards as established by the Next Generation Telematics Protocol (NGTP) working committee. Following the proposed architecture, HUGHES Telematics created an industry platform that allows automotive OEMs to custom-tailor content and features while maintaining maximum flexibility in hardware selection and the addition of future services. This includes improving the driver experience by allowing for new content, Internet applications and service updates to be downloaded remotely via the HUGHES Telematics platform.

The protocol implemented by HUGHES Telematics supports multiple call centers, content providers and hardware suppliers. The Next Generation Telematics Architecture solution also supports various vehicle interfaces and data formats, thus it can be configured to any vehicle. These developments liberate the supply chain and ensure the ability to offer new services without reconfiguring the vehicle, according to the company.

"The telematics industry continues to evolve as technology offerings mature and consumer expectations for the connected car grow," says Thilo Koslowski, vice president and lead automotive analyst, Gartner, Inc. "Next generation telematics offerings will leverage an open system approach to enable service differentiation, flexible content management and the creation of unique driver experiences."
