Global Telematics Service Provider Brings In-Vehicle Services to Customers with AirPrime® Embedded Modules

Hughes Telematics, Inc. (HTI) is a leader in implementing the next generation of connected services. The company offers a portfolio of location-based telematics services with two-way wireless connectivity for consumers, manufacturers, fleets and dealers.

Business Challenge

Consumers buying new vehicles have had a range of connectivity options for several years. For the drivers of the estimated 1.4 billion older vehicles now on the road worldwide, these services have been out of reach. HTI aims to change that with In-Drive®, an aftermarket telematics solution for in-vehicle safety, security, diagnostics and data services.

Reliable two-way communications are central to all of these applications. To build cellular-enabled solutions for in-vehicle environments, additional factors must be considered such as extreme temperatures, vibration and limited reception.

Sierra Wireless AirPrime Solution

As a key component of the In-Drive solution, HTI uses the Sierra Wireless embedded wireless modules including the AirPrime SL6087 EDGE. The module features the Open AT Application Framework including the world’s only operating system designed for machine-to-machine (M2M) application development. The Sierra Wireless solution combines application processing and communications processing in a single module, eliminating the need for a separate external processor and allowing HTI to build rich capabilities into a smaller footprint.
