Ago some time than cars, not all models or on all manufacturers, they are incorporating mobile connectivity options, not only to offer WiFi to passengers but also to gain access to more related services with the smart cars to utilities that are used, as access to the statistics of the motor to distance or geo-location.
What had not happened until now is mobile lines for vehicles high volume exceeded the high of smartphones, and is not a timely data but all quarter. The country in which this happened is United States and thence come the figures: 32 percent from the high of mobile lines correspond to cars compared with 31% high of lines for smartphones.
The IoT, which is more present than ever
The internet of things, that expression that begins to be so sobreutilizada that we will end up by grow weary of it, includes all kinds of objects, from homes connected to industrial installations. Of course, cars fall into the same category and this increase in discharge lines for them reflects a trend that invited to suggest that the explosion of the IoT is just around the corner.
The data show that mobile lines for vehicles exceeded the lines for smartphones, Although for very little. 32% versus 31%, although the third block of lines corresponds to the tablets with 23%. Thus, mobility gadgets would exceed 50% of the total number of lines, but the growth of vehicles has been most remarkable in this last quarter.
All this with the added that these lines for connected vehicles operate on the same frequencies and using the same networks of mobile phones, something that can be changed in the future if the project of Samsung in South Korea comes to fruition, then I could do that exclusive networks are created to support this low-level traffic.
And in Korea, a network for smart cities
It does well little knew in her native country, Korea, Samsung plans to put into operation with the help of the Government and a local operator, the first network of low frequency for smart cities. Another indication that IoT continues to grow, more than it may seem at first.
The new national network LoRaWan of Samsung and SK Telecom should be available for the length and breadth of Korea of the South from mid of this year, beginning the implementation in Daegu, the fourth most important city of the country, the month of June. It can be connected permanently autonomous cars, renewable energy platforms in the cloud, devices, health tests and all kinds of climatological data collection systems.
We don’t know what the future might hold for us but the increase of manufacturing and distribution of cars connected, attached to a Smartphone market that already not growing at the pace of a few years ago thinking that This life may have been the first but not the last. We will watch to see how it behaves now on operators market.
