Following last week’s announcement that Hyundai will be entering the telematics race, Sprint (Overland Park, KS, USA) CEO Dan Hesse has announced his company will provide the network infrastructure to support this and other connected vehicle applications.
During remarks at the 2011 Detroit Economic Club, Hesse unveiled the company’s “M2M Connected Transportation initiative.” “We want to provide connected transportation to trucks, buses, subways, taxis, planes, police cars and ambulances so that they can be instantly linked through voice, data and images,” said Hesse.
U.S. communications regulators adopted Internet traffic rules on Tuesday that prevent providers from blocking lawful content but still let them ration access to their networks. Operators may still legally institute policy control and traffic management, but prioritizing that traffic based on content is against the FCC's order.
Airwide Solutions (Burlington, MA, USA), the company best known for transmitting the first SMS text message, has announced the launch of their Network and Personal Security (NPS) solution. The solution aims to shield subscribers and operator infrastructure from potential threats and unwanted content.
