Keynote on “The Internet of Autonomous Vehicles” available here

A year has passed since our last presence at the MWC, and we have a lot of impactful stories to share. On our path to turn thousands of vehicles into mobile Wi-Fi hotspots and connect millions of internet users in the world, we were lauded by CNBC as one of the 50 most forward-thinking companies in America, while at the same time awarded with the 2016 Best Auto Mobility Product/Service at the TU-Automotive Awards!

Beyond our award winning platform for mesh connected vehicles with managed services (Mobile Wi-Fi, Mobile Ads and Live Fleet), we are making great progress towards moving even larger amounts of data from autonomous vehicles to the cloud for future mobility services.

This year, we have a Keynote Presentation on the Main Stage of Mobile World Congress on “The Internet of Autonomous Vehicles (Hall 4 Auditorium 1, Thursday, March 2, 9:30am CET) and demonstrate on the exhibition floor (Hall 3 Stand 3D10, Orange booth, March 1) how Veniam succeeds in moving massive amounts of data between vehicles and the cloud, including the following case studies:

1) World’s Largest Network of Connected Vehicles for Smart Cities shows how Porto is leveraging Veniam’s vehicle mesh networking platform.

2) Smart Connected Buses in Asia’s Top University (Singapore) and the Smart Shuttle Buses in Downtown Manhattan (New York) shows how to make shuttle buses smarter and face the increasing demand for free Wi-Fi on the move.

If you would like to connect with us, just drop us an email. We look forward to your visit March 1st at the Orange booth, Hall 3 stand 3D10!

Veniam’s Agenda for the Mobile World Congress 2017

February 27, 2017 | Veniam’s CEO will be a panelist on an invitation-only networking evening where a debate will take place about the impact the rapidly changing political landscape will have on the industry and the regulatory environment that is so important to the adoption and proliferation of new technologies.

March 1st, 2017 Veniam Demo Day @MWC 2017 | Hall 3 Stand 3D10 (Orange booth)

March 2nd, 2017 | Veniam’s CEO will give a Keynote at the Start Up Innovation Stage about “The Internet of Autonomous Vehicles” | Hall 4 Auditorium 1 | 9:30am – 11:00am

Abstract: Autonomous vehicles are coming much faster than anyone imagined. Moreover, they are incredibly data hungry, consuming up to 4,000 GBs per day. One thing is clear: the current mobile internet infrastructure is not ready for this new and impending data tsunami. How can we solve this?  Veniam’s over four years of experience in deploying and operating mesh networks of connected vehicles in Porto, Singapore and New York has given us insights into how the future full of autonomous vehicles will evolve. It needs an intelligent combination of multi-network architectures, smart (and local) data management, and most importantly, low-latency fail-safe vehicle-to-cloud platforms that can provide scalable and superior quality of experience for mobility-as-a-service providers and their no-longer-driving customers. Finally, we will show that mesh connected vehicles can be a lot more than machines that carry people and goods from one place to the other. In fact, they can expand wireless coverage and gather massive amounts of urban data for a myriad of smart city applications.
