New Technology will Disrupt Automotive Business Models

In-vehicle technologies and telematics, in particular, will transform the automotive industry. The term ‘connected cars’ refers to devices installed in the vehicle which allow Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication or machine-to-human interaction.

M2M is communication between two single machines with no human interaction. In terms of vehicle telematics, this allows data to be sent from the vehicle to another location and used for vehicle conditioning or to monitor driver behavior.

Connected Car Market Development

According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, over 62 million vehicles will be capable of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication by 2023 -- rising from just over 1.1 million in 2019.

This adoption represents an average annual growth rate of 173 percent over these 4 years. Juniper believes that V2V solutions will enable low-latency communications between vehicles, notably for the purpose of driver safety.

The new market analysis found that the rollouts of 5G wireless communication networks, anticipated to launch next year, will be the key accelerant behind the expansion of V2V communications.

Juniper has predicted that automotive OEMs will gravitate towards 5G for V2V communication over other technologies, due to its lower latency and high range.


Juniper found that the move towards 5G will expedite commercial deployments and interoperability, and predicted that the U.S. will become the leading market for V2V deployments. Besides, over 60 percent of new vehicles sold in the U.S. market will be V2V-capable by 2023.

In turn, it's estimated that the technology could prevent over 9,300 deaths per annum in the United States, representing about 1 in 4 motor vehicle deaths.

"The safety benefits of V2V are clear, no incumbent technology can provide the network conditions across the entirety of road networks," said Sam Barker, senior analyst at Juniper Research. "5G will be the key facilitating technology of these automotive safety features, however long vehicle refresh rates -- typically around 8-12 years -- will initially hinder mass adoption."

Outlook for In-Vehicle Application Growth

The research findings also predicted that automotive OEMs will explore new strategies to generate revenues beyond the vehicle sale, including in-vehicle content subscriptions. Juniper forecast that revenues from directly-integrated vehicle apps will likely exceed $2.2 billion by 2023.

Juniper has advised that in addition to leveraging 5G networks, OEMs must open up their in-vehicle ecosystems to third parties, in order to accelerate the development of emerging and future automotive content revenue streams.

Hybrid Work: How to Enhance Employee Productivity

When you hire qualified talent for a key role and trust them to perform, you'll likely achieve the best outcome. Skilled and experienced people will deliver results, regardless of the challenges. That's a key lesson learned from the pandemic experience as most knowledge workers were asked to work from their homes. However, some resist returning to an open-plan office. It's unacceptable. Meanwhile, forward-thinking leaders decided a "return to normal" is undesirable, and in hindsight, everyone should aspire to be more accomodating than before. Therefore, location flexibility is okay. Hybrid Workforce Market Development How will people adapt to these changes? They'll apply the modern IT tools at their disposal. They'll learn new skills and thrive. Nearly 80 percent of employees are now successfully using online collaboration tools for work in 2021 -- that's up from just over half of workers in 2019, according to the latest market study by Gartner. This g

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Upside for New 5G Network Transport Infrastructure

The global mobile communication sector is in the midst of a significant network infrastructure upgrade to support the introduction of new high-bandwidth and low-latency broadband service offerings.  Telecom service provider data centers have an important role in fifth-generation (5G) network deployments. Providers undergoing their transition to Stand-Alone (SA) 5G must understand the technical demands of telco data centers and the key enablers of those offerings. According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the major prerequisites of 5G and the emerging transport solutions would help operators position themselves to successfully capitalize on the new revenue opportunities from delivering differentiated 5G connectivity services. 5G Transport Network Market Development "The rise of the telco data center has a high degree of confluence with the requirements of SA 5G architectures. SA 5G and its increasing reliance on telco data centers can be attributed to the incr
