Orange announces a new partnership with Renault for researching LTE and the car industry

Orange announces its partnership with Renault researching long term evolution (LTE) technologies and their use in the automotive industry. The aim: to develop a “hyper-connected” vehicle, allowing drivers to access digital activities whenever driving circumstances permit.
This joint-initiative is being debuted at Le Web with an initial test on their NEXT TWO prototype based on the Renault ZOE.

Rémi Bastien, Head of Engineering Innovation at Renault, stressed that the initiative is bringing together two very different businesses stating:
“This partnership is an example of an effective working relationship between two very different worlds. We were able to benefit ahead of time from a high-speed LTE network and from Orange’s expertise, with an opportunity to take advantage of the network for our prototype of the connected vehicle of the future.”

This move adds to Renault’s connected car capabilities, with the Renault R-Link providing drivers with an integrated and connected touchscreen tablet.
