Novatel Wireless, Inc. and Autonet Mobile, the first Internet service provider for cars, recently announced a partnership to deliver next-generation wireless connectivity for automobiles.

The technology enables passengers to easily surf the Web, check e-mail and play games online, as well as access personal content using any Wi-Fi enabled device within close proximity to the vehicle.

Novatel has also become a design and manufacturing partner working with Autonet Mobile utilizing the Novatel Expedite® E725 Express Mini Card Module to miniaturize and deliver an automotive grade Internet connectivity solution in next generation designs.

As part of the news, Novatel Wireless and Autonet Mobile will work with auto manufacturers and the aftermarket to bring Autonet Mobile’s wireless Internet service to the automotive industry.

“Autonet’s Mobile IP Platform delivers exciting new wireless content delivery options to the car with a true 3G user experience,” says Brad Weinert, president of Novatel Wireless. “By leveraging the latest wireless technology and Novatel Wireless’ software development kits and engineering expertise, Autonet Mobile is able to reduce its development cycles, increase time to market and capture the first-mover advantage.”

“Leveraging advanced wireless technologies and expertise from Novatel will be a major factor in our ability to deliver the highest quality, most reliable Internet service specifically for cars,” says Sterling Pratz, CEO of Autonet Mobile. “We look forward to an ongoing partnership as a key driver for our continued success.”
