CES News:  WirelessCar, BMW Group, Connexis develop NGTP

WirelessCar, BMW Group and Connexis have developed the Next Generation Telematics Protocol (NGTP) in an effort to establish a standardised infrastructure for the delivery of new telematics services as technology advances.

Changing customer needs can also be more rapidly addressed by swapping out old services for new without the hassle of making technical adjustments inside the vehicle.

Furthermore, the NGTP framework can be used by all vehicle manufactures. OEMs with existing telematics business models, or those launching telematics services in the future, can benefit from the increased service offerings and open integration options created by the new protocol.

NGTP promotes openness and flexibility by separating the components of the telematics delivery chain and introducing a ‘dispatcher’ to provide a single interface between the telematics unit in the vehicle and the telematics service provider.

The open interface created by NGTP also enables OEMs to continuously provide new services to both legacy vehicles and new models over the entire vehicle lifecycle.
