Vehicular Wireless and Connectivity Management

The GSM Association predicts that the growth of embedded, cellular-based telematics will reach nearly 11 million per year by 2020. Will nomadic wireless technologies play a positive role?

Report: Vehicle Wireless Roaming and Connectivity Management – Opportunities and Challenges

The Multi-Path Transmission Control Protocol and Implications for Connected Vehicle  Coming 2014

ITS America's first wireless report examined how next generation 4G cellular (wide-area), and nomadic wireless such as Wi-Fi (local-area) and Dedicated Short Range Communications (vehicle-area) will evolve and possibly support a number of vehicle applications.

This report expands on how all of these wireless technologies might be meshed together and "roamable' through the use of the Multi-path Transmission Control Protocol (Multi-Path TCP). Multi-path TCP is mature and in mobile devices such as Apple iOS. However, this report suggests some of the drawbacks of, and alternatives to, Multi-Path TCP -- such as cellular carriers future IP Multi-media System (IPMS) or Wi-Fi operators' Hotspot 2.0.
