Avanci, the independent global leader in joint licensing solutions, has launched its 5G Connected Vehicle program that will simplify the licensing of the cellular technologies used in next generation connected vehicles. Mercedes-Benz is the first automaker licensee on the Avanci 5G Vehicle platform.
Avanci was created with a vision of transforming how technology is shared. We ensure that the work of thousands of inventors around the world is recognized and rewarded. At the same time, by simplifying technology access, we enable companies to build exciting new products that are improving the lives of people across the globe, every day.—Kasim Alfalahi, founder and CEO of Avanci
The Avanci 5G Vehicle program covers patented technologies essential for 5G, 4G, 3G and 2G connectivity, including cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) which enables vehicles to directly communicate with other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians, and transportation infrastructure. Avanci’s 5G platform currently comprises 58 discrete licensors.
This new Avanci program builds on the success of Avanci 4G Vehicle, which today has more than 130 million connected vehicles on the world’s roads from more than 80 automotive brands covered by an Avanci 4G Vehicle license.
