Dublin, Ireland. March 7, 2022. Award-winning connected software solutions provider, Cubic Telecom is set to strengthen its strategic partnership with Qualcomm, the world’s leading chipmaker for in-vehicle systems. Cubic’s connected software solution will enable the visibility, analytics, insights and connectivity behind Qualcomm’s innovative Car-to-Cloud solutions.  

Cubic’s Plxor, Insights and Pace products will enable Qualcomm to extend cloud-based services on Snapdragon chipset modules to automotive OEMs globally. Integration with Cubic’s Pace connectivity management platform will enable Qualcomm’s cloud-based lifecycle management, OTA updates and on-demand feature activations. This collaboration will provide a single embedded software solution, meaning that any vehicle shipped anywhere in the world will have built-in compliance across local markets.  

For automotive OEMs, Cubic’s collaboration with Qualcomm will enable a turnkey, integrated digital cockpit solution, opening up a wealth of enhanced service, infotainment and upgrade opportunities via an always-connected, highly configurable system. 

Cubic Telecom CEO Barry Napier welcomed this latest milestone in a relationship dating back to 2012. “As a trusted partner and enabler of Qualcomm’s innovative Car-to-Cloud architecture, Cubic is proud to be part of Qualcomm’s strategic plans, as it shifts into cloud-enabled services and lifecycle management.”  

“Using three of Cubic’s core software products: Plxor for differentiated billing, Insights for real-time device monitoring and Pace for seamless connectivity, localised services and compliance will enable Qualcomm to power global and regional cloud-based apps, services and content,” added Napier, “We’re excited that Qualcomm has chosen the Cubic Team to help deliver its next-generation vehicle solutions.”

Qualcomm said that the solution created from its Snapdragon Car-to-Cloud Services and Cubic’s software provides a single point of control for global out-of-the-box connectivity on Qualcomm Telematics SOC-based NAD modules, with support for bundled data and services, adding that “The solution also solves for regional regulation complexities with built-in compliance across regional markets.”

Cubic’s global connected software solutions power more than 8 million vehicles across 100 countries for leading automotive brands, including Volkswagen Group, CNH Industrial, Arrival and e.GO Mobile, as well key technology players such as Microsoft and Kymeta.   

In January 2021, Cubic won the “IoT Analytics Innovation Award” at the IoT Breakthrough Awards, in recognition of the company’s expanded product portfolio and expertise in analysing connected vehicle data as manufacturers strive to optimize driver experience.
