Deutsche Telekom subsidiary MobiledgeX is partnering STRATACACHE to develop advanced content, media and application delivery solutions for the automotive sector on a global scale. Ohio based STRATACACHE and California based MobiledgeX are aiming to develop 5G/edge solutions to enable cross carrier application deployments as part of V2X implementations.

The partnership between the two firms aims to address the processing and efficient enablement of rich media experiences in connected cars.

“Combining the 5G edge compute framework of MobiledgeX and the efficient content acceleration of SuperLumin allows us to not only serve the automotive industry as they evolve the Cellular Vehicle to Everything architecture, but also — as vehicles transform into media and retail environments — our expertise in data and event-driven experiences allows us to bridge the automotive and retail industries to create new personalised experiences. We’re expanding the boundaries of retail, helping consumers find and engage with brands as part of the driving experience,” said Chris Riegel, CEO of STRATACACHE. 

“By combining our 5G Edge-Cloud environment with STRATACACHE SuperLumin’s accelerated content delivery we are addressing a missing piece in the adoption of C-V2X for vehicle operation and the profitable inclusion of humans in  multi-modal environments,” said Eric Braun, Chief Commercial Officer at MobiledgeX. “The combination solves the challenge of providing data and media within cross carrier highly distributed networks and will allow automotive and retail industries to reach and engage customers wherever and whenever the customers require”.
