“As we all know from our own experience, anyone with time on their hands while in transit grabs their smartphone or tablet and gets on the internet if they can” says Omar Bakr, CEO of Tarana. “Driverless, shared cars — which create more free time for us all in addition to reducing road congestion and carbon emissions — will no doubt create a whole new set of challenges for mobile networks, for high-throughput device connectivity as well as high-reliability and low-latency communication with the cars themselves. Adding Tarana’s unrivaled developments in reliable, resilient, gigabit wireless technology for forthcoming 5G networks to the S4C initiative will be a perfect complement to parallel advances in e-mobility and clean energy.”
