Denso selects Airbiquity’s in-band modem

Airbiquity announced yesterday a global licensing agreement with Japanese navigation and telematics supplier DENSO, for its aqLink in-band software modem to support a North American automotive telematics program.

“Airbiquity was chosen to provide DENSO with two-way wireless connectivity through our aqLink software modem, an already road-proven product with more than 12 million vehicle installations to date,” said David Jumpa, senior vice-president of global business development for Airbiquity.

The aqLink software modem can be integrated onto a wireless module, Bluetooth hands-free kit or a navigation system to deliver connectivity applications. aqLink uses the voice channel which has the advantage to transmit data without unpredictable delays, a very important feature for critical and time-sensitive applications such as crash notification.
