Network and cloud services provider, Interoute has announced the renewal of its agreement as ICT provider to automotive diagnostic company, Texa.
The deal will see Interoute connectivity and cloud services used to support Texa’s international expansion and market development for its remote diagnostic tools for trucks, cars, motorcycles, agricultural vehicles and marine engines.
Interoute says it provides Texa with highly redundant, low latency, private connectivity through an international MPLS VPN between the company’s headquarter, its foreign branches in Poland, Spain, France, UK, Germany, Brazil, USA, Russia, Japan as well as to many distribution centres across Europe and US.
Manuele Cavalli, Texa Co-Founder and Technical Director, says Texa’s solutions for connected vehicles and tele-mobility represent a further step towards the mobility of the future, which has the car at the core of the network, noting that the company’s goal is to offer increasingly high safety levels for drivers and vehicles and to create a customized service for any need.
‘’Interoute is unique and irreplaceable in many ways, and our collaboration is set to continue in the future and become even stronger: in parallel to the expansion of our offering throughout the world, there is a growing need for connectivity for these vast numbers of devices.
”We are confident that Interoute can respond with a solution designed for our specific needs, with the usual security and scalability that sets it apart”
Also commenting on the deal, Mark Lewis, EVP Communications & Connectivity, at Interoute, said: “We are proud to work closely with such an innovative company. For its global customer base, TEXA needs an integrated and fast digital platform that is reliable and secure, in order to ensure that its services are always one step ahead of the competition. This is a great example of how Interoute can provide the basis for international growth and success.”
Texa’s latest patent device, TEXA CARe which can be installed in a vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) socket, supports the personal safety of drivers by contacting a 24 hour operations centre in case of an accident, while also providing a direct line between drivers and workshops for communicating in real time about vehicle faults and malfunctions.
