Tripartite press release: MediaTek, Murata and Carota have announced today June 30th, 2021, the release of an OTA enabled NB-IoT solution. Carota’s one-stop FOTA (Firmware over-the-air) solution facilitates the update of the firmware’s versions and quickly fixes any potential security vulnerabilities for the released chips. Carota’s differential algorithms empowers the performing MT2625 chipset to successfully enter the Japanese, European and North American markets and is certificated by major mobile operators in their respective countries.
When it comes to OTA for automotive, a common perception is the addition of new features to the vehicle, in the same way as Tesla does. However, the range of possibilities is actually much wider. OTA is one of the main features for smart vehicles, and it can timely deliver a new driving experience and be used to diagnose and repair the vehicle’s faults, to ensure the vehicle’s safety through its life cycle.
The Firmware-Over-The-Air technology (FOTA) allows the download and update of firmware for specific in-vehicle electronic control unit (ECU). As the number of ECUs connected to T-BOX and IVI keep increasing, the contactless access to the vehicle components for its diagnostics and operating data can help automakers reduce their recall costs.
The release of the 5G network is going to open a new era of businesses for the Internet of Things and Taiwan Mobile aims to embrace the explosive growth of the IoT devices. Today, the company has announced an alliance with Carota to co-jointly launch the OTA (Over-The-Air) service management platform. The enterprise users can now fully take advantage of the various cloud applications, and seamlessly update their connected devices in a safe environment.
