Connected Cars

hiSky offers a revolutionary solution for in-vehicle NTN (Non-Terrestrial Network)
connectivity, combining cellular, Wi-Fi, and broadband satellite solutions to
enhance coverage and reliability for the next generation of vehicles.

Applications,
use cases & outlook

Analysist predict that by 2030 there will be more than 90 million connected cars in market. Tier 1 automakers define services capabilities requirement from narrowband to broadband services.

Narrowband

  • Telephony / E-calls
  • Road Safety
  • Remote Services

Wideband

  • Fleet Monitoring
  • Predictive Maintenance & Driver Diagnostics
  • Maps & Software Updates

Broadband

  • Entertainment systems
  • Video conferencing
  • Gaming

NTN seamless
connectivity

connected cars

Mass market deployment of connected vehicles primarily depends on cellular networks providing robust, high-speed connectivity. The connected cars agenda requires NTN as a secondary layer of connectivity as cellular planning does not include most road mass globally.

OEMs define that NTN solution are expected to provide basic safety and telemetry needs such as e-Call, road safety, and vehicle telematics, with infotainment as a premium service delivered over satellite.

The connected cars agenda relies on a global connectivity solution with per-region adaption abilities to comply with diverse governmental regulations applied in various regions.

hiSky’s In-Vehicle
NTN Solution

hiSky offers a revolutionary solution for in-vehicle NTN (Non-Terrestrial Network) connectivity, combining cellular, Wi-Fi, and broadband satellite solutions to enhance coverage and reliability for the next generation of vehicles.

hiSky’s proposal is based on the commercially available SmartelliteTM line of terminals. These field-proven ground terminals present a risk-free path for in- vehicle satellite terminals enabling constant connectivity over multi-orbit networks. With effective plans of further cost-reduction to fit the vehicle OEM market requirements, hiSky is supporting the connected cars agenda through R&D partnerships with tier 1 OEMs.

hiSky’s network architecture, with hardware and software agnostic to satellite networks, gives the OEMs their choice of GEO, MEO, and LEO constellations to base their connectivity on. hiSky’s ability to provide a multi-orbit solution from a singular terminal opens an additional layer of service compliance and efficiency unique to the hiSky network.

Solution overview

connected cars

When planning an NTN solution for connected cars the large quantities of vehicles that are expected to be connected simultaneously at every given area is a leading factor. Only high bandwidth satellite communication channels (Ku or Ka band) have the capacity to support millions of simultaneous connections. Other leading factors taken into consideration are the data rate per vehicle which will depend on network parameters, vehicle antenna size & weight, energy consumption, and satellite constellation.

With all factors still dynamic, the planning towards an in-vehicle satcom antenna for connected cars starts now as the 2028-2029 tier-1 models take final form.

hiSky’s innovative approach to in-vehicle NTN connectivity solutions offers a reliable, scalable, and cost-effective solution for vehicle manufacturers to enhance connectivity globally with fully connected fleets.
