As part of this engagement, the two companies will enable scalable Ethernet AVB/TSN (Audio-Video Bridging/Time-Sensitive Networking) and Secure Full Vehicle FOTA/SOTA (Firmware/Software Over-The-Air) Update solutions for automotive manufacturers and smart mobility companies.

Wipro will also join Excelfore as a member of the eSync Alliance, a multi-company initiative for establishing compatibility among devices with common FOTA/SOTA and diagnostics APIs and middleware.

These integrated solutions will enhance the connected car and autonomous driving experience along with accelerating the time to market for automotive OEMs and Tier 1 equipment makers, said Wipro.

Automotive OEMs seek to bring end-to-end secure networking solutions to market, with full vehicle over-the-air (OTA) updates at a global scale. Wipro’s partnership with Excelfore will enable the rapid deployment of these solutions in automobiles. 

Shrikant Acharya, CTO, Excelfore 
Creating scalable and secure end-to-end connectivity is not just a question of technologies, but behaviors and disciplines. A system level architectural approach is needed, which takes into account networks and hardware in the vehicle, services in the cloud, and mechanisms of rolling out updates to vehicles.
