Today, December 16, 2019, Motrex Co.Ltd, the Korean in-car infotainment manufacturer company, and global IoT provider Telenor Connexion signed an agreement to connect and commercialize Motrex connected car solutions and fleet management.
Motrex manufactures and develops a range of automotive solutions that provides in-car safety information, driving data and passenger entertainment. For example, its parking assistance solution, Around View Monitor, displays navigation, messages and phone reception on the windscreen glass on a display. Its entertainment solutions provide videos and music on-demand, among other services that are designed to enhance the in-car experience for both drivers and passengers.
Until now Motrex have been providing their products to car manufacturing companies without providing network connectivity. After getting requests from end-users to support network functions they decided to look for a reliable partner.
Motrex CEO, Lee Hyung-hwan, says: “As a business provider who relies on connectivity, Telenor Connexion’s solutions are the best alternative available on the market today. They check every box of our needs, especially as a global player with competitive pricing.”
Using Telenor Connexion’s global managed connectivity Motrex will get access to more than 400 networks in 180 countries which will help create a seamless and safe experience for end-users. It will also create new business opportunities for Motrex, by enabling it to further expand its footprint into the global market as well as the B2C segment.
Founded in South Korea in 2001 Motrex specializes in creating innovative technical solutions with high-quality design. Today the company employs around 370 employees in more than 70 countries
Telenor Connexion CEO, Mats Lundquist, says: “Motrex is an innovative company within the highly-competitive connected automobile industry. We look forward to a great collaboration with Motrex and to help connect and expand its global operations into many new markets. APAC is one of Telenor Connexion’s most important regions. We recently expanded our local presence in South Korea to ensure we remain in the best position to help companies like Motrex to connect and expand globally.”
