Teleca And OpenSynergy Announce New Partnership

Sep 8, 2011



Connected devices industry specialist and automotive software expert join forces to deliver superior user experience for In-Vehicle-Infotainment solutions.

Teleca, a world-leading supplier of solutions and services to the mobile and connected devices industries and the automotive software expert OpenSynergy GmbH today announced a strategic partnership. Tomi Rantakari, Senior Vice President, Automotive at Teleca and Stefaan Sonck Thiebaut, General Manager at Open Synergy, both welcomed the partnership as an ideal combination of complementary competencies. Teleca's long-lasting experience in software development for the connected and mobile devices industry in combination with OpenSynergy's expert know-how in automotive software will help customers build best-in-class In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems.

Teleca specializes in developing market leading In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems and works with all of the leading automotive platforms. The partnership will initially focus on Open Source Operating Systems where Teleca has ported both Android and MeeGo to leading automotive chipsets. OpenSynergy's COQOS platform establishes the missing link between high level operating systems such as Android and MeeGo and low-level automotive SW compliant with AUTOSAR. COQOS is a virtualization platform, separating vital functions such as fast system startup and real-time performance for safety-critical functions from Infotainment SW and thereby protecting it from attacks and security violations while still enabling the both SW domains to communicate through a firewall.

At recent industry events, OpenSynergy has already demonstrated a virtualized Android integrated with COQOS. Teleca and OpenSynergy have now partnered to develop a GENIVI compliant platform based on MeeGo, integrating the COQOS virtualization platform. This allows seamless integration of a GENIVI compliant Infotainment Platform with Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components compliant to the AUTOSAR Software Architecture Standard.

OpenSynergy's Managing Director Stefaan Sonck Thiebaut appreciates the Teleca partnership as it brings global scale to the COQOS offering. "The cooperation with Teleca provides our customers with scalable integration teams all over the world", says Sonck Thiebaut, "thus ensuring rapid deployment and optimization of COQOS according to customer needs."

"OpenSynergy with its COQOS platform offers leading software technology for the automotive industry that ideally complements our expertise in platform development and optimization for infotainment solutions." says Tomi Rantakari, Senior Vice President, Automotive at Teleca. "This partnership will allow customers to take advantage of our combined expertise to deliver superior automotive solutions for In-Vehicle-Infotainment."
