Zonal Architecture Solution

Design zonal architectures that adapt to changing needs

Build zonal networks that have the flexibility and resiliency to support diverse applications of mixed-criticality throughout vehicle lifetimes.

Dynamically adapt zonal networks at any time

Manage zonal network and vehicle service configurations from the cloud with lightweight policies to accommodate evolving needs for new in-vehicle applications and features.

Support diverse use cases

Optimize for mixed-critical applications

Topology and service aware provisioning allows critical traffic to be prioritized while ensuring flexibility to continually support new updates and changes.

Eliminate points of failure with built-in resiliency

Provision the network to handle link outages and reconfigure the network dynamically should such events occur, guaranteeing delivery of safety-critical messages.
