Globetouch and Verizon Telematics are planning to launch upgraded network solutions that will be used by General Motors in connection with the continued global expansion of OnStar’s industry-leading connected vehicle services.
Globetouch will integrate its open platform GControl with OnStar to enable reliable, high-quality connectivity and regulatory compliance for OnStar services. Verizon Telematics will bring scale and network expertise to the solution.
It is known that Globetouch is a leader in global connectivity services for the connected car and the IoT.
