Quectel Wireless Solutions has been collaborating with Marelli on a broad range of projects over the last five years. Quectel has supported Marelli’s migration from its existing network access device (NAD) and this was followed by important business awarded to Marelli by two European automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) which use Quectel’s AG35 LTE-NAD. The first of these will achieve start of production (SOP) this year.

In addition, Marelli and Quectel have established a joint basis to advance work on 5G and cellular vehicle-to-x (C-V2X) platforms. The two companies have also enabled evolved LTE connectivity utilizing the Quectel AG520R and AG55xQ platforms. The relationship, which is Quectel’s first with an automotive industry customer outside China, enables both companies to be fully-prepared for requests for quotes (RFQs).

Dominikus Hierl, SVP Sales at Quectel Wireless Solutions expects to see production scheduled to start later this year.

According top Wisea Wu, Head of Marelli Electronics BU in China, Quectel connectivity systems “are important elements for Marelli Telematic Boxes to enable advanced functions, services and applications for carmakers.”

“Quectel supports Marelli in its multi-level approach, from 4G and 5G technology, to cybersecurity software and hrdqwre, up to future V2X communication protocols, aimed at empowering communication systems in the car and to maximize user experience and safety onboard.”
