RacoWireless Selected to Support the Next Generation of Audi connect®

RacoWireless today announced that it has been chosen to support Audi’s new lineup of 4G LTE connected vehicles in the Audi connect program. The news comes shortly after Audi and AT&T made headlines at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas by announcing a partnership to provide the first-to-market 4G LTE connected car in the U.S. with the all-new 2015 Audi A3 sedan, which comes to market this spring.

RacoWireless will continue its strong relationship with Audi of America to support its award-winning technology. Providing complete connectivity management, including 24/7/365 call center support, RacoWireless will work with AT&T to deliver the most immersive in-car infotainment system available.

“The momentum that we have been able to build with RacoWireless as a partner has been tremendous,” said Anupam Malhotra, Senior Manager, Connected Vehicles, Audi of America. “Audi connect continues to lead the industry when it comes to innovation, technology, and overall experience – and we expect that to continue.”

The new lineup of Audi A3 models will feature the most advanced platform and suite of services allowing motorists and passengers access to real-time information, voice navigation, and Wi-Fi® connectivity for up to eight devices. Using 4G LTE technology, the vehicles will be equipped with the fastest in-car experience available.

“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Audi of America and assist in powering the most innovative connected car program in the nation and the first-ever 4G LTE experience,” said John Horn, President of RacoWireless. “Working with AT&T to bring this solution to market will only help augment Audi’s position as the clear leader in the connected car space.”

While the new service is initially only available in the A3, Audi plans to roll out 4G LTE throughout its vehicle lineup in the coming years.

Eddie Meyersick, VP of Telematics, RacoWireless, added, “Providing the highest level of service is of utmost importance to our team. We look forward to supporting Audi and AT&T as they expand their reach.”
