The Pravala Connected Vehicle Gateway is a software application that provides fast, secure and seamless connectivity from connected cars to the cloud.

Connected Vehicle Gateway Platform

The CVG intelligently selects and transparently switches to the best available or preferred connection, as the car moves along roadways – 3G/LTE, Wi-Fi or even DSRC. Additionally Pravala provides in-vehicle device management through the VehicleLink application that can be used to lower data costs by sending data over smartphones or by connecting to external Wi-Fi.

The automotive environment has some fundamental differences from a typical mobile device, including high rate of motion, major cost constraints, long lifecycles, and high levels of network contention, which makes the case for managed connectivity in the vehicle compelling.

Components

The Connected Vehicle Gateway acts as the communications hub for the vehicle, providing fast, reliable connectivity to on-board devices and passengers.

The CVG cloud anchors vehicles on to the Internet, making mobile as easy as operating on fixed networks.

The CVG management portal enables remote management and reporting of the CVG platform.
