Now Surf The Web In Your A8
For the first time ever Audi has presented a car which will be able to access content from the World Wide Web. With advancement in all fields of technology Audi has brought the entire web onto your car.
LTE Communication has teamed up with the four rings to present the new Audi A8. LTE communications supports fast online services and HD video. The Audi A8 was developed in collaboration with Alcatel-Lucent; the car’s mobile broadband connection that can transfer data faster than conventional 3G-technology and modern DSL connections.
The Audi A8 L with LTE technology contains the mobile communications technology of the future. LTE is considered the successor to the current 3G transmission technology, which also includes the UMTS mobile communications standard. LTE offers very high data transfer rates that can reach up to 100 Mbit per second. In comparison, a fast 3G connection offers about 14.4 Mbit per second.
With its short transfer rates, LTE mobile communications allow significantly faster access to Internet content and allow large amounts of data to be exchanged. For demonstration the technicians used the LTE connection for transmitting high-definition videos live to the vehicle.
“We will use LTE technology to extend our advantage in automotive networking and further consolidate the Audi connect strategy,” says Michael Dick, Audi Board Member for Technical Development, during the presentation of the prototype.
