Marvell, Harman collaborate on built-in Wi-Fi for Audi
Dunno whether it will be available in India ...
Marvell and Harman have cooperated to bring Wi-Fi connectivity into cars, and the 2010 Audi A8 is the first automobile to offer a factory-installed mobile hotspot.
The 2010 Audi A8 debuts Marvell and Harman's joint factory-installed mobile Wi-Fi hotspot solution. Dubbed the integrated Marvell Mobile Hotspot (MMH), the technology delivers the Internet into the vehicle through a built-in WLAN module, enabling high speed online and internet access via cellular link or Bluetooth connected mobile devices. It implements a full-featured, WLAN access point integrated entirely on a wireless chip. The technology integrated into Harman connectivity system realizes a full-featured local Wi-Fi mobile hotspot within the vehicle, giving passengers access to Web-based services. Up to eight devices can be supported, including smart phones, tablets, digital cameras, laptops and portable gaming devices.
Marvell's Wi-Fi software architecture is optimized for extremely low power consumption on battery-powered consumer electronics, enabling passengers to connect to the vehicle's network without affecting the battery life of their connected devices. MMH technology provides a secure Internet connection with standard 802.11 WPA2 authentication and data encryption mechanisms.
