SEATTLE, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Airbiquity, Inc., a global leader in connected vehicle services today released the latest version of its global cloud-based mobile integration solution – Choreo 5.0. Airbiquity's Choreo Service Delivery Platform has been significantly enhanced for 2013 with Choreo 5.0 now able to integrate practically any application into the vehicle, whether it comes from a smartphone or cloud-based streaming service.
"The scalability of this solution is unmatched in this industry, and a paradigm shift," said David Jumpa, Chief Revenue Officer, Airbiquity.

The Airbiquity solution provides a true Managed Service offering for today's leading OEMs." Jumpa added, "With the rising popularity of smartphones and cloud services as part of a personalized digital lifestyle, Airbiquity is pleased to offer OEMs a global, best-in-class solution coupled with a rich portfolio of available applications and content from a vast network of partners."
The largest global cloud-based solution of its kind, Choreo 5.0 guarantees compatibility with a wide range of content and service partners worldwide. These service partners and their combined abilities with Airbiquity are what differentiate Choreo 5.0 from anything else on the market. Airbiquity's network of communications partners, including Sprint, Vodafone, Telenor Connexion, and China Unicom enable a comprehensive end-to-end solution offer on a global scale as well. With the automaker in mind, this means a fully scalable and customized system that has global connectivity. An additional factor that differentiates Choreo 5.0 from anything else on the market is its ability to be scalable per region, brand, or model. This agnostic model allows for maximum service and more streamlined in-market reliability. The Choreo 5.0 Mobile Integration solution will be rolled out with 2 major automotive brands starting later in 2013.
"The continued evolution of the connected vehicle leads to growing innovations and business opportunities for automakers and many other industries," said Thilo Koslowski, Vice President and Automotive Practice Leader at Gartner, Inc.
