Telematics Control Unit (TCU)
A Paradigm Shift
The automotive industry is now at a critical intersection of technology where communication, information and control have become pervasive aspects of everyday life. HARMAN offers a Telematics Control Unit at three levels: 4G, 5G-ready and 5G to meet every manufacturer’s needs.

From 4G to 5G

New vehicles equipped with older technology will soon be impacted by network evolution. As such, automakers will need the ability to upgrade from 4G to 5G network connectivity after vehicle delivery to ensure sufficient customer satisfaction. With the first-to-market 5G-ready Telematics Control Unit (TCU), HARMAN allows users to upgrade from 4G to 5G connected experiences at a time of their choosing and enables real-world Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication, laying the groundwork for automated driving.
