As companies continue to grow their connected vehicle and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) portfolio, more corporations are looking to distinguish themselves from the competition. One of their strategies is joining OmniAir Consortium.
While customers are looking to deploy trusted communication devices, they are also looking for a simple way to cut through the hype. It is one thing to tell your client your product conforms to the standards, but another to prove it. OmniAir provides the third-party validation your customers are craving.
In 2017, OmniAir had an impressive 45 percent growth rate in membership. 2018 is starting off strong as we add two household names to our membership roster: Siemens and Sirius XM Satellite Radio. In addition, we have several companies that have completed their membership applications, including our first OEM! Stay tuned for that major announcement.
