Qlink have announced a partnership with Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer Cenntro Auto. The agreement will see Qlink’s BaseStation installed in new automotives, allowing for data transmission and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) services. Vehicles will be registered as telecom assets on the NEO Blockchain with data being billed through Qlink.
Qlink, who are building a blockchain based decentralized mobile network, plan to release their BaseStations in Q4 of 2018. The BaseStation will create 4G and Wi-Fi coverage, allowing any user to contribute to the network through decentralized infrastructure. It will be available in regular and vehicle mounted models.
Cenntro Automotive Group is a global technology company that operates a “Co-op” automotive manufacturing platform, providing a full spectrum of electric vehicle technology, development, and supply chain services. This platform innovates the vehicle manufacturing industry by decentralizing the automotive value chain, creating an ecosystem of resources that collaborate to design, build and sell vehicles.
Wang Zuguang, one of the founders of Cenntro was the founding member of Unitech Telecom, which later re-branded to UTStarcom. UTStarcom is a global telecom infrastructure provider, focused on delivering innovative carrier-class broadband transport and access (both Wi-Fi and fixed line) products and solutions. UTStarcom was founded in 1991 and began trading on the NASDAQ in 2000.
Allen Li, CEO and chief architect of Qlink says, “Cenntro is the ideal partner for Qlink to develop and launch IoV services. Vehicles are as indispensable as telecom services in our modern lives. Closely combining the two will build a smarter transportation structure for the future.”
