SEATTLE, WA – September 17, 2009 – Airbiquity, a global leader in wireless connected services solutions, today announced the global availability of its VIAaq Managed Data Services Platform with active implementations in North America, Europe and Asia. Many of the services enabled by VIAaq will be showcased at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show on September 17-18th, 2009, in Frankfurt, Germany, along with the rest of Airbiquity’s robust suite of connected services solutions.

The roll-out comes at a time when automotive OEMs, PND manufactures and fleet managers worldwide are looking for new ways to create specialized solutions to satisfy the changing needs of their cost-conscious customers. The VIAaq Managed Data Services Platform enables the creation of programs that will not only be cost-effective but also improve the relationship between the supplier and end-user.

Automotive, PND and fleet partners wanting to differentiate their products through connectivity can now do so quickly using Airbiquity’s reliable, market-proven architecture and services.”
