Data Collected
Asset Location, Connectivity Status, Number Of Connected Devices, Social Information, Vehicle Location Tracking
Operational Impact
  • [Data Management - Data Analysis]
    Cloud solutions enable aggregation of 'big data' to enable more robust analysis and lower costs.
  • [Process Optimization - Real Time Asset Tracking]
    The location of individuals and assets can be identified in near real-time which creates more port capacity and greater functionality for vehicles.
  • [Data Management - Cyber Security]
    Device/message authentication and message encryption can protect the car from malicious attacks.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Broadcom was able to cut power consumption by 30% and shrink the package size by half by moving from a 65 nm process node to a 28 nm silicon design.
