Avanci, the eminent pioneer in simplifying the sharing of technology, has officially announced the addition of Axxès to its esteemed Avanci Aftermarket program. Axxès, a prominent European trailblazer in electronic toll services, boasts a customer base exceeding 40,000 and over 300,000 equipped vehicles traversing the roads of Europe. Their integration into the Avanci Aftermarket program signifies a momentous development as over 40 patent holders have already licensed their indispensable 4G, 3G, and 2G patents through this platform.
The Avanci Aftermarket program offers licenses for connected products that are installed in vehicles post the original sale, thereby providing Axxès with seamless and transparent access to patented wireless technologies. This strategic collaboration is set to foster innovation in Europe’s interoperable and electronic toll collection market. Marianne Frydenlund, Vice President at Avanci, warmly welcomed Axxès into the program, lauding their dedication to driving innovation in the realm of electronic toll collection. This shared vision is aligned with Avanci’s core mission, which is to facilitate efficient licensing of patented technologies for automotive aftermarket devices. Moreover, the inclusion of Axxès reinforces Avanci’s upward trajectory in offering uncomplicated technology-sharing solutions across the automotive industry. As the Internet of Things continues to evolve, the company is committed to exploring licensing solutions for novel categories of connected products.
The advantages of electronic toll collection systems are manifold, ranging from streamlined toll collection processes to efficient data acquisition. The European Commission has been a strong proponent of the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS), which enables road users to pay tolls and charges seamlessly across the EU via a single EETS Service Provider and a solitary on-board unit. This capability, particularly for freight traffic, has the potential to significantly enhance operational efficiencies for road hauliers.
Frédéric Lepeintre, Chairman, and CEO of Axxès, expressed the company’s commitment to revolutionizing electronic toll collection for road hauliers. Axxès became the inaugural registered EETS provider in 2015, showcasing its forefront position in the domain. By meticulously selecting and implementing the most fitting technical solutions, Axxès aims to empower its customers in operating their businesses with utmost efficiency. The company’s dedication to providing smart and straightforward mobility solutions further underscores their commitment to driving innovation in the market. Becoming an Avanci licensee is expected to be instrumental in furthering their mission to deliver cutting-edge solutions to the market.
Avanci’s mission extends beyond the automotive industry, as the company continues to transform the landscape of technology sharing across various sectors. Their pioneering programs license essential patents, emanating from thousands of inventors across the globe, in a singular and comprehensive transaction at fixed rates, applicable for the lifetime of the product. This streamlined approach enables manufacturers, like Axxès, to seamlessly access patented cellular technologies employed in their aftermarket devices. Avanci Aftermarket stands as a testament to the company’s commitment to efficiency and transparency in technology-sharing, catalyzing progress and fostering a collaborative environment among innovators and technology providers.
