February 9, 2015 by News Editor
Current projections indicate that by 2020, more than 120 million cars will be equipped with Ethernet connectivity, with the premium segment connecting up to 35 systems with Ethernet, and in mid-range vehicles, between 8-20 systems.

This article will show how Ethernet can meet the requirements of tomorrow’s vehicles and how it will shape the evolution of automotive networks over the next 5-10 years.
