KDDI in Japan selects Gemalto's Connected cars and IoT solution
Solution includes remote subscription management and embedded SIM
Gartner forecasts that by 2020, there will be a quarter billion vehicles on the road with some form of wireless connectivity, making connected cars a major element of the Internet of Things. The lack of flexible and interoperable remote subscription management is a major challenge in deploying IoT. Gemalto's solution, based on global GSMA specifications, will simplify logistics for OEMs and automakers. LinqUs On-Demand Connectivity is integrated to several IoT connectivity platforms, offering utmost flexibility to KDDI.
"Gemalto has been our trusted partner for a long time, and has helped us launch many successful projects," said Keiichi Mori, Executive Officer, General Manager, IoT Business Development Division, Solution Business Sector at KDDI. "Their solution is based on interoperable GSMA standards, and will provide a common and consistent way to connect devices in the future. With long-lasting relationships with over 500 mobile operators worldwide and a strong local presence, they can help us expand our services to other IoT applications, to obtain rapid growth in the connected world."
"IoT is increasingly turning connected cars into powerful hubs for value-added services such as infotainment, real-time vehicle telematics, and usage-based insurance, offering plenty of opportunities to OEMs and service providers," said Michael Au, President South Asia and Japan at Gemalto. "With simplified subscription management, KDDI is strongly positioned alongside Japanese car manufacturers to take a lead in this relatively new market worldwide."
