Connected cars are expected to account for over 90% of vehicle sales by 2024. Remote management of these connected cars using embedded vehicle telematics technology is becoming a priority for carmakers.

The eSIM M2M enables over-the-air updates of connected car subscription plans. With this technology, carmakers can simplify their logistics using a single eSIM component worldwide. They can also leverage this technology to optimize connectivity costs according to regions and swap fleets easily to the best connectivity partner.

IDEMIA’s GSMA-approved eSIM M2M, called DAKOTA Auto M2M, combines a secure automotive-grade hardware and an operating system (OS) that is able to host multiple mobile operator subscriptions. Integrated into the vehicle’s telematics control unit (TCU), DAKOTA Auto M2M has been designed to enable carmakers to remotely provision and manage car connectivity throughout the vehicle’s lifetime. Thanks to this connectivity, carmakers can enable mandatory emergency call services, get insightful data to improve the maintenance of vehicles, and securely perform software upgrades.

The latest generation of DAKOTA Auto M2M is compliant with the most recent GSMA specifications and is 5G-ready. This eSIM M2M ensures state-of-the-art security for the driver’s personal data with greater protection against call interceptions, fraud, and location tracking.
