Car connectivity management: smart and flexible with eSIM technology
The world is changing fast. And the automotive industry even faster. Digitalization and evolving mobility requirements bring new innovations to market. The driving force behind this revolution: car connectivity. But how do we make sure that the components we build today will be compliant with global regulations and the wider vehicle connectivity ecosystem of tomorrow? The answer is simple: eSIM management.
The connected car brings decisive change to the automotive industry. Automakers today are incorporating features into the vehicle that reach far beyond even the inventive imaginations of Carl Benz and Henry Ford. New worlds are opening up for drivers and passengers, enriching the consumer experience and above all the driving experience.
This brave new world also brings with it risks, as more and more vehicle components are managed electronically. What about hackers and security vulnerabilities? Awareness and fear of potential dangers are especially acute when it comes to the driverless, autonomous vehicle.
Though it’s still unclear when autonomous vehicles will be in widespread use, manufacturers the world over are already working to address these issues. Experimental vehicles, pilot programs, and tests have been deployed. And so far, one thing is clear: eSIM-based technology is one of the best ways to secure automotive IT. With eSIMs, OEMs can effectively deploy security and anti-hacking features and updates. And by doing so, reduce possible threats and impacts from external breaches.
