M2M SIM modules are tiny, but robust and secure platforms

As an automotive manufacturer that needs to deliver effective, reliable connected car and autonomous driving services, you need to find the right balance between functionality and security.

The vehicle SIM modules you choose must be: robust enough to enable years of smooth operation; flexible enough to handle multiple services; and ready to support innovation in the future. In addition, you need the power to decide whether you want to take advantage of convenient, over-the-air eSIM profile updates using eSIM Management.

Hao Chen, Director Product Line Management Automotive/M2M, explains managing identities in connected cars.

Vehicle SIM modules by G+D

A reliable, trusted platform

G+D embedded vehicle SIM modules provide the reliable, trusted platform for the connected car ecosystem. Embedded during vehicle production, the blank SIM cards with an MFF2 form factor can be updated with local eSIM profiles over-the-air, in the field. This reduces the need for OEMs and parts suppliers to stock many different versions for use in multiple countries.

Vehicle SIMs must be updateable and operate reliably over the entire lifetime of the vehicle.

SIM hardware needs to resist vibrations and temperature extremes over many years.
