Where Does the SIM Evolve to in an Autonomous Car World?

With the rise of 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), vehicles will connect and exchange data with other vehicles, infrastructure, and consumers’ devices. M2M connectivity will drive this growth, inspired by the vision of autonomous cars, which includes vehicle-to-vehicle data communication and other connected car services.

eSIM technology enables carmakers to comply with the highest security levels and privacy needs as well as with performance and telecom legislation. eSIMs open new business models and allow carmakers to offer secure digital services that add extra value to their vehicles. They help build trust and strengthen the brand as OEMs offer seamless, enjoyable user experiences.

Attend our breakout session and learn why eSIM technology is the solution of choice. It provides a secure link from the vehicle to the cloud to transfer and store car data. Find out why eSIM is the trusted element and catalyst for securing digital identities. eSIM manages security credentials to ensure data privacy protection in future 5G networks and to cyber-protect V2X messaging.
