PSA Group to Equip Millions of Connected Cars with Gemalto M2M Solution
- LinqUs On-Demand Connectivity enables flexible subscription management over the entire vehicle lifecycle
- Streamlines logistics for global rollout of PSA Group connected cars

AMSTERDAM, Oct 18, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, has been chosen for factory-fitting PSA Group's next generation of connected cars with its LinqUs On-Demand Connectivity solution, aligned with GSMA specifications. This gives them complete flexibility over subscription management, which is crucial in view of the long automotive life-cycle. It also enables PSA Group to roll out an efficient tele-maintenance system to its connected vehicles with reduced operational costs, and ensure hassle-free updates for drivers. The joint effort will ultimately encompass all new vehicles produced by one of the largest European automobile manufacturer.

Gemalto's On-Demand Connectivity solution is based on its auto-grade Cinterion MIM, which can be deployed across all models and regions. This enables the automobile manufacturer to tailor connectivity packages to different customer and market requirements around the world, and to manage them with complete flexibility over the long automotive life-cycle.

With Gemalto's solution, PSA Group will be able to offer a rich mix of connected services such as communication between connected vehicles, sophisticated in-car infotainment, navigation and emergency assistance, sparing their customers the inconvenience of searching for a service station. Fleet management and software updates can be done remotely, so Peugeot, Citroen and DS dealerships can check vehicle health in advance and maximize up-time.

"This landmark contract reflects our long-term engagement with the automotive sector and we fully share and support PSA Group's progressive vision for the connected car," said Benoit Jouffrey, Vice President On-Demand Connectivity for Gemalto. "All mobile operators globally will reap the benefits of becoming key connectivity enablers for the Internet-of-Things."
