Proof-of-Concept will improve the drivability and safety of vehicles.

Digital security company Gemalto has joined forces with China Telecom to develop a proof-of-concept for subscription management in connected cars.

The technology will be based upon Gemalto’s LinqUs On-Demand Connectivity (ODC) subscription management solution.

The companies are planning to integrate the ODC solution in vehicles, which will facilitate China Telecom’s automotive customers to offer instant connectivity on cars.

According to Gemalto, China is one of the world’s fastest-growing automotive markets, and it has high demand for advanced telemetric, navigation, and safety features in vehicles due to traffic congestion and other concerns such as driver safety.

The company said that with embedded SIMs driver would be able to enjoy a safe and enjoyable drive, and they will be able to choose or switch their service subscription according to their requirements.

China Telecom vice chief engineer Dr. Liu Yuan said: "Connected cars will form a major element of the Internet of Things (IoT).

"With an international standards organisation specifying a single, uniform remote provisioning architecture for embedded UICC, there will be no need for our customers to plan for unique subscription at the manufacturing level, or build device variants for different operators.
