Truphone’s future-proof technology enables KIA’s connected car
Truphone has been selected by The Plan B Company to provide connectivity for KIA's connected car programme. The solution will be installed in several thousand cars across Europe in 2017, with more countries to follow.
Truphone's patented multi-IMSI eSIM technology paired with The Plan B Company's hardware and software will initially allow KIA's cars to provide car health information to the driver. Future phases will include location-based services, such as finding and paying for parking, and integration with other services like home appliances or partnerships with other suppliers.
Truphone delivers a unique global solution that feels local. One SIM, one network and one contract covers 220 countries. Our industry-leading IoT solution is built around three key elements:
- Truphone's unique global network infrastructure
- Truphone SIM
- Truphone's innovative central connectivity management platform.
The Plan B Company chose Truphone because of our unique global network and our innovative connectivity management platform. With us, they had the ease of dealing with a single supplier, rather than the hassle of multiple contracts with different operators. Our connectivity management platform provides real-time SIM usage, location and device information, with an automated rules engine, webhooks and REST API and fully configurable reports and notifications.
