Recently, the global connected car hardware and software company Bright Box selected POST Telecom to provide the mobile infrastructure and managed connectivity for its “Remoto” connected car platform. Already connecting 700+ dealerships and 300,000+ cars, this new partnership enables Bright Box to offer many more connected car services. We will support Bright Box as they leverage our mobile connectivity to create an outstanding driving experience. This, in turn, will lead Bright Box to new business opportunities with automotive manufacturers who want to satisfy consumer demand for connected car services.
Why did Bright Box select us? What sets us apart from other leading M2M managed connectivity providers? Two things come immediately to mind…
• Virtually 100% coverage throughout Europe
• Many years of proven experience in managing connectivity
Drivers rely on the Remoto connected car platform to operate as needed — anytime, anywhere. Thus, ubiquitous connectivity and high quality coverage are essential to ensuring customer satisfaction. POST Telecom provides the widest coverage in Europe, virtually 100%. It is also unique in its ability to provide “M2M with no steering,” which enables continuous, uninterrupted coverage as vehicles cross borders or switch mobile networks.
Managed Connectivity Experience
As a pioneer in the connected car sector, we’ve been offering managed connectivity to automotive customers for many years. At this moment, we have close to 1.5 million connected and installed SIMs in an Automotive/Telematic environment. Through this experience, we’ve developed best-practice lifetime SIM card management, billing, provisioning and other services that we deliver through our state-of-the-art M2M managed connectivity control centre, which is powered by Jasper.
Now, we will provide Bright Box with highly secure mobile connectivity, as well as complete data and SIM card services. We’ll also work with them to develop new connected car related services, such as in car Wi-Fi hotspots.
Bright Box offers the industry’s leading turnkey connected car platform. And with POST Telecom set to manage connectivity, it can focus on this core business and develop next-generation features for Remoto. In addition, we’ve enabled Bright Box to include all roaming costs under the Remoto subscription.
Our partnership with Bright Box has created a very attractive option for automakers in Europe that want a turnkey solution for connected car services. If you’d like to find out how our Europe-wide mobile connectivity and M2M managed services can benefit your business, please contact me.
