Gemalto: China Mobile enters the connected car market with Gemalto's remote subscription management solution

Amsterdam, December 13, 2016
- Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security,
is supplying itsLinqUS On-Demand Connectivity(ODC) Subscription Management
solution and the GSMA compliantEmbedded SIMs(eSIMs) to China Mobile. The
operator is the world's largest telecom carrier with over 845 Million
subscribers[1], and the solution will enable secure connectivity for
connected cars. As a result, with China Mobile network, a new subscription
profile can be securely provisioned in any cars equipped with embedded SIM
and end users will enjoy "in-car "connected services throughout the
lifecycle of the car, such as infotainment, navigation support, safety or
vehicle diagnostic.

The connected car market is projected to be worth US$130 billion by 2021[2].
In the meantime, buyers are increasingly looking at value-added services as
an important criterion when choosing a new ride, and fuss-free and
high-quality connectivity will be an area of interest in years to come. Case
in point, data from a 2015 McKinsey survey suggest that 60% of Chinese car
owners would switch to another brand if they feel a competitor could offer
better connectivity. China sold 24.6 million cars in 2015, and became the
largest car market in the world. In such a competitive climate, automotive
makers will have to innovate in all aspects in order to distinguish
themselves from the rest.

Internet of Things is one of the most important growth drivers as China Mobile
transforms from being a mobile network operator to becoming a digital service
provider. The promise of IoT is immense.

"Today, Gemalto has deployed more than 20 On-Demand Connectivity solutions,
and
has executed at least 300 over-the-air (OTA) deployments around the globe
.We also have the largest portfolio of M2M and
IoT solutionsand services, including eSIM, which are compliant with the latest
GSMA
specifications
," said Suzanne Tong-Li, President, Greater China&Korea at Gemalto. "With such
rich experience and expertise, we believe we are in a sweet spot to
help operators like China Mobile make a successful leap to IoT
."
