ATT and Volvo Cars today announced they have entered into a new multi-year agreement to enable future Volvo vehicles in the U.S. and Canada with high speed wireless connectivity. Here's more info:
ATT is scheduled to power Volvo's US 2015 model year connected car solution with Sensus Connect, an embedded infotainment service. Volvo customers in the U.S. and Canada will also have access to Volvo On Call, a service allowing remote access to car functions and an emergency crash notification service. Volvo plans to enable cars with AT&T on-board for sale this summer.
AT&T already provides a variety of vehicle solutions to automobile manufacturers around the world. Volvo's solution incorporates AT&T's Single SIM platform to provide coverage in the U.S. and Canada.
The Single SIM, along with a strong service management platform, AT&T Control Center powered by Jasper Wireless, arms Volvo with the ability to manage wireless device deployment and operations across markets with advanced diagnostic tools and smart alerting.
