USA based AT T says that it has won a contract to provide wireless connectivity to Volvo Cars sold in the USA and Canada.
AT&T 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.
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 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.
"We expect Volvo customers will be delighted to have these services on board, and we're committed to working with Volvo Cars to give their customers a unique and valuable service," said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, Emerging Devices, AT&T Mobility.
