Transatel announces FCA telematics deal

Technology firm Transatel has signed a deal to provide mobile network services for Fiat Chrysler (FCA).

FCA has launched a new on-board telematics unit under its Mopar Connect brand, which will provide apps and services such as fleet management, remote control, predictive maintenance, crash assistance and stolen vehicle tracking services.

Transatel is providing FCA with machine-to-machine connectivity for Mopar in the EU. Transatel provides Mopar with its mobile network operator profile based on its SIM 901 technology. The profile is on-boarded onto FCA’s eSIM cards to guarantee connectivity services with a private APN and secure authentication, as well as to provide a complete connectivity management platform.

Philippe Vigneau, VP business development at Transatel, said: “We enjoyed working from a blank page to design the ideal solution for FCA.” FCA has fully understood our value proposition in providing a global, flexible and agile connectivity solution.

“We hope that this is the beginning for the development of a greater partnership with FCA.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to prove that we are one of the very few telecom companies today truly able to take on global connected car projects, thanks to the mobile operator-agnostic nature of our solution.

“Our clients integrate once to deploy globally.”
