Robust embedded SIM developed for ERA-GLONASS
A new embedded SIM will be used in IoT modules developped for the ERA-GLONASS automatic emergency call system in use in Russia and the customs union.
An embedded SIM developed by Morpho has been successfully tested with Telit’s high performance 2G, 3G and 4G cellular IoT modules for deployment in an Emergency Road Assistance project in Russia.
The ERA-GLONASS (Emergency Road Assistance based on Global Navigation Satellite) project was launched to introduce a sensor-based in-vehicle emergency call system that in case of an accident automatically dials an emergency number linked to the nearest call centre or PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point). Parametric vehicle data along with location is sent to the local emergency services, meaning that the response can be faster, the size and scope of an incident can be assessed early and time can be saved in critical life-and-death situations. These life-saving measurements are made possible by the integration of a specialised embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card (eUICC) into the telematics control system of vehicles.
Morpho has been working closely with the IoT enabler Telit to test special robust eUICCs that are developed specifically for the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) sector and additionally implement ERA-GLONASS services. Extensive tests have now proven the seamless interoperability between Morpho’s ERA-GLONASS eUICC and Telit’s cellular IoT modules to ensure that the unique requirements of the system are achieved.
“For the automotive market, flexible and secure ways of connecting cars to networks are mandatory. Our embedded security products meet exactly these requirements and will enable a whole new set of services for customers,” explained Yves Portalier, Vice President and General Manager, Telecom Business Unit at Morpho. “With our expertise in digital security, Morpho actively supports initiatives to enable cars to become part of the Internet of Things.”
“Telit is ideally placed to meet the high-performance, multi-constellation requirements of ERA-GLONASS and the Russian OEM automotive and aftermarket sectors. In fact, besides having the broadest cellular IoT modules portfolio in the marketplace, the company markets a comprehensive range of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) modules that provide fast, accurate position fixes even in harsh environments and challenging urban areas,” said Felix Marchal, Chief Product Officer, Telit. “In addition, our GNSS offer is based on a winning combination of strategic partnerships with major chipset companies and our global manufacturing expertise.”
