Sierra Wireless signs service contract with PSA Peugeot Citroën

Under the contract, PSA Peugeot Citroën will use Sierra Wireless device management services for the remote monitoring and software upgrade of future generations of cars equipped with Sierra Wireless-based telematics technology.

PSA Peugeot Citroën has collaborated with Wavecom (recently acquired by Sierra Wireless) on telematics solutions for more than ten years, and 600,000+ PSA cars currently on the road are equipped with telematics technology in one form or another.

As software features in cars becomes increasingly prevalent, the capacity for over-the-air remote monitoring and updating becomes essential. The Sierra Wireless device management services provide PSA Peugeot Citroën with the most efficient way to monitor and upgrade the software of vehicles in the field.

According to Emmanuel Walckenaer, Sierra Wireless senior vice president & general manager for Solutions & Services, cars typically have product life spans of ten – fifteen years, and with wireless connectivity becoming a standard feature, long-term maintenance and monitoring becomes necessary.
