DoCoMo and BMW launch Japan’s first 5G and eSIM compatible connected car service

NTT Docomo and BMW announced that they will start offering Japan’s first connected car service compatible with 5G and eSIM from March 1, 2022 for the BMW iX and BMW i4 sold by BMW.

No need to connect via Bluetooth
Since 2018, the two companies have jointly developed a system that enables mobile communication by installing a 5G module and eSIM in a BMW vehicle. The BMW iX and BMW i4 are now compatible with DoCoMo’s one-number service as a connected car, and users can now use the phone number and rate plan they are using on their smartphones for voice calls and data communications on BMW vehicles.

This enables voice calls and internet communication in the car without connecting the smartphone and the BMW vehicle via Bluetooth. DoCoMo’s One Number Service is an optional service that allows you to share one phone number between your smartphone and accessory terminal, and use voice calls and data communications on the accessory terminal for 550 yen (tax included) per month.

5G high-speed data communication is available
BMW iX and BMW i4 vehicles have been equipped with eSIM for various services of the digital service “BMW Connected Drive” provided by BMW, but this eSIM is now equipped with another eSIM. A 5G module has been added.

With that sole purpose, I read many scientific papers from all over the world, and I met and talked with numerous experts in the field. How could I cure my father’s cancer? I searched every single possibility available.

That is when I found out about photoimmunotherapy that was only at an early stage of research. Although I had many doubts about this completely new approach, desperate for a miracle, I immediately went to meet the researcher.

Everyone was still doubtful at that stage. But the more I heard about this research, the more it made sense …
