Batelco, a leading telecom company in Bahrain and part of the Beyon Group, has partnered with auto major BMW to bring eSIM technology to the group’s latest models in Bahrain. The partnership will allow for seamless integration between the vehicle and the mobile network, ensuring connectivity at all times, even if the mobile device is left at home. The eSIM is embedded in the vehicle, allowing users to make calls and access the internet without needing a separate mobile device. Additionally, the eSIM is linked directly to the BMW ID of the customer and can be used in any enabled vehicle worldwide.
