SIMCom & MWC: Moving with the Trend of Ridesharing, Simcom Helps You Embrace the Future

Trends, principles and abilities come from the ancient Tao Te Jing Chinese philosophical classics. Trends can mean big trends in development and policies at all levels, i.e. market and government policies; principles can mean the strategy and direction of a company; abilities can mean abilities and technologies, with a view to constantly improve R & D technology, explore and accumulate practical strategies, and continue to update the required information technology and knowledge-based skills.


With the development of communication technology and mobile Internet, the ways people travel are gradually changing. Bike sharing, new energy car sharing and bus sharing have gradually become part of our lives. Yin Zhifang, the Vice Minister of the Strategic Planning Department of the Urban Traffic Research Center of the Ministry of Transportation, has described ridesharing as the third traffic revolution.

Innovative ways of urban travel


It has been discovered through ridesharing that the more people using ridesharing there are, the more likely they are to use public transport, and the fewer private car owners there are, the lower the transportation costs will be. Ridesharing can supplement public transport services and increase mobility, and there is no doubt that ridesharing will continue to grow significantly.


Sharing cannot be realized without a wireless communication module provided by SIMCom. Understanding that ridesharing is for the benefit of the nation and its people, SIMCom has focused on ridesharing from the beginning. Almost 80% of the shared bicycles in the Chinese market use SIMCom modules for intelligent locking and vehicle management. In terms of time-share rental cars, more than 56 time-share rental car dealers cooperate with SIMCom to serve their customers. SIMCom has a good customer base for shared cars, shared buses and smart payments, thus making it possible to bring excellent experience to tens of thousands of users.

It is foreseeable that integrated travel service is one of the development trends of the global public transport industry; all kinds of innovative ridesharing services are causing changes to daily modes of transportation; bus sharing will become the mainstream of the shared trip service in China and ‘on-demand’ services based on the open network platform are the basis for the healthy development of ridesharing. Of course, there are also a few shortcomings relating to ridesharing. For the convenience of people's daily lives brought by ridesharing, a social sharing order or ‘code of conduct’ should be established as soon as possible. The ridesharing industry is becoming intelligent and orderly, and managers and practitioners need to embrace the future with a more open mind.


As mentioned by a senior car sharing technical expert in the industry, ridesharing is the product of innovation in technology and the business model. Without good technology, innovation is long process. SIMCom has focused on the wireless communication module industry for 15 years. In the emerging ridesharing service, it discusses with customers about user requirements, solves the problems encountered in order to help their customers better serve users, and bring a better user experience and more customer interest.


The SIM7000E is Quad-Band LTE-FDD and Dual-Band GPRS/EDGE module solution in a LCC type which supports LTE CAT-M1(eMTC) and NB-IoT up to 375kbps data transfer. SIM7000E  supports FDD-LTE B3/B8/B20/B28 and GPRS/EDGE 900/1800MHz.


It has strong extension capability with rich interfaces including UART, USB2.0, GPIO etc. The module provides much flexibility and ease of integration for customer's application.


The package of SIM7000E is compatible with SIM900 and SIM800F. AT commands of SIM7000E are mostly compatible with SIM800F. This also minimizes the investments of customers, and enables a short time-to market.


It is designed for applications that need low latency, medium throughput data communication in a variety of radio propagation conditions. Due to the unique combination of performance, security and flexibility, this module is ideally suited for M2M applications, such as metering, telematics, asset tracking, remote monitoring , E-health , mobile pos terminals and sharing bike.
