DETROIT – OnStar will use Madrid-based Telefónica Digital and Telefónica Multinational Solutions to provide mobile-to-mobile connectivity in support of its future expansion to markets outside of the United States, Canada and China.

OnStar will rely on Telefónica's extensive international GSM mobile standard network and its M2M automotive expertise to offer key services such as Automatic Crash Notification, Emergency Services, Turn-by-Turn Navigation, Diagnostics, Remote Mobile connectivity and more.

OnStar's connected mobility solutions are enabled by its Advanced Telematics Operating Management System. ATOMS is the most-powerful automotive cloud platform in the market today – connecting to more than 6 million OnStar customers globally.

'Earlier this year we announced that OnStar is growing its global footprint,' said Jon Hyde, director of OnStar Global Expansion. 'This partnership is one of the vital first steps in that process. Telefónica's expertise in the global mobility market will help ensure our mutual success as we move forward.'

The initial agreement, the length of which was undisclosed, focuses on offering current OnStar services. The agreement has the potential over time to include the development and creation of future offerings between the two companies.

'OnStar is, without doubt, the market leader in connected services for the automotive industry,' said Carlos Morales, Global M2M director at Telefónica Digital. 'Our global M2M offering as well as our own experience in the sector allows us to provide a top-quality M2M service.
