Korea Telecom (KT) selected Gemalto’s On-Demand Connectivity (ODC) platform and embedded SIM (eSIM) to deliver out-of-box connectivity to its Industrial IoT customers. This will enable the largest South Korean telecommunications provider to support all cars equipped with pre-embedded eSIM complete flexibility over subscription management, regardless of their country of origin. Gemalto hosts and maintains the IoT connectivity platform in its certified data centre. It’s compliant with the GSMA Remote SIM Provisioning specifications and it integrates with KT’s connected car platform called GiGA drive.
By combining the Gemalto’s remote subscription management platform with its eSIM, KT will be able to allow automobile manufacturers to provide in-vehicle connected services through GiGA drive and a single SIM, which can be remotely provisioned with the profile of a mobile operator once the car is shipped or at the end of a contract.
