Korea Telecom (KT) has selected Gemalto's On-Demand Connectivity (ODC) solution 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 solution in its certified data center. It is 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 solution 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.

Kangrim Choi, VP and Head of Connected Car Business, KT
Gemalto’s solutions will help strengthen our partnerships with 13 major automotive brands in 6 major countries to drive the adoption of our GiGA drive platform, as well as open doors for us to actively participate in upcoming connected car programs around the world. 

Sashidhar Thothadri, SVP, Mobile Services & IoT Asia Gemalto 
Adoption of eSIM and ODC will continue to grow as more OEMs use them to ensure that their connected devices deliver seamless connectivity while enabling convenience and new mobility services.
