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.

 

“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,” said Mr. Kangrim Choi, vice president & Head of Connected Car Business, KT. “Gemalto is a natural choice for us given its proven track record for its GSMA-certified solution. We believe that its out-of-box connectivity for IoT devices and our recent win to provide the 5G network powering the driverless shuttle at the Pangyo Zero City in South Korea will help us attain our goal of being a market leader in the new connected car era,”

 

“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,” said Sashidhar Thothadri, senior vice president, Mobile Services & IOT Asia

 

Gemalto. “We hope this collaboration will offer insights for OEMs and other mobile network operators to adopt such technology to drive the success of the Internet of Things.”
