Idemia provides SK Telecom with smartwatch eSim provisioning

Tuesday 20 November 2018 | 16:36 CET | News
Idemia was contracted to provide SK Telecom with a GSMA-compliant smart connect platform that will power what Idemia calls the first eSIM connected watch based on GSMA standards. Based on Idemia's Smart Connect Subscription management platform, also known as remote SIM provisioning, the technology remotely connects the eSIM of the smartwatch to SK Telecom's network without inserting a physical SIM card. This technology is compliant with the latest GSMA standards ensuring interoperability.
