STMicroelectronics first to receive GMSA accreditation to produce eSIMs

Tuesday 26 June 2018 | 08:36 CET | News
STMicroelectronics (ST) announced that it's become the first manufacturer to be accredited by the GSMA for loading embedded SIM (eSIM) chips with connection credentials such as certificates and operator profiles before shipping. The eSIMs, customised with connection credentials, enable smaller form factors, greater security and increased flexibility, said ST, adding that it can now deliver personalized eSIMs, built around the proven ST33 secure microcontroller, directly to customers' production facilities, ready to use with no further programming required.
