IDEMIA, the leader in Identity Technologies, announced that it has supported SK Telecom, Korea’s largest telecommunications operator, in successfully migrating its consumer eSIM management platform to the Microsoft Azure public cloud. Completed at the end of June 2022, the migration is in line with the Korean government’s announcement that eSIM services for smartphones will be offered in the country beginning on September 1, 2022 onwards. sk telecom esim microsoft azure

Since 2018, IDEMIA has provided Smart Connect Consumer, its eSIM management platform for consumer devices to SK Telecom to cater to their eSIM-equipped smartwatch end-users. With eSIM services now expanded to smartphones, IDEMIA worked closely with SK Telecom for the migration of their eSIM management platform to the public cloud, enabling SK Telecom to leverage carrier-grade solutions to achieve scalability, availability, capacity, and security for their eSIM connectivity activities.

With the exponential growth of eSIM services and capabilities, immense computing power is required to deliver seamless connectivity, robust services, and a consistent user experience. We have been a trusted partner in SK Telecom’s eSIM journey since the beginning and are proud to continue supporting them in delivering the best possible eSIM experience to their smartphone users, even during peak activity periods, said Fabien Jautard, Group Executive Vice President, Connectivity Services at IDEMIA

With the public cloud migration, IDEMIA’s carrier-grade eSIM manager has geo-redundant architecture for traffic load balancing, dynamically adapts to traffic peaks, can handle large volumes of eSIM transactions, and has the most advanced security certifications and protection systems. 

The advent of eSIM services for smartphones in Korea is a very exciting smartphone milestone, and we have been working very closely with IDEMIA over the past year to ensure we were fully migrated and well-prepared to serve our subscribers upon launch. We have been very pleased with their stable eSIM platform and proactive support, and look forward to continuing this fruitful partnership as the eSIM connectivity market continues to grow in Korea and beyond, said Moon Kab-In, Vice President and Head of Smart Device Office at SKT.
