SK C&C, a global information and communication technology company and a leading mobile commerce service provider under the CorFire brand, today announced the shipment of its six millionth Near Field Communication (NFC) SIM card.
SK C&C is one of the few SIM providers to have achieved necessary certifications suitable for large commercial deployments, and over three million mobile subscribers securely pay with their phones thanks to SK C&C SIM cards. “SK C&C brings an unmatched level of expertise in SIM cards to support our NFC services across our LTE network", said Mr. Cho, VP Smart Devices, SK Telecom.
Additionally, SK C&C also announced that its NFC SIMs are now available in the US market. “Since 2011, SK C&C has been shipping NFC SIMs customized to carrier requirements” said Jean-Louis Carrara, VP Smart Telecom Solutions, SK C&C USA, “We are excited to make these products available to the US markets.”
