KT selected as operator of pilot project for setting up EV recharging system

South Korean mobile carrier KT announced Thursday that it has been chosen as an operator of the state-run Korean Environment Corporation’s (KECO’s) pilot project for establishing a comprehensive information system for electric vehicle (EV) recharging infrastructure nationwide.

KT plans to develop the comprehensive information system using such technologies as radio frequency identification (RFID), machine to machine (M2M), wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA), and the credit card payment system, and set up the system at the KECO by the end of this year.

KT was selected as the KECO’s pilot project operator as it has been accumulating extensive experiences and technologies in the EV-related sector. Earlier, KT had participated in Jeju Smart Grid Test-bed project, Seoul City’s EV sharing service enterprise, and the KECO’s project for providing wireless communications circuits and communication terminal equipment for EV rechargers.
