Remote SIM Configuration: Keeping pace with an evolving ecosystem

Today, mobile ecosystems are rapidly evolving. They are quickly accumulating new applications in the quest to become more advanced. As a result, remote SIM configuration has become both more challenging and more important. An effective solution is vital to enable seamless updates either via the Short Message Service (SMS) or IP-based bearer. This process helps optimize the configuration data updates for SIM cards and enables the distribution of new SIM application updates and configuration settings to (U)SIMs which access these services.

Evolving Systems’ Over-The-Air (OTA) Platform delivers secure remote management of SIM files and applications, ensuring reliable updates occur efficiently and without impacting subscriber mobile services. It provides a cost-effective platform which has been designed to provide a secure OTA SIM card management solution for operators.

Evolving Systems’ OTA solution is a scalable future-proof platform built on a resilient microservices architecture using open RESTful APIs, leveraging quicker deployment times, and supporting traditional SMS channels as well as HTTPS. It is intuitive and easy to use, delivering flexible user management configuration, audit tracking, user authentication and configuration of SIM Toolkit (STK) menus with local support. The platform’s detailed reporting dashboard provides OTA activity reports including overall success rate of SIM OTA settings, delivery updates and error checking, with custom reports available through the UI framework.

Using the OTA Platform enables MNOs to address a variety of Use Cases, including:

  • Automated Network Prioritization – Adhere to regulatory requirements to ensure selected subscribers are provided network priority, for example in times of disaster or emergency situations.
  • Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN) Management – Maintenance of the PLMN and/or FPLMN file on the (U)SIM according to the latest roaming agreements (either domestic or foreign). This will help the operator optimize roaming revenues as well as enhancing network connectivity offerings.
  • Service Provider Name (SPN) – As mobile operators continue to innovate and revamp their branding, either in the form of a new digital mobile subscription, a new brand identity or even a differentiated premium service brand that provides loyalty benefits, this may require a change to the SPN, either in a batch SIM or an individual SIM update in real-time.
