Major European cellular operator selects CALLUP’s SIM OTA platform to manage remotely more than 20m SIM cards
CALLUP, a provider of Value Added Services (VAS) and Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions for the telecom industry, has announced that a major cellular operator in a European country has selected CALLUP’s SIM OTA platform for remote management, over the air, of files and applets on SIM cards. The European operator manages more than 20 million subscribers’ SIM cards.
While shifting to LTE networks, mobile network operators often require an advanced SIM OTA platform to address their needs for taking complete control of their SIM cards and dongles by remote means. CALLUP’s SIM OTA platform remotely manages the entire SIM card life cycle – from activation of new accounts, through various upgrades and roaming updates, to SIM card cancellation and swap. Using a user-friendly interface that is SIM vendor agnostic, the SIM OTA comprises various features and capabilities, such as secure Remote File Management, Remote Applet Management, Steering of Roaming, Location Tracking, Welcome SMS, and other remote, over the air SIM operations.
“The European operator’s selection of CALLUP’s SIM OTA underscores our position as a provider of best-in-class value added services. It is a testament to the quality of our products and professionalism of our team. Our SIM OTA platform has proved itself to be a carrier grade, robust platform, selected over worthy competitors,” said Alon Roth, CALLUP’s CEO. “This deal further reflects the success of our proven products in addressing the needs of highly sophisticated mobile operators.”
A cost-effective solution, CALLUP’s SIM OTA includes a built-in Short Message Service Center (SMSC) to manage all the SIM OTA settings. The SIM OTA platform includes support for 4G cards, for OTA over HTTPS. Additional features – such as Steering of Roaming and location-based services, add value and provide the operator with excellent ROI.
SIM OTA includes a smart campaign management system that enables updating parameters remotely on all of the operator’s SIM cards. The system will automatically repeat the update process on SIM cards that could not accept the original update due to various reasons, such as devices that were turned off or subscribers who were in roaming.
Using SIM OTA, operators can create dynamic distribution lists based on various criteria, enabling the operators to update specific groups of cards according to the pre-defined parameters. In addition, SIM OTA enables online management of a single SIM card.
