BERN, Switzerland -- Sicap, leader in Device Management and over-the–air SIM management announced today that its Device and SIM platforms now interact to trigger automatic SIM updates, uniting device capabilities and service profiles.

Interoperability between Device and SIM operations means for instance that when a customer changes his device, the automatic detection feature of the Device Management Center (DMC) checks its capabilities and subsequently triggers a message via OTA-SIM to update the subscriber SIM with the new service options. The whole sequence is handled seamlessly for the customer and in real time, so that new personalized features become immediately available. The potential for converged services is huge. DMC is already running on affiliate networks of virtually every major mobile operator group. Designed and built in-house on a sustainable framework, a single database can be shared for both Device and SIM platforms, with updates synchronized on the same hardware.

Operators can leverage the SIM to provide user-friendly and device-compatible service options. New self-care aids such as the dynamic SIM toolkit menu are made available through the IMEI tracking applet in a solution jointly developed by Sicap and Giesecke & Devrient, (G&D), the world’s second largest SIM card manufacturer. Markus Moser, Head of International Sales Systems and Services at G&D said “For end-users, perhaps the most visible of benefits is the ability to customize phone menus using options such as choice of language or filter settings to block unsolicited information”.
