TORONTO -- TELUS announced today it has chosen SmartTrust's advanced Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) and device management platform to help it introduce advanced offerings to its subscribers in the coming years.

SmartTrust, a developer of MDM and SIM management software for mobile operators, will provide TELUS, one of Canada's largest telecommunications companies, with a platform that will maintain a high level of reliability and performance on its just-launched 3G+ (HSPA+) wireless network and help the company move toward the use of a 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network. With SmartAct Over-the-Air (OTA) SIM management software, TELUS ensures that smartphones and virtually all other devices operating on its network will be recognized, correctly configured and optimized to the full extent of each device's specific potential and capability.

SmartTrust's Device Explorer allows TELUS to determine the compatibility of handsets, including non-TELUS devices, with its network. Ultimately, this solution helps operators increase customer satisfaction and reduce churn since subscribers can more easily use mobile devices on a network.

"SmartTrust pioneered OTA technology more than 10 years ago and has the deep experience necessary to understand our needs as we work to offer our customers the newest wireless services," said Andre Hassan, director of technology development, TELUS. "We're extremely comfortable working with SmartTrust. The company knows what it takes to help us smoothly introduce, as well as maintain, next-generation services on our HSPA+ network."
