Baar, Switzerland: Teleena, a global enabler of IoT and MVNO solutions, recently selected Sicap Schweiz, a global provider of mobile software solutions, to be a supplier for the SIM OTA platform required to enable the over-the air update of subscribers’ SIM cards.
Sicap Schweiz won the Teleena tender which asked that the provider offers a comprehensive SIM OTA offering, to translate into a cost-effective multi-tenant solution to address the needs of Teleena for IoT and its existing MVNO customers.
The SIM OTA Appliance product line is based on Sicap’s SIM OTA Version 8.0 – a tried-and-tested software platform run by small to very large operators worldwide, over 15 years of operation. This flexible solution supports Remote File and Applet Management, enabling user cases such as updates of service provider names, preferred network lists and installed software applets.
“Sicap was selected by Teleena after a thorough technical and financial analysis. They show the ability to adapt their services exactly to our needs. This flexibility, understanding, speed of adaption and willingness to think as we do, convinced us that Sicap has the right company DNA for a positive match,” Ronald Weststrate, Director of Technology at Teleena says, “We are looking forward to the cooperation and long-term business relationship that lies ahead.”
Markus Doetsch, CEO of Sicap agrees, “We have designed the most competitive and cost efficient approach to deliver SIM-OTA services to MVNEs and MVNOs on the market with our recently launched SIM-OTA Appliance product line. We are very pleased that this SIM-OTA Appliance is such a good fit for Teleena! Sicap will support Teleena with remote file updates for Multi-IMSI applications as well as for the standard use cases”.
Teleena can now benefit from the significant cost optimisation for communication services by managing the subscriptions over-the-air on the SIM cards thus allowing subscribers to automatically register with dedicated subscriptions (IMSI) in partner networks.
