Callup plans secured eSIM management launch at MWC
February 1, 2018
At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month, Israeli firm Callup plans to introduce a secured version of its eSIM remote management system for IoT, with two key network elements.
The elements are Subscription Manager Data Preparation (SM-DP) and Subscription Manager Secure Routing (SM-SR).
The IoT eSIM Engine allows cellular operators to upload their eSIM profile and to issue control commands to eSIMs embedded in M2M and IoT devices. This enables remote life cycle management of the eSIM from its activation, through upgrades and updates, until the eSIM is cancelled.
With the latest version’s SM-DP, operators who use the engine can securely encrypt their operator credentials ready for over the air installation within the eSIM card. The SM-SR allows the operators to deliver securely the encrypted credentials to the eSIM, and remotely manage eSIMs embedded in various devices, such as smart meters, home appliances, in-vehicle systems and personal devices.
“The new version of IoT eSIM Engine is an additional expansion of Callup’s activity in developing and providing innovations allowing connectivity to sophisticated devices,” said Alon Roth, Callup’s CEO. “IoT connectivity will greatly grow over the next few years, and we are committed to providing mobile operators with the best solutions allowing them to function optimally in this evolving market."
The IoT eSIM Engine supports the GSMA standard for subscription management, and all standard files of the eSIM IP multimedia services identity module (ISIM). In addition, it includes an advanced gui-configurable general OTA script that fits many cellular operators for the activation and swap of eSIMs. The product’s gui includes various functionalities, such as eSIM profile editing, card editing, and scenario and script editing.
The automatic report subscription system lets the operator’s executives and technical professionals subscribe to system reports and receive them directly to their email.
The system will automatically repeat the update process on eSIM 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.
Founded in 1999, Callup provides value added services and mobile device management. It is a subsidiary of the One1 Group, headquartered in Israel and listed on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
