When it comes to successful mobile network operation, the first critical step to be taken is performing complete, end-to-end quality of service (QoS) testing, which has essentially become a standard in today’s industry. QoS testing is vital before deploying a product in a large scale, and even then, it’s equally important to ensure that the service is delivered in full compliance with the expected functionality and service level agreement (SLA).
By putting a QoS platform in place, you’ll ensure that all of your network’s components run smoothly with mobile services. Additionally, mobile operators must make sure that they are implementing their QoS platforms in a multi-country environment, seeing how international roaming has become increasingly significant in SIM technology.
A recent iQsim whitepaper, “SIM Management for Mobile Testing,” elaborates on the importance of one solution that will optimize your mobile testing to do such things as fully monitor the mobile network for checking service level agreement (SLA) compliance as well as validate new mobile devices before selling them in bulk.
This is where iQsim’s IRON Suite solution comes into play. By offering its unique expertise on virtual SIM technology, IRON Suite enables SIM cards to be physically and geographically separated from their destination devices, which can then be deployed across several countries. Further, it only requires an IP connection, making the process even simpler than imagined.

Key benefits of iQsim’s IRON Suite solution for mobile testing include an intuitive Web interface associated with an XML API, an advanced price plan and tariffs configuration, multi-account and multi-user support, and synchronization with any test server.
With IRON Suite, the SIM cards are stored in SIM racks and are managed by the SIM manager, which, as mentioned, virtually allocates SIM cards to remote devices. Additionally, its intuitive Web interface and XML API make it much easier to synchronize with the central server. Further, integration with the test platform is extremely easy, as the test server boasts multiple test scenarios depending on the type of QoS coverage, and can be hosted in the central server or in the remote probe allowing stand-alone activity.
Even more, these test scenarios are compliant with the GRQ IR81 for full mobile service coverage, specific for a network monitoring process and mobile device testing.

- SIM Management for Mobile Termination
To offer better rates on local mobile networks, Internet Telephony Service Providers (ITSPs) have to optimize Call Termination costs and maximize SIM cards usage.
- SIM Management for M2M Platform Validation
The M2M solutions deployment is very complex and difficult to test and validate in the lab. Gateways and probes on-site deployment are subject to numerous constraints such as GSM 3G coverage, unexpected multi-operator roaming, international roaming, tariff and service restrictions.
- SIM Management for Mobile Testing
In order for a Mobile Network Operator to be successful, reduce churn and increase customer loyalty, the need to shift from testing network to perform a complete “end to end” QoS Testing has become obvious.
