Some exciting news has made its way into the SIM server space. Pakistan’s only SIM manufacturer, Kwick High Tech and Solutions, is now proposing a new biometric solution to mobile phone operators in the country to better help identity their customers.
This new system can reportedly communicate instantaneously with cellular companies’ data servers for the purpose of validating national identity card holders, one report divulges. Yesterday, The Express Tribune also reported that in addition to this, there is a module that can use the GPRS/EDGE service as an efficient communication channel, which can be deployed at such places as retail outlets to validate the customer against his or her Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC) – even before selling a SIM.
The report continues that apparently, ever since SIMs were banned from retail outlets in the country, the telecom regular had asked all mobile phone companies to work on devising a biometric solution for verifying the identity of its customers.
This system is reportedly slated to deploy no later than February 28, however, cell companies are still waiting for the final say-so’s regarding further procedures.
In other SIM news, SIM server solutions provider, iQsim, was last month awarded the 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award for its newly released Mobile Robot. This new open platform, Linux-based SIM server for MNO Quality of Service (QoS) testing serves as part of the company’s mobile automaton offering, providing an automated test execution platform for mobile networks. If this isn’t telling enough of this robust solution’s success, than we may never know what is.

- 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.
