Materna und COMPRION vereinbaren Partnerschaft und unterstützen bei der Realisierung eSIM-basierter Projekte

Dortmund/Paderborn, 23. November 2017. Das international tätige IT-Dienstleistungsunternehmen Materna GmbH und der führende Anbieter von Testlösungen für die mobile Telekommunikation COMPRION kooperieren zukünftig im Bereich eSIM Consulting. Das Angebot richtet sich an Unternehmen, die durch die Einführung der eSIM-Technologie die Kosten ihrer mobilen Kommunikationsinfrastruktur reduzieren möchten, und gleichzeitig die Flexibilität haben möchten, den Netzbetreiber während des Betriebs zu wechseln. Hierfür bieten die Partner Beratungsleistungen, Workshops, Simulationsumgebungen und Lösungen für das Remote SIM Provisioning (RSP) in eSIM-basierten Umgebungen.

Ziel des herstellerunabhängigen Angebots ist es, Unternehmen auf die Nutzung der eSIM vorzubereiten sowie neue, zukunftssichere Geschäftsmodelle zu entwickeln und konkrete RSP-Anwendungen auf Basis der von Materna und COMPRION angebotenen Leistungen zu realisieren. Zielgruppen für die eSIM-Technologie sind beispielsweise Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), Hersteller von Internet of Things-Geräten, M2M-Systemanbieter (Machine-to-Machine-Kommunikation), Automobilzulieferer sowie Integratoren und OEMs.

GCF Validation of COMPRION GSMA SGP.23 RSP Device Tests Activates GCF Work Item 274

COMPRION first to provide GCF-listed RSP consumer device tests

Thanks to newly validated test cases on a COMPRION test platform, an important step forward was taken for the eUICC consumer devices ecosystem: Remote SIM Provisioning (RSP) testing for consumer devices becomes part of GCF’s Mobile Type Approval certification program.

The GSMA has been working hard to push forward the RSP functionality. A set of technical and test specifications has been created to enable reliable and globally interoperable services. “The technology is used to allow switching a device’s subscription from one mobile network operator (MNO) to another without swapping physical SIM cards. This is already possible with a limited number of devices – think of LTE-enabled Apple Watch Series 3 or variants of the Samsung Gear smartwatch – and selected service providers,” explains Dr. Frank Oberhokamp, Product Manager at COMPRION. In order to provide compliant and interoperable offerings, the device tests defined in the SGP.23 RSP Test Specification have been integrated into the conformance program of the Global Certification Forum (GCF) in the form of the new work item (WI) 274. WI RSP Device (LPAd) Conformance Testing contains a total of 92 test cases, 79 of which deemed as mission critical by the GSMA.

New Validated COMPRION GSMA TS.27 Test Cases Activate GCF WI-249

Mitteilung: 

100% of respective test cases have been validated and henceforth ensure conformity of terminals with GSMA standards for UICC-based NFC services.

During the recent GCF CAG#52 October meeting in Venice, the new work item 249 was activated. This was possible because 100% of the contained test cases were validated on COMPRION test systems. “The work item covers several technologies such as card emulation, Bearer Independent Protocol (BIP), general device support, and Android-specific device support,“ says Hajo Sandschneider, Marketing Director at COMPRION. “The referenced test cases are defined in the GSMA TS.27 NFC Handset Test Book. We are proud that 100% of the conformance test cases were validated by GCF so that work item 249 UICC based NFC Services (Rel-9) could be activated.” The new work item extends the test coverage for NFC-related conformance certification criteria in accordance with the conformance test cases defined in various chapters of the GSMA TS.27 document.

The newly added test cases reached 100% validation on the COMPRION UT³ Platform listed as TP 118. UT³ Platform is COMPRION's universal conformance platform for contact-based and contactless terminal testing.

COMPRION eUICC Profile Manager Supporting Phase Two of GSMA Specifications for Consumer Devices

Mitteilung: 

COMPRION’s modular tool for efficient eUICC life-cycle management now supports phase 2 of the GSMA specifications for consumer devices. Phase 2 of SGP.21 and SGP.22 will be the new basis for worldwide interoperability of Remote SIM Provisioning for consumer devices. The eUICC Profile Manager for phase 2 will be introduced at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The eUICC Profile Manager is a tool designed for mobile network operators, card manufacturers, system integrators, or service providers. Jens Christoph, Director for eUICC Test Solutions at COMPRION explains: “It helps engineers coding eUICC profiles to easily load the defined profile onto the card. As the tool is very convenient to use, it prepares the eUICC for further usage or testing.”
The software consists of two components. The Profile Loader can be used to load, enable, disable, or delete profiles of M2M or consumer device eUICCs. With the Profile Explorer option, users can scan and update already provisioned profiles using remote file and application management (RFM and RAM) procedures.

The eUICC Profile Manager is compliant to both – the latest version of the GSMA M2M specification SGP.02 V3.1 and the Consumer Device specification SGP.22 V2.0.
All relevant transport channels, secure channel protocols, and all subscription management servers of both GSMA eUICC realms are covered, which makes eUICC Profile Manager an essential all-round tool for anyone working with eUICCs.
