COMPRION is launching a new test system that eases the introduction of eSIM and RSP technology for enterprises
Many MNOs believe that in three to five years there will be hardly any devices holding traditional SIMs. To smoothen the switch to eSIM and the appertaining mechanisms, COMPRION has developed a new test system that is available at once. Using the new RSP Consumer Devices Platform, service providers, network operators, and manufacturers of servers, consumer devices, and eUICCs can test their real components against a simulated, GSMA-conforming system and thus make sure that remote SIM provisioning (RSP) works without hiccups.
How Does the New Test System Work?
RSP Consumer Devices Platform is software that emulates the consumer devices infrastructure defined by the GSMA in a test environment. The GSMA specified the infrastructure to consist of back-end servers (SM-DP+, SM-DS), eSIM, and mobile devices and also the communication interfaces to be used. “You can think of the new test solution as a pool of GSMA-conforming simulations of exactly these components and interfaces“, explains Dr. Frank Oberhokamp, eSIM and RSP expert at COMPRION. For example, network providers, who want to extend their business processes to include the new eSIM infrastructure, can test their adaptations against the simulated, GSMA-conforming system.
