Validated COMPRION RSP Test Benches Support GSMA SGP.24 RSP Compliance Process

Mitteilung: 

The newly published GSMA SGP.24 RSP Compliance Process V2.0 now requires functional testing by industry certification schemes GCF, PTCRB, and GlobalPlatform. These certifications schemes are referencing validated COMPRION RSP test benches for conformance testing. COMPRION were the first to offer validated tests for the industry.

The GSMA SGP.24 RSP Compliance Process is the framework for proving functional compliance of an RSP consumer product. Conformance testing of the RSP functionality of an eUICC (also called eSIM) is now part of the GlobalPlatform certification program whereas eSIM devices such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables require GCF or PTCRB certification in order to be declared compliant to the GSMA Compliance Process.

Claus André Madsen, COMPRION Business Development Manager and chair of the RSP Certification Group within the GSMA, emphasizes the importance of the SGP.24 Compliance Process: “Product compliance is essential for ensuring interoperability within the GSMA RSP ecosystem, and the functional testing is key to demonstrate compliance of both: an eSIM and a device containing the eSIM.” Until now, functional compliance was demonstrated by the vendor’s own testing which is often a burden for the vendor. With the updated GSMA RSP Compliance Process, vendors can rely on COMPRION test benches. At the same time, mobile operators can rely on a consistent testing scope ensuring global interoperability.

Mitteilung: 

COMPRION introduces the SM-SR and SM-DP subscription managers at the MWC, by which MVNOs, service providers, and manufacturers of IoT devices with eSIMs can build their custom RSP infrastructure.

At the MWC, the world’s largest gathering for the mobile industry held in Barcelona, 26 February – 1 March 2018, COMPRION shows the newest products in the field of eSIM and Remote SIM Provisioning (RSP). COMPRION SM-SR (Subscription Manager – Secure Routing) and COMPRION SM-DP (Subscription Manager – Data Preparation) provide GSMA SGP.02-compliant functionality, enabling especially Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs), service providers, and manufacturers of mobile IoT devices with eSIMs, for example, from the areas of smart living, automotive, or logistics, to build their custom remote SIM provisioning environment and thereby maintain control over their soldered eSIMs.

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.

COMPRION Launches New Platform for Advanced Testing of M2M Remote SIM Provisioning Scenarios

Mitteilung: 

RSP M2M Test Platform is the name of the new COMPRION test solution enabling remote SIM provisioning (RSP) tests in a lab environment. Jens Christoph, in charge of eUICC M2M test solutions at COMPRION, explains, “The solution consists of a modular set of server simulations providing SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) interfaces. Thanks to its modularity, RSP M2M Test Platform can be used to test each entity of the RSP architecture: eUICCs, MNO, SM-DP and SM-SR servers, and also the devices carrying the eUICC”.
Embedded UICCs (eUICCs or eSIMs) can be tested when they are accessible, and even when they are soldered into a device. Thus, the solution can be used for a variety of RSP scenarios and entities, such as downloading, installing, enabling, disabling, or deleting profiles, changing the SM-SR server, or updating policy rules or connectivity parameters of a profile. “That way, the tester can ensure various aspects of RSP according to the GSMA requirements, and also perform functional and performance testing tasks”, says Christoph.
The flexibility of the setup allows users to take control of the server behavior as well as the details of the RSP procedures.
