Telef nica and Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) developed and successfully proved a secure, pre standard solution for remotely managing M2M SIMs subscription data.

A live test has proven the secure transfer of a subscription from Telefónica Spain to a Telefónica UK one over the air.

With this type of remote subscription management, device makers can manufacture devices with built-in M2M SIM cards. Secure profiles from MNOs can be loaded later in the supply chain, including post-sale, and their profiles can be revised during the lifetime of the device. It will, among others, allow a simple swapping of MNOs to support a change of subscription, a network upgrade or swap out, a change of device ownership or long term relocations.

The trial was carried out cooperation with Samsung and Telit Wireless Solutions.
