Sim Browsing

(Commitments to the European Commission on licensing of patents and disclosure of OTA interoperability information)

 

Since its introduction in 2000, S@T has become a field-proven technology with significant deployments. The specifications are freely available from the SIM Alliance (no license fee) even for non members. New S@T specifications are released each year to address the latest in-the-field service challenges, and to aim at improving interoperability.

SIM Alliance has facilitated the widespread uptake of S@T in a multi-provider environment. This year SIM Alliance will put in place a "Certification Program" and develop a test suite to better guarantee interoperability of the various S@T browsers and Gateways. This certification program is freely available for S@T browsers of SIM Alliance members or non members (specifications freely available). This demonstrates the independence between the card and the Gateway provider’s implementation.

Its aim is to facilitate the interoperability of mobile services access gateways, browsers and their associated protocols.

Let’s then consider two different approaches.
