Business Challenge

  • Modern mobile and financial services require smart (SIM) card-side software installation.
  • In case of GSM networks, the delivery of SIM card applications is performed over the SMS traffic, standardized in the scope of the SMPP (Short Message Peer-to-Peer) protocol.
  • Any massive deployment campaign across all of the cards of a mobile network operator requires a scalable and stable software solution based on the SMPP protocol.
  • A secure, cryptographic channel is required according to the industry standards.
  • The client of Infopulse needed a solution meeting all of the above requirements to be developed.
