G&D gets first order for auto roaming SIM cards

October 12, 2009 //

Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) has received the first order for its SIM cards with an auto roaming application which enables small or new mobile-phone companies to quickly provide extensive roaming services for their customers.


LONDON — Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) has received the first order for its SIM cards with an auto roaming application which enables small or new mobile-phone companies to quickly provide extensive roaming services for their customers.

Up to now, mobile-phone companies have had to conclude numerous roaming agreements with other network operators to enable their services to function in other parts of the world.

The order is from the Kuwait Telecommunications Company (KTC), the third-largest mobile service provider in Kuwait and a subsidiary of Saudi Telecom (STC).

With the auto roaming application, which G&D (Munich, Germany) offers for all Java SIM card types, KTC only has to negotiate an agreement with one other operator on the use of its roaming functions. KTC customers can thus benefit directly from this operator's many roaming partners.

"Our SIM cards with the Auto Roaming application accelerate our customers' access to the market considerably and enable them to operate worldwide at top speed. This is a crucial competitive advantage, explains Dr. Klaus Vedder, Head of the Telecommunications division at Giesecke & Devrient.
