CALLUP will introduce an Internet of Things (IoT) SIM Cards Management System at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) to be held February 27 – March 2, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain. The system, CALLUP IoT Engine, will be displayed at CALLUP’s booth (Hall 5, Stand 5E71).

The CALLUP IoT Engine can remotely manage the entire life cycle of SIM cards embedded in various devices, such as smart meters, home appliances, in-vehicle systems and personal devices (“things”) from activation, through various upgrades, to SIM card cancellation and swap.

CALLUP IoT Engine is an IoT-enhanced version of CALLUP SIM OTA system, which is utilized by various mobile operators worldwide. CALLUP IoT Engine includes unique features and interfaces, allowing easy integration with third party systems.

“The cellular world is evolving from phones to various devices and objects, and we are witnessing more and more connected devices in various environments, from homes to smart cities,” said Alon Roth, CALLUP’s CEO. “The innovative SIM cards management system that will help the expansion of the Internet of Things, including the deployment of IoT-dedicated networks.”

CALLUP IoT engine enables mobile operators and IoT network operators to issue control commands on SIM cards using rich API, or through a user interface. It can update any file on the card’s file system, provided it is allowed to be modified over the air. Status and reports can be collected in real time or as a request for report at a later time. The system will automatically repeat the update process on SIM cards that could not accept the original update for various reasons, such as devices that were turned off.
