TeleCable selects Oberthur for mobile device administration – Spain

TeleCable, a Spanish MVNO, has selected Oberthur, a provider of secure technologies, for the administration of its mobile devices (SIM cards and phones) using Over-the-Air (OTA) and device management platforms.

Oberthur Technologies’ SIM cards can be updated and managed with the help of an Application Loader and Manager platform in order to meet market requirements and offer top notch services to TeleCable’s customers. The Device Management platform enables automatic configuration of mobile handsets by insertion of a TeleCable USIM in the handset, which enables users to get access to a wide variety of services, such as WAP, MMS, SMS, GPRS and E-mail. This will help TeleCable to differentiate itself from the competition and also to increase its ARPU due to data traffic growth.

Commenting on the agreement, Juan Garcia-Conde, General Manager at TeleCable, said: “With Oberthur Technologies' tailor-made solutions, TeleCable can offer the best technology and a wide range of services to its clients while achieving time-to-market.”

Eric Duforest, Managing Director Europe, Card Systems Division at Oberthur Technologies, added: “The commitment and the collaboration of Oberthur Technologies' French and Spanish teams have enabled TeleCable's successful deployment. Anticipating upcoming services and new applications, Oberthur Technologies has reinforced its strategy to deliver an end-to-end offer, from cards to management solutions, in Spain. This partnership with TeleCable is part of Oberthur Technologies' ambition to deliver solutions to MVNOs.”
