(PM) Paderborn, 04.02.2016 - COMPRION has successfully attended the first GlobalPlatform TestFest that focused on testing the eUICC on-card interface and achieved qualification according to SGP.11 v2.0 based on SGP.02 v2.1 GSMA specification.
The GSMA introduced an initiative to define specifications for embedded SIMs (eUICCs). The goal is to provide a global standard for the remote provisioning and management of M2M connections, allowing the “over-the-air” provisioning of an initial operator subscription, and the subsequent change of subscriptions from one operator to another. A core specification (SGP.02) and a test specification (SGP.11) have been developed. Test validation will ensure that embedded SIMs can deliver robust, secure and ubiquitous connectivity.
GlobalPlatform is responsible for the qualification of the eUICC card interface as part of the test specification SGP.11. During the last TestFest in Lisbon, GlobalPlatform granted validation of the test (and core) specifications and qualifying test tools. In interface compliance testing, one entity of the interface is simulated and the counter entity is verified. The qualified COMPRION tests check if the remote provisioning of eUICCs, for example downloading the operator profile, works the way it should.
Kevin Gillick, Executive Director of GlobalPlatform, comments, “We congratulate COMPRION on receiving qualification for its eUICC interface tests. Alignment with the specifications, as verified by the GlobalPlatform Compliance Program, promotes market interoperability and ensures that products perform as expected once live in the field.“
