Chinese Operator Selects Evolving Systems' Dynamic SIM Allocation(TM) Solution
ENGLEWOOD, CO, Oct 09, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
-- Enabling number choice and tariff selection directly through the
-- Allowing wider distribution of SIM cards to support marketing
-- Improving number efficiency and reducing network costs
Evolving Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVOL), a leading provider of strategic
solutions to telecom operators worldwide, today announced that a tier
1 operator in China has selected the Company's Dynamic SIM
Allocation(TM) (DSA) solution.
There were three main drivers behind the operator's decision to
select DSA. Most importantly, DSA will enable the operator to offer
number selection to its subscriber base. In a country where numbers
hold cultural significance, being able to select premium or vanity
numbers will provide a key differentiator.
DSA will allow the operator to significantly increase the supply of
SIM cards in the market, without incurring unnecessary costs, as
resources such as numbers and network space are only allocated when
the SIM card is first activated and used. This change in the
activation process will result in the operator achieving substantial
efficiency and cost savings.
Finally, DSA will introduce new flexibility into the operator's sales
channels. A dynamic interaction with the subscriber on first use can
be easily updated to introduce new products to the market, using SIM
cards already in retail outlets, saving time over existing methods.
DSA will allow the operator to distribute 'blank' SIM cards and the
subscriber will see menus displayed on their handset the first time
the SIM is inserted into the phone. Shown in their local language,
the menu will allow the subscriber to search for a preferred mobile
number and select a tariff plan.
"This is the fifth operator to select DSA in Asia, and the first in
China. China presents enormous potential for Evolving Systems and
DSA, and winning business here is strategically important to us,"
said Thad Dupper, CEO at Evolving Systems. "Our entry into the China
market resulted from operator generated interest in our DSA solution
and follows the success we have achieved in other major wireless
markets such as Brazil and Russia."
