The RCATS Mobile Identity (MI) ServerTM lets service providers automatically load and test multiple SIM cards into geographically dispersed Remote Test Probes from a central location. Designed for lights out operation in remote locations with support for downloadable remote SW upgrades, administration, and configuration.
The Mobile Identity ServerTM allows the rapid, automated testing of wireless voice, data, and messaging services using multiple SIMs. For wireless phones using GSM, GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA, LTE, or VoLTE technologies, the SIM is the unique identity of the phone. It represents important information that discriminates one subscriber from another and also determines which features each subscriber can access on the wireless network.
With a solution that provides real-time, network-wide performance and availability information that also eliminates the need to physically send SIMs and technicians to each location, service providers can deliver the quality of service their customers expect, in order to attract and retain subscribers, increase revenues and reduce costs.
