During the campaign A1 Systems OTA-platform will be used to load the updated SIM-menu to Azercell subscribers’ SIM-cards.
The new SIM-menu, developed by A1 Systems, provides Azercell subscribers easy access to a variety of multimedia services, including music, games, java-video, pics, mobile dating services, quizzes, chat, etc.
The SIM-menu is updated remotely using the OTA-platform by A1 Systems. A1 Systems OTA-platform enables carriers to remotely manage the contents of their SIM-card menus: load to SIM-cards demanded applications and launch new services, without the need for the carrier to exchange SIM-cards or for subscribers to visit customer office.
During the campaign the menu update is planned for around 2 million of SIM-cards.
“An OTA-campaign sets strict requirements to the platform in use: both successful SIM-menu update and no excessive cellular network load are crucial for the OTA-campaign accomplishment,” said Ivan Evdokimov, Managing Director, A1 Systems. “We highly appreciate Azercell confidence in our company as reliable solution provider and their cooperation that helped us launch this project.”
“Azercell major principle is to make the life of our subscribers more vivid and bright by providing them a wide variety of opportunities. We are grateful to A1 Systems for their ongoing support in introducing new services for our subscribers,” commented Leila Mamedova, VAS Manager, Azercell.
