A complete SIM card portfolio
Mobile communications have changed dramatically in the last 20 years and new, complex applications have been developed. A SIM card is no longer what it used to be, simply a token for providing identification to the network. It has become a lifestyle tool that meets many of the demands of daily life. Users can make payments with a SIM card or use it as a ticket. It is even possible to securely download multimedia files or take care of bank transactions with it.
In turn, this new complexity demands more security and coordination between devices. We also see many new form factors in addition to the classical Plug-in SIM card: microSD cards, soldered secure elements, Micro-SIMs and M2M SIMs have entered the scene. They are opening up completely new fields of application for the conventional SIM card.
