Nothing makes SIM cards sound less glamourous than calling them Subscriber Identity Modules. But not only are they crucial parts of every mobile phone network, they are fabulously powerful. A computer within the computer that is your phone.
This Connected Devices SIG event, run in collaboration with the DCMS funded Best of British project, is aimed at anyone who works on building networks or devices. It will require a general knowledge of mobile technology but not specialist understanding of SIM cards.
SIMposium will look at how the SIM card has evolved, what private networks need to know when buying SIM cards and why 5G SIM cards are special. We’ll hear from developers producing applications to run on SIM cards and learn what it takes to make your own SIM cards.
And we will ask the question, “If the SIM dictates who owns the customer does the eSIM sound the death knell for the mobile operators?”.
Kindly hosted by Telet at their London office, this event is free to attend but places are strictly limited.
