STOCKHOLM, Sweden, June 16, 2009 – SmartTrust, a developer of Mobile Device Management (MDM) and SIM management software for mobile operators, today announced that Infotrust has joined the company’s certification program. Infotrust, a leading supplier of Integrated Circuit Cards, becomes the 22nd SIM card vendor to take advantage of this unique and valuable process.

Cards certified through the SmartTrust program support SmartTrust WibTM, a smart card-based application environment, and are fully interoperable with the SmartTrust OTA server, which helps wireless operators easily develop and rapidly deploy SIM-based value-added services to their subscribers. More than 1.6 billion SIM cards containing SmartTrust Wib have been manufactured and distributed.

Through SmartTrust’s certification program, smart card vendors ensure their implementations of SmartTrust Wib are compliant and supported by the SmartTrust Delivery Platform. Vendors must complete a battery of over 300 tests associated with SmartTrust Wib and GSM standards before a SIM card can achieve SmartTrust certified status.

“SmartTrust Wib is found on SIM cards around the world,” said Mr. James Hong, CTO, Infotrust. “Joining the SmartTrust Certified program will allow us to have our implementations thoroughly tested, giving our customers the assurance that our cards will be fully interoperable with their SmartTrust Wib-based applications deployed today and in the future.”

SIM cards with the SmartTrust Wib installed not only execute operator commands sent to the SIM over the air, but also allow operators to build and remotely maintain a portfolio of SIM-resident services designed around the SIM Toolkit (STK). The SmartTrust Wib specification has become the cornerstone of dynamic STK services including mobile banking, entertainment and subscriber self-care.

“The addition of Infotrust to our certification program further supports our desire to help deliver open and interoperable offerings that are compelling and useful in today’s competitive marketplace,” said Jeff Bork, CEO, SmartTrust. “Infotrust builds on our continued belief of giving service providers and handset makers access to a wide range of top-notch products and strengthens the position of SmartTrust Wib as the de facto industry standard for building and running dynamic STK services.”
