In last week’s blog The standard features in Telecom26’s global connectivity packages are far from standard, our global connectivity and maritime connectivity teams discussed five of the features that come as standard in our mobile service: OTA Encryption; Mutual Authentication; Multi-Factor Authentication; Network Function Virtualisation and Secure Connectivity.
In this blog we will examine five other features that are included:
- SIM Blocking
- Multi-IMSI support
- SIM jacker protection
- IMEI lock
APIs to drive integration and control
We provide a comprehensive suite of APIs that can be exposed to partners. Each interface is secured with TLS. The APIs include interfaces for the SIM management portal, SMSC, modems and routers, for example. Users – customers, service providers and others – can uses these to manage device fleets, obtain insights,
and manage messaging.
- Secure data transfer and transit
- Maintain data integrity
- Separate traffic and protect against DOS threats
SIM Blocking - Control SIMs in the field
Enterprise administrators can remotely block any SIM or eSIM used in any of the devices in the field. Once blocked, the SIM will be completely out of service and unavailable for any use, protecting against fraudulent or suspicious activities. Blocked SIMs can be unblocked at any time, with seamless restoration of service.
- Protect against fraudulent behaviour
- Instant control to respond to observed suspicious activities
- Global control and management
SIMjacker provides protection against common threats
SIMjacker attacks target remote SIM-enabled devices that run vulnerable SMS toolkit applications (such as the S@T browser) by sending fake (or manipulated) OTA message. They can seek to inject malicious code. Such attacks can expose private information or enable remote control of the devices in the field.
- Complete protection from SIMJacker attacks
- Active filtering of all illegitimate OTA messages
- Removal of vulnerable S@T browser application
Multi-IMSI Support - options to extend network connectivity
Each Telecom26 subscriber can utilise up to 8 different IMSI profiles to extend network connectivity options. Users can switch IMSI automatically via Telecom26, or manually via a dedicated application on the device.
- Use multiple SIM identities to access more networks
- Limit tracking possibilities and potential for attack
- IMSIs from Telecom26 Italy, UK, Netherlands, The Philippines, Chile, UAE, and Azerbaijan
IMEI lock to reduce fraud and theft
When the device identity (IMEI) registered with the SIM changes, Telecom26 can automatically block the SIM, preventing fraud. This means that stolen
SIMs cannot be used in other devices. The feature enables unblocking and also support legitimate device changes.
- Prevent unauthorised device changes
- Protect against fraud with real-time controls
- Effective control for your devices and SIMs
