IDEMIA’s 5G SIM card technology enables M1 subscribers in Singapore to take full advantage of M1’s 5G standalone (SA) network, offering faster speeds, better security and seamless 5G connectivity, as well as enhanced subscriber privacy protection.
IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, today announced that it is providing 5G IMSI encrypted SIM cards to Singapore’s leading telecommunications company M1 Limited to support the rollout of its standalone (SA) network launch. Since the launch of M1’s True 5G network through a market trial, M1 subscribers in Singapore have received a complimentary 5G SA SIM card as part of their 5G network subscription booster.
As part of this partnership, IDEMIA will supply M1 Limited with 5G SA SIM cards that store temporary connection keys to enable seamless re-authentication of the network in the event of a disruption – creating a more seamless connectivity experience. In addition, the SIM card is equipped with an IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) encryption feature that protects the sensitive data of M1 subscribers’. It is the first SIM designed to protect subscriber privacy – when connecting to the network, the IMSI number of the subscriber is encrypted within the SIM card, ensuring additional protection and security.
M1 subscribers will benefit from enhanced security, faster connectivity, and greater coverage.
