Brazilian operator Claro picks dynamic sim option

Claro, the largest mobile operator in the Americas, has gone live with Evolving Systems’ DSA dynamic sim allocation products to help streamline its sim card supply chain logistics and optimise its telephone number inventory.

Evolving Systems provides software and services to the wireless, wireline and IP carrier market. The system was delivered in partnership with digital security firm Gemalto.

Claro chose to implement DSA following a stringent request for proposal process. This involved an industry-wide evaluation on functionality, flexibility and vendor experience.

“This win represents a key milestone in our emerging partnership,” said Rodrigo Serna, Gemalto’s vice president of telecoms for Latin America. “DSA will effectively enable Claro to continue its exponential growth and meet regulatory requirements, all while delivering an enhanced customer experience to the end-user. We are delighted to be working on this important project with Evolving Systems.”

As a result of Claro’s fast growth, and to comply with countrywide number utilisation regulations imposed by Anatel, Brazil’s telecoms regulator, Claro was faced with the urgent need to optimise its sim card provisioning process in a very short time frame. In addition, Claro has to operate under a regional numbering plan, which can be hampered when sim cards are pre-provisioned. Implementation of DSA will help address these issues.

“We are extremely pleased that, working alongside Gemalto, we have been able to bring the DSA solution into live production at Claro,” said Thad Dupper, Evolving Systems’ CEO and chairman.

“This success proves that the combined offering of Evolving Systems’ market leading technology and experience with Gemalto’s strong local presence represents a valuable business proposition for operators in the large and competitive Brazilian market.”
