• ITU allocates International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) ranges
• (IMSI) ranges are signified by the shared Mobile Country Code ‘901’
• This 901 code has no ties to any single country
• Global IMSI ranges enable ‘Global SIMs’, cross-border connectivity
• ‘Global SIMs’ important for enabling cross-border global M2M & IoT
connectivity, helping manufacturers to build once and sell anywhere.
Evolving technology, evolving use cases
• Global SIMs traditionally used for maritime and aerospace connectivity for
both satellite and cellular communications.
• Today, (MVNEs), (MVNOs) and (MNOs) are using ‘Global SIMs’ to
offer global connectivity to M2M and IoT industry players.
One World One Global Sim
Enabling Global M2M & IoT connectivity
Global SIMs are helping companies to expand IoT and M2M operations seamlessly across
countries and industry sectors.
Smart cities
Traffic control, emergency
services, smart energy devices.
Smart healthcare
Connecting healthcare devices,
providers, patients and insurers.
Smart logistics
Global product and
asset tracking.
Smart retail
Secure real-time payments
worldwide and digital signage.
Smart manufacturing
Tracking machines worldwide.
Smart utilities
Making electricity, gas and water
more efficient.
Smart automotive
Cross-border transport systems, fleet
management, emergency calls.
How it works, how providers benefit
• A SIM embedded in a device with 901 code is a ‘Global SIMS’
• Global IMSI ranges enable MVNEs/MVNOs to generate their own "Global SIMS“
• "Global SIMS" enable seamless deployment of M2M and IoT devices across countries
• Some benefits include:
Connected everywhere
Land, sea or air.
Global SIM advantage
• Build once, embed SIM in device,
avoid network failover.
Unified roaming rates
Single price for connectivity.
Greater flexibility
• One MNC for all countries.
• Mitigates lock-in
Connected
everywhere
Bodytrace’s weighing scales
use cellular technology for
data connectivity anywhere in
the world.
Global SIM
advantage
AeroMobile offers
in-flight calling
capability.
Unified roaming rates
Transatel’s SIM 901 is a
universal, network-agnostic
SIM card that enables users of
any device to connect to the
internet via cellular networks
(3G/LTE) at local conditions,
wherever they may be.
Real-time IoT
enabled analytics
across borders
SAP’s IoT Connect 365 is
enabling vehicle manufacturer
engine management systems
to monitor the operation of
their vehicles across
borders.
Some use cases for Global IMSI ranges
How to apply?
• The allocation of global IMSI ranges to ITU members is led by ITU-T Study Group 2
• Join ITU as an Associate or Sector Member order to be eligible to apply for an MNC
under a shared MCC 901
• Submit a formal application to the Director of the ITU Telecommunication
Standardization Bureau (TSB) for assignment of a shared MCC 901
• A formal reply will be received by the applicant within a 75 day period

Global IMSI ranges are assigned to organizations that satisfy the assignment criteria contained within Annex A of ITU-T Recommendation E.212 @ITU

Editor's Notes

  1. Good morning – First of all I would like to thank the organizers for putting together such a great event And the invitation to speak today. My name is Fred Werner… Share with you some thoughts on how MVNOs, MVNEs and MNOs might benefit from a global SIM, some interesting use cases and how to go about getting one. Before I do that I would like to make a quick introduction to ITU… What is ITU?
  2. ITU is the UN specialized agency for ICTs… We allocates radio spectrum and satellite orbits (ITU-R), Develop the technical standards that ensure networks and technologies seamlessly interconnect And helps t bring up ICT infrastructure of developing countries. We’re unique as the only UN agency with both member states and private sector and academia. Rather than tell you I would like to show you a short video that shows how our standards are at play in our digital lives
  3. So as you can see standards are everywhere… Standards allow us to speak a common language and without them things would simply not work. I have another presentation that covers what would happen if there were no standards that’s for another day… It would make a good disaster movie One thing that was NOT covered in the video is concept of Global SIM... Which is why we are here today? So what exactly is a global SIM, what is it good for and how does one go about getting one? In brief, we are offering non-geographic SIM capability (“Global SIMs”) - not homed to any one national market.
  4. Global SIMs are not new… They have been around since the 90s and traditionally been used for maritime and aerospace connectivity for both satellite and cellular communications. Today, Mobile Virtual Network Enablers (MVNEs), full Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are using global SIMs to offer global connectivity to M2M and IoT industry players.
  5. Another traditional use case has been with our UN partner OCHA In 2007, ITU allocated a global IMSI range to OCHA as an international identification system for ICT devices involved in coordinating relief efforts in the wake of disasters.
  6. So why would anyone need a Global SIM? Fresh interest in global IMSI ranges is now emerging from new industry players Smart vertical use cases: Hyundai example Insurance company
  7. - A global IMSI range enables non-geographic SIM capability (“Global SIMs”) - not homed to any one national market. - “Global SIMs” based on MNC under a Shared MCC 901 are used to create virtual global networks that span the numerous individual home networks and partner networks of a given carrier
  8. Some interesting use cases from ITU members… Bodytrace: weighing scales cellular technology for data connectivity. AeroMobile: offers in-flight calling capability. SAP: engine management systems to monitor vehicles across borders (Connected cars). Transatel: connect to the internet via cellular networks (3G/LTE) at local conditions anywhere.
  9. The allocation of global IMSI ranges to ITU members is led by ITU-T Study Group 2, the world’s foremost authority on international numbering. Application procedure Become an Associate member of ITU-T Study Group 2: Operational aspects (SG2) annual fee 10,600 Swiss Francs SG2 is the world’s foremost authority on international numbering. Submit an application for a global IMSI range (MNC under and MCC 901). Global IMSI ranges are assigned to organizations that satisfy the assignment criteria contained within Annex A of ITU-T Recommendation E.212. Applicants will receive a response within a 75 day period. A company must remain as a member for as long as it wishes to retain its assigned global IMSI range.
  10. So what kind of companies have applied? Mix of operators, MVNOs, MVNEs, etc… Very fortunate to have one of our members here to explain exactly How they use codes… More interested in real use cases than numbering codes. Title: “Breaking Borders” - enabling Seamless Cross Border Device Communications   Plintron, the world’s largest MVNA/E has aggressive plans to enable cross border communications and connectivity for its customers –especially in M2M/IOT ITU’s global E.212 MNC code under Global MCC, and global number resources are key to Plintron’s strategy Use cases for cross border communication are opening up all over the world and Plintron will be in a strong position to capitalize on the demand
  11. ITU-T Study Group 2: Operational aspects Study Group 2 is home to Recommendation ITU-T E.164, the numbering standard which has played a central role in shaping the telecom networks of today. ITU-T E.164 provides the structure and functionality of telephone numbers, and without it we would not be able to communicate internationally. In recent years SG2 has worked on ENUM, an Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) protocol for entering E.164 numbers into the Internet domain name system (DNS). An equally important product of SG2 is Recommendation ITU-T E.212 which describes a system to identify mobile devices as they move from network to network. International mobile subscriber identity (IMSI) is a critical part of the modern mobile telecoms system, allowing the identification of a roaming mobile terminal in a foreign network and subsequently the querying of the home network for subscription and billing information. SG2 also leads ITU’s work on standards in support of telecommunications for disaster relief/early warning, network resilience and recovery. Recommendation ITU-T E.106, International Emergency Preference Scheme for disaster relief operations (IEPS), specifies means of prioritizing calls in a disaster situation so that telecoms networks can be cleared of non-urgent calls.
