Oberthur Technologies, a global provider of security and identification solutions and services based on smart-card technologies, inked a key partnership agreement with Interop Technologies that allows it to integrate Interop’s CDMA OTA provisioning platform into its broader OTA management solution for CDMA carriers. ? ?
Oberthur currently supports GSM operators with its Application Loader and Management (ALM) solution, a field-hardened SIM OTA management platform deployed in 2G and 3G networks.
