HID supports China Unicom
Year to date, HID Global has delivered 80,000 Omnikey 1021 desktop smart card reader units to China Unicom. With this smart card reader, the customer service staff can personalize a blank SIM card with a mobile number and other optional services on the spot. China Unicom has also reduced SIM card inventory levels by eliminating mobile number configuration on SIM cards. It is estimated that the total SIM card orders across the country will be decreased by 8 to 10 million per quarter.
HID’s Omnikey 1021 desktop smart card reader can quickly upload large amounts of data to SIM cards, which enables China Unicom to develop a series of personalized SIM card applications. Users can personalize the STK menu of their SIM cards and install applications during SIM card issuance, adding greater convenience to the users.
