Workz Group has officially launched Z-OTA, a competitive and flexible Over-The-Air (OTA) platform and value-added service (VAS). The advanced solution enables mobile network operators to remotely update their subscribers’ SIMs in the market and introduce new services without having to physically configure the card itself.
With the proliferation of LTE and introduction of 5G, operators now have the opportunity to offer more advanced services on the subscribers’ SIM card. Workz has introduced flexible pay-as-you-go, rent-to-buy and per campaign or SIM payment plans making OTA services more accessible to operators. The non-proprietary or open system will give greater flexibility to the operator when selecting SIM card vendors and provide easy hosting solutions that include cloud, dedicated secure server, and self-hosting options with the choice of self-management or a managed service.
Workz CEO Brad Taylor said: “As part of our long-term IoT strategy we’ve invested in our Z-OTA platform. With the explosion of connected devices, we’re continuously investing in our remote provisioning and routing to help operators, device manufacturers and service providers remotely update their devices. We’re in a good position to take advantage of IoT developments by offering the strongest, most innovative and most reliable solutions. We’re currently working with some of the region’s leading operators on pioneering new Over-The-Air projects and we’re very excited by what they will allow the operator to do.”
