Workz Group gains GSMA certification for eUICC software

Wednesday 8 August 2018 | 13:16 CET | News

Workz Group, a UAE-based mobile services and serialised software specialist, has become the Middle East and Africa’s (MEA) first manufacturer to be certified by the GSMA for production of embedded universal integrated circuit card (eUICC) software. The eUICC software is a key component in the Internet of Things (IoT) sector that will enable the remote management of devices over mobile networks. Workz becomes only the sixth manufacturer in the world to have this accreditation, it said. 

The certification of Workz as a eUICC manufacturer (otherwise known as EUM) by the GSMA followed a security audit of its Dubai SIM production and development centre, it added. The security accreditation awarded to Workz guarantees that its SIM chips are manufactured in compliance with international standards for compatibility, it said. 

The company currently employs over 250 full-time staff and last year manufactured over 1.5 billion telecom products such as SIM cards and scratch cards, in addition to providing over-the-air remote management services for SIMs and IoT devices. For the last two years, it has been recognised as the world’s largest recharge card manufacturer, it said.
