APPLICATIONS AND BENEFITS OF UIM SMART CARDS EXPLORED DURING ONLINE EVENT ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2001

UIM Card Enables International Roaming and Delivers Value-added Services

WHAT:

The CDMA Development Group (CDG) will host an online interactive event exploring the role of user identity module (UIM) cards in CDMA networks. The CDG will be joined by representatives from Gemplus, a leading SIM card vendor, to discuss benefits and applications of UIM cards, also known as subscriber identity module (SIM) cards. UIM cards enable wireless consumers to securely transfer subscription identity to a phone by utilizing necessary frequency or technology. This allows the user to roam nationally or internationally and still have access to their home services.

Other topics that will be covered include an overview of the Asian market, as well as the interest this technology is gaining in the North and Latin American markets, and the increasingly important role of UIM in 3G networks worldwide.

WHO:

Pura Font, business development manager, CDMA Americas, and Gordon Beatty, senior technical engineer, both from Gemplus, will participate in the webcast hosted by the CDG. To register for the webcast, visit the Events Section of the CDG Web site at www.cdg.org.
