Global presence 

Switzerland is the country where the foundation for sicap was laid. As early as 1994 a small team of ingenious engineers from Switzerland’s leading telecommunications service provider, Swisscom, invented PPB technology. Network near Solutions, SIM OTA and Mobile Device Management have always been the core of company. In 2013, after almost 20 years Swisscom decided to sell Sicap to members of the former management. Sicap has a strong presence with an impressive list of customers featuring more than 80 MNOs globally. A large part of Sicap's highly skilled workforce for sales and delivery are based in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Abidjan, Moscow, Johannesburg, Delhi and Bucharest. Experts, based in Lyon, Zug, Moscow and Kolkata are responsible for continuing sicap's track record in developing pioneering solutions.

Customer experiences

Operators are looking to manage customer experiences. The start of every customer experience is in the customer’s own hands – the mobile device. Operators must know in real time of changes in their device base and instantly interact with the customers. Detect which device the user holds in his/her hands and serve their individual needs. The operator’s reaction can range from dynamically configuring the traditional SIM card the newer iSIM or eSIM to sending device settings for data, VoLTE or IPv6. Operators will want to upsell customers on a special rate plan for their new LTE phone according to the customer’s current location, which could be linked to LTE network coverage. Some of our customers use the system as a hub for all device information linking to BI infrastructure, call centers and self helps. One customer even changes the device specific tariff plan in the billing system when customers swap their phones from a Blackberry to iPhone over the weekend.
