Anonymization of data and enhanced experience for
clients in virtualized networks.

Secure authentication of the identity of mobile device users and of communications between mobile networks.

The 5G SIM card is a tamper-proof secure element to protect access to 5G networks, addressing all necessities of this wireless grid such as critical communications, massive deployment of IoT projects, and better broadband for internet browsing.

5G is predicted to reach 1.5 billion connections globally by 2025, according to a Junniper Research study, which will make this generation the fastest network to be implemented worldwide, surpassing the 4G network implementation.

The 5G network has higher bandwidth and network capacity as well as lower latency of its previous network generations. It has the potential to bring smart services closer than ever to the end user. 5G answers the Release 15, 16, 17 and higher for UICC (SIM) standards.

Data Privacy

Constant cyber-attacks on our highly-connected lifestyle pushes consumers, companies and governments to demand better data privacy regulations. With the 5G network, the power of data sharing will be tremendous and with it comes the need for more oversight regarding consumers’ personal information.

As a result, the mobile subscriber identity, the user identity for MNOs, is at risk. The IMSI, as it’s better known, makes it easier to track all mobile phones in a designated area and because of its cache, it is easier to access and collect user data. The IMSI should be full anonymized by the MNO in order to make the best use of 5G architecture. The new data privacy regulations such as GDPR in Europe, LGPD in Brazil or California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the USA, are imposing it on mobile operators as an industry standards.

The 5G SIM is a secure element used to protect the information of the mobile operators inside the consumer’s device, which includes the identity of the card, as well as the rest of the parameters that the mobile operator needs to store inside the card in a secure way.

Avoid cyber-attacks with LTKUP functionality

5G technology will bring a novel functionality in terms of prevention and management of cyberattacks. Operators will be able to remotely change or restore SIM card authentication credentials during their life cycle without having to physically change the SIM card in case its security is compromised. This functionality significantly improves the user experience in terms of reliability of preventing and resolving a cyber-attack.

Maintain the 5G network standard while in roaming

After experiencing the benefits of a new and powerful network, users won’t be happy with losing access to this new ultra speed network and having to work with a 4G or 3G grid while in roaming. Therefore, it is crucial that MNOs ensure a 5G roaming policy throughout the world, avoiding user experience issues and eliminating friction in their customers’ loyalty.

Improve customer satisfaction

One of the largest consumer complaints about wireless networks is its signal availability/reliability in the areas they need connectivity the most such as work zones and commute zones (to and from work), as well as festivals, events, shopping centers and beyond.

According to Telekom company, under ideal conditions, the 5G network will reach 10 gigabits per second, becoming the fastest wireless network available. 5G is even faster than Wi-Fi connections in some places.

5G low latency is crucial for autonomous and smart devices. Because data can be transmitted and a reaction triggered in real time, decisions can be made in fractions of a second, allowing autonomous cars, virtual reality services, edge computing and smart machine communications to reach its peak in the coming years.

Valid’s answer to this new demand is the mioSIM® 5G, a SIM card designed for the fifth network generation (5G) specializing in virtualized networks, offering higher security and enhancing mobile broadband for critical communications solutions.

5G SIM will give customers data anonymization and a trusted environment. The new Subscription Concealed Identifier (SUCI) prevents a malicious actor from tracking the mobile subscribers due to the 5G SIM card encrypting the subscriber identifier – IMSI encryption. This approach preserves the user’s data privacy, which is a high priority for consumers and providers today, while enhancing quality of experience and network resource optimization.

5G SIM guarantees the security of the data stored inside. By remotely changing the authentication algorithm inside the SIM, mobile operators now have a tool to fight cyber-attacks.

Mobile operators are now able to leverage the full power of 5G with advanced features related to cybersecurity, data privacy protection, QoS monitoring, network management, etc.
