The newly published GSMA SGP.24 RSP Compliance Process V2.0 now requires functional testing by industry certification schemes GCF, PTCRB, and GlobalPlatform. These certifications schemes are referencing validated COMPRION RSP test benches for conformance testing. COMPRION were the first to offer validated tests for the industry.
The GSMA SGP.24 RSP Compliance Process is the framework for proving functional compliance of an RSP consumer product. Conformance testing of the RSP functionality of an eUICC (also called eSIM) is now part of the GlobalPlatform certification program whereas eSIM devices such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables require GCF or PTCRB certification in order to be declared compliant to the GSMA Compliance Process.
Claus André Madsen, COMPRION Business Development Manager and chair of the RSP Certification Group within the GSMA, emphasizes the importance of the SGP.24 Compliance Process: “Product compliance is essential for ensuring interoperability within the GSMA RSP ecosystem, and the functional testing is key to demonstrate compliance of both: an eSIM and a device containing the eSIM.” Until now, functional compliance was demonstrated by the vendor’s own testing which is often a burden for the vendor. With the updated GSMA RSP Compliance Process, vendors can rely on COMPRION test benches. At the same time, mobile operators can rely on a consistent testing scope ensuring global interoperability.
