Basking Ridge, N.J. & Austin, Texas -- Verizon Wireless, the leader in fourth generation (4G) networks, announced today it has selected Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, to provide an over-the-air (OTA) platform and LTE Universal Integrated Circuit Card (UICC) for the industry’s first Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband network. The platform and circuit card will help Verizon Wireless deliver a secure and reliable multimedia data connection, provide global roaming, and remotely add new UICC card applications and services on its 4G LTE wireless broadband network.

Verizon Wireless selected Gemalto for its OTA platform, which will help the wireless leader manage LTE devices on its 4G LTE network, as well as its UICC, a new innovative microprocessor smart card. The UICC will be used inside mobile devices to manage subscriber information exchange – such as transferring contacts and preferences from one device to another – while providing secure access to Verizon Wireless’ LTE network.

Kyle Malady, vice president of product development for Verizon Wireless, said, “As we build the global LTE ecosystem, we are bringing in partners who are best in their class and who have demonstrated the ability to bring products to market quickly. Gemalto fits the bill for its OTA platform and its UICC.”

Philippe Vallée, executive vice president of telecommunications for Gemalto, said, “We are very pleased Verizon Wireless chose us as a technology partner in the LTE OTA and UICC implementation, a significant industry milestone in the migration to all IP networks.”

By leveraging its 700 MHz spectrum for LTE deployment, Verizon Wireless is deploying a high quality wireless broadband network with excellent coverage and in-building penetration, all at a cost structure significantly below current levels.
