Giesecke & Devrient’s (G&D) has come out with its triple SIM card which can help wireless operators to stock a single SIM card, instead of many different cards.


G&D’s triple SIM combines all form factors, from ID-1 (credit card format) to the classic plug-in format (2FF), through to the micro-SIM (3FF) and nano-SIM (4FF).

With this triple SIM card, mobile phone network operators can save a lot as it drastically reduces the resources needed for stocking SIMs, whether at their head office, distribution center or in stores, a statement said.

The same SIM card can be used in many different devices.


The nano-SIM is slightly thinner than the rest of the card body, thereby meeting ETSI standards. In addition, if a customer changes their device, the SIM can be adapted to the correct form factor.

At present, network operators have to stock different versions for each SIM card form factor, based on the individual electronic profile saved on the SIM chip.

“With G&D’s market-leading AirOn subscription management platform, network operators no longer have to worry about this problem, which significantly simplifies the SIM card ordering process,” says Carsten Ahrens, group senior vice president of the server software and services (3S) division at G&D.
