3GSM World Congress, Cannes, 19 February 2002 – Gemplus, leader in smart cards solutions, today launches the S@T Developer Kit, a software development suite dedicated to operators and wireless applications developers who need to prototype, develop, test and implement SMS-based applications such as Wireless Corporate Applications, m-Commerce services and advertising.

Offering Value Added Services is proving to be the best way of retaining customers and generating new revenue streams. Operators are closely watching their bottom line and focused on realizing ROI and generating revenue. They need to look at creating the right services and ensuring they are delivered seamlessly to their subscribers. Relevant and innovative applications will be key in delivering revenue and reducing churn as the mobile market matures and moves toward 3G.

In response to this Gemplus has created the S@T Developer Kit, which provides a complete simulated GSM environment, including GSM network, SMS center and mobile phone simulator within the high end S@T infrastructure. This kit represents the first easy step to roll out OTA based services. It is part of Gemplus range of OTA products, GemXplore Suite and GemXplore Online.

The S@T Developer Kit enables any developers to create S@T mobile services based on mark up language without any experience in smart card technology or GSM network. The environment is very easy to install on a standalone PC. The main functionality is to generate S@TML pages and testing them on a simulated network and handset using a real S@T enabled SIM card.

Application Development

Gemplus offers broad options for application development. Working primarily with open, Java-based operating systems, applications can be supplied by more people than ever before, either by ourselves, operators or partners.

We provide developers with tools to create Java Card applications for GSM, 3G, CDMA which can be loaded onto our GemXplore ‘Xpresso cards. We also allow supply software to content providers to help them develop mobile user-interfaces for accessing mobile Internet-like content via the S@T micro-browser found on our smart cards.

This offer forms part of Gemplus’ ARPU Factory, the industry’s most comprehensive platform of solutions, a series of interworking solutions designed to reduce operator costs, reduce churn and enhance the relationship with the end-user. It is through these solutions that operators will be able to increase their ARPU while offering a secure and improved service to their subscribers.

· S@T enabled SIM cards with a sample service inside
