DALLAS, Dec. 12, 2012

DALLAS, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* today announced it has selected
AirOn™ technology to enhance AT&T's single worldwide SIM solution for wireless
enabled global products. Through this new provisioning, manufacturers of
connected consumer and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices will have seamless
access to a global platform for service management, application development,
professional services and product support.

The AT&T single worldwide SIM solution along with a world-class service
management platform, AT&T Control Center powered by Jasper Wireless, equips
M2M and connected device service providers with the ability to manage global
wireless device deployment and operations across markets with advanced
diagnostic tools, smart process automation, and AT&T billing solutions. The
AirOn technology, provided by Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), is an end-to-end
solution that securely enables the management of subscription credentials on
embedded M2M SIMs over-the-air as an element of the AT&T system.

Where available, AT&T's single worldwide SIM solution, announced earlier this
year, will offer corporations the benefit of using a local or in-country
network while abroad, resulting in more effective distribution of their
connected consumer devices and (M2M) products. AT&T also offers global
wireless access in more than 200 countries through roaming agreements with
hundreds of carriers worldwide. These solutions eliminate the need for
manufacturers to broker multiple connectivity agreements of their own.

The AirOn technology offers device makers the ability to connect through one
SIM card around the world, with access to multiple mobile networks and
services. AT&T's subscription management system from G&D will handle switching
to a local subscription, as required, based on where the device is activated.

"With the introduction of our new single worldwide SIM solution and the
ability to provision over the air, we're giving our device makers the
convenience of coverage around the globe, while also enabling enhanced global
services like local telecom," said Chris Penrose, senior vice president,
emerging devices, AT&T.

"We're seeing a trend towards integrating SIM cards at an earlier point in the
value chain, when mobile devices are produced," said Dr. Klaus Vedder,
Giesecke & Devrient's Group Senior Vice President. "By utilizing AirOn
technology in its single SIM offering, AT&T will be able to supply customers
with the service flexibility they demand."

Today, device manufacturers across the globe are wirelessly enabling thousands
of new connected and M2M device applications in myriad industries, but their
basic, global deployment needs are the same: they require broad, readily
accessible wireless and mobile broadband coverage in each target market, and a
wireless single SIM solution suitable for scalable deployment across the world
markets.

AT&T is a global leader in providing M2M solutions that includes network,
specialized devices, connected device management, application development,
integration, professional services and lifecycle solutions management. Our M2M
solutions have enabled several of the world's largest device deployments by
remaining singularly focused on expanding global wireless coverage, adding
global-ready platforms and recruiting to acquire the right mix of global
expertise to support multi-national enterprise customers and consumer
electronics manufacturers.

AT&T offers world-class M2M device support and professional services to many
of the world's largest manufacturers and global exporters of wireless-enabled
equipment with more than 1,300 varieties of connected devices and labs
dedicated to bringing new devices to market, global roaming and integrated SIM
provisioning, billing and reporting tools.
