No More Poor Network As Nigerians Introduces New "Super SIM Card" by Newsprex(m): 12:59pm On May 24, 2018
The issue of poor quality service, use of multiple phones and porting from one network to another may soon be history in Nigeria’s technology space, if the Super Sim Card Innovation to be introduced by a team of researchers from University of Technology, Minna, becomes a reality.

The research work which started three years ago was commissioned and sponsored by the NCC to pave way for indigenous and novel technologies that could disrupt the existing technologies and also address problems in the industry.

The Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Technology, FUT Minna, Prof. Abdullahi Bala on Monday led a team of researchers comprising students and scientists from the university to present two technology innovation projects funded by the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC.

The NCC coughed out about N4.7 million for the two projects, Seamless Multiple Operator enabled SIM cards and mobile communication enabled walking stick.

They are designed to address the issue of subscribers using multiple phones and SIM cards due to poor quality of service. The project is particularly in keeping with the consideration for national roaming that is being promoted by the commission.

Presenting the novel devices, the Lead Researcher and Head, Department of Mechatronics Engineering , FUT Minna, Prof. Abiodun Aibinu explained that the first project, the Seamless Data and Voice Connection Over Multiple Operator enabled SIM Card allows a subscriber the opportunity of having one SIM card for all networks or one mobile phone with one SIM card for all networks.

Aibinu said that the innovation is a major disruption in the status quo ante of the Nigerian telecom landscape because the device with the SIM gets the signal of all available networks in a particular location.

He said: “We are talking about disrupting the ecosystem in the telecommunication industry in the sense that with just one SIM card, you can access the available networks without porting or buying multiple SIMS.

“People carry a lot of phones or SIMs these days as a result of poor quality service and the uncertainty of network strength of an area; so using basic engineering and the technology behind Mobile phone, we applied Artificial Intelligence, AI system to enable the device take intelligent decision on behalf of the user in switching from the network with poor quality service to another with better quality service.

“What this means is that immediately the product hits the market, subscribers would truly become kings as they can enjoy quality service even without having more than one phone.”

On the second innovation, development of Mobile Communication enabled walking stick, he also explained that the innovation is a mobile phone embedded walking stick designed to aid the user, especially the aged and the blind navigate through dangerous spots, and at the same time make calls when necessary.

Explaining why NCC threw money at the innovations, Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Prof Umar Danbatta said it was in keeping with the consideration for National Roaming Plan that the commission felt it would be worthy to give such innovations a trialDanabba, who was represented by one of the commission’s Executive Commissioners, Engr. Ubale Maska, commended the team for living up to its tasks of utilizing the N4.7million grant to innovate a disruptive technology that could enhance the existing quality of service in the country.

He contended that since the innovation is looking into the future it would be of immense benefit to the telecom industry because the industry is very dynamic.

It's just the new innovation of "Digital Walking Stick" and "Super SIM card" that will enable you use one SIM to operate all the four networks in Nigeria without buying multiple SIMs or porting.

Just read from the source, if you don't understand.

Nice innovation. But can one use more than one network at the same time in the SIM? I use more than one SIM not because of quality reception but what the network have to offer.
One for cheap calls the other for cheap data, the others incase they become cheap or for tweaks smiley
No one network have it all.

These sought of exciting things, we only read in the news. For it to hit the market or for you to purchase is another story. People behind this invention are already billionaires if its true.

It will be nice if this is not a VoIP based technology.

Developing a VoIP solution and assigning virtual numbers to the chip as well as integrating a billing app can do the same thing. Instead of relying on the network base stations for transmission, the relay service can be hosted on the cloud and same can be achieved.

It will be nice to see how this can be done differently outside the VoIP platform.

No, that's not how it works. If a lady is insisting on knowing where a guy got her number from.

1. She wants to know if she's save
2. She wants to know if it's not her ex that gave you her number. Maybe you guys wanna turn her to passover �
3. She wannna know if u're worth it

The effort will be crippled... I want to believe the inventors have had this idea too... But Sim producers, who r normally outsource will no longer make good sales, phone sells will drop too... And they think those people will sit back and watch them in 3d....? Story.

Start your dropshipping store and be the boss... You don't have to ship anything, all you do is sell, and reply orders to the original sellers and you make profit.. see how here

If someone cannot read that short piece let him wallow in ignorance.

If it's wizkid or premier league he would read pages and pages of it.

its a nice innovation but it won't work. it's going to crash the revenue of the network providers and I don't think they will fold their arms and allow such to happen.

At least let's be optimistic, this is how the developed world started. Let's solve our own problem. And put aside personal gains

That's a fairy tale, and which network recharge works on it, expecting to hear all networks! The fact that the research is been carried out by Nigerian University means its dead on arrival. undecided

Let's hope it sees the light of the day. I'm sure they'd be successful but with the way our darling country is being ran, I'm sure they'd soon throw a clog on their wheels.
Re: No More Poor Network As Nigerians Introduces New "Super SIM Card" by ybalogs(m): 5:53am On May 25, 2018
MTN, Glo, 9Mobile and Airtel will be all out to ensure this doesn't work. I sure know God pass them.

Seems nice. Don't think network coys will fold their arms and let this work out because it will greatly affect their revenue and you will all agree that the cost of running their coys is high most especially when they rely on diesel. So, they have genuine excuses to give to NCC to stop this from working.
