Digital Innovation Strategy

Vodafone’s new initiative is a step towards implementing the new DSA (Dynamic SIM Allocation) platform. This will enable SIM provisioning at point of sale and support varieties of subscriptions provided by VIL. The project is to be executed in two phases. The Phase I is a pilot implementation to support the SIMEX use case. DSA SIMs don’t have any pre or post division and are not specific to any circle. It removes geographical dependency of SIMs thereby improving utilization of numbers (MSISDN) by increasing network database efficiency/provisioning bandwidth and hence reducing cost. It develops a simplified SIM inventory that leads to logistics and supply chain efficiencies.
