Device Entitlement Service, DES, is the premier platform for managing GSMA RCC.14 and RCC.07, and Apple iOS devices. In the future, it will also support SailfishOS. DES is utilized by MNOs and MVNOs only.
Both DES, and our IoT DM platform share the same Trivore onePortal™ technology.
Trivore DES has a number of core functions to handle an entitlement framework:
• Device and subscriber authentication
• Authorization of device entitlements
• SMS-less Feature Registration
• Dynamic usage notifications
• Dynamic subscription notifications
• VoLTE Entitlement Management
• VoWiFi, and RCS Entitlement Management
• Service Entitlement Management for Non-SIM devices and custom applications
Trivore DES consists logically of two main sub-components, or server roles:
• The core DES component identified as the DES Server, hosts the main services needed to process the requests from devices, and support all required interfaces to the carrier’s platforms and back-end systems
• The DES Web Manager hosts the different management tools and the centralized data view of the Trivore DES deployment and configuration.
Within the sub-components, DES offers:
• Direct HTTPS-based interactions with iOS and Android devices
• Outbound provisioning — interacting with the carrier’s core network system to initiate/activate entitlements as needed
• Authentication function — leveraging information from the device’s USIM/ISIM and the carrier’s 3GPP AAA/HSS system on interacting with the carrier’s Subscriber Information and Profile database to obtain the entitlement status of devices.
• Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) interface to deliver Push Notifications related to configuration updates to iOS devices
• Flexible XML templates for service configuration data toward Android devices
• Websheet integration — allowing for close collaboration between Trivore DES and the mobile operator’s other servers associated with service configuration (for example, VoWiFi Location update)
