LAS VEGAS and BASKING RIDGE, N.J. -- /PRNewswire/ -- From the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Gemalto announced the successful deployment of its newly integrated over-the-air (OTA) platform and Universal Integrated Circuit Card (UICC) for the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network.

  Gemalto delivered the OTA and UICC for Verizon Wireless' 38-market LTE network launch, which has already begun delivering 4G speeds to customers. This platform and circuit card will help Verizon Wireless deliver a secure and reliable multimedia data connection, provide global roaming capabilities, and remotely add new UICC applications and services on the 4G LTE wireless broadband network.

This UICC will be used inside mobile devices (initially USB modems for 4G mobile broadband) to manage subscriber information exchange, such as transferring contacts and preferences from one device to another, while at the same time providing secure access to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.  Gemalto's OTA LTE platform, an industry first, will help the wireless leader manage LTE devices on its 4G LTE network, allowing for high-speed, low-latency, personalized services.

The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network, launched in December 2010, is the fastest, most advanced 4G network in the United States, providing speeds up to 10 times faster than Verizon Wireless' 3G network. Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network currently reaches one-third of all Americans, with plans to expand the network to the company's entire 3G coverage area over the next three years.

Gemalto's OTA and UICC will be highlighted from Jan. 6-9 in Verizon Wireless' booth (#35216 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center) at CES.  For more information about the LTE Innovation Center and Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network, visit:
