TORONTO--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) - SmartTrust, a developer of Mobile Device Management (MDM) and SIM management software for mobile operators, announced that its advanced Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) management platform is being used by Bell Mobility to help the service provider enhance HSPA wireless services to its subscribers.

By using SmartAct™ Over-the-Air (OTA) SIM management software, Bell Mobility gains a single, SIM agnostic platform for managing an increasingly sophisticated wireless experience over an ever-evolving network.

"The ability to quickly manage SIM information over the air will help ensure the best wireless experience for our clients on Canada's largest and fastest mobile network."
