Over-the-Air

Over-the-air (OTA) provisioning is the ability to download and manage content on a device over a cellular or wireless network. This applies to the over-the-air personalisation and life cycle management in the secure element in a mobile device. This process is commonly executed through the mediation of a Trusted Service Manager (TSM), employing cellular and wireless networks to reach the mobile device. Further information: EPC, GSMA
