Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR ENHANCED MOBILE DATA ROAMING AND CONNECTIVITY
Abstract:
System and methods are provided for provisioning mobile data services in mobile network systems. By taking advantage of a bifurcated authentication process, the systems and methods described herein provide data services to mobile devices without requiring a secure element such as a SIM card. This allows travelers to benefit from local data networks and services without having to purchase an additional SIM and or change their mobile phone numbers. In addition, these systems and methods allow mobile data users to take advantage of lower local data rates and avoid high roaming costs. Furthermore, these systems and methods provide networks with efficient techniques for servicing visiting/roaming users directly with mobile data without the unnecessary overhead associated with data roaming.
