  • Patent number: 11490245
    Abstract: Techniques for controlling software over-the-air (OTA) updates based on SIM eligibility for a device are discussed herein. The device may include a 5G SA capable device with 5G features that may not be enabled yet. To enable support for a new 5G feature, the system may update the SIM profile on the SIM card to indicate infrastructure support and the firmware to enable function calls for the new 5G feature. However, the SIM profile has to include infrastructure support before enabling function calls for the new 5G feature; otherwise, an incorrect firmware update may cause the device to cease functioning. The present system may include OTA components on a device server to connect with a network API on the carrier server and perform SIM profile checks before transmitting firmware updates to an OTA agent on the device.
