OMA Client Provisioning is a backwards compatible extension of the client provisioning functionality included in WAP 2.0. This version has added support for direct access (and WAP Proxy support) and application access provisioning. The OMA Client Provisioning Enabler enablers operators to send new settings over the air; after receiving the settings the customer simply saves them to the phone and is then able to use the service. For the operator, simplifying access to advanced services can bring higher usage rates, new revenue streams, and reduced customer helpline costs. MSAI provides a complete solution for the management of OTA, a solution that has been widely adopted by major Network Operators in India. Parameter provisioning includes Automatic configuration of handset for GPRS, WAP, MMS, email, APN, Bookmarks etc.
