1. A multi-channel communication terminal, the multi-channel communication terminal supporting at least two communication channels;

  • whereinthe first communication channel is established by a first service provider system, and configured to acquire subscriber identity information assigned by a remote server and providing service sharing; and

    the second communication channel is established by a second service provider system according to the subscriber identity information, and configured to acquire a service provided by the second service provider system;

    the multi-channel communication terminal further comprises;

    a first communication module;

    a second communication module; and

    a communication management unit, configured to;

    dynamically load, using the first communication module and over the first communication channel, the subscriber identity information assigned by the remote server; and

    acquire, using the second communication module and over the second communication channel, a service provided by the second service provider system;

    the communication management unit comprises;

    a first communication channel establishing unit, configured to communicate with the first service provider system using the first communication module, and establish the first communication channel;

    a SIM data loading unit, configured to send a service request to the remote server over the first communication channel, and acquire the subscriber identity information assigned by the remote server;

    an authentication calculating unit, configured to communicate, over the first communication channel, with the second service provider system and the remote server, and acquire an authentication result according to authentication request from the second service provider system, wherein, the authentication request comprises authentication data packet, which needs to be calculated by the SIM card, as containing random numbers and authentication keys; and

    a second communication channel establishing unit, configured to communicate with the second service provider system according to the subscriber identity information and the authentication result, and establish the second communication channel;

    wherein the service request comprises the location of the multi-channel communication terminal and a requested service type;
