1. A subscriber identity module (SIM)-based service sharing system, comprising:

  • at least one SIM card read-and-write device, configured to simulate a read-and-write process performed by a local user equipment of a SIM card providing service sharing to a physical SIM card, wherein at least one SIM card providing service is insertable in the at least one SIM card read-and-write device;

    a SIM scheduling management system configured to select appropriate SIM from the at least one SIM card inserted in the at least one SIM card read-and-write device according to the location of a user equipment and the type of a service requested by a subscriber, and assign the appropriate SIM to the subscriber; and

    at least one multi-channel communication, configured to communicate with the SIM scheduling management system to acquire the appropriate SIM assigned by the SIM scheduling management system, and communicate with a service provider system corresponding to the appropriate SIM assigned by the SIM scheduling management system to acquire the service requested by the subscriber;

    wherein the appropriate SIM is a smart card having the SIM function or SIM data;

    the SIM scheduling management system comprises;

    a SIM database configured to store SIM data on the at least one SIM card of the at least one SIM card read-and-write device;

    a subscriber access unit configured to receive a service request from the multi-channel communication device, return the SIM card parameter assigned to the subscriber to the multi-channel communication device, receive an authentication data packet of the SIM card parameter from the multi-channel communication device, and return a corresponding authentication result to the multi-channel communication device;

    a SIM scheduling unit, configured to search, according to the service request received by the subscriber access management unit, in the SIM database data to select appropriate SIM, and return a corresponding SIM card parameter to the subscriber access management unit; and

    a SIM card read-and-write management unit, configured to transfer the authentication data packet of the SIM card parameter received from the subscriber access management unit to the at least one SIM card read-and-write device, and return an authentication result calculated by the at least one SIM card read-and-write device to the subscriber access management unit.
