T-Mobile Selects Gemalto’s Trusted Service Manager for First pan-European NFC Launch; Goes Live in Poland

Regulatory News:

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, announces that T-Mobile has selected its LinqUs Trusted Service Manager (TSM) platform for the group-wide rollout of NFC services. Gemalto’s TSM platform will enable the secure installation and management of T-Mobile’s NFC services across major European markets. This group-wide deployment will be implemented firstly in Poland.

Gemalto provided PTC, T-Mobile’s network operator in Poland, with a complete NFC solution encompassing the TSM platform and the mobile wallet software, as well as the UpTeq NFC high-end card for mass deployment of SIM-based mobile contactless services. PTC will start the nationwide SIM upgrade to the new UpTeq NFC card by year-end to ensure NFC-readiness for the deployment of a broad range of innovative services to its 14-million subscriber base.

Gemalto’s end-to-end solution will enable PTC to efficiently grow its portfolio of NFC services through the progressive addition of new partners over time. The LinqUs TSM is an open and interoperable secure platform which permits interconnection with any service provider, while the UpTeq NFC secure device enables the operator to easily on-board and manage new services even after the issuance to end users.

This program is the first nationwide NFC rollout in Poland. The country has been a forerunner of contactless payment, with over 10 million banking cards and over 90,000 contactless terminals already active in the field, representing over 20% of the total point-of-sale readers. PTC customers will now be offered the convenience of using their mobile phone to enjoy a broad range of NFC services including payment, access to mass transit and parking systems, loyalty programs and stadium ticketing during major events.

Gemalto’s NFC solution provides PTC with the excellent flexibility required to easily ramp up additional mobile contactless service” commented Jean-Claude Deturche, Gemalto senior vice president, Mobile Financial Services. “The project delivery expertise of our teams is key to the smooth deployment of their NFC program, and our capabilities acquired through several dozens of TSM commercial implementations worldwide will help T-Mobile in tapping the enormous potential of mobile contactless services being deployed in Europe.”

Contextual Analytics of various threat data provides a deeper understanding of a given threat and enables identification of unknown threat vectors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Dufour, Head of Security Architecture, IoT, Webroot, Inc., discussed how through the use of Big Data analytics and deep data correlation across different threat types, it is possible to gain a better understanding of where, how and to what level of danger a malicious actor poses to an organization, and to determin...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
