FIME to certify Isis products

Certifing Isis products

FIME, a consulting and market integration testing service for NFC solutions, has been authorised by Isis to certify Isis products, including mobile handsets and secure elements (view press release). The company’s North American laboratory is the first to achieve this qualification, which will standardise the technology throughout the Isis ecosystem to ensure that it meets functional, security and industry regulations.  Isis, a joint venture by AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, allows consumers to pay for goods and access value added mobile services, through the use of NFC-enabled mobile phones. The project is expected to roll out in Austin, Texas and Salt Lake City, Utah.

FIME’s laboratory in North America will work with device manufacturers to perform evaluations of Isis mobile handsets and secure elements, to certify their compliance with Isis technical specifications and attain the necessary certification. Testing of handsets and secure elements throughout the development process has been set up to provide a quicker time to market for vendors.

Interoperability and standardisation between NFC devices is crucial for the successful deployment of any NFC ecosystem. The fact that FIME’s North America laboratory can provide the necessary testing and certification, means Isis products can be confidently brought to market and form part of a trusted mobile commerce infrastructure,” said Vincent Poty, Head of Strategy and Corporate Development at FIME.
