NTT DOCOMO selects Gemalto’s NFC services

Gemalto has announced it has been selected by NTT DOCOMO for its mobile NFC services.

Gemalto will provide an end-to-end solution featuring its Allynis Trusted Service Management (TSM) service, as well as the UpTeq NFC UICC embedding both the SIM and contactless applications. This collaboration reinforces Gemalto’s long-standing partnership with NTT DOCOMO.

Gemalto’s solution will provide convenience and security for NFC deployment and sensitive data management to all service providers. The launch will deliver a rich variety of contactless services encompassing mobile payments, loyalty programs, e-ticketing and access control.

“Japan has the world’s largest contactless infrastructure so end consumers are already familiar to waving their mobile phone to enjoy contactless services,” said Michael Au, President South Asia and Japan at Gemalto. “The NFC functionality builds on the UpTeq LTE card that NTT DOCOMO has already started to seed the market with, and will enable them to offer their customers an enhanced NFC experience.”
