Keywords:Gemalto Taiwan Mobile? NFC? contactless system?

Digital security solutions provider Gemalto has been chosen by Taiwan Mobile to provide the world's first commercial NFC SIM-based mobile contactless system. Gemalto's solution will allow Taiwan Mobile to register, issue, manage and terminate mobile NFC services over-the-air. The solution will be commercially rolled out nationwide this year.

"We learnt a great deal from our NFC SIM programs in Taiwan about the needs of our partners and end-users for trust and convenience. Every subscriber is convinced that mobile tap-to-pay is fast, convenient and easy to use. We responded by becoming a business facilitator", said Tan Teck Lee, president, Gemalto Asia.

Added Jeff Ku, VP of emerging services, Taiwan Mobile, "Remote management of contactless services is key. With these enablers subscribers do not have to go to a bank branch or train station to load and update their applications. This solution is primarily intended for contactless payment use, but we can extend this system to work also with transport applications and contactless coupon management."
