The multi-year global contract will provide the foundation for ‘wave and pay’ contactless transactions via mobile phone, as well as new services. Key elements of the end-to-end solution that is being integrated by Gemalto include the Allynis TSM service platform (a complete solution that ensures mobile payment end-to-end security encryption between financial institutions and mobile operators) and the company’s UpTeq NFC high-end card product.

As the turnkey supplier and systems integrator for this international project, Gemalto will provide for the launch of a range of services that can address subscribers located in all the countries where Vodafone Group operates. Gemalto’s solution will allow both Vodafone subsidiaries and third party service providers such as banks, transport operators and retailers to plug into a  NFC ecosystem.
