Vodafone has chosen digital security company Gemalto to help manage its rollout of contactless mobile payments worldwide. Gemalto will provide and operate Vodafone’s global Trusted Service Management platform and will help the operator deploy NFC services solutions.
Philippe Vallée, Executive Vice-President of Telecommunications at Gemalto, said “Vodafone’s decision to deploy the first global NFC service with Gemalto marks another important milestone in the long-standing and successful relationship between the two companies. With the experience of dozens of TSM deployments worldwide, Gemalto brings significant accumulated expertise from both the telecoms and banking sectors. Vodafone’s project will benefit from Gemalto’s robust solution portfolio and from our know-how in end-to-end mission-critical systems integration.”
The multi-year contract will see Gemalto’s technology used to launch NFC mobile payment services that can be offered in all the countries where Vodafone operates.
