OT partners FSCM to roll out NFC services in France

Monday 11 July 2016 | 11:34 AM CET

Oberthur Technologies (OT), a global provider of embedded security software, has teamed up with Association Française du Sans Contact Mobile (AFSCM) to roll out NFC services in France.

The NFC services will be rolled out in partnership with the 3 major mobile operators, Bouygues Telecom, Orange and SFR.

In June 2016, 11.5 million French users have an NFC compatible device, with a growth of 47.1% compared to 2015. In this market context, AFSCM together with French mobile operators have decided to build a common hub to enable the launch of NFC services in France. OT is the sole provider for the deployment and management of this hub.

French end-users will benefit from digital cards in their smartphones that will become an all-in-one tool to transit, as local and national transports tickets and subscriptions are digitized in the smartphone, or to pay by waving them in front of a contactless terminal.

All these NFC services will be provided through a single interface deployed and managed by OT. The multi- tenant architecture of OT’s solution allows a mutualisation of resources and connections to service providers among the three mobile operators. In addition, it enables onboarding of new MNOs or MVNOs.
