Norway's largest bank DNB and mobile operator Telenor select Gemalto for NFC payment service

 

CARTES Secure Connexions Event, Paris, Nov 19, 2013 - Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, is providing TSM Nordic, a company owned by Telenor and DNB, with mobile contactless technology for Norway’s first mobile NFC payment service. Telenor is Norway’s leading mobile operator with three million subscribers in the country and some 150 million worldwide, and DNB is the largest financial services provider with two million customers. Gemalto is providing a comprehensive solution including the multi-customer, shared Allynis TSM Hub as well as comprehensive integration and deployment support to offer Norwegian consumers the convenience of mobile contactless payments, with a rich mix of additional services including coupons, loyalty programs and ticketing. Gemalto’s Allynis Trusted Services Manager (TSM) solution is hosted and operated in Gemalto’s secure data centers certified by MasterCard and Visa.
 
The integrated TSM Hub platform is at the heart of the new service, acting as a single connection point from which mobile operators, banks, public transport authorities and other service providers can plug into to provide and manage mobile contactless services across an interoperable eco-system, which is expected to extend across the Nordic region in the longer term.
 
Gemalto is an open, competent and reliable partner. We are very satisfied with the management of this complex project which involves several stakeholders. Interoperability between the parties is a key element,” said Bjørn Skjelbred, project manager in TSM. “Their execution of this ambitious program is highly valued as are the problem solving skills.”
 
Norway is leading the way in Europe on digital payments, with cash now accounting for already 6% of all transactions,” said Jean-Claude Deturche, Senior Vice President of Mobile Financial Service for Gemalto. “The new multi-tenant service is a significant leap forward - one that can offer a growing range of easily deployed mobile contactless services and will welcome aboard new stakeholders in Norway and beyond.”
