Contactless payment embedded on SIM card.

Gemalto : 14 November, 2007  (Application Story)
JCB implements contactless card payment process onto a near field communication SIM enabling mobil phone based payments.
Gemalto announces the successful integration of JCB’s contactless payment solution, J/Speedy, onto its NFC SIM. In this way, Gemalto has provided both NFC-embedded mobile and SIM-based NFC options supporting two of the industry’s most popular contactless standards. Also integrated is an innovative smart card web server solution that displays J/SpeedyTM menus through the handset as web pages. This is an advantage in terms of providing a stronger branding and user experience. This combination allows banks to be better equipped to respond to market demands regardless of contactless standard or form factor used in the country.

“We have improved on the original Mobile J/Speedy whilst retaining maximum flexibility in allowing our members to address market needs. Both versions give customers the same quick convenience modern society demands,” said Tom Okabe, Senior Vice President, Product Strategy, Global Infrastructure & Technologies, JCB. “With the addition of J/Speedy on NFC-SIM, we are laying the technology groundwork to prepare to address future market needs.”

Tan Teck Lee, president of Gemalto Asia, commented: “We see how fast markets are changing and how technology and innovation needs to keep up with these changes. Now we are aggregating expertise and experiences from multiple disciplines to help create new trends and market opportunities. Gemalto is glad to be at the forefront with JCB in preparing for the future of mobile contactless.”

Gemalto and JCB already worked together with other partners on a mobile contactless pilot in Amsterdam in 2006 developing a version of Mobile J/Speedy that was loaded directly into the mobile phone. The NFC SIM version offers the same payment features and now adds secure portability and web page menus to access service information and options. This is possible through the built-in smart card web server technology standardized by the Open Mobile Alliance. This new technology allows end-users to access their applications and information, securely stored in the SIM, through the browser of their mobile phone. This gives service providers the ability to give prominence to their brand and reinforce the relationship with customers.

The trend for mobile contactless payment is fast gaining momentum for its complementary combination of ease-of-use and convenience with security and mobility. The prevalence of traditional contactless payment options and the necessity of the mobile phone as everyday wear makes mobile contactless a natural next move.
