Gemalto, Banco Itaú and TIM Launch Brazil’s First Pilot Program for NFC Payments; emalto’s UpTeq NFC SIM cards and Allynis Trusted Service Management platform enable mobile contactless payments for TIM Itaucard

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security, today announced that its UpTeq NFC SIM and AllynisTrusted Services Management (TSM) platform are at the core of Brazil's first mobile NFC payment program. TIM Brasil, a mobile operator with 70 million subscribers, and Banco Itaú, one of the world's largest banks, are using Gemalto's technology to transform smartphones into convenient mobile payment solutions that enable secure, on-the-go transactions by simply waving the handset close to a contactless payment terminal. Gemalto's TSM platform will enable the secure integration and management of NFC services across the country.

Gemalto's NFC SIM cards and TSM platform greatly simplify and speed up secure mobile transactions, keeping sensitive account data private while providing a value added service that increases customer satisfaction and loyalty for brands and banks. Participants can make purchases in more than 100 frequently visited restaurants, coffee shops and local stores. As the pilot program expands, Gemalto's TSM solution will allow secure, over-the-air installation of a wide range of NFC services on mobile devices such as public transportation.

"Our long time partnership with Gemalto is integral to providing groundbreaking technology and services that build loyalty and attract new subscribers," said Roger Solé, Chief Marking Officer, TIM Brazil. "Gemalto's experience in mobile financial services in Latin America is instrumental in driving this pilot program and helping to assess challenges, develop solutions and synthesize user feedback to ensure success of an expanded countrywide rollout in the future."

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
