Vendors announced Monday they are supplying UK-based Vodafone Group with trusted service management services and mobile-wallet software, respectively, as the UK-based telco gears up for NFC commercial launches.
France-based Gemalto said it would serve as Vodafone’s “global” TSM, while U.S.-based CorFire announced it would provide mobile-wallet software to the group.
It wasn’t clear whether the TSM and wallet-software contracts cover all of Vodafone’s European branches. As NFC Times reported earlier, Gemalto’s contract for TSM services was believed to cover only Germany and the UK. The contract might have been expanded to other branches.
