Bell ID announced the launch of Bell ID Mobile Token Manager, a new software platform that provides over-the-air life cycle management of applications, cryptographic keys and secure elements NFC-enabled mobile devices.
According to Bell ID, the solution assists mobile network operators, service providers and trusted third parties in executing complex Trusted Service Manager (TSM) services or the provisioning of applications onto mobile device handsets.
Fully compliant with industry standards, the solution can be used for international deployments and is form factor neutral, supporting the life cycle of applications on any type of secure element, including SEs, UICCs and microSD cards, according to Bell ID.
Bell ID is working with banks and payment services providers that are looking to directly manage their mobile payment applications through the deployment of microSD cards.
“There is a real attraction in being able to synchronize the management of payment applications residing on both EMV smart cards and mobile secure elements,” states David Orme, CEO at Bell ID. “The Bell ID Mobile Token Manager can achieve this by integrating into legacy infrastructures to create one central application life cycle platform.”
