FIME, an independent consulting and market integration testing service, has been selected by
digital security provider Gemalto to validate its UICC NFC 2.0 product. The goal is to achieve qualification status by GlobalPlatform, which launched its compliance program earlier this year.
Gemalto is among the first smart card players to align its product with the functional requirements outlined by GlobalPlatform to manage applications on UICC technology.
In becoming GlobalPlatform qualified, Gemalto’s UICC assures those using its product that it has successfully met the required functionality needed to manage applications that reside on the UICC technology in line with GlobalPlatform Card Specification v2.2.
The certification also confirms that the UICC is adaptable and scalable to accommodate multiple applications and can support multiple business models within the mobile services landscape.
