GlobalPlatform announced that it will hold a one-day training session in Nice, France that will educate participants on the role of GlobalPlatform Specifications in mobile contactless services.
The training session, titled “GlobalPlatform for Contactless,” will take place on September 26 at the B4 Nice Plaza. Key topics will include how GlobalPlatform’s technology supports the mobile wallet, trusted service manager (TSM) messaging and secure element management.
“The new mobile-focused session has been created in response to an increased uptake of GlobalPlatform Specifications by stakeholders engaged in the deployment of contactless-enabled services on mobile platforms,” commented Kevin Gillick, Executive Director of GlobalPlatform. “The agenda is designed to provide delegates with a more detailed understanding of the capabilities and functionality of GlobalPlatform Specifications particularly in reference to mobile implementations and the advancing mobile wallet and TSM ecosystems.”
GlobalPlatform’s new workshop is an extension of its introductory card specification training program. Students interested in attending the contactless session and have not yet participated in GlobalPlatform training are encouraged to first register for the card specification event, which will take place on September 24-25 at the B4 Nice Plaza.
The training session is open to both GlobalPlatform members and non-members at a fee of $995 and $1,295, respectively. According to GlobalPlatform, discounts are available for organizations sending multiple students.
