Gemalto has announced that its “Allynis” Trusted Service Manager (TSM) solution has been selected to securely manage transactions on the Isis mobile commerce platform.
Isis, the mobile commerce joint venture between Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile, will enable U.S. customers to pay, present loyalty cards, and redeem coupons all with a tap of their NFC-enabled phones. According to Sébastien Cano, seniro vice president at Gemalto North America, the TSM solution will enable Isis to securely deliver mobile payments along with a host of NFC services, including access control and mass transit in addition to couponing and loyalty.
As TSM, Gemalto will act as an intermediary between banks and mobile operators, securely conveying the payment information necessary to successfully perform contactless mobile transactions.
Isis contactless payments will be available at restaurants, movie theaters, drug stores and a variety of other outlets. The service expected to debut in Salt Lake City and Austin in the first half of 2012 ahead of a nationwide roll out.
