Zenius Solutions, a Silicon Valley NFC software company, has integrated its software with an add-on for GSM phones providing interactive NFC capability. The solution expands on current NFC offerings in the market by supporting multiple NFC applications, providing control to the user from the handset screen, and supporting remote provisioning of NFC applications.
NFC payment capability is achieved by adding to supported GSM phones a Bladox Waver SIM that’s running ZeniusMobilePay which will allow MasterCard PayPass, Visa payWave, American Express ExpressPay and Discover Network Zip EMV and non-EMV Contactless transactions.
The Zenius-enabled Waver solution from Prague IC manufacturer Bladox fits into the phone’s SIM slot along with the original SIM card. The add-on securely integrates with wallet applications on the mobile phone – allowing a consumer to control and access multiple applications, providing the same functionalities available in NFC capable phones.
In addition to payments, applications that could be loaded remotely onto the Waver include transport and coupons. Zenius also supplies EMV and non-EMV payment software, as well as a suite of closed-loop applications, to mobile wallet providers, issuing banks, merchants and add-on hardware manufacturers.
The Zenius-enabled BLADOX Waver can also interface with other platforms including the Apple iPhone, Google Android and RIM BlackBerry.
