The service is the first pan-Asian deployment for Gemalto’s certified Trusted Services Management (TSM) centre in Taiwan. Starting this month selected customers can collect their phone from Kasikornbank to enjoy mobile NFC services.

“Leveraging Gemalto’s experience, we are able to make NFC payment easy to use,” said Art Wichiencharoen, senior vice president of retail and SME e-business, at Kasikornbank.

“We have a simple user interface on the phone that guides a user to some 40 retail outlets where they can immediately perform mobile NFC payments like for food, entertainment and grocery shopping. They will appreciate this fast and fuss-free new means of payment.”

Gemalto’s TSM will manage and prepare sensitive user information from Kasikornbank to operate secure over-the-air (OTA) personalisation services that enable mobile subscribers to gain access to NFC payments and AIS services.

“With Kasikornbank and AIS we are able to bring the convenience of mobile NFC sooner and in a secure manner to Thai consumers,” said Tan Teck-Lee, president, at Gemalto Asia.

“Gemalto’s TSM services are designed to be implemented securely across national borders and this will help countries to overcome local barriers to NFC implementations.”
