Singapore picks Gemalto for mobile NFC ticketing platform

Monday 4 April 2016 | 09:01 CET | News
Gemalto's NFC ticketing technology was selected by Singapore to enable public transit commuters to pay their fare using their mobile phone. Gemalto's UpTeq Multi-Tenant NFC SIM​ allows commuters to use the EZ-Link mobile application to pay for public transport rides with a tap of their phone. Mobile network operators and banks can eventually use this platform to provide new value-added services too. The project is spearheaded by a consortium Gemalto is part of, and other partners include EZ-Link, governing bodies and MNOs.
