The Netherlands based provider of chip lifecycle management solutions, Bell ID, has been selected by EnStream a joint venture of Bell Mobility, TELUS and Rogers Communications to provision and manage secure applications on NFC enabled devices in Canada.
The technology enables EnStream to operate as a Trusted Service Manager (TSM).
The solution provides over-the-air lifecycle management of applications, cryptographic keys and secure elements (SEs) on NFC devices. It enables TSMs - such as EnStream - to supply service providers, including banks, transit operators and merchants, with the means to securely provision, store and update their credentials and applications on NFC capable mobile devices.
EnStream has been established to act as a hub, interconnecting any Canadian issuer with all mobile network operators.
Pat Curran, Executive Chairman at Bell ID, commented: "Bell ID has proven success in delivering large scale EMV token deployments for key Canadian banks. We are delighted to now be working with EnStream to also share our global TSM expertise in Canada to advance the NFC landscape. The selection of Bell ID's solution by EnStream confirms our position as a leading vendor independent TSM software provider."
