The company’s new Mobile Test Centre enables NFC solutions to be checked for compliance with specifications set by a wide range of industry associations and standards bodies.
Collis has introduced a mobile test centre that can test for compliance with NFC standards and specifications from a wide range of industry bodies including MasterCard, Visa, GlobalPlatform, the SIMalliance, ETSI/3GPP, GCF/PTCRB, the NFC Forum, and EMVCo.
“As mobile commerce is gaining momentum with concepts such as trusted service manager and near field communication technology, the need for compliance is rising,” says the company. “The Collis Mobile Test Centre offers the necessary testing services to every stakeholder in the NFC ecosystem to comply with a standard to achieve the goal of widely accepted and interoperable NFC-TSM infrastructures.”
“The key word is trust,” explains CEO Dirk Jan van den Heuvel. “A TSM can only be trustworthy if the underlying infrastructure is. There are many stakeholders involved in an NFC-TSM ecosystem implementation. Not all components are necessarily visible to all stakeholders, and no direct trust relation exists between all of them.
“In order to bridge the gaps, Collis Mobile Test Centre offers the necessary testing services to every stakeholder in the ecosystem, with clear definition of domains and components involved,” he adds. “And this is the key to our success. As an independent single point of contact we facilitate a so-called one stop shop for testing of all mobile components and streamline the trust relation between stakeholders.”
