Swiss firms tie up for NFC ID

Swisscom's Tapit NFC wallet app is in beta test

Mobile network operator Swisscom, ID company Legic Identsystems and security specialist Kaba are working together to create an NFC ecosystem that will allow businesses across Switzerland to easily integrate NFC-based access control and time and attendance recording services.

Swisscom’s Tapit NFC platform is to be launched in 2014, offering access to both payments and access control services. Legic’s IDConnect platform, which uses Bell ID’s Mobile Token Manager software, will be used to allow access control credential providers to store IDs on Swisscom SIMs.
