As a provider of near field communications (NFC) mobile wallet and mobile marketing technology, Proxama’s membership of GlobalPlatform will focus on the efforts of the association’s Mobile Task Force, which works to understand the business requirements of the secure mobile services ecosystem to establish an agreed infrastructure.
David Harbige, Head of Mobile Payment at Proxama, comments: “The processes and specifications advanced by GlobalPlatform are intrinsic to everything that we do with secure elements in mobile devices. It is therefore essential to our work that we have access to all of the latest documentation from the association. Our membership will allow us to remain completely up-to-date with the current and future requirements of the GlobalPlatform-based infrastructures. We also hope to take advantage of the networking and knowledge sharing opportunities presented by attending GlobalPlatform meetings.”

Mobile services are all coming to the fore, so it is extremely encouraging to see so many market players bringing their expertise to GlobalPlatform and basing their technologies on our secure specifications.”
