RIM's Secure Element Manager Solution to Power NFC Mobile Payments in Canada
      #43575 - 10/22/12 02:09 PM

Research In Motion today announced that it has been selected by EnStream LP, a joint venture of Bell Mobility Inc., Rogers Wireless Partnership and TELUS Communications Company, to provide its Secure Element Manager (SEM) solution to manage credentials on wireless handsets in Canada that support Near Field Communication (NFC) services. Here's more info:

RIM's SEM solution is designed to securely manage credentials on SIM (subscriber identity module) cards installed in all types of mobile devices, including BlackBerry smartphones, Android devices, and Windows phones.

Through the infrastructure that RIM's SEM solution provides, financial institutions in Canada will have a single gateway allowing them to support any customer with an NFC-enabled smartphone that wants to enable a "mobile wallet" application. RIM's SEM solution provides the infrastructure that will securely manage information credentials for NFC payments, which can be used by any financial institution, carrier, or smartphone.

RIM has been recognized as a leader in providing mobile payments for some time with BlackBerry smartphones becoming one of the first smartphones to be certified for SIM-secure NFC payments using MasterCard PayPass, and are also approved for use with Visa payWave. More recently, RIM announced the ability to use NFC-enabled BlackBerry smartphones to replace access badges for buildings with secure entry requirements.

Currently, a range of BlackBerry 7 smartphones, including the BlackBerry Bold series and select BlackBerry Curve smartphones, are NFC-enabled. For more info visit
