and identification solutions and services based on smart card
technologies, today announced its exclusive collaboration with Smart
Catch International, a digital security service provider in Taiwan, for
providing Trusted Service Management (TSM) services to Taiwanese mobile
operators and service providers.
Oberthur Technologies’ complete NFC offer including TSM, NFC SIM cards,
mobile applications and more, already boasts several years of extensive
research, development, trials and commercial launches. The NFC solutions
are already deployed in over 20 countries worldwide with over 30 TSM
references. Building on this expertise, Oberthur Technologies will

functionalities to Taiwanese mobile operators and services providers,
for secure deployment and management of NFC services.
The combination of Smart Catch International’s local presence and
Oberthur Technologies’ NFC expertise worldwide, will enable Taiwanese
mobile operators and service providers to launch complete mobile payment
offerings rapidly. With a high percentage of Taiwan’s 23 million
inhabitants already using contactless cards, the emergence of mobile
contactless services is fast-approaching.
“We are delighted to establish this partnership with Smart Catch
International and are enthusiastic about launching these services.
Taiwan is ready for this innovation and we believe that Smart Catch
International and Oberthur Technologies have the best positioning to
successfully launch and grow the Taiwanese mobile payment market”
