19 June 2014  |  3694 views  |  0 Man holding smartphone

US telco giant AT&T has enlisted mobile commerce firm CorFire to help it deliver non-payment related NFC services to customers.

AT&T is focussing its mobile NFC payments efforts on Isis, the joint venture it established with T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless.

But it is also developing other contactless services through its AT&T NFC Connect service, tapping CorFire technology for things like access control.

The two companies are currently working on a pilot programme to test mobile-NFC access at Tulane University in New Orleans and Quinnipiac University in Connecticut.

Meanwhile, AT&T Commerce Connect is focusing on helping merchants to create and manage the distribution of offers, coupons and ID services directly to smartphones.
