Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653), the world leader in digital security, announces the selection by NTT Docomo, INC., the No.1 mobile operator in Japan with over 63 million subscribers, for its mobile NFC services.

Gemalto will provide NTT DOCOMO with an end-to-end solution featuring its Allynis Trusted Service Management (TSM) service, as well as the UpTeq NFC UICC embedding both the SIM and contactless applications. This collaboration reinforces Gemalto's long-standing partnership with NTT DOCOMO, which includes Japan's first Long Term Evolution (LTE) high-bandwidth wireless connectivity in 2010.

The launch will deliver a rich variety of contactless services encompassing mobile payments, loyalty programs, e-ticketing and access control.

Gemalto's solution will provide the highest level of convenience and security for NFC deployment and sensitive data management to all service providers. Gemalto's UpTeq NFC UICC is the ideal solution to use NFC mobile phones to access services requiring fast processing and high security like payment, and all other valuable future NFC services thanks to its scalable capacity and superior post-issuance management capability.

"Japan has the world's largest contactless infrastructure so end consumers are already familiar to waving their mobile phone to enjoy contactless services," said Michael Au, President South Asia and Japan at Gemalto. "The NFC functionality builds on the UpTeq LTE card that NTT DOCOMO has already started to seed the market with, and will enable them to offer their customers an enhanced NFC experience.'
