providing TSM Nordic, a company owned by Telenor and DNB, with mobile
contactless technology for Norway’s first mobile NFC payment service. Telenor
is Norway’s leading mobile operator with three million subscribers in the

consumers the convenience of mobile contactless payments, with a rich mix of
additional services including coupons, loyalty programs and ticketing.
Gemalto’s Allynis Trusted Services Manager (TSM) solution is hosted and

The integrated TSM Hub platform is at the heart of the new service, acting as
a single connection point from which mobile operators, banks, public transport
authorities and other service providers can plug into to provide and manage
mobile contactless services across an interoperable eco-system, which is
expected to extend across the Nordic region in the longer term.
“Gemalto is an open, competent and reliable partner. We are very satisfied
with the management of this complex project which involves several

Bjørn Skjelbred, project manager in TSM. “Their execution of this ambitious
program is highly valued as are the problem solving skills.”

accounting for already 6% of all transactions,” said Jean-Claude Deturche,
Senior Vice President of Mobile Financial Service for Gemalto. “The new
multi-tenant service is a significant leap forward - one that can offer a
growing range of easily deployed mobile contactless services and will welcome
aboard new stakeholders in Norway and beyond.”
