The goal is to strengthen customer relationships and accomplish business goals with optimized time, increased activation and cost savings.
This is done by coupling Entrust Datacard's industry-leading instant issuance solution and ease of deployment with Gemalto's SaaS platform.
How it's done: Entrust Datacard's instant issuance printers are installed and set up at the branch. EMV cards can then be personalized and printed on-demand while the issuance software is hosted by and remotely managed from Gemalto's cloud-based SaaS infrastructure.
Wirecard announced the launch of the new mobile solution Wirecard ePOS App for the acceptance of common international payment methods on mobile devices for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

They predict that IDoT (Identity of Things) services are expected to grow significantly over the next five years with most of the revenues being driven primarily by industrial, manufacturing, and automotive market verticals.
"Although certain verticals are still lagging in terms of security, IoT vendors are finally starting to invest more on encryption and device certificate management," Dimitrios Pavlakis, Industry Analyst at ABI Research.
“We are entering a transformational period where device IDs, system IDs, and user IDs are forced to merge under the hyper-connected IoT paradigms."

Validation of COMPRION GSMA SGP.23 Type B Device Tests Activates New GCF Work Item
Testing consumer devices in terms of their RSP functionality including SM-DS becomes part of the GCF mobile type approval certification program
The tests specified as Type B by the GSMA are now part of the GCF mobile type approval program. “Manufacturers of consumer devices who want to use their smartphones, tablets, PCs, or smartwatches in the GSMA eSIM environment, now must prove that their devices correctly support switching of the operator. This is done by the GCF certification. It is an important step for a globally compatible eSIM ecosystem,“ explains Frank Oberhokamp, Product Manager for eUICC test solutions at COMPRION.
“Thanks to COMPRION these tests are now part of GCF,“ Oberhokamp is delighted. The validation of the COMPRION GSMA SGP.23 RSP Device Test Bench on January 17/18, 2018, activated a new work item at GCF: GCF WI-276.
The GSMA – as the driving force and specification body for eSIM and RSP functionality – has developed a series of specifications with the aim of making the eSIM technology and the relevant services globally interoperable and reliable. GCF is one of GSMA’s industry partners providing certification for the eSIM technology using GSMA’s defined tests.
In November 2017, the validation of Type A tests has already led to the activation of the first GCF Work Item (WI-274) for device tests.For running the tests, a PC, the COMPRION Connectivity Test Center software, and a Wi-Fi network are required. At GCF, the solution is listed as Test Platform TP 203 (COMPRION RSP Conformance Platform).
