Ericsson and Aconite have teamed up to provide a service that securely delivers and remotely manages applications for consumer’s NFC (Near Field Communications) enabled mobile phones. Banks wishing to issue contactless mobile payments applications are the service’s primary market. Other markets include organisations issuing access, ID, loyalty, ticketing and proximity marketing applications.



Together, Ericsson and Aconite will offer application issuers a turnkey solution for distributing mobile-based products.The solutions is a fast track to the market, offering a route with lower risk and capital-investment.


It is based on the integration of the Aconite Mobile Application Manager with the Ericsson Trusted Service Manager (TSM) service, through Global Platform standard interfaces. The solution enables an issuer to create a security domain within the secure element (of any type) in the NFC handset and to load, personalise, update or delete applets on that domain.

The Aconite Mobile Application Manager is standard compliant with Global Platform standard messaging interfaces, ensuring the issuers’ data is isolated from the mobile infrastructure and maintained securely. End users can also transfer data between their security domains within secure elements and Aconite Mobile Application Manager, in order to manage payment transactions, EMV scripts, prepaid top-ups and other transactions securely and privately.

“Our collaboration with Ericsson lets us offer retail financial institutions, of all sizes, the opportunity to give their customers world-class mobile payments services economically and without delay,“ says Patrick Rdgester, SVP sales and marketing, at Aconite. The Ericsson TSM platform lowers the barriers of entry to the contactless ecosystem for issuers, says Richard Anell, head of Ericsson's IPX business.
