Sagem Orga offer NFC sticker


Sagem Orga and Twinlinx have launched a mobile contactless sticker powered by the Twinlinx “MyMax” and Sagem Orga Java Card technologies. This “SIMply Mobile Wallet” sticker adds NFC capability to existing and future mobile phones and can be managed securely over the air (OTA).

NFC has attracted a great deal of interest over the last few years, with many pilots being run throughout the world. However, according to Sagem, ‘market acceptance is not progressing due to the lack of NFC phones and mature applications’. A contactless mobile sticker added as an accessory to the phone solves this problem by upgrading mobile phones with NFC functionality without users having to change their phones.

MyMax is a thin electronic sticker designed by Twinlinx that uses Bluetooth communication to connect to the phone. Sagem Orga offers a complete family of secure contactless cards/chips that can be embedded in the sticker, enabling it to be used in different scenarios. Initially, the Sagem Orga Java Card JMV Pro CL will be used as the secure element in the sticker, allowing users to directly interact with the Java Card through a mobile application. New services can be added and managed securely over the air (OTA) via the SIMply Mobile Wallet sticker.

“The joint solution of Sagem Orga and Twinlinx is paving the way for the development and mass deployment of NFC applications, for example in transport, payment, access control and smart posters,” comments Didier S
