COMPRION Joins EMVCo as a Technical Associate to Advance the Interoperability of Mobile Payments
COMPRION GmbH, the leading manufacturer of test solutions for cell
phones, extends its involvement in EMVCo activities. Testing for
mobile payment is now required by the mobile operator association
GSMA through their NFC Handset Test Book. COMPRION joins EMVCo
as a Technical Associate. The company offers its experience and
expertise in detecting communication problems of the contactless
interface used for mobile payment.
Paying by cell phone is certainly a convenient way of purchasing everyday
commodities; however, it is also a sensitive topic as the users private
banking data are involved. A high degree of reliability of the deployed
technology relying on comprehensive testing is the key success
factor. Without testing, technology problems might lead to a lack of user
acceptance. Therefore, the GSMA TS.27 NFC Handset Test Book demands
that handsets to be used for mobile payment have to run
through the EMVCo test plan.
As an EMVCo Technical Associate, COMPRION seeks to support the
payment standardization process using its expertise in GCF/PTCRB and
NFC Forum conformance testing of cell phones. COMPRION contributes
by providing input and receiving feedback on detailed technical and
operational issues associated with the EMV Specifications. Moreover,
the company has the opportunity to interact with EMVCo's technical
working groups. COMPRION can therefore provide reliable test equipment
to help chipset and handset vendors to exactly meet MNO requirements.
Swantje Missfeldt, Product Manager at COMPRION, comments: We are
delighted to extend our activities within EMVCo. With the rollout of mobile
payment applications, the banking and telecom sectors are merging.
COMPRION has experience in both business areas. With the increasing
variety of cards, mobile phones and payment terminals in the
market, we need to make sure that all components work together. The
base for interoperability is conformity with the standards. The role of
EMVCo and its Type Approval requirements is of prime importance in the
development and implementation of interoperable and secure payment
