In addition to these eye-catching announcements, we were very excited to launch a couple of our own services at the MWC this year. Our NFC for Transport service was launched in Madrid and it will make life easier for its citizens in many ways. As we mentioned on the blog, this service uses our own Allynis Trusted Service Manager (TSM) and UpTeq Multitenant SIM technology to ensure speed and convenience for metro and bus users, and a range of compelling commercial benefits for service providers. You never know, it might not be long until this happens in the Barcelona!

We also showcased our tokenization solution, which is now available for mobile payment service deployment. The solution is great news for issuing banks that can continue to use their existing communication channels and payment credentials, and customers who benefit from real time enrollment and improved security.
And finally, the show gave us a great opportunity to show some of the other demos that we’ve been working on. As many of you know, part of the prize of winning our IoT maker competition was the promise that we would develop the winning concept into a working prototype and showcase it at MWC. After a busy few weeks of building a prototype, we unveiled the 3G Bushfire Alert System on our stand, as you can see below.

We also provided a demonstration on how Mobile Connect can make the world a more secure and friendly place, serving as the user’s new and safe online identity whilst ensuring that all personal information won’t be shared without your permission.
