Test

DBS customers with StarHub mobile plans will be the first in Singapore to use the NFC Mobile Payment Solution trial service for everyday mobile payments.

The project—a collaboration among DBS Bank, EZ-Link, Gemalto, MasterCard and StarHub--will involve adding an N-Flex solution enabling to turn conventional handsets into NFC-enabled mobile phone without any change to the device.

The N-Flex solution functions on SIM cards across multiple mobile handsets helping to accelerate the ubiquity of handsets supporting NFC.

The solution is also the first-of-its-kind conforming to the Single Wire Protocol as endorsed by the GSM Association.
