“TSM 2.0, evolution of the TSM model in the NFC ecosystem”
The TSM (Trusted Service Manager) model has first been presented in a GSM Association NFC white paper in late 2007, even though the TSM function already existed in pre-NFC technologies (ie., Korea and Japan). Since then, major industry organisations (eg., EPC, EMVco, Transport Associations) and more than 100 NFC trials worldwide have pushed the model forward and refined it.
In the past 3 years, the TSM role has proven to be strategic, at the very heart of the NFC ecosystem and the dematerialization of Smart Cards, being the cornerstone of secure applications provisioning and life cycle management. As a consequence, the largest NFC stakeholders (Telcos, Service Providers and Industry Associations) have rapidly created dedicated think tank to assess their positioning and secure their interests in this new and potentially disruptive smart applications provisioning model and Service Providers began to concretely climb up the learning curve by launching a bunch of trials.
A lot has been achieved since then, and this industry is now at the end of a 4-year learning cycle, ready to initiate the commercial deployments phase of NFC services. In this learning phase, the TSM model has been significantly revamped and improved.
This presentation will reflect the experience of CASSIS International in more than 21 customers and countries on key TSM evolutions:
– The initial role of the TSM, what is at stake?
– Position of major stakeholders in key segments: transport, payment, mobile telephony,
– Return on experience of current trials and tentative deployments,
– Evolution and perspective of the TSM model.
