Swiss company Trüb will use Sequent’s mobile platform to provide over-the-air provisioning and lifecycle-management services. Trüb will provide services for products including EMV compliant cards, loyalty cards, access and transit cards on secure elements in telecoms provider Swisscom’s NFC devices.

Sachin Mittal, product manager at Swisscom, said: "Using the Trüb service, Swisscom subscribers will soon be able to download their credit or prepaid cards into their SIM cards and together with NFC smartphones use them to make purchases from NFC-enabled merchants.

Robb Duffield, CEO of Sequent, said: "We are delighted to partner with Trüb to deliver a compelling, capable solution for its client bank card issuers and for Swisscom.

"Our partnership demonstrates how existing ecosystem players can easily and securely add powerful mobile channels that generate new, significant revenue streams."
