Friday 20 June 2014 00:05 CET | News

US mobile operator AT&T has unveiled that is set to use technology from CorFire, a US mobile commerce technology company, to power NFC Connect, a platform that will enable it to provide a range of NFC services outside of the Isis mobile commerce venture it co-owns with Verizon and T-Mobile.

CorFire technology is also set to be used to deliver the carrier’s AT&T Commerce Connect mobile marketing platform.

AT&T NFC Connect is set to act as a service provider TSM for non-payment applications such as access control. The technology is currently being piloted at Tulane University in New Orleans and Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, in partnership with CorFire and campus card provider Blackboard. Meanwhile, AT&T Commerce Connect is set to enable merchants to distribute offers, coupons, loyalty and ID services, gifting and stored-value accounts to customers’ smartphones.
