Sprint, Wirecard to deliver the Internet of Payments

Wednesday 8 January 2020 13:18 CET | News

Wirecard and Sprint have announced plans to integrate Wirecard’s unified commerce solutions into Sprint’s Curiosity Internet of Things (IoT) platform to deliver the ‘Internet of Payments’.

The two companies were brought together by SoftBank Investment Advisers, and the reason behind their collaboration is to embed payment capabilities in IoT deployments, bringing added value to enterprise clients on a global scale. Sprint and Wirecard will initially focus on the retail segment, to define and deliver the retail experience of the future, across all channels, with a unified commerce approach.

Sprint’s Curiosity IoT platform is a new standard in how enterprises manage and secure IoT devices and connectivity. Via the platform, the Curiosity Core – the first dedicated, distributed, and virtualised IoT network – is combined with Curiosity OS – an integrated IoT operating system. This is meant to bring networks to data collection sites and enable the future of commerce.
