New Watchdata SIMpass form factor offers most practical and easily deployed NFC solution to date!

Watchdata, a recognized pioneer in innovative data security and smart card technology, will launch a revolutionary mobile NFC form factor at the 2012 GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The new solution is called SIMpass-SC.

Based on highly successful SIMpass technology, the new product embeds a secure element, an active front end and an antenna into a single dual interface SIM card form factor, providing one of the most elegant, practical and cost-effective ways to deploy the widely accepted NFC technology into current and future handsets.

Inserting the new SIMpass-SC instantly transforms any handset into an NFC device. It uses an integrated antenna, avoiding the need for external attachments and allowing it to fit into the same space as a normal SIM card.

“We are proud to present the latest technological breakthrough,” said Michael Yu, President of Watchdata International Business Operations, “Our new SIMpass-SC solution gives MNOs what they want right now – the most practical and quick-to-deploy form factor. We feel this will provide greater customer attraction and higher ROI for our MNO customers.”

Interested parties are encouraged to stop by the Watchdata booth 1-C-05 in Hall 1 at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from 27 February through 1 March 2012 to see the new SIMpass-SC solution as well as Watchdata’s SIM-based Wi-Fi, SIM-based social network and SIMachine M2M solutions.
