  7. 8. Mobility, Security and Perception <ul><li>There is no such thing as perfect security. </li></ul><ul><li>Security does not equal the perception of security . (ref. yesterday’s conversation on online payments) </li></ul><ul><li>Putting everything into a mobile phone is not automatically what (NL) consumers are looking for. Important issues: security, information single point of failure, connected/electronic (“open”) device, risk and surrounding business rules. </li></ul><ul><li>Unless there is true value-add , there’s no real reason stuff things into a mobile phone. Ticketing, payments, loyalty, etc. can be done with plastic cards. How to leverage the capabilities of a connected device? </li></ul><ul><li>Permission-based marketing and location-based services as the basis of “context awareness” are not automatically the future of mobile VAS. What about behaviour (anonymous)? </li></ul><ul><li>Multi-application mobile environments are interesting (is that a killer app? maybe), but key players in the industry on a nation-wide basis need to become more than applications/logos on slides, they need to become real actors in the mobile NFC ecosystem as well. </li></ul><ul><li>GMSA statement in November in Macau on NFC and SWP means a lot. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Mobile Operators vs. Service Providers <ul><li>In the European NFC ecosystem (for the most part) most mobile operators will likely be primarily B2B enablers in NFC, service providers will be primarily B2C and provide the application and the environment for it’s interaction. </li></ul><ul><li>Who owns the customer? Silly question. If anyone does, all of us do somewhat. However, there are areas it gets critical to sort it out: e.g. NFC customer support. </li></ul><ul><li>SE form factor, does it really matter so much? Is physical, legal and application control, is SWP is so bad? It’s the cashflow ecosystem that matters. </li></ul><ul><li>Who the consumer can call about a problem (NFC transaction, TSM activity) is all about market positioning of NFC. Mobile operator, service provider, a third-party tasked to play that role? We make this decision early in NL to effectively roll out services on a national level. </li></ul><ul><li>GSMA members: “Mobile operators will not buy mobile phones that banks specify. They will buy mobile phones that they specify.” </li></ul><ul><li>Rabo Mobiel is both; which is highly interesting from a learning perspective. </li></ul>other MVNOs
  9. 10. Standardisation <ul><li>We must look carefully at the heart of what we want with standardisation. Standardisation for standardisation’s sake alone is not (a priori) a business goal. </li></ul><ul><li>SEPA and the PSD are major and important projects, but the long-term goals for them are to benefit EU citizens and companies success. The EPC eChannel and mChannel expert groups need to keep that in mind. </li></ul><ul><li>An interesting model is the GSM standard. For banks and other service providers taking NFC seriously, GSM has provided both benefits and drawbacks. </li></ul><ul><li>Global Platform card and device specifications are critical. </li></ul><ul><li>Issues with TSM interoperability, transaction latency (e.g. OV), SWP, HCI and BIP will not solve the standardisation requirements needed for acceptance of mobile payments alone. The user-experience is critical, therein mobile phone hardware, OS and UI are critical. </li></ul><ul><li>Are there possibilities to extract the same standardisation goals from different market environments? What are the analogues between e.g. Korea, Japan, France, United Kingdom, The Netherlands? </li></ul><ul><li>Defacto: Do we already have an NFC SE standard? </li></ul><ul><li>Defacto: Do we already have a ChipKnip follow-up? </li></ul>
  10. 11. TSM <ul><li>Many TSMs in one national mobile or payment ecosystem inter-working to manage similar applications on mobile phones won’t really work. </li></ul><ul><li>Will there be a role for pre-TSM operations (e.g. TransLink)? </li></ul><ul><li>Can there be multiple TSMs in NL? Examples: single bank-launches, FeliCa, Payez. </li></ul><ul><li>What is the scope and limits of the TSM role? Pretty much everyone has a different opinion. Isn’t the real question: What are the successful building blocks of a healthy NFC ecosystem? </li></ul><ul><li>OTA application delivery, life-cycle management, ecosystem creation, application design, customer service? </li></ul>OTA App Delivery OTA App Life-Cycle Mgmt. Standardisation App Design Customer Service POS Formulas & Mgmt. Brand & Promotion GSM Radio Network Mobile Handsets & SIMs Service Provider Mgmt. ??? ??? TSM other MVNOs
