Neowave announces Weneo NFC
Neowave just announced Weneo NFC, a new version of its already deployed Weneo product series targeting
the NFC markets. Weneo NFC provides a convergence solution between mobile telephony, Internet and
contactless secure transactions environments.
Weneo NFC will allow mobile network operators customers to
benefit from new services independently from their location. Thanks to Weneo NFC, the same services are
available at home on a PC and/or on a handset when on the move.
When connected to a PC, communication with the handset is simplified as everything is run from the network operator’s
server, taking advantage of a security brought by the SIM card
installed in Weneo.
This way, the user can synchronize his directories, use
softphone applications, or benefit from Weneo’s own secure
memory for his own applications.
When on the move, Weneo NFC allows to connect instantly to Wifi hot spots. Also, the user will be able to
organize his own NFC applications, such as transport, payment, loyalty,… between Weneo and handset.
“Weneo has all the technical qualitites and provides a mature hardware and software integration to answer the
needs of various market players for the deployment of NFC services on an already recognized support such as
a USB key” said Emmanuelle Bonville, consultant with Smart Consulting and involved in the project.
“Neowave is especially proud to put its expertise to the service of network operators for the realization of this
Smart Object, companion of the NFC handset” said Bruno Bernard, Neowave CEO and co‐founder.

transactions world. Neowave Smart Object is a portable and personal object with all the smart card security
