China Mobile selects FIME NFC RF test bench

Jason Lai

Taipei, Taiwan – China Mobile Limited, the leading mobile services provider in mainland China, has purchased FIME’s EMV® contactless analogue test bench. Additionally, FIME will offer consultancy services and carry out pre-certification vendor handset testing.

Following a competitive tender, advanced secure chip testing and tool provider FIME will provide the test equipment to China Mobile and undergo a period of consultancy in order to support the deployment and continued management of the tool. Pre-certification handset testing will take place at FIME Asia’s laboratory where it will also provide near field communication (NFC) handset certification consultancy, expediting the testing cycle and overall time to market.

Jason Lai, Business Development Manager at FIME Asia (pictured above), comments: “This is an extremely exciting project for us. We recently announced the approval of our EMV contactless analogue test bench for EMV Contactless Specification Level 1 and the selection of this tool by one of the largest mobile telecommunications companies globally demonstrates FIME’s credentials in the marketplace”.

Lai explains that FIME’s support for pre-certification testing and the expansion of China Mobile’s in-house testing capabilities will enable the leading mobile services provider to accelerate the distribution of NFC handsets and support its plans for further Asian and European expansion. He concludes: “We look forward to developing this relationship and helping China Mobile deliver NFC-enabled solutions to its customers”.
