GlobalPlatform to Deliver Technical Training Session in London, UK
Delegates will learn how development of applications in line with standardized, proven secure-chip specifications can save money and reduce time to market
19 March 2014 – Standardization body GlobalPlatform has announced that its latest training session will be held in London at the Novotel London Excel, from 15-17 April 2014. The technical training program provides application developers, chip manufacturers and service providers with an understanding of how to leverage the free-to-download GlobalPlatform Specifications and the benefits of managing secure-chip applications in a standardized environment.
GlobalPlatform will host a two-day card specification training session to educate delegates on how its specifications can support the deployment and management of one or more applications residing on several different platforms. It also addresses how applications from a range of markets can securely reside on the same platform by isolating the service, without impacting market interoperability or restricting the functions of the application. “Service providers using GlobalPlatform Specifications, therefore, can adapt their business models, in terms of security and functionality, for different audiences and environments,” explains Kevin Gillick, Executive Director at GlobalPlatform. “The specifications provide a great framework for service providers to innovate while saving money and time to market.”
Following the two-day session, GlobalPlatform will host a one day contactless training session on 17 April, which focuses exclusively on the role of GlobalPlatform Specifications in relation to contactless-enabled services on mobile platforms. Key topics to be covered include how GlobalPlatform’s technology supports the mobile wallet, trusted service manager (TSM) messaging and secure element management.
Kevin continues: “Service providers are converging their offering onto a common platform, such as a mobile device. GlobalPlatform Specifications help to isolate the services, while still promoting ecosystem interoperability and without impacting the richness of the service. This is among the many reasons why GlobalPlatform Specifications continue to gain traction, and demand for our training sessions continues to grow.”
The two-day card specification training session is open to both GlobalPlatform members and non-members at a fee of US $1,595 and US $2,195 respectively. Organizations sending two students will receive a discount of US $200 per student. Organizations sending three or more students will receive a discount of US $350 per student.
The GlobalPlatform for Contactless Training session is also open to both GlobalPlatform members and non-members at a fee of US $995 and US $1,295 respectively. Organizations sending two students will receive a discount of US $100 per student. Organizations sending three of more students will receive a discount of US $200 per student.
