lenovobeijingOT (Oberthur Technologies) have announced the commercial launch of Lenovo Transit application with the electronic payment and settlement service provider BMAC (Beijing Municipal Administration and Communications Card Co.,Ltd.) on Lenovo X3 smartphones thanks to the eSE PEARL by OT®.

With OT’s NFC embedded Secure Element, end-users can now use their Lenovo X3 smartphone to install the Beijing Municipal Administration Traffic Card in their Lenovo Transit application and commute simply by waving their phone in front of contactless transit terminals.

It allows easy deployment of secure mobile contactless payment, transit, governmental and automotive applications, as well as secure access to online services for enterprise and consumer markets.

“China is often at the forefront of new technologies and we are happy to offer Lenovo users with a convenient, secure and easy-to-use way of commuting with the BMAC application” said Viken Gazarian, Deputy Managing Director of the Connected Device Makers business at OT. “PEARL by OT® is the best eSE on the market to address the fragmented market of transport systems throughout the world and is the sole component to support international as well as Chinese transit technologies.”

In addition to its eSE, OT provides its Key Management System to Lenovo to manage security domains on the eSE in which partners can securely load, install and run their applications. Via its China Secure Hub, a platform used to connect handset makers and their partners in different cities in China, OT also securely ensures the connectivity between Lenovo and BMAC’s TSM provider, Beijing eNFC science and technology co ltd.

“We are pleased to collaborate with OT to offer our customers this new transport application securely stored and enabled in our X3 smartphones thanks to OT’s flagship NFC eSE” said Richard Wang, Director of Portofolio Team at Lenovo.
