AblePay BlueCard is a SIM/SAM with embedded BLE

AblePay BlueCard is enriched with a fully embedded Bluetooth 5 Low Energy (BLE) radio and antenna inside the card. The card may be used in a payment terminal or with it easily tailored operating system, as SIM card in standard mobile phones. Deployed as a SIM card, user interaction is performed trough SIM Toolkit (STK).

AblePay BlueCard is available in 2FF, 3FF and 4FF SIM card formats and provides a cost-efficient platform for a range of new proximity services within payment and beaconing. The AblePay BlueCard is the key element for building low-cost contactless merchant payment infrastructures and administered beacon infrastructures.

Our technology is a result of on 10 years’ development at Telenor and SINTEF. SINTEF is the largest independent research organization in Scandinavia, and AblePay holds several patents protecting the technology.
