NFC payments and Internet backup. Three’s network to power near field communication (NFC) and contactless payment devices as well as mobile backup for data services .Premium machine-to-machine (M2M) specialist Mobius has selected Three Wholesale to power the retail and hospitality trade’s secure connected devices. Three’s award-winning* Ultrafast network will power NFC and contactless payment terminals which will be used to process customers’ orders and transactions. It will also be used to back up fixed-line data connections during outages.
Mobius holds Payment Card Industry accreditation and provides a high security private mobile pathway, sending all data across secure connections. The high data M2M market is a key focus area for Three, an operator that already carries 42 per cent of the UK’s mobile data traffic. Lynda Burton, Director of Three Wholesale, said: “The M2M market is going Ultrafast.

The Three network is available to the M2M market through carefully selected wholesale partnerships. So we’re delighted to announce this latest agreement with Mobius.”
