New accreditation by Discover for Mobile Cloud Payment Solutions (DCP)

Discover accredits CTC advanced for testing Discover Mobile Cloud Payment Solutions

CTC advanced is now accredited for testing Discover Mobile Cloud Payment Solutions (DCP).

Testing according to DCP is a requirement for enabling a Discover payment application on a mobile phone or similar HCE (Host Card Emulation) device.


With this new service, the highly experienced CTC advanced team completes its test portfolio in multiple ways:
On one hand, DCP complements the existing Discover based portfolio for card and terminal testing, it furthermore adds another payment scheme to CTC advanced’s accredited services for cloud based payment approvals.
Customers are not required to consult different test labs anymore, when desiring HCE approvals for various payment schemes.


“No doubt, mobile payment is one of the important evolutions in the economy when it comes to cashless payment. Being in a position to support applet designers in enabling their implementations on HCE devices regardless of the envisaged payment scheme underlines our steady efforts in providing our customers a unique service experience.”, says Thomas Velhagen, Head of Smart Card Technologies at CTC advanced, Saarbruecken/Germany.
