---------------------------
Ingenico Group, Oberthur Technologies and Vodafone join forces to
revolutionize payment terminal connectivity with Ingenico
Connectivity/Manager

Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346 - ING), the global leader in seamless
payment, OT (Oberthur Technologies), a leading global provider of embedded
security software products, services and solutions, and Vodafone announced
that they have been collaborating to define a disruptive connectivity
management solution based on embedded Universal Integrated Circuit Card
(eUICC). This partnership brings together the best of their know-how to
revolutionize payment terminal connectivity in an agile way.

By joining forces, Ingenico, Vodafone and OT will make the remote management
of payment terminals' cellular connectivity a reality thanks to
Connectivity/Manager. This tripartite solution leverages OT's eUICC and
remote subscription management solution, Ingenico's smart terminals as well
as Vodafone's global IoT communications platform, and eliminates all logistic
constraints toward SIM management. Enabling both the remote installation and
management of operator profiles, it will dramatically improve operational
efficiency, and also enhance merchants' experience with better connectivity
and ready-to-use payment terminal. This pioneering solution will provide
unequalled quality of service and increase opportunities for acquirers&estate
owners around the globe.

"We are delighted to work with Ingenico and Vodafone to optimize global
connectivity management of POS during their entire lifespan. Our solution
will also simplify the worldwide distribution of the POS and enable Ingenico
to deliver an improved connectivity service to acquirers and merchants thanks
to primary connectivity and back-up subscriptions hosted in the same eUICC.
This will increase the transaction success rate by avoiding transaction
failures related to temporary loss of connectivity

"

said Pierre Barrial, Managing Director of the Connected Device Makers activity
at OT."This is a strategic project for us, in line with our ambition to
provide our
OEM and MNO customers with the best solution to manage connectivity in a
secure and flexible way across the variety of devices and equipment that
constitute the Internet of Things.

"

"

Ecosystems and partnerships are going to be critical in the continued success
of IoT and I believe that this relationship will prove to be a powerful and
successful one for the POS industry,"

highlighted Vodafone head of IoT Ivo Rook.

"

This solution will dramatically change the way terminals estate owners manage
connectivity. Nowadays, ensuring a merchant's payment terminal is operational
accounts for up to 17% of the overall terminal TCO. With this new solution,
the payment terminal will embed a SIM that can be set and updated
over-the-air. Thus estates will be managed more efficiently. Field services
around SIM card logistics will become redundant, which will save estate
owners time and costs while simplifying merchants'

set-up,"

explained Jacques Guérin, EVP Smart terminals for Ingenico Group.
