London, 21 February 2017: Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) today announced the launch of the Visa Innovation Center London, located at its European headquarters in Paddington Basin. The 1,000+ square meter space, the largest in Visa’s global network of innovation centers, is an immersive environment where Visa can work side-by-side with financial institutions, merchants and other partners to develop the next generation of payment solutions.

The space features practical demonstrations to excite and engage visitors, including applications of the Internet of Things (IoT) in connected car and connected home environments, such paying for car insurance or placing a grocery order from a refrigerator. Visitors will also experience the future of retail using virtual reality to pick just the right seat for an upcoming Formula E race and biometric authentication to pay for tickets.

Visa also announced today that fintech developers across Europe will now be able to take advantage of the Visa Developer Platform to create new, secure ways to pay. Developers at merchants, financial institutions, technology companies and startups can now select from an initial set of Visa payment APIs (Application Program Interfaces), SDKs (Software Development Kits), and documentation to create the next generation of commerce applications.

Rajesh Agrawal, Deputy Mayor for Business, said:

“London is a global fintech leader because we have been able to combine our traditional strength in financial services with our growing talent for tech and our innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. As a successful fintech entrepreneur myself, I understand that quite often businesses need a little bit of help to turn the kernel of a good idea into something truly transformative. I am therefore delighted that Visa is launching this new innovation center in London, bolstering our flourishing global tech and fintech reputation and proving that London is open to great ideas and innovation.”

Visa Innovation Center London

The new center in London joins a global network of innovation centers and studios located in technology hotspots, including Berlin, Dubai, Miami, San Francisco, Singapore, Sao Paulo and Tel Aviv.

“What makes the approach we take in our innovation centers unique is that they’re all about collaborating with clients to solve real world, consumer pain points or business problems using digital solutions,” said Jim McCarthy, Executive Vice President for Innovation and Strategic Partnerships at Visa. “We’ve had great success doing this in our centers globally and are very excited to be opening a state-of-the art facility in Europe.”

As the payments industry shifts from plastic to digital and new entrants join traditional stakeholders in payments, Visa’s mission is to ensure that every Internet-connected device, appliance or wearable can become a secure place for commerce. Visa’s global network of innovation centers are an important part of this mission by fostering innovation and creating an environment that enables Visa to engage, experience and collaborate with a broad range of partners and clients:

  • Engage: The Center’s immersive environment provides clients and partners with everything they need to work on new digital solutions – in a physical space designed to encourage dynamic interaction, real-time experimentation and rapid prototyping.
  • Experience: Visa emphasises a human-centered design approach where product development is customer-focused and delivers real benefits for users.
  • Collaborate: Clients and partners can interact with Visa payment experts and access Visa technology. This includes APIs and SDKs available through the Visa Developer Platform.

Telefónica, Facebook partner to reduce Digital Divide

TELEFONICA DIGITAL

At the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) Summit, Telefónica S.A.and Facebook announced a joint collaboration to reduce the digital divide in Latin America (LatAm) by targeting challenges to rural connectivity. Both companies share a common goal to reduce the number of under- and unconnected people and are committed to using innovative technologies and approaches to solve these problems. The companies began this collaboration over a year ago as members of TIP and plan to contribute lessons learned back to TIP and the broader community.

Being connected to the internet leads to a better quality of life. A report by the World Bank estimates that for every 10 percent increase in high-speed Internet connections in a given country, there is a corresponding 1.3 percent increase in GDP. But today over 4 billion people globally do not have reliable access and are cut off from information on employment and education, in addition to social, governmental, and health services.

The collaboration between Telefónica and Facebook has begun with projects in Peru, where there are more than eight million under- and unconnected people in rural and peri-urban areas, and will expand to apply lessons learned across LatAm. Peru and the broader LatAm region’s varied terrain and harsh climate can increase the cost of connectivity, which is compounded by the fact that today´s mobile internet technology has been designed and optimized for cities and high-density areas.

Telefónica and Facebook will address these rural and peri-urban connectivity challenges by combining innovative approaches and solutions including using new network technologies (both in access and backhaul); reframing operating models; and involving telecom players in new ways. This includes deploying alternative access solutions like OpenCellular, an open-source, disaggregated wireless access platform that Facebook contributed to TIP to improve connectivity in remote areas of the world.

In addition, both companies will use high-definition population density data sets combined with Telefónica’s business intelligence tools to improve network planning. This population density data combines satellite imagery and census data to understand population distributions and inform where to deploy connectivity solutions.

David Del Val, Director of Product Innovation at Telefónica, commented, “Telefónica’s mission is to create connections so people can enrich their lives and enable them to access a world of possibilities. This collaboration with Facebook and TIP is an example of how we can bring together technological, commercial and operational innovations to reduce the digital divide in remote and inaccessible areas of Latin America”.

Aaron Bernstein, Director of Connectivity Ecosystem Programs at Facebook, said, “Our collaboration with Telefónica in Latin America is an important example of how we’re working to overcome barriers that prevent people from getting much-needed connectivity. Ensuring that everyone in the world has reliable and affordable internet access is key to Facebook’s core mission of building global community and bringing the world closer together.”
