Smart ticketing collaboration promises new mobility services
The companies will combine their expertise on the CIPURSE open security standard for transit fare collection systems to provide end users a comprehensive choice of solutions for future proof transport ticketing solutions. CIPURSE is supported by a global community of members of the OSPT Alliance, of which both companies are key supporters and board members.
In the collaboration, Rambus will provide its Host Card Emulation Ticket Wallet Service and Remote Ticket Download solutions to deliver secure download and storage of tickets on NFC-enabled smartphones and the ability to deliver tickets remotely to smartcards. Along with Infineon’s CIPURSE smart ticketing products, the companies say they will both be able to better deliver a high level of security for the international smart ticketing market, with mobile and smart card ticketing working in tandem.
“Through our collaboration with Infineon,” says Russell McCullagh, vice president and general manager of Rambus Ticketing, “we will be able to increase global trust and awareness of the benefits of this open standards-based approach, which can help make public transport ticketing more accessible for all transport scenarios, whether passengers are on rail, bus or ferry.”
Bernardo Knoblich, head of Transport Ticketing Product Line of Infineon Technologies says: “Our expanded collaboration with Rambus is underlining Infineon’s commitment to open standards-based solutions. Innovative services where smart card-based ticketing is deployed along with mobile solutions on a global scale will improve user convenience and hence drive adoption of new mobility services.”
