Gemalto suministra su tarjeta SIM UpTeq NFC a MTS Russia para servicios móviles de transporte

Gemalto (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO), el líder mundial en seguridad digital, está suministrando a Mobile TeleSystems (MTS, por sus siglas en inglés), el operador de redes más grande de Rusia con más de 70 millones de suscriptores, sus tarjetas SIM de alta gama UpTeq NFC para una solución de boletos para el transporte público basada en telefonía móvil en la ciudad de Novosibirsk. Producida y personalizada en el centro de servicios de Gemalto de Moscú, la solución puede ofrecer una mayor eficiencia y capacidad de respuesta para el rápido despliegue del programa NFC de MTS. Solo Gemalto proporciona a sus clientes rusos una amplia experiencia y presencia local en los sectores de telecomunicaciones, operaciones bancarias y transporte.

Operado junto con Zolotaya Korona, un sistema ruso de pago y transferencia de dinero, el servicio de emisión de billetes les permite a los usuarios pagar sus viajes en buses y en el metro, en Novosibirsk, la tercera ciudad más grande del condado, simplemente tocando su teléfono móvil en un lector NFC. Para que la calidad sea óptima, el servicio será facturado a los usuarios por medio de sus esquemas de facturación habitual de MTS. Más del 95 % de los molinetes y de las terminales de transporte público en Novosibirsk ya están equipados con lectores NFC, y el nuevo sistema está diseñado para reemplazar los actuales boletos de papel. Las filas de clientes se acortarán, y mejorará el servicio ofrecido por la red de transporte público en toda la ciudad.

A medida que la tecnología NFC traspasa el reino del pago sin contacto, el transporte está emergiendo como una de las aplicaciones más importantes, y nuestro Upteq NFC SIM es la plataforma ideal para implementar una amplia gama de servicios en el futuro — manifestó Thierry Mesnard, vicepresidente ejecutivo de Gemalto—. Los despliegues de alto perfil, como el proyecto MTS en Novosibirsk, tendrán un impacto significativo y lograrán que los usuarios finales se acostumbren a tocar su teléfono móvil para disfrutar de los servicios NFC".

“¿Será el 2013 el año de NFC? Mi respuesta es sí. Hemos llegado a un punto sin retorno, en donde el NFC será incluido en los productos, aplicaciones y servicios de las empresas. La base instalada aumentará a más de 500 millones de dispositivos. Eso nos proporciona una creciente variedad de cosas que se podrán conseguir con solo tocar nuestros teléfonos”, añadió John Devlin, analista principal para ABI Research.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
