Gemalto liefert UpTeq NFC-SIM-Karte an MTS Russia für mobile Dienste im Personenverkehr

Gemalto (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO), das weltweit führende Unternehmen auf dem Gebiet der digitalen Sicherheit, beliefert Mobile TeleSystems (MTS), den mit über 70 Millionen Teilnehmern größten Netzbetreiber Russlands, mit seinen High-End-SIM-Karten vom Typ UpTeq NFC, die im Rahmen einer auf Mobiltelefonen basierenden Ticketlösung für den öffentlichen Personennahverkehr in der Stadt Nowosibirsk eingesetzt werden sollen. Die im Moskauer Service-Zentrum von Gemalto hergestellte und personalisierte Lösung kann durch Effizienzsteigerung und größere Kundennähe zur schnelleren Umsetzung des NFC-Programms von MTS beitragen. Gemalto ist in der einzigartigen Lage, seinen russischen Kunden in den Branchen Telekommunikation, Banken und Transportwesen fundierte Fachkenntnisse und Präsenz vor Ort anzubieten.

Mithilfe des Ticketing-Services, der Hand in Hand mit Zolotaya Korona, einem russischen Zahlungs- und Geldüberweisungssystem, betrieben wird, können Benutzer Fahrten in den Bussen und der U-Bahn von Nowosibirsk durch „Tappen“ ihres Mobiltelefons an einem NFC-Lesegerät bezahlen. Um diese Art des Ticketkaufs so einfach wie möglich zu machen, erscheinen die Fahrtgebühren als Posten in der gewohnten MTS-Abrechnung der Abonnenten. Über 95 Prozent der Drehkreuze im öffentlichen Verkehrssystem von Nowosibirsk, der drittgrößten Stadt Russlands, sind bereits mit NFC-Lesegeräten ausgestattet, und das neue System soll die derzeit verwendeten Papierfahrkarten ablösen. Künftig wird die Benutzung der Transportmittel im gesamten Nahverkehrsnetz der Stadt durch kürzere Anstehzeiten angenehmer gestaltet.

Die NFC-Technologie ist dabei, sich über den Bereich des kontaktlosen Bezahlens hinaus zu entwickeln und der Nahverkehr kristallisiert sich als eines der wichtigsten Anwendungsgebiete heraus. Unsere Upteq NFC SIM-Karte ist für die künftige Einführung einer großen Palette von Diensten besonders geeignet“, so Thierry Mesnard, Senior Vice President bei Gemalto. „Viel beachtete Installationen der Technologie, wie das Projekt von MTS in Nowosibirsk, üben einen großen Einfluss aus und sorgen dafür, dass Endnutzer sich daran gewöhnen, NFC-Dienste durch „Tappen“ des Mobiltelefons zu nutzen.“

„Ist 2013 das Jahr der NFC-Technologie? Meine Antwort ist ein klares Ja. Wir haben einen Punkt erreicht, an dem es feststeht, dass die NFC-Technologie in die Produkte, Apps und Dienste von Unternehmen integriert wird. Die Zahl der Installationen wird auf eine halbe Milliarde Geräte und darüber hinaus anwachsen. Damit steht jedem Einzelnen von uns eine wachsende Vielfalt von Dingen zur Verfügung, mit denen unsere Handys durch Tappen kommunizieren können“, ergänzte John Devlin, Principal Analyst bei ABI Research.

In today's uber-connected, consumer-centric, cloud-enabled, insights-driven, multi-device, global world, the focus of solutions has shifted from the product that is sold to the person who is buying the product or service. Enterprises have rebranded their business around the consumers of their products. The buyer is the person and the focus is not on the offering. The person is connected through multiple devices, wearables, at home, on the road, and in multiple locations, sometimes simultaneously...

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Erik Perotti, Senior Manager of New Ventures on Plantronics’ Innovation team, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it ...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that.
