A “true universal approach to the transport market” is how Gemalto describes the next generation of their UpTeq NFC SIM card. This is because it has an embedded MIFARE4Mobile v2 application which supports multiple transport applications from different city networks. Simply put it means you can use your phone for mobile ticketing globally wherever MIFARE Classic® and DESFire® is used.
Gemalto’s press release states: “It is compatible with existing infrastructures and makes the need to carry several tickets or travel cards become a thing of the past. Simultaneously transportation providers can enjoy efficient deployment of enhanced digital ticketing solutions and savings on operation costs via a fully standardized mobile approach.”
