IDEMIA makes urban mobility easier in Lisbon with Cosmo Fly, the first EMV Dual Interface payment card certified by the Calypso Networks Association
IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, is excited to offer an Urban Mobility solution on the back of its alliance with SIBS and Otlis, the consortium of 7 transport operators that manages the interoperability in Lisbon and the common system shared by 27 mobility operators.
In an increasingly connected world, electronic solutions are popping up everywhere and dual interface payment cards are now common in people’s wallets even if they are put to just one use – namely payments.
Meanwhile IDEMIA has developed a new payment card called Cosmo Fly that comes with new services including Urban Mobility, enabling cardholders to buy public transport tickets directly from their bank’s transport partner. The tickets are stored in their payment card and can be used immediately. This solution is very convenient for commuters as they pay and travel using just one card.
While open-loop systems require connected EMV gates and bank administrative support, Cosmo Fly cards behave just like standard e-tickets. What’s more, being CNA certified means that the card is fully compatible with existing transport networks… Give your passengers a faster, easier, more convenient experience!
Transport operators can derive major benefits from the Dual Interface migration in the financial sector. At IDEMIA we are thrilled to be the first company to provide a contactless transport solution compatible with Calypso technology.
Our certification policy ensures compliance to the specifications and that the security and interoperability of Calypso products are respected. We are very pleased to add the first payment-transportation card using the CNA Java applet to our range of certified products, and we thank Idemia for enriching and diversifying the Calypso offer.
