Contactless tickets on Smartphones via NFC

Billetterie mobile NFC - HCE

Contactless tickets on Smartphones via NFC, compliant with NFC and ticketing standard.

Mobile ticketing via NFC allows travellers to substitute their transport tickets, cards and passes with their smartphones. Already used for mobile payment, the NFC technology embedded in most mobile phones can also emulate a transport card allowing passengers to purchase and validate their tickets on their phone. 

Very easy and convenient to use, it is also extremely secure and gives the best experience to customers. 

Paragon ID has partnered with Wizway Solutions who is the sole industrial player in Europe providing a comprehensive NFC platform, having access to hardware security solutions (such as the Secure Element embedded in Samsung smartphones) and software security solutions such as Paragon ID's HCE (Host Card Emulation) technology.

Host card Emulation is a technology that enables software emulation of a traditional smartcard to enable a mobile device to act as a virtual representation of a contactless smartcard.
