OSPT Alliance grants Infineon, Oberthur Technologies latest CIPURSE certification

12/02/15

The Open Standard for Public Transport (OSPT Alliance) has announced that Infineon Technologies and Oberthur Technologies are the first companies to have products certified to the latest version of CIPURSE, an advanced foundation for developing interoperable fare collection systems.  

OSPT Alliance has granted the certification for Infineon’s SLS 32TLC100(M), a dedicated security controller for transport and ticketing applications, and Oberthur Technologies’ cityGo CIPURSE range.

The latest amendment of the specification – version 2.2 – includes the universal multiple proximity system environment, which enables terminals to better identify and select the required application on a security chip.

According to the OSPT, the objective of the CIPURSE certification programme is to provide transport authorities and public transport operators with confidence that the products they implement in their solutions are compatible and interoperable with the transport and ticketing ecosystems.

“We are delighted that two of our members have received the CIPURSE v2 certification for their transit products and are now able to use the official ‘CIPURSE Certified’ logo,” said Laurent Cremer, executive director of the OSPT Alliance.

“Along with its members, OSPT Alliance is dedicated to meeting the industry’s requirements for an open, interoperable and flexible ecosystem for advanced fare collection solutions. We are continuing to advance both the CIPURSE standard and associated certification programmes to ensure that they meet the evolving and advancing needs of the industry.”
