The evolution of Smart Cities is, in many ways, directly tied to the evolution of MIFARE®, NXP‘s leading brand for contactless solutions. First deployed in 1994, MIFARE ICs were originally developed for automated fare collection in public transport, but that was just the beginning. Since then, MIFARE continues to pave the way how millions of people around the world access services, and enables contactless transit, payment, and access experiences for everyone, independent of location and time.

Part of MIFARE’s appeal is that it offers something for everyone. Government agencies, businesses, and service operators use it to lower costs, add flexibility, increase control, and deliver better consumer interactions. At the same time, MIFARE helps citizens feel safe and secure, and contributes to sustainable prosperity.
By supporting true multi-application functionality, mobile formats, and offering certified Common Criteria security, MIFARE ICs combine convenience with efficiency. Choosing MIFARE products means choosing a solution that is already available in a widespread infrastructure, and that means reduced startup costs and greater scalability. MIFARE ICs can interact with Near Field Communication (NFC), and communicating through NFC means that MIFARE products can also be managed and implemented via NFC-enabled mobile devices, such as smartphones, watches, and more.
