Webinar: Automatic Fare Collection: A Cutting Edge Migration Case Study – How to Ensure Smooth System Upgrades and Exploit Convergence Possibilities 4. April 2016
Date: Thursday April 21, 2016
Time: 4 pm (GMT) | 5 pm (CET)
The accelerated use of contactless technologies and the convergence of multiple applications demands secure, proven and stable technologies which also have the flexibility to benefit from future technology and application trends. The Sistema Único de Boleto Electrónico card (the SUBE card) has recently been a huge success in Argentina, and Eurotransport’s forthcoming webinar, hosted by NXP Semiconductors, will give a platform for delegates to learn about SUBE’s challenges, experiences and solutions in upgrading with NXP’s MIFARE Plus® product family and the wide range of application possibilities that opened up through their move.
This webinar will show how Nacion Servicios – the public transport operator responsible for SUBE’s AFC system – migrated their automatic fare collection system to a new level of high security, granting the possibility to expand their operation to other cities in Argentina. The webinar will consist of two 15-20 minute presentations, as well as a Q&A session where delegates have the opportunity to ask questions directly to our speakers.
Presentations will come from NXP Semiconductors’ Miguel Padula – Business Development Manager South America AFC & Banking, and Johannes Grüll – Product Marketing Manager MIFARE Classic & MIFARE Plus.
Miguel is responsible for developing AFC and Banking business in South America, supporting main AFC migration and banking convergence in the region. Johannes is globally responsible for the go-to-market and pricing strategy for the MIFARE Classic and MIFARE Plus product families. Johannes is engaged in different application segments from access management and public transport to gaming and many more.
