MIFAREExperience the Smart City of Tomorrow MIFARE Solutions Transfomr the Way You Access Services in 750+ Cities

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 work on access services, and enables contactless transit, payment, and access experiences for everyone, independent of location and time.

Enhanced Guest Experiences with NXP's New MIFARE Hospitality IC

Designed for quick integration into Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) key cards, MIFARE Hospitality offers enhanced security with seamless guest interactions, so hotel owners and hotel brands can issue basic guest cards that support secure hotel room access while enabling high-demanded mobile features, such as Wi-Fi pairing, adding customized guest information, and easy sign-ups to the hotel’s brand loyalty program for discounts and additional offers.

The MIFARE 2GO Cloud Service is Here

Transforming public transport as we know it: The new MIFARE 2GO cloud service manages digitized MIFARE product-based credentials onto mobile and wearable devices. With MIFARE 2GO, traditional transit passes can be easily managed and used on NFC-enabled devices. NXP and Google have integrated NXP's MIFARE 2GO with Google Pay, for seamless mobile travel experiences.


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.
