Other Future Technologies
Near Field Communication (NFC)
A short range, high frequency wireless communication technology which enables the exchange of data between devices over about a 10 centimeter (around 4 inches) distance.
The technology is a simple extension of the proximity-card standard (contactless card, RFID) that combines the interface of a smartcard and a reader into a single device.
NFC is primarily aimed at usage in mobile phones. Conduent is a member of the NFC forum and works on the standardisation of ticketing applications.
Contactless credit cards (Pay Wave, Touch N Go etc)
Contactless Credit Cards are credit cards, which use RFID for making secure payments. The embedded chip and antenna enable consumers to wave their card over a reader at the point of sale. SHIBLON Solution Excellence are currently working with Red Crater Software Solutions to develop a Mifare based solution for Wintech (Hamilton), so that students can use the cards currently used for building access and their photocopying, to also pay for their parking.
SHIBLON Solution Excellence along with its card payment provider are currently developing a PCI/EMV compliant unattended EftPOS solution for the Conduent APM’s. This will be available to customers at the latest by the end of 2009. Discussions have started to develop a similar solution for the Hectronic Parking Meters.
