What does this webinar cover?

MIFARE contactless technology has been widely adopted, particularly within the transport and access sectors, and is now ready to cross over from cards and tickets to mobile devices.

The GSMA and the MIFARE4Mobile Industry Group have worked with industry experts on new GSMA MIFARE4Mobile Implementation Guidelines that offer guidance on interoperability and standardisation between MIFARE transport ticketing implementations on NFC-enabled devices.

This “Tap to travel” webinar will give you deep insight into the guidelines, including details on technical considerations for implementation and information on delivering consistent user experiences.

This free to attend, 45-minute webinar offers a unique opportunity to learn from domain experts with real-world experience of delivering NFC-based ticketing services.

You’ll also hear best practice recommendations and learn about preferred implementation options, and find out about the migration path from existing mobile MIFARE solutions to MIFARE4Mobile.

This webinar is of benefit to anyone working in transportation, mass transit, ticketing and access control, public transport, large venues and more — anyone, in fact, who would like to learn more about how future ticketing solutions can move from paper and plastic to secure solutions on mobile devices.
