Giesecke & Devrient is the first SIM card provider to receive both the product certification from NXP Semiconductors for MIFARE Classic and from the MIFARE4Mobile Industry Group for MIFARE4Mobile v2.
With this first certified SIM platform – SkySIM CX Hercules – G&D provides a SIM card for secure remote provisioning and management of MIFARE-based services for mobile network operators, trusted services managers and service providers.
The SkySIM CX Hercules from G&D is based on a powerful processor and offers enough storage capacity for several transactions to run simultaneously at high speed. Since it supports the contactless technologies such as MIFARE (Classic, DESFire, EV1) and Calypso, users benefit from a highly secure SIM when using their devices as an electronic ticket, for example in public transport or at events of any kind, or for identifying themselves when passing through physical access control systems.
MIFARE in Mobile is rolled out in 16 cities already.
