Philippe Vappereau, CEO at Calypso Networks Association (CNA) provides an overview of Calypso, an open contactless ticketing standard for the transport world built on values of openness, security and interoperability, managed by the CNA association.

In response to operators’ demand for dematerialization, CNA has specified and implemented all possible solutions to integrate Calypso into NFC smartphones: applet for SIM cards or Secure Element, HCE solution. These Calypso/NFC solutions bring unquestionably the best ergonomics to the customer, a better flow management and a better security to the operator. They are perfectly adapted to MaaS because they allow operators to offer travelers seamless, end-to-end ticketing services.

Many use cases are currently being developed in transport networks using the Calypso standard.
