Now a part of Rambus’ security division, Ecebs provides smartcard solutions for governments, transport operators, banks and systems integrators. This makes Rambus one of the leading providers of ITSO-compliant smart ticketing solutions.
The strategic addition of Ecebs to our security division has allowed us to create a more comprehensive and dynamic product stack. At the base, we enable foundational security with our DPA technology, architecture and design. The second level of the stack helps customers facilitate secure provisioning and management with CryptoManager, which is built around a hardware-based root-of-trust. The third level, or top tier of the stack, offers smart ticketing (viaEcebs) and mobile payments (via Bell ID).
Perhaps most importantly, Rambus CryptoManager can be deployed to configure devices and optimize security “downstream,” effectively targeting a wide range of applications at the consumer level. Integrating Ecebs’ smart ticketing platform with CryptoManager will help us design a versatile set of solutions for in-field provisioning, mobile cloud-based services and secure ticketing schemes.
Indeed, the rapid adoption of secure, contactless smartcards by public transport systems around the world is only the beginning of a global smart ticketing revolution.
To share, copy and paste the code below:
The smart city of the future will be defined by public transport systems that offer convenience and ease of travel. This is precisely why public transport operators are working together with companies like Rambus to ensure journeys become as simple as possible for passengers.
We believe smart ticketing will continue to evolve along with consumer expectations for friction-free commerce in multiple spaces. To be sure, passengers in certain cities are already able to use their device of choice to travel seamlessly from location to location and system to system.
Of course, buying and storing train or bus tickets is only part of the smart ticketing equation for future smart cities. Using a smartphone or wearable as a hub, passengers will be able to purchase food and other items, reserve parking spaces, update travel plans in real-time, interact with augmented reality (AR) and Bluetooth beacons, view luggage status and even replace current paper travel documents, such as passports.
At Rambus, we are working to further develop and enhance our suite of smart ticketing software for cloud-based, secure ticketing systems. We are excited about the future of smart travel and all of the potential new market opportunities that innovative smart-ticketing solutions, programs and services can provide.
