The CIPURSE open security standard adresses the need for future-proof transit fare collection systems with a higher level of security than is currently in use. Fare collection solutions based on CIPURSE provide state-of-the-art technology and security for transit operations of the 21st century.
As an open standard, CIPURSE promotes vendor neutrality, cross-vendor system interoperability and lower technology adoption risks - all of which result in lonwer operating costs and greater flexibility for transport system operators. CIPURSE is also the way to achive cross-device, cross-transit-system commonality and faster transition to the use of NFC devices. It is portable to memory, controller and NFC platforms. The CIPURSE standard also offers a royalty structure in keeping with the spirit of open standards. Transport operators and other users of products will not have to pay additional fees.
