The Digital Security sector offers integrated coverage of digital security technologies — from information technologies to operational control processes. With end-to-end security research from the silicon, all the way up to cyber-based and IoT applications, the sector focuses on technology trends, in addition to industry-specific implementation. Specifically, the technology research covers hardware, packaging, device, appliances, software, platform, networks, and services for organizations, as well as for specific industries such as finance, government, defense, healthcare, energy, transport, and of course telecommunication.
The transportation and ticketing market is one that has been traditionally driven at a local city level. To date, contactless ticketing deployments have been localized, producing a fragmented market with different cities within the same country operating different specifications with little or no interoperability. The market now looks at moving to nationwide standards, with governments outlining specifications to create nationwide interoperable transportation network cards, allowing one credential to be utilized over a number of networks and transport types. Although this is reducing fragmentation on a national level it is moving further away from an internationally recognized standard, creating further fragmentation on the international scene.
This report focuses on those standards and specifications currently available within the ticketing market and the impact that national specifications are having on emerging and well established protocols. The report outlines ABI Research’s view of likely market progression and how, if at all, established standards and specifications can win out.
