Transportation Ticketing Standards – CiPurse, MiFare, Calypso & FeliCa

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.
